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 Prevent Polar Bear Extinction Through Conservation and Vital Research: Completed April 27, 2016

80,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

With increased knowledge, research can assist in identifying habitats to protect, as the polar bear is completely reliant on this specialized living environment. By increasing the areas that are protected, polar bears will have larger spaces for denning and raising their cubs. You can help. Your donation will go toward research and the conservation of diminishing polar bear habitat. It is imperative to protect polar bear habitat now before it’s too late.

Feed 5 Orphaned Chimpanzee Babies For 3 Months: Completed April 25, 2016

75622

120,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

Chimpanzees and gorillas in protected forests in Africa are shot down and butchered in the bushmeat trade, and the babies, who are too small to eat, are sold on the black market to be pets. In other areas, baby primates are stolen from the forest to be trafficked to China or the Middle East where they are sold as pets or put on exhibit in appallingly inhumane zoos. Thousands of chimpanzees and other primates who have been rescued as babies from the horrific wildlife trade now live at Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) member wildlife centers across Africa. You can help. Just $10 feeds a baby chimpanzee for one week.
