    Summary
    Last year we impacted more then 1000 childrens from Rio de Janeiro's most poorer societies. Help us give them one day of joy and fun while using non-formal learning to introduce better core values into their lives.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    In the city of Rio de Janeiro, there are 763 slums housing roughly one fourth of the city's population with several children living below the poverty line. Sonhar Acordado tries to impact 13 of those communities.

    Activities
    With more them 1000 children present in the party, we will train at least another 1000 volunteers that will spend one full day with that children, helping them experience core values through several activities implemented during this party. At the end, each children will leave this party not only with a good experience of a better care through non-formal education, but also with a Christmas present and a small formal education kit to help during their formal learing process in public schools.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Those festivals take place every 6 months and hope to impact at least 1000 kids from the slums of Rio de Janeiro. With non-formal learing actitivities and the partnership of our volunteers, we could help those kids to see a different world than that they are used to live and perhaps give them reason not to go with drug traffic or theft which is very common in their daily lives.

  • Healthy Start-Ensure immunization to 30513 babies
    project picture
    I want to ensure a healthy start for children
    Ensure 4 infants between 7-12 months complete their vaccination cycle
    0 — Ensure 5 babies have access to all lifesaving vaccines

    give now

    Summary
    The first 5 years play a significant role in a child's life. But, for thousands of children, growing up well continues to be a distant dream. Long before they turn 5, their physical, emotional and cognitive growth is irreversibly hampered by lack of adequate nutrition and healthcare. You can make a difference by giving them a 'healthy start'. 'Healthy Start' initiative will ensure 30,513 babies under the age of 1 year across CRY-supported projects receive access to all lifesaving vaccines

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    In India there are 138 million children between 0 to 5 years. For a large number of them, the reality of childhood is very different. Lack of access to healthcare services, inadequate care for pregnant and lactating mothers, malnutrition, little awareness and sensitisation lead to many children missing out on the crucial care and attention needed in this significant phase of life. 0.7million infants die in the first 4 weeks after birth & only 44% of children of 12-23 months are fully immunised

    Activities
    CRY and its grass root partners are working towards the following - Activate defunct or demand new healthcare centres if the village has none. - Support the health workers in providing pre-natal care, adequate food and timely health check ups to pregnant woman so that she stays fit and gives birth to a healthy child. - Make parents and communities aware of the need of immunisation - Demand & ensure adequate infrastructure & health workers at ICDS

    Potential Long Term Impact
    The long term impact of the project is to ensure that local public healthcare and the ICDS centres have the necessary infrastructure and qualified health workers to provide effective delivery of quality maternal and child health care. * ICDS- Integrated Child Development Scheme centres monitor development of children between the age of 0-5 and provides supplementary nutrition and ante-natal care to children and mothers.

  • Educate 60 Girls so they don't become Child Brides
    project picture
    will educate one girl
    0 — will educate two girls
    0 — will educate six girls

    give now

    Summary
    This project will provide scholarships for girls in Bangladesh to attend school. Receiving an education is the best way to prevent young girls from becoming child brides.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Bangladesh has one of the highest rates of child marriage in the world, even though the legal age is set at 18 years-of-age. Girls can be seen as a financial burden so a family living in poverty will often marry off girls (some as young as 10) and push the responsibility onto the new husband, who is often a complete stranger. Girls that marry before they are ready will not only lose their hopes and dreams, but are also at greater risk of abuse, childbirth injuries and even death.

    Activities
    A girl with 10 years of education has a 6 times lower chance of being pushed into marriage before she is 18. This project provides scholarships for girls at risk in Bangladesh, or other countries where World Concern works with a high rate of child marriage, such as Chad and Kenya. By financially supporting a girl to stay in school, it alleviates the financial burden on the family and gives the girl a chance to receive an education and learn their way out of poverty.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Providing 60 scholarships for girls to receive an education, will not only directly transform the life of that girl and save them from becoming a child bride, but also impact a generation by empowering educated, young women to make a difference in their communities.

    Summary
    Nowhere in the world is there more explosive urban growth than in India. The unrelenting vision of Splash is to secure clean water in 2,000 schools (500,000 kids) and 1,000 child-serving institutions- orphanages, hospitals, and shelters (250,000 kids) in Kolkata.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    In Kolkata, water is widely available. However, it is typically contaminated with high levels of E. coli and other disease-causing pathogens. Children are disproportionally affected by water-born illnesses but there is a solution.

    Activities
    Splash believes that all children should have clean water and access to life-changing health and hygiene education. Our goal is to provide quality water filtration for every public school, orphanage, children's hospital and shelter in Kolkata. Essential to Splash's strategic focus in Kolkata is this: It is one of the few, large cities where success can catalyze replication in other large cities country wide. This is why we are centered in Kolkata; intent on proving scale in 3,000 sites.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Your support will: reduce illness and days of school missed; improve health and, thereby, greatly increase each child's chance to fulfill his or her maximum potential; impact the entire community when children take clean water and healthy behaviors home and; in many cases, give the larger community access to our free, clean water.

    Summary
    Splash's goal is for every kindergarten and primary school in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to have clean water. We are not stopping there, though! In order to make real lasting impact, Splash knows that we have to offer kids health and hygiene education that will teach and empower them to live healthier lives. Your generous support helps make an impact now and for years to come.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Addis Ababa is among the fastest growing urban areas in the world. This level of growth is always coupled with challenges, challenges that most directly affect the urban poor. It is estimated that over 80% of Addis' population lives in slum districts with poor infrastructure and very limited access to adequate water and sanitation. Poor water access, plus infectious diseases, are leading factors contributing to high probability of infant and childhood mortality.

