OperationREAD

OperationREAD was created to provide literacy support to schools and the Mongu community in of schoolchildren to read and general. More specifically the OperationREAD GlobalGiving campaign was designed to help provide the funding needed to teach out of school children to read a well as the construction of a library.
In addition to out of school children, OperationREAD was expanded to include children in school that were struggling to read. With funding from donors though GlobalGiving, a piece of land was also acquired for the construction of a library.
The program however has encountered challenges in reaching its fundraising goals, as s result,  the program has been suspended in ten schools and will currently run only at the local library.
Even with funding challenges, we continue to make progress. While the number of beneficiaries has reduced considerably with the suspension of the program schools, we continue to reach the community’s most vulnerable providing them with an opportunity for learning that would otherwise be denied to them. 
Forty students have been enrolled into the upcoming classes being twenty children and adults. The classes are scheduled to in Mid May. It is hoped that the reading program will resume in the schools with the availability of the much needed resources.
We continue to encourage new and previous donors to consider rendering their financial support to help meet program objectives.

Conservation Nation

Conservation Nation was started with the goal of working with school children to raise awareness about the importance of the environment and the role individual and communities have to play in protecting and preserving it.
In addition to raising awareness, the project also works with school going children to raise indigenous tree nurseries as well as plant trees to help fight the effects of environmental degradation and climate change.

An initial ten (10) schools were enlisted to participate. All ten did well while the rain lasted but performance has suffered after the rain season. This is mainly due to the erratic water supply at the schools. Currently Conservation Nation is running only in two of the initial ten (10) schools which are also facing challenges with access to water.

It was initially envisioned that funds from the Global Giving campaign would be utilized to help provide water to the schools to support project implementation among other things but the fundraising performance is poor.

We continue to look at ways in which to improve Global Giving fundraising performance. We are most grateful to those that have already rendered their support. Without them, what has been accomplished so far would not have been.
  We also continue to encourage previous to share the campaign with their networks and encourage them to support Conservation Nation.
