In Nicaragua, nearly 1 million people have no access to safe drinking water and nearly half the population does not have access to adequate sanitation. This project seeks to help families get access to clean water and tackles the problem of air pollution from wood-burning stoves.
Since 2013, through INSAAF, Migrant Domestic Workers (MDWs) in Lebanon who have been marginalized and imprisoned are given hope, guidance and advocacy.
This project seeks to raise $8,000 each year to help 100 students with learning needs and disabilities to be prepared for school. The challenges of special needs children are great and even further challenging when families are unable to equip their children with uniforms and books so they can learn.
All it takes is $1 a day for the education for a child in the D.R. But for many families it is a struggle to afford therequired school uniforms, supplies and monthly fees. The Student Tuition Expense Program makes it possible for the children to attend school every day.
By paying school fees for the children of NightLight employees, this project will not only help these kids get an education, but also reduce the financial burden on their families so that the women do not feel the need to return to the sex trade to provide for their children.
