    Summary
    Donate to WildAid and help former NBA star Yao Ming save Africa's elephants. WildAid has teamed up with Yao Ming, one of Asia's biggest celebrities, for an ad blitz to raise awareness in the country with the largest market for legal and illegal ivory, China. Every dollar that you donate helps amplify our message and reduce consumer demand for elephant ivory, and "when the buying stops, the killing can too."

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    An estimated 33,000 elephants are killed each year for their tusks, and growing demand in China is driving sharp increases in poaching. In China, ivory is prized as a status symbol by growing affluent and middle classes and many Chinese people don't understand where ivory comes from or how it is obtained. A 2012, survey showed that only 33% of respondents believe that elephants are poached for their tusks.

    Activities
    Yao Ming and WildAid are raising awareness through PSAs on TV, radio, print, online and billboards. When the Chinese public understand the nature of the ivory trade, they will stop buying it. We've already proven the effectiveness of demand reduction with our campaign against shark fin soup. 85% of Chinese consumers surveyed said they have given up shark fin soup and sales in China's main market for fin have declined by 82%. If Yao can do it for sharks, he can do it for Africa's elephants.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    WildAid's mission is to end the illegal wildlife trade in our lifetimes by reducing demand through public awareness campaigns. The illegal wildlife trade is estimated to be worth over billion per year and has drastically reduced many wildlife populations around the world. By focusing on reducing the human threat to endangered species, we can secure their long-term survival. People are the problem - but people are also the solution.

    Summary
    Towards our vision, goals and objectives the Education Program is tasked to source donations to cater for child recreation. Activities in this area includes: games and sports (physical, mental and spiritual exercise), scout/guided camping, and skills/talent development. Presently 30 children (abandoned and orphaned) benefit under the program. We offer computer games, football practice, arts and crafts workshops, hiking and camping.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Our vision is a model of excellence in poverty alleviation for the destitute. Our primary goal is to enhance social welfare and security for the destitute. Among our objectives is to provide food security, healthcare, shelter and education for orphans, abandoned children, and impoverished households. While we manage to provide these activities, we reckon we need help to do better and more. This event is a specific effort to raise funds for recreating a destitute child which they lack to grow.

    Activities
    Your donation goes beyond recreation; it will mould the life of a future teacher, prophet, lawyer, engineer, and leader of many who will benefit exponentially! On behalf of the child who benefits from your generous contribution, and the relieved management and staff of BRC, I thank you.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    The children will feel a sense of belonging. They will be more confident in themselves and therefore even the schools in which they go to they will feel as normal children. In so doing we shall have a better society and even the surrounding will appreciate.

  • EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN THROUGH MICRO CREDITS
    project picture
    sensitisation of women on the project.This would include lodging and transportation of resource persons who would organise workshops for the identified target group.
    Agents would be trained on loan granting process and recovery through Dialy collection Agents. Loans would be given for micro activities and recovery monitored
    This would be used as revolving fund for loan granting. As repayment is done it is recycled to other women to meet a target of 1,000 women. It remain the fund of globalgiving.

    give now

    Summary
    The project is on empowering women through micro credits. Women in our targeted area, do not have access to credit because they cannot provide the collateral security demanded by most financial houses. Our project solicit for a revolving fund to enable us grant loans to targeted women who are our members. This would enable them generate income and thus be able to solve their social needs rather than depend on the man or sell sex for money. This would also fight against HIV/AIDS.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    The project is dealing with rural women who have little access to credit. All formal institutions demands collateral securities to back credit given to borrowers. This project involve women who only do not have access to collateral security but are bared from acquiring one following the traditional believe. The target group are women doing small businesses\agriculture and finding it difficult to expand because of no or little access to formal credit.

    Activities
    The project is soliciting for a revolving fund to be deposited in the credit union owned and managed by women. It would be used in granting loans to this targeted group to help expand on their business/agricultural activities. Repayment would be closely monitored and credit recycled to target about 1,020 of the women who fall within this social group.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    The long term effect would be the emancipation of the women economically. Here the women depends solely on the men for their livelihood thus subjecting them to all form of social degradations. With economic empowerment, the women would be able to provide some of their needs thus making them not to be too dependent to the man who subject them to all sort of social ridicule. This project targets 1,020 rural women.

    Issues influencing the well-being of children, including hunger, orphanage, etc.

    give now

    Summary
    The Project will help build a library in the Kibera Slum in Nairobi, Kenya, that will provide a rich source of critical thinking and education and assist the poverty stricken community. We seek donor's support to help provide education to children through the setting up and establishing of this library. We know that through library resources we will empower the lives of these young people and the future of the community.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Kibera Slum has experienced poverty, illiteracy and sexual coercion as a result of unwanted commercial sex workers. This has resulted in a deprived community whose only hope is continuing an existence in poor living arrangements. Each household is vulnerable and much of this vulnerability is due to a lack of knowledge.

