  • Fund clown performance in children hospital rooms
    project picture
    will offer 1 clown duo visit to 1 child
    will offer 1 clown duo visit to 2 children
    0 — will offer 1 clown duo visit to 5 children

    give now

    Summary
    This is to fund a weekly performance of a CLOWN duo during 1 year: 1-on-1 bedside visits to 1500 children in 2 pediatric services of Grenoble Hospital: Emergency & Oncologic care. A stay at the hospital can be frightening for children as well as for parents. Soleil Rouge offers personal, friendly and magic moments to children and adolescents through clown shows directly in the children rooms. Clowns are specifically trained to work in the sensitive hospital environment.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Children hospitalization is a huge stress factor affecting both sick child and parents particularly in the "heavy" medical services as Emergency & Oncologic care. Furthermore, due to the intensive care the sick child is no more a child but a sick person. Clown performance is adapted to the children's age and pathology and aligned with medical constraints: hygiene, safety, confidentiality and much more

    Activities
    The offered visits are a way to ease the medical care that children have to go through and help them and their families to fight their disease. At the end of the clowns visit the sick child returns to being a child again. Clowns visits help to establish a climate of confidence between the child, the family and their health-care team who support the clowns'interventions.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Professional clowns entertainments of sick children is an important contribution to the prevention of psychological complications in the short or long terms. Laughter allows the children and their parents to forget their medical concerns for a moment. It also allows a better collaboration with the medical staff and reduce the side effects of intensive treatments that are required when the diagnosis of a serious illness falls.The number of clowns visits in the concerned services is 1500/year

    Summary
    In 2014, DreamPower Horsemanship provided equine-assisted activities and therapies to more than 450 children, teens and adults with special needs. Sixteen kind and patient equine partners work in the DreamPower program. This project will support our horses, making it possible for them to keep up their good work.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    As of May 12, 2014, 1,086 children ages 0 to 17 were living in out-of-home placement, according the Santa Clara County Social Service Agency. There are approximately 85,000 veterans living in Santa Clara County, according to the county's Office of Public Affairs. In 2014, DreamPower Horsemanship provided equine-assisted activities and therapies to more than 450 children, teens and adults with special needs. The youngest client served was 3 years old and the oldest was 83 years young.

    Activities
    DreamPower helps children and adults--including veterans and active-duty military personnel--with physical, cognitive and emotional challenges find strength and independence through the power of the horse each year. Working with horses provides a wonderful opportunity to engage in therapeutic activities outside of a traditional therapeutic environment.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    This project keeps our horses healthy to continue to provide therapy assistance. Our clients form lasting bonds with their equine partners. Reaching for a ball while seated on a calm horse can help make physical activity fun for a disabled child. Learning to halter a horse in an open pasture can make an urban teen who has issues listening to authority figures pay attention. Sometimes experiencing just a piece of a dream is enough to make a difference in a person's life

  • Chagam Nunnery & Bagam Village Relief Fund, Nepal
    project picture
    Bag of rice to last 1 month for 4 people
    Metal poles for securing temporary structures

    give now

    Summary
    The 250+ nuns of Chagam and the Sherpa people in the adjacent village have lived a symbiotic life for many years. Nestled in the mountains in Sindhupalchuk, Nepal, they are accustomed to rough terrain, rocky farming, sparse access to healthcare, clean water, and education. The April 25th earthquake changed their already precarious living situation to one of total destruction. Our current plan is to provide food, medication, construction materials for reconstruction and temporary shelter.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Landslides prematurely made roads impassible, almost all homes, the nunnery, schools, and crop storage facilities were entirely demolished or rendered unusable due to extensive damage. The nuns and most of the Sherpa families were without any emergency aid until early May when RMF in collaboration with a local Nepali NGO, organized a helicopter relief mission bringing tarps, food, water filtration systems, medication, and basic supplies. Much more help is needed.

