    project picture
    0 — Conduct a monthly Psycho Social training for relief workers
    00 — Conduct an intensive training for local health workers
    00 — Flight ticket to Sierra Leone for IsraAID specialist

    give now

    Summary
    IsraAID in partnership with the first lady in Sierra Leone will conduct a 2 year training program that will focus on MHPSS- (Mental Health Psycho-Social Support) with the aim of building a national network of service providers.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    The Ebola crisis in West Africa has had massive and devastating effects on the entire region. As of today there are approximately 7,000 Ebola reported cases in the region. The Ebola virus outbreak caused widespread stress and trauma in both countries, where families of infected patients have been completely isolated by their communities, with some areas even resorting to violence.

    Activities
    IsraAID will provide tools and techniques to deal with the trauma caused by the Ebola crisis. Target participants will include social workers, counselors, religious leaders and local NGO staff, effectively equipping them with a basic set of skills in the fields of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) prevention and treatment using methods such as Peer counseling and group therapy

    Potential Long Term Impact
    The participants will learn practical and theoretical tools related to health education and MHPSS, and will apply them in their work to support communities affected by the Ebola crisis. Participants will be given the opportunity to manage their stress and ventilate their emotions. The participants will be able to present case studies and receive supervision, mentoring and professional guidance from the Israeli therapists.

  • Help sponsor a foster family in China
    project picture
    Help a foster family plan a special meal for their children
    Help a foster family with their general daily expenses
    Help a foster family afford a special outing with their children

    give now

    Summary
    This project will sponsor four loving foster families in China for one year. Each family is composed of a foster father, a foster mother, and up to four children whose special needs are likely to preclude adoption.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Children with more severe special needs are often at higher risk of spending their entire childhood and teenage years in orphanages. Half the Sky's Family Village program provides permanent foster care to these children who otherwise, would never know the love of family. Each couple commits to raising up to 4 children with special needs to adulthood. They receive help from Half the Sky's trainers and program directors to learn how to best address the unique needs of their children.

    Activities
    Half the Sky hires experienced parents who commit to raising orphaned children with special needs to adulthood. Families live in housing provided by Half the Sky in close proximity to social welfare institutions, so that children can attend Half the Sky programs including the Infant Nurture (0-3 years of age), Little Sisters Preschool Program (4-7 year of age) and Youth Services program (8-21 years of age).

    Potential Long Term Impact
    This project enables orphaned children with special needs to grow up in loving families instead of spending their lives in institutions.

  • Village Soccer Dream Teams
    project picture
    Uniforms for one player
    Bottled water and lunch for the team per week
    Weekly transportation for the team

    give now

    Summary
    Our soccer program is complementary to our school English & Nutritional program. A sound mind and healthy body go hand in hand to develop full potential and confidence for young students. We have three teams entered into a weekend Soccer League with our two Khmer coaches. This gives them the opportunity to develop skills and takes them out of their rural environment. Confidence building and sportmanship are a great tool for success and encouragement to dream big.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Children from Rural Cambodian Villages do not have the possibility of being part of organized sports. Their exercise consists of toiling in the rice fields to earn extra income for the family. Their school day is spent in cramped and badly ventilated and lit classrooms. The lack of sports facilities and programing prevents them from developing phyiscal strength and coordination, leadership as well as team work and gender collaboration.

    Activities
    Coaching and entering in the Soccer League with teams of different ages and genders,( including a mixed team of boys and girls), will enable students to improve their sports skills and confidence. There are 36 students per week for 16 weeks entered into the league. They practise twice a week for 2 hours. We are especially proud of having a girls participating.It is also an outing once a week away from the rural village to show them the bigger world of opportunities.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    By introducing the idea of competitve sports in the rural community, we are able to build confidence and leadership abilities. The team players are role models and inspire their classmates, the 750 students in TaPang primary and secondary school. It is the beginning of a pyramid that inspires wellbeing and participation in sports acitivites in the larger community.

  • Help Rahim go to University
    project picture
    will pay for orientation and check up visits for the year
    Are 20 daily meals for Rahim
    Additional costs of registration for University of Buea

    give now

    Summary
    Rahim is a very special young man, an example to all children living without parents. He is the first orphan from Father's House Orphanage, in Muyuka, to fulfill all requeriments to enter University. He is now admitted to study Geography at University of Buea, but neither him nor the orphanage can afford to pay for school fees and a whole year of housing.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Rahim grew up in Father's House Orphanage on very harsh conditions that the orphanage and its partners (Reach Out among them) have been fighting to improve. They have done a great job, Rahim is living proof of it. But the orphanage cannot pay the kind of money required for Rahim to go to University during one full year, and now everything he has been working so hard for might be in danger.

