    Transport facility for Special Children
    Transport facility for Special Children
    0 — Transport facility for Special Children

    give now

    Summary
    Balajothi's objectives are to meet all the needs of the disabled children including rehabilitation, therapy & training, special education, learning Aids, learning material, nutrition and transportation. The importance of a safe transportation cannot be over-stressed, especially for these special children. We provide transportation from home to school to all children, which not only ensures the safety during the transit but also acts as a reason for parents to send the children to school.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    The transport being used currently is a Maruti OMNI van, which is modified to accommodate 8 children. It is 7 years old and has clocked over a 100,000 kms. It has broken-down couple of times in the last year and is turning out to be unreliable. Also, the modification to accommodate 8 children is not safe for these special children especially as they travel for around 10 kms each day.

    Activities
    This project intends to raise funds for a new vehicle, which would be a safer and a more reliable mode of transportation for the children. We have identified a vehicle that is: - easy to use by disabled children, is less maintenance and has a lesser running cost, easy to handle on narrow roads, has less road tax and insurance and takes less parking space.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    As the transport ensures children's attendance at the school, children are benefited from the learning activities, physiotherapy, food and nutrition thus helping every disabled child to become self reliant.

  • Safe education in Sierra Leone in the Ebola crisis
    project picture
    will pay for one student to attend our lessons for a month
    will equip a new lesson venue with an infrared thermometer and handwashing station
    0 — will pay for a low cost tablet device so students can access educational videos, games and other content

    give now

    Summary
    Schools in Sierra Leone are closed because of the Ebola epidemic. We aim to provide up to 250 children with access to high quality learning in a safe environment through our Ebola Crisis Home Outreach program. Early results show that our students are making discernible gains in reading, writing and math compared to their peers not in the program.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Schools in Sierra Leone are closed because of Ebola. 1.6m children are being deprived of an education. Even before Ebola, the education system was struggling, with progress on getting kids into school offset by poor learning outcomes once they got there, and with the majority completing primary school still unable to read. Now Ebola threatens to undo even that fragile progress. Evidence suggests that children who do not attend school for an extended period are twice as likely never to go back.

    Activities
    We currently provide safe learning spaces for 75 students, and are looking to expand this to 250. For 2-3 hours each day, parents host small groups of students in homes around Regent on the outskirts of Freetown. Our tutors - energetic young people, all of whom go through our demanding pre-service training program - visit these homes to deliver a) Ebola prevention and awareness measures and b) a catch-up curriculum focused on building strong foundations in literacy and numeracy.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    250 students will benefit from enhanced Ebola screening and prevention measures, while at the same time staying tethered to the education system and making accelerated learning gains in reading, writing and maths. Early results show that our students are making discernible gains across all three of these areas compared to their peers not in the program.

    give now

    Summary
    The East Coast of Malaysia encountered the worst flood in over one hundred years. Many low lying areas have seen houses or even entire villages completely being destroyed by flood waters. What is most needed now is temporary shelters, house hold items, construction materials, tools and furnishing for reconstruction of homes, school and health clinics. Town areas will slowly crawl back to life but the Orang Asli will find it very hard to get life back to normal if no help is extended to them

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Over 200,000 people have lost almost everything in the flood. Many low lying areas such as Guchil, Manek Urai and other surrounding villages have seen houses or even entire villages completely being destroyed by the water. Town areas will slowly crawl back to life but the Orang Asli (Malaysian Aborigines) will find it very hard to get life back to normal if no help is extended to them, especially because many of the roads leading to their villages are gone or in a very bad condition.

    Activities
    What is most needed now is temporary shelters, house hold items, construction materials, tools and furnishing for reconstruction of homes, school and health clinics. With your donation we are able to buy the necessary supplies, so that these people can rebuild their lives again.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    When people from the East Coast are able to reclaim their lives again they will have a better future ahead of them with more chances and opportunities.

