The Tohono O'odham are a group of Native American people who reside primarily in the Sonoran Desert of southeastern Arizona and northwest Mexico. "Tohono O'odham" means "Desert People."
In an effort to combat high dropout rates among Native Americans and the increasing prevalence of Type II Diabetes, The Native American Advancement Foundation (NAAF) has partnered with the District of Gu'Vo on the Tohono O'odham Nation to support the Gu'Vo Youth Program. This after school program nourishes mind and body with reading, math, and art activities taught by native community members, fitness clinics supervised by the Healthy O'odham Promotion Program (HOPP), and nutritional meals prepared using The Mayo Clinic Kids' Cookbook.
The healthy snacks and dinners are designed to keep the students' minds and bodies active, and in doing so celebrate wellness and community. Eating well is not only good for the body; the brain needs nutrients, too, so that young minds can grow and develop.
You can help. Just $5 provides nutritious, wholesome meals to students in the Gu'Vo Youth Program.
The Native American Advancement Foundation (NAAF) is a 501(c)(3) public charity operating in Tucson, Arizona and Gu'Vo village, Tohono O'odham Nation. NAAF's mission is to assist and promote research-based, community-driven, sustainable development throughout the Tohono O'odham Nation. NAAF's members and volunteers are uniquely qualified to assist their community as they have a personal understanding of the long-term needs and desires of the people of the District and the Nation at large.
Members of Gu'Vo District of the Tohono O'odham Nation established the Native American Advancement Foundation in response to a strong desire to help their community advance in five priority areas: education, arts and culture, health and wellness, housing, and economic development.
