Village Earth

Village Earth helps reconnect communities to the resources that promote human well-being by enhancing social and political empowerment, community self-reliance and self-determination. We do this by strengthening intermediate and grassroots organizations through fiscal sponsorship, networking, training, research and advocacy.

Interethnic Conflict Resolution School in Colombia
 
This fourth cohort of Jenzera's Interethnic School for Conflict Resolution will focus on the peace agreement between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).

Encourage Creativity in Cambodian Kids Through Art
 
Public school in Cambodia consists of route learning with creativity being stifled.

This program increases their confidence and their originality.
Support Menstrual Hygiene for 5000 Nepali Girls
 
With every $100 raised, we will distribute disposable sanitary napkins to rural school girls in order to develop their menstrual hygiene. Along with sanitary napkins we will be distributing the "Menstrupedia" book for menstrual awareness and dustbins for proper disposal. This ensures the hygienic practice of menstruation in rural area as well as minimization of menstrual taboo in local level through awareness book. For the proper disposal of napkins, dustbins will also be provided.
Provide Medical Support to 20 Rural Communities
 
Our target group is 20 native indigenous communities who are semi-nomadic and live in extreme poverty. These communities are far removed from urban centers and mobilizing these people is very difficult and expensive due to how remote they are. Therefore, it is very difficult for them to access medical centers. This project provides mobile medical care to 20 communities who otherwise would not have any access to this care.

Lakota Lands Recovery Project
 
The Lakota Lands Recovery Project began in 2003 to support Tribes and Individual American Indians in South Dakota to utilize their land base. Currently, of all the farms and ranches on South Dakota Reservations, less than 35% are operated by American Indians. The LLRP is working to reverse this statistic by providing grants to support Native land-based enterprises, providing technical support and outreach to Tribes and their members, educating the public and advocating for policy change. project reportread updates from the field
Provide Sewing Training to a Woman in Cambodia
 
With 20% of Cambodians living below the poverty line, vocational training is crucial for uneducated villagers to break the poverty cycle. Our ten-month sewing program not only teaches women the basics of sewing right through to elaborate ceremony tops, they also learn about chemical-free farming and life skills as part of our holistic approach to development.
