raised for education, advocacy and on-the-ground relief and development projects.

Our current work focuses on the ongoing crises in Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
Darfur, the western region of Sudan, is host to the 21st century's first genocide. Up to 400,000 people have been killed since 2003 in a systematic and state-sponsored campaign to clear the region of its non-Arab tribes.
Raging since 1996, the conflict in DRC is the deadliest since WWII. Over 5.4 million civilians have been killed by war-related violence, hunger, and disease.
Solar Cooker Project
By manufacturing solar cookers, Darfuri refugee women use natural energy from the sun to heat meals without the need for long and often dangerous walks to collect firewood.
Safe Motherhood Project
This project serves two purposes: women gain the skills of running a small business, and then the proceeds of their sales fund their pre-natal and maternal care. The right and ability to preserve their health, usually not prioritized, is put into their capable hands.