    Activities
    This project is expected to fund his registration, housing and feeding expenses for a year. It will also include the small costs of starting him up in a micro business that is expected to cover for the rest of his expenses and save for next year expenses. We will be there for him during the whole year, but we are cutting down expenses to the minimum, for example there is no money allocated for new books, he will have to borrow them in the library.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    A young boy without family will start his studies on Geography. The project will also allow him to start a small business activity that he can do at the same time he goes further in his studies, since that is the only realistic way for him to complete his studies. If the funding comes on time the project will literally change the life of Rahim and his possibilities.

  • Hospital Classroom for 5,000 Children Illnesses
    project picture
    For a TEACHER who directs artistic activities for 5,000 children with critical illnesses
    For a TEACHER who directs games and reading activities for children
    0 — For a TEACHER who helps children with school homework to avoid any setbacks at school

    give now

    Summary
    The San Vicente Foundation Children's Hospital was the first to offer this service in Colombia in the year 2000. This service was created in order to reduce the negative emotional impact illnesses had on children who had to remain in the Hospital for extended periods. Each year 5,000 hospitalized children benefit from the Hospital Classroom, which they have affectionately called "Escuelita" (Little School).

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Children with critical illnesses such as cancer, kidney failure, cystic fibrosis, etc. must remain in the Hospital and away from their family and friends for extended periods. This creates a negative emotional impact on them, which leads to anxiety, fears, stress and depression. Furthermore, interrupting their academic process causes demotivation when acquiring learning skills.

    Activities
    Carrying out playful, recreational and artistic activities guided by a TEACHER encourages children and their families to be happy, creative, joyful, upbeat, relaxed and to have fun during the hospitalization period. Also, the teacher's support in a formal curriculum plan enables children to keep up with their school learning process. Main Activities: Music therapy, Laughter therapy, Reading and Games

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Each year 5,000 hospitalized children are less afraid, anxious, depressed and stressed when it comes to their illness and hospitalization, thanks to Hospital Classroom. They also return to their school avoiding setbacks in their learning process.

  • Support Shark Conservation in Thailand
    project picture
    Will buy educational materials for marine conservation classes for local kids
    Will buy 5 information packs for a local shark awareness campaign
    0 — Will allow for a marine ecology workshop for local fishermen/tour operators

    give now

    Summary
    Sharks are disappearing from our oceans at an alarming rate, with some records indicating that 90% of some of the larger species are already gone. The people of Khao Lak and surrounds are heavily dependent on dive-based tourism and fishing. The rapid decline in coral reef health is threatening their way of life. Marine-based research and education are essential for the future of this area, to ensure that the spectacular coral reefs of Thailand stay healthy.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Recent estimates show as many as 100 million sharks are killed every year. Shark products such as shark fin soup, teeth and shark oil are popular in much of Asia. With Shark fishing and finning largely unregulated, there's been a sharp decline in shark species globally. As apex predators, sharks are integral to a healthy marine ecosystem. Coastal Thailand relies heavily on wildlife-based tourism and fishing and the current decline in reef health threatens the way of life for thousands of people.

    Activities
    Educational programs and presentations will educate the public, students, fishermen and divers about shark conservation. Research projects, such as citizen science initiatives and identification courses will increase scientific understanding of shark populations.Collaboration with other marine conservation organisations will increase our scope and efficacy. Finally, designing and implementing guidelines/codes of conduct will reduce damaging tourist operations and the demand for shark products.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    By educating the local community, we are motivating and inspiring others to get more involved with shark and marine conservation activities. Educating the community on sustainable alternatives in eco-tourism is the long-term goal in protecting sharks and other marine life. By educating people and overcoming previous misconceptions related to these animals, we would hopefully reduce the demand of shark products. By promoting promoting eco-tourism we can offer alternative ways of earning money.

