Along with Anaiya, we learned that a pair of shoes is never "just" a pair of shoes. Would you like to find ways to help kids and families around the world get a pair of shoes?

Challenge

Babies living in extreme poverty around the world have to choose between food & diapers. Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey have compounded this situation. Our partner agency, The Rebecca Foundation, is working diligently to assist the most vulnerable children, and they struggle to find enough funding and supplies to help these babies. Imagine re-using a disposable diaper simply because you can't afford for your baby otherwise - that's a decision many of these families have made.

Solution

Just 24 cloth diapers can diaper a baby from infancy through potty-training, meaning these babies can finally have diapers, instead of going without. Through our Diaper Drops, we are helping local organizations leverage the funds they have available to better care for their babies in other ways. In many places, organizations see decreased infant mortality rates and increased quality of life through cleaner environments and more availability of basic living needs.

Long-Term Impact

As our partner organizations in the United States continue to have their diaper needs solved, they are able to save funds and plan for future improvements as part of hurricane recovery and rebuilding. This can mean adding educational programs, offering better healthcare, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these babies up for long term survival and productive members of society.

Challenge

Agriculture drives 80% of deforestation and produces 1.5 billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year. More than 70% of the global food supply is produced by smallholders: many of whom live well below the poverty line and struggle with limited access to resources. For these communities, the impacts of climate change are already real rather than hypothetical - in today's hyper-connected world, fighting climate change and building resilience to its impact are urgent priorities for us all.

Solution

We're working in some of the world's most vulnerable regions to conserve forests, protect rivers, and nurture healthy soil. With an increasingly unstable global climate, farmers are faced with a growing challenge to produce enough for their families and for our planet. Connecting rural communities to climate-smart agricultural practices, each other, and the world is an important step towards climate adaptation and food security. The training app reaches millions of farmers with one simple tool.

Long-Term Impact

The race to feed the world's growing population (9.8 billion by 2050) while conserving natural resources begins now. Climate-smart agriculture increases yield without expanding farmland or destroying fragile ecosystems. With low-cost mobile devices and telecommunications increasingly available in developing nations, agricultural technology is a vital way to collaborate and ensure food security. If we want to save forests and natural resources, we need to connect with farmers to feed our future.
