Today is GlobalGiving "Matching Day" and we are excited to be fund-raising for an innovative model Altai village that will immerse city kids of Altai descent in their culture -- which may be their only access to their heritage. Your donation this morning will get an extra 30% matching bonus.

The sash around my waist in the photo is a traditional way of honoring people. I had just brought English-language primers to her small village library so her students could practice reading English -- a necessary skill, unfortunately, for articulately protecting their traditional culture.

The matching starts at 9am ET and goes until the matching funds are all allocated, which usually takes not more than half a day. So please donate immediately if you can.

Your donation not only enables this project, but it also is a significant step toward the preservation of ancient indigenous wisdom that our world cannot afford to lose. Thank you for both previous and future donations!!!

Today is GlobalGiving "Matching Day" and your donation will pay for land surveying and registration for a model ethnic Altai village that will serve as a cultural hub for Altai children living in the city of Gorno-Altaisk. AND the project will get an extra 30% matching bonus with your donation.

The matching starts at 9am ET and goes until the matching funds are all allocated, which usually takes not more than half a day. So please donate immediately if you can.

Our project leader, Altai elder Svetlana Katynova, has persuaded the local government to provide the land for the village for free. She has thirty volunteers who will build the village and live in it, but your donation is needed to secure the land.

Thank you hugely for both previous and future donations!!!

Today is GlobalGiving "Matching Day" and the indigenous Altai youths who are dedicating their lives to sustaining their sacred culture will receive an extra 30% matching bonus with your donation.

The matching starts at 9am ET and goes until the matching funds are all allocated, which usually takes not more than half a day. So please donate immediately if you can.

These young people are faced with the terrible choice of sticking with their culture and depending on international help until they can get their feet under themselves or abandoning their ancient culture and entering a job market that is strongly prejudicial against them.

Your donation enables them to hang onto their culture and steward their sacred lands just a little bit longer. Thank you for both previous and future donations!!!
