New Partnerships and New Projects Launched

Let Us Build Ourselves Literacy Class

We are delighted to share we have formed a new partnership with Jewish Helping Hands and deepened our partnership with the J.A. Clark Charitable Trust to provide mezzanine funding for several of our existing projects to help sustain and expand their operations in 2010. This will allow:

Hard Workers, a project fighting sexual exploitation of vulnerable women for water, to expand to a second site, serving another 1000 people

Think About the Young Girls, to complete construction of a new bathing facility at the site of their latrines which protect girls from rape and ensure they do not drop out at the age of menstruation. It will also provide feminine products and supplies for one year.

Achieving a Better Life, to produce new plays fighting domestic violence and, with the additional support of the Rebecca Davis Dance Company, to make a new documentary film.

Let Us Build Ourselves, to continue offering its literacy and math classes to a new class of 20 vulnerable women.

Invincible Vision 20/20, to expand its literacy classes to another 226 women and add an animal husbandry program to compensate its teachers.

We are thrilled by the support of these partners and the continued social impact of our teams into their second and third year of operations.

We are about to complete construction on another water project, Have a Good Life, which should be operational by March, and anticipate launching three more projects fighting violence against women before April. We welcome any of your comments and questions about the projects.

Thank you for your continued support!
