    Programs Worth Supporting

    Please let me know of any programs you'd like to see added to this list.

    WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL

    http://www.womenforwomen.org/

    Helping women survivors of war rebuild their lives.

    Women for Women International supports women in war-torn regions with financial and emotional aid, job-skills training, rights education and small business assistance so they can rebuild their lives.

    This program offers opportunities to sponsor and correspond with a specific individual. Your generous gift of sponsorship will provide a woman survivor of war with the resources she needs to move from victim to active citizen. This gift of sponsorship offers an experience like no other because you will know exactly who you are helping. In fact you will be corresponding with your sponsored sister – sharing, inspiring, offering encouragement and giving her the emotional support she needs to help change her life.

    KIVA.ORG

    http://kiva.org/

    Kiva.org allows you to make a micro-loan to a specific entrepeneur in the developing world -- empowering them to lift themselves out of poverty.

    Kiva's mission is to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty.

    Kiva is the world's first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs in the developing world.

    The people you see on Kiva's site are real individuals in need of funding - not marketing material. When you browse entrepreneurs' profiles on the site, choose someone to lend to, and then make a loan, you are helping a real person make great strides towards economic independence and improve life for themselves, their family, and their community. Throughout the course of the loan (usually 6-12 months), you can receive email journal updates and track repayments. Then, when you get your loan money back, you can relend to someone else in need.

    NASHUA SOUP KITCHEN & SHELTER, INC

    http://www.nsks.org/Home.asp

    The Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter is dedicated to providing shelter and food to those in need. The overall objective of the agency is to advocate, create, and operate programs and services that promote dignity and self-sufficiency for those they serve.

    HEIFER.ORG

    http://www.heifer.org/

    "Bringing and End to World Hunger Through Unimaginable Blessings."

    Today, millions of people who were once hungry will be nourished by milk, eggs and fresh vegetables.

    Families who for generations knew only poverty will be building new homes and starting businesses.

    Children who once headed out to the fields to do backbreaking work will be heading into schoolrooms to learn to read.

    And people who never thought they’d be in a position to help someone else will be experiencing the joy of charitable giving.

    How is this possible?

    With Heifer’s proven approach – almost 60 years in the making – to helping people obtain a sustainable source of food and income.
