The following highlights some of the projects that we have funded:
Supporting Early Childhood Development in Malawi
By engaging with existing church coalitions, this project seeks to empower and support community based churches in establishing and managing Early Childhood Development centers and pre schools for foundational education and nutrition support. The program integrates childcare, education, nutrition support and micro enterprise to provide a comprehensive approach to Early Childhood Development in addition to generating regular income. Currently, we are working in 4 districts in Malawi to support 128 new centers and 28,800 children.
Combating Trafficking and Restoring Human Liberty in India and Nepal
The India Nepal Human Liberty Initiative (INHLI) is dedicated to combating human trafficking, exploitation, and slavery in all of its forms, including bonded labor, commercial sexual exploitation, child labor and unsafe migration at the border region between India and Nepal. Through the collaborating with 28 anti-slavery organizations, INHLI implements programs that prioritize collaborating with prevention initiatives, survivor rescue, rehabilitation, and prosecution of traffickers. To date, over 240,000 people have benefitted from these initiatives- including legal protection to over 700 survivors.
Closing the Education Inequality Gap
By holding all students to the same standards, the Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP) works in schools across the nation to ensure that zip code does not define destiny. Each KIPP school shares the same foundation: high expectations, choice & commitment, more time, power to lead, and focus on results. These tenets are combined with a pervasive emphasis on college completion that starts in kindergarten. Our support helps KIPP Philadelphia expand their focus on the high school counseling program of the KIPP DuBois Collegiate Academy. The College Counseling department works closely with teachers, parents, students, and the greater Philadelphia community to ensure our students are equipped with the knowledge and tools they need to successfully matriculate to and thrive in college.
