PROJECTS

SYRIAN REFUGEE CHILDREN

In Lebanon, Jordan and Greece, True Change Global Fund is working with individuals and organizations to provide education and assistance to Syrian refugee children.

 

Many refugee children need psychosocial support due to their exposure to violence and other traumatic events. Their needs include prevention of and response to physical violence, verbal harassment, or pressure, particularly among adolescent boys, to return to Syria to fight. Refugee children subject to sexual violence, child labor and early marriage also require correct identification and referral for assistance by appropriately trained professionals. Separated or unaccompanied children need safe living arrangements and assistance to help locate and reunite them with their families, whenever possible. Educational opportunities, support to parents, and activities targeting adolescents can contribute to protecting refugee children against negative coping mechanisms and a wide range of child-specific protection risks.

PUERTO RICO

Hurricane Maria was one of the most catastrophic natural disasters in the history of the United States. According to conservative estimates, 250,000 homes were lost, on an island of approximately 3.4 million people.

 

True Change Global Fund is focusing on two important projects to assist the people of Puerto Rico

Solar Energy Kits: Solar panels supply enough electricity to power the lights and small appliances of a home. The panels can be quickly removed from the house if another storm approaches, and easily reinstalled after. These kits allow people to remain in their homes and communities and begin redeveloping local economies. This is the core of sustainability. Solar energy is a permanent solution.

 

Getting Small Businesses Operating Again: Many small business owners were devastated, their homes or micro-businesses lost. True Change Global Fund is focused on providing the resources to help these owners rebuild their homes and businesses, get back in operation and once again become financially sustainable. This will ultimately assist in rebuilding the foundation of the more disadvantaged sector of the Puerto Rican economy.

AMANI CHILDREN'S HOME

For over 15 years, Amani Children’s Home has been dedicated to the protection of Tanzania’s most vulnerable population: street children.

 

Amani, which means “peace” in Swahili, was founded by Tanzanians, and over the course of the past decade has rescued hundreds of children from the perils of life on the streets, where they face numerous dangers including malnutrition and abuse.

 

Amani provides healthy food, education, counseling and medical care for every street child who turns to us for help.

Amani aims to reunite children with their relatives when possible and to equip their families with the tools they need to be self-sustainable. Amani is dedicated to creating a path for each child that leads to a future filled with hope. 

NEPAL EARTHQUAKE

The April 2015 Nepal earthquake killed more than 9,000 people and injured more than 23,000.  Hundreds of thousands of people were made homeless with entire villages flattened across many districts of the country. Centuries-old buildings were destroyed at UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Kathmandu Valley.

 

Nepal, is one of Asia's poorest countries, and has little ability to fund a major reconstruction effort on its own.

Close to 1.7 million children had been driven out into the open, and were in desperate need of drinking water, psychological counsel, temporary shelters, sanitation and protection from disease outbreak.

True Change Global Fund is focused on funding schools and safe spaces for these children to attend during their displacement..
