Summary

We are going beyond the frame with this project: after working with HIV+ women through photo work shops, they asked us to help raise funds for protein and dairy supplements for their SAFE house orphanage in Mae Sot, Thailand.

Challenge

Social Action for Women (SAW) has been working on the Thai/Myanmar border for more than 20 years. But they have seen their funding cut by 50% over the last year, as non-governmental organizations target work inside Myanmar. For the 80 orphans at the SAW Safe House, this has meant their diets do not have enough protein and dairy products.

Solution

Buying laying hens and feed will give them the means to improve their diets in a sustainable way. Additional funding will allow the purchase of meat and milk. It will also enable the expansion of their vegetable garden.

Long-Term Impact

To grow and develop, children need a healthy diet. Children don't learn on empty stomachs. This project will help give them a sustainable way to improve their diets and go on to productive adult lives.