  • Clothe Gaza's Children
    project picture
    Pays for 50 new boxes with a nonprofit discount
    Buys a backpack filled with school supplies
    Pays for an extra hour to 'Live Load' the shipping container

    give now

    Summary
    When we asked for Clothes for Gaza, thousands responded generously. With aid of the United Nations, our first container will reach Gaza in November, helping Palestinian families who lost everything. Now we ask your help to send 6 more containers with clothing and backpacks for 60% of Gaza's population: the children. They have lost so much in their young lives: family and friends, homes, school closures, lack of food & clean water. Your donation means warmth and hope for these children.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Consider the challenges the people of Gaza now face. Operation Protective Edge caused the most serious humanitarian crisis in Gaza since the beginning of the Israeli occupation in 1967. Nearly half a million Palestinians were displaced at the height of the conflict and more than 11,200 were injured. The number of poor, homeless & disabled persons, as well as orphans and single-parent households has increased dramatically. 373,000 children are now in need of psychosocial support - start here.

    Activities
    Our project provides a tangible way to show that Americans care. We invite six youth groups on college campuses and places of worship to organize 'Clothe Gaza's Children' campaigns. American students will reach out to one another & to neighbors from all walks of life, asking for new or gently-used children's clothing and backpacks. With volunteer nights to pack 600 boxes, they'll each 'live-load' 40ft shipping containers, creating YouTube messages to connect with children in need.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Let's open the blockade of Gaza through compassion. Let's give the children of Palestine, and children throughout the world, hope and a better future. Each shipping container will provide much needed clothing and backpacks to 4800 children in Gaza, inspiring youth both here and there to make a difference. As we've seen in the San Francisco Bay Area, each container brings together people of all faiths, increasing awareness and reminding us all of our common humanity.

  • Test all babies' hearing for a year in Ficksburg!
    project picture
    will provide stationary and cleaning supplies for probe tips to conduct hearing screening for one month
    will provide mobile costs to follow-up non-attendance of re-screens for two months
    will provide hearing tests at four clinics for a week

    give now

    Summary
    Hearing loss in children often goes undetected until 3 years of age, when caregivers become concerned about a child's lack of speech. Language development is then severely compromised. Infant hearing screening programs which offer free hearing tests to all babies receiving their immunizations at primary healthcare clinics in the Ficksburg/Meqheleng area in South Africa are the only way of diagnosing children with hearing loss before they are 4 months old, thus ensuring a much brighter future!

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    At the moment there are about an estimated 432 children with hearing loss between 0 - 14 years of age living in the Setsoto Municipality in the Eastern Free State in South Africa. Of these children, only 10 have been diagnosed with hearing loss so far. The rest are probably undiagnosed and suffering to deal with communication, education and socio-emotional issues. The only way of diagnosing children early enough for optimal intervention is by means of universal infant hearing screening programs.

    Activities
    By identifying children with hearing loss before 4 months of age, we can enroll them in age- and culture-appropriate intervention so that they can develop language (either spoken or signed) optimally. By doing this we can ensure that they can be educated locally, and that they will be afforded the same opportunities for optimal development like their normal-hearing peers.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Late-identified deaf children cost the society about million across lifespan to support them. An early-identified deaf child will need less specialized education, and will be competitive in the job market as an adult, thus reducing the financial burden on society as a whole.

  • Transfroming The Achievment Gap Better Baby Course
    project picture
    Provides transportation to the course for one day
    Provides one packet of Bits of Information to an individual
    0 — Provides 1/10th of what we need to send one person that will help transform early childhood education in our region

    give now

    Summary
    TeamChildren is dedicated to ending the digital divide and transforming the achievement gap. In order to further empower parents to help them teach their children we are committed to give 10 select individuals a scholarship to attend the "Better Baby Course" presented by the Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential. The week long course's objective is to teach about brain growth, development from birth to six years of age, and how to teach children anything and everything.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Education in this country still believes that cognitive learning starts when kids go to school and that their kids will be taught in those schools. The learning disparity between low income children and more privileged children has remained staggeringly stagnant. Recent brain research is pointing to the critical importance of early brain development. However this research is not making practical applications for the children most in need.

    Activities
    We will be empowering more and more low income parents, early childhood advocates, teachers and administrators in the importance of how poverty impacts he brain and our simple low cost practical applications. We will document this through anecdotal video tape documentation and research through surveys. This will enable us to distinguish importance, value, and credibility of our approach. We will do longitudinal studies on its long term benefits to children we serve which will help us expand.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    The impact this will have immediately is that we will be able to create an incredible video on the value and importance of the course from the people we send. We will then begin to work with them on implementing the knowledge gained with their children and organizations.. The next step will be to raise the funding to have 100 preschool directors and teachers take the course receive computers from TeamChildren loaded with early learning software, take a workshop on how to use the software.