  • Technology Refresh for Operational/Cost Efficiency
    project picture
    will cover 1 packet of power adapters to ensure the computers at the school can access power points safely
    will cover a desk and chair set for 1 seat at the school
    0 — will buy 1 monitor to give access to a virtual desktop at the Toyota GK Village school

    give now

    Summary
    Ending poverty for 5 million families by 2024 involves people, process and technology to organize volunteers, staff and materials to build communities and support sustainability. The project helps optimize technology so that IT operations behind the scenes of GK can equip staff, volunteers and communities with technology at a lower operational cost. The project will fund 15 desktop computers for students at Toyota GK Village school and 15 for social entrepreneurs at the GK Enchanted Farm.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    GK IT spends a lot of time managing 200 end user devices of volunteers and staff in the Headquarters and around the country. Many users are based in remote locations and travel frequently, so it's quite challenging to keep systems updated and in compliance with GK IT policies. The hardware is also diverse, GK being a nonprofit. If we can reduce time spent on these manual tasks, GK IT will be freed up to spend more time in optimizing delivery of projects which create true value in the community.

    Activities
    This project helps to optimize the delivery of technology so that IT operations behind the scenes of GK will be able to equip staff, volunteers and communities with technology at a lower operational cost on an ongoing basis, meaning more resources go to achieving their mission rather than just 'keeping the lights on'. It will involve a pilot of virtual desktops at the Toyota GK Village school and the GK Enchanted Farm as well as the completion and furnishing of the school site.

    Potential Long Term Impact

    Summary

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Violence against women is globally acknowledged as a basic human rights violation and a fundamental obstacle to the achievement of gender equality. A highly patriarchal society, India is caught up in gender inequalities in both public and private spheres. Intimate partner violence against women is highly prevalent. National Crime Records Bureau showed that the cases of assault on women by her husband or his family members rose from 99,135 in 2011 to 1,06,527 in 2012 to 1,118,866 cases in 2013.

    Activities
    Maitri gives women a safe space within communities where they can understand what constitutes domestic violence and prevent themselves & others from experiencing it. Furthermore, Maitri promote awareness about legal structures and options available to women within the ambit of the service and sensitizes men and boys about gender and masculinity. Lastly, Maitri educates and creates a platform for information and dialogue for uniformed personnel and their families to understand domestic violence.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    We will educate 10000 young girls, women, men and boys to be active partners in bringing about the social change needed to prevent domestic violence in India, giving rise to healthy and happy families. Further more, we hope to play a vital role in prevention and early intervention in cases, helping to identify abuse early, and referring women to appropriate and informed care.

    0 — Will provide a full 10 weeks of group equine assisted life skills development programming for a child at risk.

    give now

    Summary
    Borrowed Freedom provides scholarship based Therapeutic (Adaptive) Riding, Hippotherapy and Equine Experiential Education for more than 45 clients with physical, intellectual, developmental, emotional and socio-economic special needs. All sessions are delivered at no charge for those with demonstrated need through a comprehensive scholarship program. When this project is funded we will be able to help 30 children receive the life changing benefits of equine therapies and activities in 2015.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Our children are struggling, especially youth at risk who are navigating an uncertain world. They have inadequate opportunity to learn the vital life skills that will help them grow into functional, productive adults. This leads to health-risk behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death and disability among youth and adults. Equine therapies are a proven tool to help youth find their inner power and peace, they are however, costly, and it is a financial burden few families can bear.

    Activities
    We aren't offering a free riding program, instead, we use our program as a catalyst for change for youth at risk. By including a volunteer component, we achieve several important levels of success including the financial health and stability of the program, a sense of community pride, parents setting a charitable example for their children, and children learning the joys of volunteerism, and all will learn vital life skills including healthy examples of personal ethics and responsibility.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Through volunteerism, agricultural, environmental and equine activities, children learn to respectfully care for each other, therapy horses, and the rescued horses in rehabilitation at Epona Farm Sanctuary. As they learn to care for each other, these 30 children will also improve their health, wellness, self-esteem, and learn vital life and character skills such as planning, dependability, responsibility and ethics. All qualities needed for a full, productive life in work, family and community.