    Activities
    RMF will bring in more food and medical supplies and construction materials to build a temporary communal shelter for the nuns before monsoon starts (as soon as possible). The Sherpa community has offered to supply the labor to do this in exchange for also receiving some building supplies, whereby they will complete the repairs to their own homes or build temporary shelters for themselves. Materials were selected in collaboration with local architect/engineer.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    RMF will also spend the 4-month monsoon period meeting with architects, suppliers, village representatives, and nunnery representative to come up with long-term rebuild plan, and begin once the rain has stopped. The idea is to rebuild efficiently, effectively, culturally appropriately, equitably for the entire community, leveraging local resources and work force, and to create a much greater community resilience than existed before the earthquake.

    Summary
    Generations For Peace trains local volunteers who work in their own communities to empower women with skills to escape from and transform the ongoing cycles of violence they face. These women want to be change-makers, creating a better world for themselves and future generations. What do you want to be? #IWantToBe

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    In Nigeria, a lack of opportunities severely limits women's abilities to demonstrate the roles they can play in national development and peace building, both at the community and national levels. Ongoing political, religious, and ethnic violence continues to affect many people in Kaduna, Northern Nigeria, especially women and girls.

    Activities
    Since 2009, Generations For Peace activities in Kaduna have engaged more than 5,000 people, advocating to various stakeholders including government institutions and media, providing sport for peace activities for 350 school girls, and training 180 volunteers in peacebuilding and conflict transformation. Building on this work, we plan to conduct an Empowerment for Peace Program, which focuses on critical skills for women; empowering them to be change-makers for peace in their communities.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    10 of our certified, dedicated volunteers will facilitate ongoing sessions over 6 months for at least 30 women, who will benefit by gaining skills empowering them to take on the important role they can play as women in the prevention and transformation of conflicts; peace negotiations; peace building and reconstruction. Women in Kaduna will be empowered to feel they can confidently achieve their dreams when they answer: #IWantToBe______.

    give now

    Summary
    This project aims to anticipate and respond to the many food security, health, shelter, education, and trauma/protection-related challenges that will affect earthquake affected communities in Nepal in the coming months, focusing on the impending arrival of the monsoon.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    On 25/04/2015 a 7.8 magnitude earthquake devastated Nepal. 2 weeks later, another large 7.3 magnitude earthquake hit the country, causing further damage and adding considerable mental anguish as well as fears of further instability. Over 8,200 died, more than 15,000 were injured, 600,000 houses were destroyed or damaged, and over 8.1 million in need of life-saving assistance. With the impending arrival of the monsoon, Nepal is on the verge of a massive humanitarian crisis that must be averted.

    Activities
    In addition to our immediate short-term response, IsraAID aims to tackle the mid-term challenges posed by the arrival of the monsoon focusing primarily on 1) Food security (seed packs for farmers), 2) Education (kits for affected school children and resilience training for teachers), 3) Health (hygiene kits and community medical services), 4) Mid-term shelter kits to replace tarpaulin tents that will not survive the monsoon, 5) Trauma prevention training for government and NGO professionals.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    The primary goal is to prevent dependency on aid for affected communities: 1) Seeds will ensure food security in the winter, 2) Education kits and resilience teacher training will ensure that children can regain some measure of normalcy at school, 3) Hygiene kits and medical services will support vulnerable and displaced communities, and avoid mass outbreaks of disease, 4) Shelter kits will ensure basic access to safety during the monsoon, 5) Psychosocial training will prevent long-term trauma.

    Summary
    The project trains and prepares survivors of human trafficking to execute proactive, on-the-ground interventions initiating the rescue and recovery of individuals in situations of exploitation and human trafficking.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Spain is one of the main transit and destination countries in the world for human trafficking. Most victims are young girls and women (14 to 30 years of age) from Romania, Paraguay, Brazil, Nigeria, and the Dominican Republic. Each year, APRAMP serves more than 1,400 trafficking victims and survivors through collaborating with authorities and designing individualized, holistic treatment plans that offer victims real alternatives.

