    Food
    Imagine seeing your children slowly starving… and having nothing to feed them. For countless destitute families, this is a grim reality. Your gift today will bring lifesaving food to hungry children and their families.
    Housing
    For the poorest of the poor, “home” might be little more than a few sticks, mud, and scraps of plastic or metal. Your gift for housing will help provide a family with a safe, basic home and restore their human dignity.
    Water
    Clean, safe drinking water is essential for life. In developing countries, access to safe drinking water can be limited, often resulting in serious illnesses and death. Your gift will help provide lifesaving water to those lacking clean drinking water and sanitation.
    Medical Care
    In developing countries, hospitals and clinics often lack the most basic equipment and supplies to treat patients. Doctors and nurses often stand by helplessly, unable to administer lifesaving aid. Your gift can help provide items ranging from basic anti-diarrhea medicine to advanced medical equipment.
    Education
    Unlike in the United States, education in developing countries is not free. Parents must pay for uniforms, books, school supplies and other necessities. Children too poor to attend school are often sent to work on the streets, and so a lack of education reinforces the vicious cycle of poverty. Your gift for education can help break that cycle and will benefit a child for a lifetime.
    Micro-Enterprise Development
    Often, poor families are trapped in poverty because they have no viable means of earning income. What better way to help improve lives than to give a village the means to sustain itself economically? Your gift for a self-sustaining project will have a profound and lasting effect in the lives of those you help.

After long course of interaction with the people, under the leadership of community of leaders, volunteers took up the responsibility to cleanse the heaps of decomposing garbage, repair of drinking water bore well plot forms, and diversion of stagnated water to drainage. The villagers unanimously resolved to keep clean their surroundings of households and protect drinking water from contamination.

    Food
    Imagine seeing your children slowly starving… and having nothing to feed them. For countless destitute families, this is a grim reality. Your gift today will bring lifesaving food to hungry children and their families.
    Housing
    For the poorest of the poor, “home” might be little more than a few sticks, mud, and scraps of plastic or metal. Your gift for housing will help provide a family with a safe, basic home and restore their human dignity.
    Water
    Clean, safe drinking water is essential for life. In developing countries, access to safe drinking water can be limited, often resulting in serious illnesses and death. Your gift will help provide lifesaving water to those lacking clean drinking water and sanitation.
    Medical Care
    In developing countries, hospitals and clinics often lack the most basic equipment and supplies to treat patients. Doctors and nurses often stand by helplessly, unable to administer lifesaving aid. Your gift can help provide items ranging from basic anti-diarrhea medicine to advanced medical equipment.
    Education
    Unlike in the United States, education in developing countries is not free. Parents must pay for uniforms, books, school supplies and other necessities. Children too poor to attend school are often sent to work on the streets, and so a lack of education reinforces the vicious cycle of poverty. Your gift for education can help break that cycle and will benefit a child for a lifetime.
    Micro-Enterprise Development
    Often, poor families are trapped in poverty because they have no viable means of earning income. What better way to help improve lives than to give a village the means to sustain itself economically? Your gift for a self-sustaining project will have a profound and lasting effect in the lives of those you help.

  14. Peter Zamhen Hangmi says:

    ZICORD is working with all section of people including Women Group in the North Eastern Region of India. We included both men and women while building Gender perspective and women empowerment, believing that it is men folks who really needs gender sensitivity and equity in Family and Society. The ancient civilization/traditional practices are still in practice which deprived women of their rights and privileges, thereby, violating woman’s rights and political participation in decision making body etc. Through our approaches and intervention some changes have taken place in some villages to include women in village Authority and local decision making bodies. But still more work is needed to bring women in the forefront.
    Is there any door opened for men headed organization to apply for the fund ?

  18. Eugene Atabong Atem says:

    I am the head of the Youth Alliance for Democracy and Development(YADD) Buea,Cameroon.Recently in collaboration with the management of YADD,I have just published a storybook that dwells on various life-skills and and civic education for youths particularly the girl child.Most parents will learn about child parent relationship on this. The various incidence and experiences the main character goes through and becomes successful,could prick everyone to set up, particularly in relating with the girl child and of-course close the gaps that usually cause unnecessary conflicts against women in their communities.

    ‘Catch them young,’it is often said.And this is our strategy.We wish to use this very educative material to target especially the youths so that they start taking about promoting the right values in society.

    Bravo to the UN Trust Fund for thinking in this direction.Your can have a taste of this storybook searching through Google using the title,LUM BECOMES HAPPY, by Eugene Atabong Atem,published by Aurthor House,UK.You can also order a copy from Aurthor House bookstore,website or online stores like Amazon.com or Barnes (bn.com).

    Greetings from Uganda.
    Recently, my colleague was attacked by ACID under suspected marital circumstances in her very home. The Husband who is a also a senior lecturer in Makerere University is now behind Police bars on alleged acid attack on his wife. Therefore, this incident has accelerated my institution which is faith based to come out and boldly join hands with other players to fight gender based violence. Its real and a barbaric act against women. Thumbs up for this fund which I am very sure will be very useful in helping in increasing awareness on dangers of GBV in our society.