    Activities
    The transformation of thinking is the key to empowering a community to change. Through the establishment of this library, we not only offer resources and a place for study, but also a place to meet, discuss, and support the members of the community as they work to break the bonds of poverty, immorality and illiteracy.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Education is the key to building a thriving, independent community of people who are empowered to make positive choices and changes. The impact of this library as a resource of education will lead this community in to the future for generations to come.

  • Feed 250 African families: sow, grow, eat, repeat
    project picture
    will buy one hand hoe to increase the productivity of the garden and future farming activity
    will provide enough locally produced organic pesticide made from chilis, garlic or ash to protect one garden for one month
    will buy 50 pounds of organic fertilizer

    give now

    Summary
    Our demonstration gardens reduce reliance on pesticides and GMO seeds while increasing agricultural productivity and providing better nutrition. This project will help children in six Cameroon schools design, plant and maintain a demonstration garden. Their new knowledge, tools and skills will help the whole community eat more nutritiously with less work for years to come. Surplus produce can be sold to generate extra income.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    More than half of Cameroon school children are deficient in multiple nutrients, including those necessary for effective learning. Most help on the family farm, where the long hours and hard work diminish the quality of life for parents and children alike and keep some of the children from receiving a full education. Overuse or misuse of pesticides degrades both human health and the environment. Many youth abandon agriculture for a life of unemployment in crime-ridden city slums.

    Activities
    Indigenous crops with high nutritional value will be selected and modern, organic farming techniques taught. The children will be able to harvest and eat the vegetables at school, and take some home to their families. Surplus will be sold to help support the school. Because the garden project will be integrated with the school curriculum, it also provide skills such as accounting that will help in future enterprises.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Because the children, working in cooperation with the community, will learn how to bank seeds, and maintain the gardens, this project will provide more nutritious, environmentally friendly crops for each of the six communities for years to come. Because the crops will be less labor-intensive, and more productive, the children will be less likely to be required to work on the family farm instead of going to school, and more likely to choose to stay and farm after graduation.

    give now

    Summary
    The project is geared to address environmental degradation through planting of grass seed, construction of a pan dam and introduction of improved stock. The project targets farmers in the rural set ups. It is expected that with a conserved environment, there will be improved livelihoods.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    The area is an arid area that experiences very minimal rainfall. Due to these factors, there is environmental degradation and lack of water for livestock use. Mostly women and children (school-going) are most mostly affected as they are the ones who undertake fetching of water. Livestock are also affected. Through communal digging of local pan water collection dams, water will be available both for domestic and livestock use. A tree nursery will be established for the community to plant trees.

    Activities
    Collected water will be conserved and used both for domestic and livestock use. Trees planted will conserve the environment, mitigate climate change effects and children and mothers will have time to do other domestic chores. Less livestock deaths will be realized.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    In the long run, the project will mitigate climate change effects, the environment will be conserved. Kitchen gardens will also be established and nutrition at the household level will be improved.

    Summary
    This project aims in providing free education to underprivileged children, both boys and girls, who are first generation learners, coming from broken or shattered homes. Providing education to them helps in eradicating child labor in the region. Sevalaya's Mahakavi Bharathiyar Higher Secondary School is a Government recognized free school, started in the year 1988 and for the past 26 years has been producing excellent results in terms of Pass percentage, top scorers and drop out ratio

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Parents being landless laborers and due to rural indebtedness, children are deprived of education. Further poverty leads to starvation and mal-nourishment. Parents due to lack of awareness on the importance of education, involve the children in child labor. Sevalaya has been running the free school for the poor, destitute, underprivileged children for the past 26 years, using private funds received from philanthrophic individuals. 40 villages in the neighborhood are benefitted by Sevalaya School

    Activities
    By Free education, dormitary arrangement and free food arrangements, Sevalaya attempts to bring the children out of vicious cycle of poverty. As they need not shell out any money, parents do not stand any more in the way of children from pursuing education. Apart from education Sevalaya School also encourages the children in Sports, art and craft and other extra curricular activities. The BGV syllabus followed for Moral Education is an award winning program, which provides wholesome development

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Children passing out of our school excel not only in academics but also in life skills as we teach value education as part of our curriculum. Management and Teaching team also live and demonstrate the values that are taught. Hence, Sevalaya brings out responsible citizens ready to face the challenges in real life in a developing society. Many students get into professions and give back to society what they have learnt in Sevalaya. Child labor is completely eradicated in the community.
