At CFACT, we’re working in local villages in impoverished countries to promote entrepreneurship and technological advance enjoyed by affluent countries, and ultimately achieve environmental and economic prosperity worldwide. Why? We all know these are crucial times in the scientific community and for our world. With a growing world population and limited financial resources, we must ensure adequate supplies of food, energy, clean water, and essential human services without causing damage to our environment or public health. How we answer these challenges is of great importance not only to ourselves but to future generations as well.

CFACT (Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow) is a Washington, D.C. based public policy that focuses on issues of the environment and economic development. At the heart of CFACT, our goal is to “enhance the fruitfulness of the earth and all of its inhabitants”.

We believe the path into the future must be guided by creativity, innovation, and environmental responsibility. Clearly, we must emphasize the development of safe and affordable technologies to help save the lives of the poor, hungry and sick. Already, we have the capability to greatly increase crop yields through agricultural chemicals, to harness the power of the atom for electricity, and to eliminate many life threatening diseases through biotechnology. One can only wonder at the possibilities that lay ahead.

In 2005, CFACT jumpstarted this outreach project in Valle Verde near Cancun, Mexico and is expanding the project to reach villages in Africa. In these villages, CFACT works with local leaders, as well as those from government, business, academia, and NGOs to initiate dynamic and positive change.

CFACT realizes that an earth-centric perspective on environment and development will benefit neither people, nor nature. Rather, we believe that people are the world’s greatest environmental resource. CFACT’s goal through Adopt-A-Village (SEFED) is productivity, prosperity, and prolificacy–not just for people, but for all the earth.
