Send Five Girls To School

FUNDED April 15 2013 – Thank You!

NYF_OlgaMurray_2012When Olga Murray first visited Nepal, she saw girls sold by desperately poor families into lives of servitude or worse. So she decided to make a difference, by working with the families and providing the one the thing that they couldn’t afford: education for their children.

Twenty-two years later, people call Olga a modern-day abolitionist and “the Mother Teresa” of Nepal. She has received awards from the Dalai Lama and the King of Nepal for her considerable achievements since her creation of the Nepal Youth Foundation. All the more amazing is that she began this philanthropic endeavor in 1990 after she retired as an attorney for the California State Supreme Court.

“I just wish I started sooner,” said Murray, who celebrated her 87th birthday in 2012. “There is still so much to accomplish.” Under her stewardship, the Nepal Youth Foundation has freed more than 12,000 young girls from indentured servitude. In turn, these girls have gone back into their communities to work with others and help stop the practice.

Currently, NYF is one of Nepal’s biggest non-governmental providers of scholarships for both girls and boys. Your click today will help them send five more girls to school and, through their efforts, ensure countless more have their chance at a better life.

GreaterGood.org’s contributions to programs to empower children through education are made possible by the support of donors, shoppers, and clickers at The Literacy Site.

Help Save the Critically Endangered Grauer’s Gorilla: Completed March 22, 2017

44,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

The Grauer’s gorilla is the world’s largest ape, weighing up to 400 pounds. In 2016, it was classified as Critically Endangered. Scientific research showed a shocking decrease of Grauer’s gorillas due to illegal hunting and civil unrest in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) works with partners in the Democratic Republic of Congo and beyond to ensure gorilla population remains stable through ranger training, patrol, intelligence networks, and more. WCS also ensures that local communities have sustainable sources of livelihood—providing both food and income—so locals do not need to hunt apes or encroach into protected forests. With your donation WCS can continue to provide these services in areas that need it most.

Help Veterans Restore and Preserve Coral Reefs: Completed March 15, 2017

42,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

Home to one-quarter of the world’s marine life, coral reefs are critically important for food, income, protection and new medicines. They are some of the most biologically diverse ecosystems on the planet, yet 60% of the world’s coral reefs are now dead or in decline. For combat veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, moving on from the pain and trauma they’ve experienced can be almost impossible. To better assimilate, these men and women must be made to realize that they are not alone and that their skills and training are transferable. For our participating veterans, FORCE BLUE provides a new mission: a chance to learn about and explore one of the most critically endangered ecosystems on the planet and the opportunity to adapt their training and teamwork to aid in its protection.
