    project picture
    will give a family a basic food package
    can provide a water/hygiene solution for a family for a month

    give now

    Summary
    This project will provide food/non food items distributions and other forms of emergency relief for displaced communities in Myanmar's flood-hit Rakhine, Magway, Sagaing, Mandalay, and Chin states.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Starting on the 16th of July 2015, massive flooding across nearly 12 of Myanmar's 14 states have taken the lives of over 100 people and affected over 1 million. The destruction is very extensive, creating both short-term immediate needs such as food, water, and shelter, as well as long-term fears of epidemics, loss of livelihood, and the widespread disruption of education.

    Activities
    IsraAID will send an emergency relief team to provide short and assess long-term needs. The first activities will be to provide direct assistance in the form of food and non-food item distributions for impoverished and displaced families. At the same time, to maximize resources, the team will coordinate with other national and international actors to respond to specific needs as they arise. Long-term needs will be considered, based on the developing situation and IsraAID's established expertise

    Potential Long Term Impact
    The short-term provision of emergency supplies will lead directly to the survival of the population in question, while the provision of other forms of relief, such as hygiene kits, water filtration, and mental health and psychsosocial services will assist in the recovery of long-term stability and wellbeing.

    Summary
    Save the Children has been working in Myanmar since 1995 and is well-positioned for a response. We have ongoing programs in the Chin, Magway and Takhine states, expert staff and pre-positioned stocks of relief materials already in the country.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Heavy monsoon rains and rains from a recent cyclone have triggered severe floods, flash floods and landslides in disaster-prone Myanmar. As of today, nearly 590,000 people have been affected, of whom 200,000 are believed to be children. The government has declared states of emergency in the Magway, Rakhine, Chin and Sagaing states. Over 61,000 families have been displaced and over 15,000 homes have been damaged.

    Activities
    Our initial plans are to concentrate on helping to address the water, sanitation, hygiene, and educational needs of children. We will also continue to protect children from exploitation, abuse, violence and neglect. Helping families recover their incomes will also be a priority. We will work directly with children and their families, and also through partners.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Even as we scale up our rapid relief, our teams in Myanmar are planning a long-term recovery initiative to help 60,000 children and adults in the states of Magway, Chin and Rakhine rebound from this disaster. We will continue to assess conditions and adapt our responses to meet the immediate and then longer-term needs of children and their families, based on what we learn.

    Summary
    Tuberculosis (TB) is second only to HIV/AIDS as the greatest killer worldwide due to a single infectious agent (World Health Organization). To address this health epidemic, Discovery Learning Alliance is creating "Inside TB," a film for audiences across sub-Saharan Africa addressing how TB works.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    In a variety of settings, TB and HIV are devastating communities across sub-Saharan Africa. "Inside TB" is a unique approach to TB education, replacing misunderstanding with facts, demystifying the disease and empowering people to make informed health decisions. Discovery Learning Alliance is seeking funding on a continuing basis for distribution and education materials for "Inside TB."

    Activities
    The film will demonstrate the science of how TB works in a personal, practical and memorable way, replacing misunderstanding with facts, demystifying the disease and motivating informed health decisions. The goal will be personal and systemic behavior change that lowers TB infection rates and increases the percentage of people seeking and adhering to treatment.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    In the unlikely event that we are unable to fully fund and produce this film, your donations will be used to support our non-profit projects. Discovery Learning Alliance uses the power of media to transform education and improve lives in marginalized communities around the world. DLA's school-based interventions increase student retention, enrollment, attendance and learning, and critically - student motivation.

