Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project educates orphans in 2 free primary schools and 1 free secondary and vocational school. You provide 2 daily meals, access to clean water, medicine, sanitary products, and assistance for their caretakers who are typically their grandmothers. Despite walking 7 miles to school and living without electricity, your students are outperforming most others! We have promised to fund their education through university as long as they pass their exams. You are making this happen!
In Vietnam, 2,000 children die on the roads each year. To address this situation, this project will instill safe road habits in 1,500 Vietnamese children by providing helmets, training teachers on effective education techniques, engineering safety into school environments, and raising community awareness of road safety. Not only do these interventions ensure that students can get to school safely; in the long-term, these healthy habits will serve to improve the entire road system in Vietnam.
Teachers and students of 40 schools in Bolivia will be trained on how to obtain safe drinking water and improve hygiene conditions at school. Simple and affordable technologies like Solar Water Disinfection (SODIS) will be promoted.