    Activities
    The project provides comprehensive training to survivors on the detection and care of victims, including information on the legal framework and available resources as well as on necessary social skills like communication, empathy and active listening. Upon completion, they work to identify zones of vulnerability through mapping -constantly assessing areas of exploitation-, reach out to victims to generate trust, identify trafficking indicators and, inform, offer and deliver services to victims.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    The project will help 20 survivors retake control over their lives and become independent. They will learn various skills that will better their relations with friends and family, help them become more self-confident, and teach them how to manage professional environments. All of the social and professional skills learned will allow them to help other women and girls in similar situations, providing the victims with hope that they, like the women in the project, can escape their exploitation.

The women in the program range between 10-30 years old, with various females emerging from conditions of high risk and vulnerability.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    In Colombia women and girls have been individually and collectively subject to physical, sexual, and emotional violence; displacement; discrimination; unequal opportunities; among other impediments to success and holistic well-being. Over a 50 year long armed conflict, sexual assault against women has been used as an ongoing tactic within the war. Men and women throughout Colombia continue to declare that they live in a "machismo" society, and that this can provide extremely burdensome for women

    Activities

    Summary
    This project will fund the education of 29 girls in the village of Kalebuka, in Southeastern DRC. They will be the new Kindergarten class at the Malaika School, which provides a quality education completely free of charge to 202 girls.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    7 million children are not attending school in the DRC. It has been torn apart by decades of civil conflict and extreme poverty, leading families to unequally prioritize the education of their children. If they can afford it, they send the boys to school while the girls stay home to help with domestic tasks. There is a 51% literacy rate for young women, which leaves many of them disenfranchised, disempowered and susceptible to abuse. The village of Kalebuka in particular has no school nearby.

    Activities
    The Malaika School opened in Kalebuka in 2011 to an inaugural class of 104 students. The school is being built in phases, with more classrooms and students being added as funding is secured. Enrolment currently stands at 201 girls and will increase to 230 in the fall. Malaika provides a comprehensive program completely free to the girls which includes all school supplies, uniforms, two healthy meals per day, art, theatre and English classes, and sports activities twice a week.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Providing girls with an education helps break the cycle of poverty. Educated women are less likely to marry early or to die in childbirth and they are less vulnerable to diseases like HIV. They also increase their income by 25% and reinvest 90% of it into their families and communities. Our goal is to build the leadership capacity of each student so that she gives back to her community and has a positive, long-term impact on the future of the DRC. We are creating a generation of change-agents.

  • Earthquake relief for remote villages of Nepal
    project picture
    mattress
    66 pound bags of rice
    10 blankets delivered to villages

    give now

    Summary
    The staff of the DCWC were the first on the ground in our remote district to distribute tents, blankets, food and medicine to villagers traumatized by the 7.8M earthquake and its aftershocks. While tending to the many victims, our small Rajbash hospital also became the command center from which our staff and many volunteers hiked into other isolated villages to assess extent of devastation, and needs of survivors. We are serving a population of 125000 in three remote districts, and we need help.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    On April 25th 2015 a 7.8M earthquake and many aftershocks shook and devastated vast areas of Nepal. More than 7000 people are dead and many buried under rubble. Many remote villages are yet to be reached, people accounted for and survivors to be helped. Getting supplies, Medicines, and medical help to these villages is vital. We have medical staff and volunteers in place, however our financial resources are stretched to their limit and we need help urgently.

    Activities
    Earthquake damage and landslides have cut off access to many villages. The DCWC staff, nurses and many volunteers are hiking into these remote areas, taking stock of damage and needs of survivors. As first responders they bring basic medicines, food, and what else they can carry on their backs. Until the government is ready to bring aid to these remote populations, their survival is dependent on grassroot efforts like the DCWC's.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    This is a disaster recovery project. The long term is unknown at this point. The areas we serve are remote. Government assistance is unlikely to come any time soon. Our immediate intervention is essential in preventing further deaths and in helping survivors regain a minimum of security while more permanent solutions can be worked out.
