Commitment to Action

Sustainable Neighborhoods for Wellbeing and Happiness

Commitment by

Ramsey Social Justice Foundation

In 2015, The Ramsey Social Justice Foundation and the City of Tempe, in partnership with Arizona State University, Habitat for Humanity, and New Course, committed $630,000 to revitalize two marginalized neighborhoods in Arizona and Guatemala through the community-driven Sustainable Neighborhoods for Wellbeing and Happiness project. The project will retrofit 30 homes in Guatemala and 150 in Tempe, Arizona, and develop skills training for 30 women and 60 smallholder farmers. By engaging local residents in the planning and implementation process, the project aims to create localized, sustainable solutions to each neighborhood’s most pressing needs and improve the overall health of community members. Ultimately, the project goal is to advance a global framework for sustainable neighborhood development and revitalization.
