Since the earthquakes this spring, thousands of Nepalese children are living in "Tent Cities." These tent cities lack proper shelter, sanitation, water resources, and safe living conditions. We seek to provide two community centers for children living in these precarious situations. These centers will be constructed with safe materials and offer nourishment and educational programs. Help us create a safe environment for these beautiful children!
Tragically, orphanages have become a business in Nepal. We have discovered numerous orphanages using vulnerable children to gain donations from well-meaning people throughout the world. Many of these children are mistreated and are disabled or have special needs. Our goal is to take over these orphanages and ensure that all children are being cared for with dignity and love.
We believe that writing the stories of your life helps make sense of your experiences and builds greater self-knowledge. This self-knowledge empowers individuals to make positive life choices. We run writing workshops for victims of trafficking, helping them come to terms with their past and move forward with strength, courage, and grace.
We run journalism workshops to help those with challenging jobs like social work to speak for the voiceless with the power and dignity they deserve. We are creating a blog, magazine, and books in order to share their experiences throughout the world. We hope to arouse people’s interests by hearing these stories, encouraging everyone to become more engaged in their communities and the wider world.
With makeshift stoves and a lack of education, fires and burns are a big problem in Nepal, especially for women. The problem has grown since the earthquake. People living in tents struggle to cook and keep their homes warm, leading to numerous accidents that the hospitals are unable to deal with properly. We are putting together medical missions with top burn surgeons from the US, as well as creating a media blitz to teach people about fire safety.
We provide inspiring, interactive workshops in human rights to students of all ages, helping them to understand what it means to live in a democracy and engage with societal institutions. After the workshops, we help the students create "human rights clubs" in their schools. We provide materials, ongoing assistance and lots of encouragement. We also help to connect them with students around the world, as well as empower them to start projects with community partners. We challenge students to wrestle with difficult issues and to have some fun!