    Activities
    Children are disproportionately affected by the sicknesses and illnesses caused by dirty water. To have the greatest impact, Splash is going where the kids are: schools. Focusing on kindergarten and primary schools helps us get clean water to the most kids while teaching them healthy practices at a young age that will last a lifetime.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    We will clean water and provide health and hygiene education for 300,000 kids in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. That's 300,000 kids who will not miss school days, play days, or any other days because of water-born illnesses!

  • Educate 20 Dalit girls

    Will sponsor a child for one month
    Will sponsor a child for three months
    0 — Will sponsor a child for one year

    give now

    Summary
    For 00 we can add 20 girls to our child sponsorship programme immediately. Our sponsorship programme is quite unique as we open a bank account for every child and this account is managed by the child's mother. This teaches the mother how to manage money. When we add a child to the programme, the mother also joins our self-help group programme. She will benefit from our micro finance programme so she can purchase a cow or a sewing machine to generate much-needed income for the family

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Children are taken out of school at an early age as the family may need to move to a city for work. They will sleep rough on the streets and bring the children to a building site to hang around all day while the mother and father work. By providing them with regular income through our sponsorship programme this will generally discourage the family from doing this. The money which is transferred every month into the account is equivalent to 4 days work by the mother in the fields.

    Activities
    Family will receive regular income for the child's education. The mother will join our mothers self-help group. Eventually she will receive a loan to buy a cow and this will significantly raise the family's income for many years.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Education is the key to rising above the poverty line.

    will support 1 OV Center for 10 days

    give now

    Summary
    To address the problem of school dropouts and children related to their studies, Agastya Volunteers visit Community Centres in the evenings and provide remedial lessons. The children are also provided with interactive learning sessions through, singing, dancing, hands on experience on Science, Maths and Digital literacy which makes learning a great fun for them.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    The issue of dropouts is increasing in India, especially, in rural locations. The primary reason for this is chronic absenteeism, need to supplement family income through household chores or domestic work, school-related expenses are high, learning challenges of students, lack of individual teacher attention, all leading to poor learning levels in rural schools and eventually drop out from school.

    Activities
    The project "Operation Vasantha" is highly interactive and empowering initiative of Agastya, addressing the problem of school dropouts and children since 2009. The Agastya identified Volunteers (local college trained students) educate and inspire weaker students and school dropouts from their villages by providing remedial lessons after they complete their school and day's work. The project helps students and school dropouts to continue learning and join back to regular classes in school.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    The project will lead to trigger positive behavioral shifts that lead to curious, confident and humane individuals engaging creatively in their communities and eventually mainstreaming school drop outs. It will also elevate the educational status of children in every village and transform the level of empowerment in communities in future. Children will be able to tackle local societal problems and come up with solutions to these issues by using four simple steps- "Feel, Imagine, Do & Share."

    8 — Will give one child excellent education for an entire year

    Summary
    Teach For India - Hyderabad is helping to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting our nation's most promising leaders in this effort. We believe that, through targeted educational improvements led by transformational leaders,we can close the achievement gap between low-income students and their wealthier counterparts.The core belief at Teach For India is that the root of systemic change is leadership - leadership that understands the problem and knows how to address it.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    India is facing crisis in its educational sector. Inequity in education is a huge concern - while wealthy Indian children have access to excellent education, their low-income peers continue to lag far behind. Of the 320 million children in India, 4% never go to school, 42% drop out of school before 5th grade and 90% do not get an opportunity to go to college. Because of the size and complexity of the Indian education system, grassroots interventions alone are insufficient to address the problem.

    Activities
    Teach For India's mission is to build a movement of leaders who will end educational inequity. Teach For India recruits India's most outstanding college graduates and young professionals and places them as full time teachers in under-resourced schools for two years. In the short run, Teach For India will provide a source of dedicated teachers working tirelessly to expand the educational opportunities available to India's least privileged children.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    In the long run, the program aims to create a powerful network of alumni who, influenced by their experiences in the classroom, will work towards effecting multi-sector solutions to India's educational problems. The experience gained as a Fellow in a low incomes school, or as staff supporting the Fellowship, forms the bedrock of Alumni action. Currently, Teach For India Alumni are working in a variety of for and not-for-profit sectors.

  • HELP WOMEN START UP FAMILY P0ULTRY FARMS
    project picture
    Buy 2 old weeks chicken
    will buy 5 weeks old chicken or buy one bag feed
    will supply 10 chickens to a family as a recurring project

    give now

    Summary
    This is a micro project to support the women Palm Oil project. We want to acquire one week old chickens and give at least 10 to about 30 women who have been very active in the palm oil project. Each family will be given training on how to keep and fatten Agric fowls for marketing so as to generate recurring income for their families. Children will be trained to help their parents in this project whereby everyone in the family will be involved as the fowls will be sold to help the entire family.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    We have been working with women groups and carrying out a women palm oil project.They are now very organized. These women are very poor and family members do not have common activity to jointly fight against poverty at the level families. As such they only depend on peasant farming while children remain at home because of lack of school needs, and other basic needs that cannot be acquired from the farms. The families really lack the capacity to fight against poverty through such activities.

    Activities
    If this project has funding, it will empower families who can keep grow fowls and sell them as income generating activities and then buy new ones and continue keeping them under our supervision. Families will generate steady income after every three months because we are going to look for a common market where they will sell and then replenish their stock with new chicks. The project will also involve training by our lives stock experts and all the families involved will be enriched.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    This project will be a recycling type of project because we will ensure that when the chicks and grown to mature, the fowls will be sold and new ones supplied after they must made a reasonable income.
