Doing Good with Greenhouses

Greenhouses are something you may not think much about... especially when it comes to promoting social justice. But, in many parts of the world where food and finances are scarce, greenhouses can provide a sustainble food source, as well as income generating opportunities. These small glass buildings are designed to optimize plant growth and grant communities access to fresh produce throughout the year. We've created several greenhouse projects in Kenya, which have been successful in providing [...] READ MORE

Lighting Up Lives

We recently replaced 44 light bulbs for LED lights in Kenya. This small change will have a big impact, as it will allow the home to save on their electric bill. What this means is that they can use more electricity for less money. So the 70 children that live there will now have lights during the evenings to do their school work. More lights and more chances to study- all while saving 90% on their electrical costs!     [...] READ MORE

Bring Back Our Girls: 2 Years Later

Photo: Unicef Canada Two years ago, the world witnessed the brutal abduction of 276 schoolgirls from Nigeria, who were simply studying for their classes, when their lives changed forever. While we still don’t know where many of those girls are today, at least 57 have successfully and daringly escaped. There is new hope that at least some of the girls are alive, from a video released by the terrorist group. None of the girls have been rescued and hundreds may still be in danger. The world came [...] READ MORE

Ending Hunger with an App

There’s a new app that is addressing an issue that is prevalent around the world and central to our work:  ‪#‎ hunger‬ . Companies can use the Copia app, and if they had an event, for instance, the leftover food would be picked up and donated to a food pantry or homeless shelter. Our current greenhouse project in Kenya is also attempting to address this problem, by growing fresh produce for the children of St. Catherine’s Home:  http://goo.gl/ahdROZ While we work all over the wo rld, [...] READ MORE

Technology and Human Rights

Photo: Micah Farfour/DigitalGlobe Here’s a cool story about the merging of technology with social justice. Now satellites are being used to expose human rights violations. This is really important because lots of places where these violations are occurring don’t allow outsiders. But, now with this new technology we can have a better idea of what’s happening in the world and how we can help. Read more: goo.gl/x957Fx   [...] READ MORE
