Global Roots

Global Roots improves the lives of orphans and disadvantaged children with support of local humanitarians from all over the world. We feel the best way to bring about positive change is to offer assistance to the humanitarians who have already taken the first step to help the children in their local community. They are our heroes and it is through them that Global Roots works to protect the world's most valuable asset, its children.
Rescue Maasai Girls from Female Genital Mutilation
 
$23,876
$4,124
Raised
Remaining
We are raising funds to cover the boarding school costs for 72 Maasai girls who ran away from home to avoid Female Genital Mutilation and early marriage. Earlier this year we sent a team to build the girls a vegetable garden next to their temporary rescue center. During our visit we learned that boarding school fees are more important. If we don't come up with the funds, the Kenyan gov will order the girls to be sent home because their current rescue center is too small to house so many girls. project reportread updates from the field
Provide Care for Afghanistan's Abandoned Children
 
$6,365
$18,635
Raised
Remaining
We have been working in Afghanistan since the US Air Force loaned us a few helicopters to do our work in 2010. Early supply missions helped us locate and test Janagha Jaheed (JJ), our local partner in Baharak, Badakshan. Eventually we worked with JJ to lay down our first Children's Garden and chicken egg farm. Local children, including 20 children who lost their fathers to war, spend time in our garden (we have a master gardener who does the planning and hard work) and take home vegetables/eggs. project reportread updates from the field
Keeping Kenyan Kids in School!
 
$3,710
$71,290
Raised
Remaining
We have created vegetable gardens and chicken egg farms that help keep Kenyan children in school. When local parents learn that their children can get a balanced meal at school -- they send them back. And when Kenyan school children eat a good meal at lunch -- they study better! We also provide solar lighting so that poor Kenyan school children can do their homework...and we are now supporting a woman who takes in little girls who are running away from forced marriage and FGM. project reportread updates from the field
