July 15 is GlobalGiving Match Day!

Wednesday, July 15   is Globalgiving.org Bonus Match Day

Stable funding is important to the success of our arts programs at Champey. Our arts  programs offer access to arts and education to disadvantaged and  at- risk children and youth. Without you, or donors, none of the programs would be possible. As you review our projects, you will see that the are interconnected. As a way to manage scarce resources and funding, we first try to see if we can use existing programs to supplement needs in other Kasumisou projects. For example the Summer Arts Camp builds upon the foundation progam of Champey Academy.

Please review our program updates and consider whether you might again join us in our efforts to provide these . We have summarized the features of the Bonus Match below.

July 15 is GlobalGiving Bonus Match Day !

Wednesday, July 15   is Globalgiving.org Bonus Match Day

Since 2000 we have assisted fragile families impacted by the twin burdens of extreme poverty and HIV/AIDs. Often, we function as the " family for family" providing  not only social support but also guidance as to how to handle difficult situations. Each family has its own unique needs, and our Family Support Team meets with each family at least one time per week, sometimes daily if needed. Solutions to problems are individualized and sometimes requires  a complex overview of what might be available .

We currently have  a young  member of our FSP who has developed a serious medical condtiom  and we have advised by local doctors to seek more sophisticated assistance in Bangkok.  Working with our home care team  we have , over the past few  weeks, arranged for bus  transportation to Bangkok ( 11 hours one way) and medical testing  as well as temporary housing for those family members accompanying. Now as in times past, we must step in to try to identify  the "big picture"  and see what might be done to assist   the individual and and identify and manage its potential impact upon  the family. Unlike the developed world, there is no insurance or socialized medical care for these fragile families to fall back on, so there are times when our oversight can mean  all of the difference.

Stable funding is essential because it  allows us  to support  the fragile families in our AIDS support program and help the family to access the medical care that they need and that would otherwise be unavaiable . Sometimes the help is financial, other times it is in the form of providing information and oversight to coordinate treatment. The Bonus Match day is vitally important to our ability to continue to fund our program through the summer months.  Without you, our donors, this program  would not be possible. As you review our projects, you will see that they are interconnected. As a way to manage scarce resources and funding, we first try to see if we can use existing programs to supplement needs in other Kasumisou projects. For example our education programs for children impacted by AIDS  build upon the foundation progam of our AIDS support program. 

We would be grateful if you can  review our program updates and consider whether you might again join us in our efforts to continue to offer this program to support fragile families  impacted by extreme poverty and HIV/AIDS.  We have summarized the features of the Bonus Match below.

Thank you again for your kind support.

July 15 is GlobalGiving Bonus Match Day !

Wednesday, July 15     9:00 am EDT   is the start of  Globalgiving.org Bonus Match Day

Since the beginning of our  AIDS Patient Family Support Program ( FSP)   in and other programs like our Rural Assistance Program  ( RAP)  , since 2000  we have encouraged kid to stay in school. At first the goal was just to graduate from middle school, then it became high school. Some of the students in our programs even dared to dream of a college education.

We have 12 college students now, either from our FSP or our RAP,   all from families where they are "firsts": first to be able to read, first to attend school, first to complete high  school and definitely the  first to attend college ! ( please  visit our project pages for both of these on GlobalGiving)

Without you, our donors, none of the programs would be possible. As you review our projects, you will see that they are interconnected. As a way to manage scarce resources and funding, we first try to see if we can use existing programs to supplement needs in other Kasumisou projects. For example our college students have access to safe employment via our Jobs for Youth program so that they can earn money for personal expenses while attending college. Some of our students live at Champey Academy, our art school.

Stable funding is important to the success of our students ability to continue on in their college programs and the Bonus Match day is vitally important to our ability to fund their tuition. .

 We would be grateful if you can  review our program updates and consider whether you might again join us in our effortss.  We have summarized the features of the Bonus Match below.

Thank you again for your kind support,
