The main goals of the 2020 Vision Project are to provide clean water and sanitation in developing areas, while also ensuring healthy eyesight and basic eye care becoming the standard all across the world as well as training and supplying medical personnel and supplies. The campaign joins the fight for clean water by creating awareness while building and installing wells, filtration systems, irrigation systems, latrines in the selected areas that needs it most across the globe. The 2020 Vision Project is going to revolutionize something the rest of the world takes for granted; clean water, proper sanitation and basic eye care, all things that most developing countries are desperately in need of.

He serves as one of the pioneers and the Chairman of The Rescue Project organization, a fact he takes great pride in. “For myself, to love is to act and give the very little that you may have. The 2020 Vision Project is the culmination of many years of planning and research, and I am thrilled to be an ongoing part of its operation,” said Resk ‘Que. “This campaign’s launch falls on my birthday, but the top story of the day is getting the word out about The Rescue Project and the 2020 Vision Project. This is exactly what the world needs, and now is the time to act.”
In Africa alone, one out of every five deaths for children under five is due to complications from unclean water, including diseases like cholera. The unsafe water can also lead to the infectious eye disease trachoma. This unsafe water is also used to irrigate crops, leading to poor harvests and the transmission of parasites. These issues are compounded by eyesight problems, which many times are caused by unclean water. Without proper care, these easily treatable conditions become nightmares for those affected, taking away their very ability to function. Through the 2020 Vision Project, these issues will be combated and lead to improved education, vastly improved health conditions and ideal food security.
A child of Africa, Resk ‘Que holds a philanthropic heart and has first-hand experiences with the scarcity of water and the terrible damage that improper vision health can cause, making this plight very close to his heart. After coming to America in his teen years, Resk ‘Que has taken the fashion and business worlds by storm, while also staying true to his roots and never forgetting about the well-being of those in Africa and the rest of the world in need. Resk ‘Que has built a reputation by producing notable New York Fashion Week showcases, while also creating a marketing and PR empire.
