Agricultural Union Project

Gulu Women's Agricultural Union is working towards creating a self-sustaining Women's agricultural union among women farmers and farm workers in the WGEF program and the northern region of Uganda.

By mobilizing themselves and registering as an official union, they will be able to work more powerfully towards land procurement and stronger legal protection, enabling women a voice in policy development and addressing inequality.

Computer Education for Afghan Girls

Although more Afghan girls are attending school than ever before, many girls graduate or leave school without any marketable skills. Because many Afghan families are poor, those daughters who cannot bring extra money into the family are often forced into early marriage and child-bearing. Help the Afghan Children (HTAC) is making a difference for approximately 4,000 Afghan girls every year by enrolling them in our computer education program. HTAC was the first organization to introduce computer literacy into Afghan schools and this very special program teaches these girls key computer skills necessary for them to seek and obtain computer-related jobs in Afghanistan's emerging information technology marketplace. Over 75% of those girls who graduate from our program find well-paying and meaingful computer jobs, giving them pride, empowerment, and becoming productive citizens in Afghanistan's recovery.

dreamfly Rwanda

In 1994, Rwanda suffered through a horrific genocide, costing close to 1m Rwandans their lives. The small village of Cyingwa lost 132 members, tearing families, neighbors and the entire community apart. Survivors made the commitment to end the distrust and fear that had caused neighbors to turn against each other; to do the unthinkable and forgive for unspeakable crimes. The parents of Cyingwa, both survivors and perpetrators of the genocide, built the Cyingwa Primary school with their hands over a decade ago. They came together to build a future for their children different from and better than their own. And today, those children are working their brilliant little minds off, studying through the year, no summer vacations, and several of them coming first in the district! Today the school has 1036 students, 498 of which are girls. There is no running water, no electricity, and no proper toilets. thedreamfly.org is partnering with the Cyingwa community to expand the school through the addition of new classrooms and a computer lab, and offer high quality teacher training, so the brilliant kids of Cyingwa can build a brilliant future for Rwanda.

Education for Nicaraguan Girls

The public secondary schools in El Sauce, Nicaragua, often don't provide a good education due to lack of resources, closures and overcrowding. Instituto El Catolico Nuestro Senor de Milagros (El Catolico) is a private secondary school in town with an excellent record. All of their students who take the exams to enter college pass these exams, and students graduating from this school have a much better chance at success in their lives. One World Foundation is raising money to send four deserving girls to this school, in order that they can ultimately contribute to the welfare of their families and their community.

Expansion of surgical services in rural Nepal

Achham lacks adequate surgical services. Currently, the nearest Cesarean section capacity is over 5 hours away from Bayalpata Hospital. However, for most other surgical services, patients need to travel between 12 and 16 hours for care. This lack of nearby surgical services significantly increases the morbidity and mortality from surgical emergencies in Achham, especially obstetrical needs, as the maternal health situation is particularly dire. To address this need, we are implementing sustainable surgical and obstetrical health care services.

Fund a classroom in Uganda

More than 38 million children in sub-Saharan Africa are without a school to attend. Many countries have initiated programs guaranteeing a free education to every child, yet are plagued with chronic classroom shortages as they lack the means to construct enough schools to meet the demand. This often results in students walking miles to get to a "school" in a neighboring community, scribbling their lessons in the dirt for lack of proper learning materials or even gathering under a tree to learn. This project will fund the construction of one classroom in a community-built, stakeholder-sustained, primary-level academy for 325 students in rural Uganda. All in all, the academy will be comprised of seven classrooms, an office, a library, meeting space, toilets and an open field for recreation.

MRC Refugee Artisan Program

The Multicultural Refugee Coalition Sewing Lab teaches adult refugees settled to the Austin area technical skills in sewing to create clothes, bags, quilts and other products for themselves, their families and to sell. Refugees complete a series of self-passed lessons on the basics of how to operate and maintain a sewing machine, stitch styles, and how to read a pattern. Each week, refugees practice their English while learning new skills and assisting one another in learning how to sew and how to navigate their new home.

Scholarships for Girls in Gaza

The Middle East Children's Alliance (MECA) provides financial assistance to young Palestinian university students. Our scholarship funds enable talented and ambitious high school graduates to obtain degrees and the skills to make important contributions to their communities and their country. 


Often times, families in Gaza prioritize higher education for their male children as they are the traditional breadwinners so this scholarship fund for females is extra important and will provide the women and their future families with more chances at economic security and independence!
