The Imagine Project

The Imagine Project, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation, was founded on the principle that there exists within each child a creative energy which must not lie dormant. Eventually, as with all sources of power, it must either extinguish itself, excel or explode.

HELP (Hope, Educate, Love and Protect)

http://helpchildren.org

We believe it is every child’s birthright to receive hope for a better future, education to grow, unconditional love, and protection from disease and illness.  We address Malawi’s teacher shortage by pairing government teachers with local assistant teachers and international volunteer teachers. With a strong emphasis on sustainable development, we strive to transform primary (elementary) schools into epicenters of social and economic development. Our partnership with the socially-conscious tourism agency Wilderness Safaris helps us to bring our vision of rural development to the most remote regions in Africa.

Education for the Children

http://www.eftc.org.uk

EFTC's mission is to break the cycle of poverty through education and empowerment. We work in partnership with disadvantaged families, children and young adults in Guatemala, Central America to ensure they develop the tools they need to break free from the cycle of poverty. We have a school in Jocotenango, Guatemala: an urban area where extreme poverty, gang crime, domestic violence and alcoholism are everyday realities. Food, healthcare, counselling and career guidance at the school remove obstacles to education and enable these students to realise their potential.
