BRIDGE BUILDERS WORLD WIDE NON-PROFIT, INC. (BBWW) was established in 2013 by an international team of expert development practitioners and professionals. Our founders possess long term educational and professional experience in combating HIV/AIDS and drug dependence, provide instruction on treatment and care, and have come together to share knowledge, understanding and successes with the larger international community. BBWW intends to be on the front lines of community changes and challenges, using acquired skills to assist those who are in the highest need. Our organization is a not-for-profit corporation and is tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3) in the United States.
BBWW provides support by partnering with local non-profits and other civil society organizations in foreign countries to accomplish its mission in capacity building, education, and volunteerism. Our aim is to develop and promote models of evidence-based voluntary community based treatment, so people can join in recovery from drug addiction and lead powerful, purposeful, and fulfilling lives.
The Vision of BBWW is a world in which all people have the resources and opportunities to be healthy, feel justly treated and supported; and can in turn, be responsible to those around them.
The Mission of BBWW is to further the introduction, development and maintenance of recovery programs and services throughout the world, and to serve those populations seeking voluntary treatment for addictive diseases.
Current activities include:
Cooperating in all avenues with United Nations goals to have Zero new HIV infections among people who use drugs and to eliminate stigma and discrimination related to people who use drugs and people with PTSD;
Creating and enabling a legal and social environment in countries where we can have the greatest impact;
Collaborating with traditional, cultural, and religious leaders, to deliver evidence-based messages to their communities of influence;
Disseminating tools, best practices, and lessons learned across all areas of BBWW work;
Improving visibility and gathering data related to social exclusion of marginalized populations;
Developing capacities for implementation;
Organizing workshops in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina regarding volunteer opportunities abroad.
BBWW offers its services to all citizens of the world who seek voluntary treatment throughout populations that do not currently have access.
