"Let us break this remaining frontier of oppression. This is the human rights imperative of the 21st century. Every donation helps and will make a difference. We provide a safe space where hundreds of Syrian refugee women can access protection, empowerment and life skills training as well as help train a gender equality advocate through our Fund for Gender Equality to engage in national discussions and debate in transition or conflict countries with a changing political climate such as in the Middle East and North Africa."
"CITTA plans to develop an innovative school/cooperative initiative to provide young girls with an education in combination with a women’s economic development program. This is a unique program that unites education and economic development at the same site as a means of enhancing gender parity. Too often, young girls find few economic opportunities that are further limited by their lack of any formal education. With this initiative, mothers (and other women) will be able to attend with the girls from their community to the site. While the children are receiving a formal, basic education, the women will be receiving skill training by local artisans encompassing a range of specialties designed to enable and empower their future economic independence. This will offer the opportunity to provide income generation while producing an array of products that will significantly enhance the region’s tourism trade."
"At Generation Ubuntu, we see the person first, not the illness. HIV is no longer a death sentence – it is a manageable condition and the right whole-person care can enable children to live full, successful and meaningful lives. Generation Ubuntu improves the health and well-being of children and teens living with HIV in South Africa through a comprehensive care model of health and nutrition, psycho-social support, HIV and life skills education, and community engagement. The children love the program and we can keep the support going with your help!"
