A crash course in changing the world.

Help Release Bonded Girls from Nepal!

http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/free-bonded-girls-from-nepal/


This project rescues young Nepali girls from bonded servitude and provides them with six years of education, which will enable them to graduate from high school.

Nepali girls, some as young as six, are being sold by their families into bonded servitude. The families don't want to sell their daughters, but they can't afford to live without the $50 they receive for their daughters' labor. NYOF rescues these girls, gives each of their families a piglet or goat to replace the money from selling their daughter, and sponsors the girls' education for six years. This includes all school supplies, uniforms, books, and a kerosene lamp to study at night.

Activities

NYOF will rescue Nepali girls from being sold bonded servitude, and provide them with a complete education through their high school graduation. Many of these girls are the first females in their families to be educated.

Is it wrong that when I read the headline, I thought it was an offer for free bonded girls from Nepal?

I helped with a project similar to this in Chiang Mai, Thailand (and in Bangkok)--teaching micro-business skills, arts, singing... It is often the case in Thailand, as well--families do not want to sell children; some are told they are paying a fee for schooling and their daughters will work and study...and so the families don't ever "sell" the children at all. Now, more often, education, communication, internet/cel phones are diminishing the desperate isolation of these at risk families, which is some help. But the problem continues--with abduction if not money being exchanged... It is a terrible plight for the children, and the parents
Another thing that might assist is global extradition for child predators, should they be caught and prosecuted...
oh--and world peace. Really. Thank you for your post

This is an incredible venture, Joshua - thanks for sharing it! Don't forget to log it as your ACT 6 evidence just above the Power Vote section. =)

Thank you, Josh! Although I have personally donated to only one project so far, "Save a Mom's Life in the Congo" http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/oprah/ , this one strikes a particular chord with me... while we can't solve problems with money, we can certainly add momentum with it! $19 will free one young lady -- and this action indirectly impacts the well-being of Humanity at large.

Next payday I'll be adding to this venture as well...

Oh, yes I added it to the log. Thanks again!

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