  • Live&Learn in Kenya School Classroom Construction
    project picture
    will pay for a chair
    will pay for a desk
    will pay for a medium-sized window

    give now

    Summary
    We are building a high standard primary school in the slums of Nakuru, Kenya so that through free, high quality education very needy children will be able to break out of the vicious circle of extreme poverty. We have 3 classroom built on our own property and must build 5 more classrooms - each costing ,000. Companies or individuals who donate the costs for a classroom can choose a name for the classroom, and there will be a plaque made with the name on it.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    It is a huge challenge to send the children public schools. On the most part, schools are in bad shape and have far too many pupils in a classroom - up to 100 - with only one teacher. Challenged children cannot be helped in this sort of a learning situation and the average or above average pupils have a difficult time concentrating. There is usually no sourse of drinking water and hundreds of children share 2 or 3 latrines. Only children whose parents can pay for meals receive a school meal.

    Activities
    There are only 30 pupils in a class at our school. Volunteers from Kenya and abroad assist the teachers. We provide high quality teaching/learning material for all children. Challenged pupuls are tutored in necessary subjects. Above average pupils are guided and tutored. Sinks with running water are in every classroom and several are attached to the latrines. Breakfast and lunch are provided 6 days the week and during school breaks. We provide medical/dental care and after school activities.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    In nearly 15 years of work in Nakuru we have provided hundreds of children with education, vocational training, nutritious food, foster care for (mostly AIDS) orphans, medical/dental care. Most of the children who have finished their education through LLK now have jobs or are attending universities. Having our own school we can provide high-quality education so that even the poorest of the poor have an equal chance to be all that they can be in life. This will change generations of lives.

  • Disaster Support for Families in Nepal

    Provides a food/cooking pack for 1 family
    Buys 100 children's/family 'healing' coloring books about the earthquake
    0 — Provides temporary shelter for 1 family

    give now

    Summary
    The earthquake that struck Nepal has affected every village in Nepal and completely devastated many. Immediate rescue efforts assisted with the most urgent needs. There are still hundreds of villages and districts near Kathmandu that are still waiting for support. Global Family Village is partnering with the Chhatrapati Free Clinic and Global Family Village-Nepal to assist the victims that are not yet being helped by the government.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    The devastation caused by April 25th Earthquake and the hundreds of aftershocks is now made worse with the arrival of the Monsoon rains. The victims are even more vulnerable and in need of shelter and support. The Monsoons are causing landslides and flooding, a few days ago wiped out an entire village and a most recently, a school. Young children who haven't had a chance to recover the quake are suffering post trauma syndrome.

    Activities
    Global Family Village (GFV), in partnership the Chhatrapati Free Clinic and Hospital supports the communities with food and cooking packets, Health Camps at close-in and the more remote areas, and temporary shelter materials for some of the thousands who lost their homes. Cement partition walls are helping to provide schools with temporary classrooms and can later be incorporated into a permanent structure. The coloring book has been extremely helpful in helping young children and their parents.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    650 families (not being served by government) will have tin roofing for temporary shelter Temporary wall units/tents for schools- 300 children attending school Food/cooking packets 2500 persons 4 Health Camps - approx 1170 people received medications and follow-up 500,000 children's books will help teachers, parents and children understand and better cope with their fears and emotions.

  • Support 38 families with terminally ill children
    project picture
    will buy a holiday gift for a terminally ill child
    can provide 1 medical massage session
    a weeks' supply of diapers and disposable care items

    give now

    Summary
    Because palliative care needs are excluded from state medical or social programs, families where a child is terminally ill are left with no aid. Yet, it requires significant spendings to support a child with genetic or oncological condition. An average Russian family cannot afford to pay even for half of what it takes to provide for the health needs of a child with a terminal condition. Vera Hospice Charity fund implements regular support program for such families in Russia's regions.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    While essential care products, medication and equipment for in-bed patients are mostly imported and therefore highly expensive in Russia, terminally ill patients receive very little or no support within current medical system. The burden of providing for a seriously ill child with no support is even heavier on families living in distant regions of the country. With monthly average income of 512$ per citizen, the wages are significantly lower if we excluded well-paid Moscow from calculation.

