We will provide sustainable animal husbandry training and resources to impoverished families. AMAR Haiti provides families in this community with goat production training and resources, empowering them to take on the role of skilled animal and public health community leaders. Eventually, they will cooperatively own and manage the goat business and train subsequent families, propagating the program and ensuring its sustainability. The project will support financial independence, provide a sustainable source of nutrition, improve Haitian goat genetics, and eventually become a novel training opportunity for veterinary students - their participation will inspire and equip them to seed additional AMAR projects throughout Haiti and beyond.

I would hope that by giving children a basic education, especially those who are unable to afford it, I would be able to give them a better chance in life. I believe that those without education are easy to be taken advantage of and be mindlessly controlled by people in power. In face of corruption and an unfortunate life circumstance, children who suffer in poverty are typically unable to escape their predicament. By working with the lives of little ones, I would not only be able to give them a brighter future, but also give them the opportunity to better their family's situation, and to give back to their communities.

Our idea is dual-natured in it's benefit for local communities. We contribute and support with day-to-day needs but at the same time, provide long term support in creating an online presence. This saves their immediate resources whilst expanding their ongoing outreach. By raising the profile of the places we visit, we strengthen a vital and positive example within the community and therefore, importantly, help to inspire a mindful change both locally and globally.

Connect Africa Foundation, a non-profit founded in 2005, helps people of Uganda invest in themselves and in the future of their community. Currently Connect Africa's new endeavor is to construct a library for the local community of Jogo, Uganda. In a country where education is limited to the wealthy, the desire to go to school is of utmost importance to families. A library filled with books will give the villagers an education which they so rightfully deserve. This will create a local meeting place where people can come and learn. It will enable volunteers to communicate with the locals through the universal language of books.

This year, we're funding the construction of five wells in communities in Haiti that are still recovering from the earthquake. Water is ESSENTIAL to live, that's a pretty positive impact. In the past, we've funded housing, libraries, and a school. And we always carefully research our recipients to make sure our projects are locally partnered and have sustainability built in -- it's not bungee philanthropy, we just kind of start the ball rolling. The image I've included shows one of our founders cutting the ribbon at the school we funded in rural Cambodia.

This idea creates a positive impact on local communities not only in Cambodia, but in Hawaii and the US because it reminds us to be healthy ourselves. You need to practice what you preach! To fully help them, we need to first help ourselves. We need to know whats healthy and to appreciate that we have access to all the resources we do, and make the best of it.

Feeding the bottled water industry has taken a toll on wells from homes in rural communities by draining aquifers, lowered lake levels, and hurt wetlands. It takes three times as much water than is produced. In addition, globally 2.7 million tons of water bottle plastic is used annually, the vast majority of which ends up as littler or in a landfill. Local communities cannot handle this trash.

We recognize the unique talents of youth and help them to develop into skilled and well-rounded individuals through movement, education, and leadership training. The program offers the immediate benefit of a meal program, giving children the opportunity to learn, dance, and be joyous on a full stomach.

Local youth are provided with a safe and creative environment in which to build confidence through creativity. Multi-faceted education will empower youth to become the leaders of tomorrow.

People respond to people. Coming back and just asking for money doesn't have the same impact as bringing back hand painted pictures (and photos - with stories of the children who painted them). If you make this an annual event, get a local school involved and take paintings back and forth to help educate others about needs in other parts of the world.

Creativity is extremely important in the growth and development of every child. My dream is to promote art in rural Nepal and through workshops give practical and affordable ways that it can be incorporated into schools. Most of the children have never even held a crayon or had the opportunity to partake in any type of art activity.

In addition, the K-pop movement in France is very overwhelming. Recently, from Oct. 23 to 29, the concert of K-pop was held. So, I would also like to play Korean songs for background music. As sharing Korean food in France, I will be looking forward to seeing a transformation of traditional Korean food to fusion France-Korean food. Moreover, if I see that my Korean friends in Korea and French people have the same interests about Korean or French culture, I can connect them to be Pen pals or send E-mails. I know some friends that are really interested in French culture such as language, etiquette, and architecture. France people love Korean culture as well.

Papua New Guinea has an 80% illiteracy rate. An 80% unemployment rate and the average education standard is year 4. If we can represent through projects in the key centres of Madang, Alotau, Rabaul (kokopo) and Lae we will be able to work with local schools to expand their program and help increase basic literacy. AUS-AID and the United Nations have determined that it is imperative to increase the literacy rate in Papua New Guinea to a minimum of 45% by 2020 to enable the country to begin to lift from its self imposed poverty. By helping in our own way to achieve this, we are offering an extremely positive impact on the local Papua New Guinea environment.

Bringing art education and supplies to under privileged kids is an opportunity to give them a voice; showing their art in a public space would give them a megaphone. Traveling an exhibit of works from different communities would bring about awareness for the participants and patrons, but also perhaps a deeper sense of unity and hope through the art show's theme. To bring the art by the community to the community will benefit all. The fundraising aspect would most likely be minimal, but it could be empowering for a child to know that he gave back to the organization that is helping him or her. The ultimate goal would be to open doors for the individuals in empowerment and creativity, and to bridge gaps between social groups.

Through our clinic option these women will be able to give birth in a very clean place stocked with medical equipment and medications in case of emergency. There will also be trained staff and personnel to help with the birthing process.
