Haitian School Children

Our Mission

Our purpose is to empower the next generation with clean water initiatives, humanitarian aid, micro-finance projects and various other advocacy programs which create and sustain life in developing nations.

About Us

Gen1 Project, Inc is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation based in Texas, which was established in 2016.


"I believe developing countries are full of entrepreneurs, visionaries, and world changers.  With access to clean water, education, and effective mentorship, these talented people will play a key role in improving life, not just for themselves and the generations to follow, but for their entire country as a whole.."