    Activities
    Yet, such essentials as consumables for tracheostomy, diapers, medication therapy and massage sessions to keep the muscles from atrophy put together exceed the average income. And there is still rent to pay, food to buy other children to provide for. In most countries, such families receive regular support, which includes all of the above and more, like palliative care nurse assigned to them or even the super expensive personal air-support system. In Russia only you can help these families.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Within Regional Support program, Vera Fund currently cooperates with 38 families in need of finansial aid to provide for the essential items. We support families who: - have a child with documented medical history, incurable and in need of palliative care (some genetic conditions, last stage cancer, etc); - are actively involved into the care process and reasonable in their requests; - do not have an income that allows them to cover the ill child child's needs and everyday living expenses.

  • Healthy Minds, Happy Hearts Kibera

    1 day of counseling for 20 children
    1 week of counseling for 20 children
    0 — 1 month of counseling for 20 children

    give now

    Summary
    Violence against children is a serious problem in Kenya today. Approximately one-third of children have experienced physical or sexual violence by the time they are 18. Despite the great need, due to funding limitations and capacity, counseling and support services are nearly non existent for children. This project will address this gap; providing routine, quality counseling services to 20 orphans and vulnerable children living in our rescue center in Kibera - one of Africa's largest slums

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Rates of violence against children are high in Kenya. Particularly vulnerable are orphaned children. Many of these children have experienced abuse (physical and sexual) or severe neglect in their homes. As a result, they struggle from a profound sense of loss, grief, fear and anxiety. They are more likely to experience higher levels of depression and lower self-esteem, which ultimately impedes their development. Despite these challenges, quality counseling services are virtually non existent.

    Activities
    Healthy Minds, Happy Hearts will introduce counseling services to 20 children from our own rescue center by a trained provider in a safe setting. The counselor will offer two, one-hour sessions per week over the course of one year. Sessions will be tailored to the individual needs of the children and incorporate both group and individual therapy, Counseling will address the children's emotional needs and equip them with skills to manage the trauma and grief they have experienced in their lives.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    This project will enable children who have experienced abuse to properly grieve, build coping mechanisms and discuss behavior problems that result from past abuses (e.g. risky sexual behaviors). So often overshadowed by "basic needs" (e.g.,shelter and food), counseling is essential in promoting children's overall psychological and emotional wellbeing, as well as their physical and mental development. Counseling will help children feel protected, establish trust and build hope for their future.

  • Support Primary Education for Vulnerable Children
    project picture
    will provide a year's supply of scissors
    will provide a year's supply of pencils
    provides construction paper for a year

    give now

    Summary
    The Primary Education Programs at Thanda offer 175 young orphans and vulnerable children a way to overcome the enormous obstacles before them. These programs give children a safe place to go in the afternoon, a nutritious meal, and emotional support. Combining academic learning with life skills development, Thanda's Primary Education Programs enable children to think for themselves, cope with difficulties in their lives, take control of their own futures and find security and success.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Thanda operates in rural KwaZulu-Natal, where 60% of people live in extreme poverty and over 70% are unemployed. The legacies of Apartheid and AIDS have left communities riven with poor infrastructure and little support for its youngest members. Food scarcity is common and schools are falling apart. Children and youth, many of whom have lost parents to AIDS, are the hardest hit. This project will help 175 children from rural KwaZulu-Natal communities break free from the cycle of chronic poverty.

    Activities
    The Primary Education Programs at Thanda offer a dynamic, engaging curriculum of lessons and activities designed to help children develop reading and math skills, creativity, and problem-solving abilities. Moreover, Thanda's after-school programming provide a safe space for these children, and teachers who offer much-needed emotional support. Empowering children with a sense of self-worth, belonging, and love of learning, we are building the necessary foundation for a better life.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    By breaking the cycle of poverty we are raising educated and engaged citizens equipped to find employment and start their own businesses. With Thanda's help, high school graduates will no longer migrate to the cities to find work. Instead, there will be more talented, income-earning young adults emerging as leaders in the local community of Umtwalume, ready to tackle on-going complex issues like chronic food scarcity, lack of opportunity, crime, teen pregnancy and HIV/AIDS.
