Project Description

The unemployment rate in Nigeria has been increasing steadily since the economic crisis in 2014. Increasing the relevant employability skills of young women is critical to tackling these high unemployment rates, particularly among graduates. WONDER FOUNDATION works with two local partners to provide young women with scholarships that fund technical and professional training in hospitality and culinary disciplines. As COVID-19 revolutionises learning, our local partners have continued to deliver education online and are working to ensure all their students have access to technology and data.

More about this project

Wavecrest College of Hospitality (Lagos) and Lantana College of Hospitality (Enugu) are vocational institutions that teach technical and professional skills to young women, many of whom are from less privileged backgrounds. We offer quality training to young women through a variety of short courses and HND programmes in hospitality and culinary disciplines. We also provide access to industry placements in Lagos’ best hotels to enhance the employment prospects of our graduates. Our research indicates that our students will double their family income through their first job, leading to real and transformative change. Furthermore, by combining our current training with an increased mentoring programme and access to an advisory board with knowledge and connections across the industry, we are preparing women to be more resilient to market change. This is particularly important as the future of the hospitality industry becomes increasingly unstable.

Project Description

The project provides digital skills training to residents of Aboriginal communities. These skill sets are crucial in today's society, and people with those skills are often called upon to help others with online and digital tasks. This project mixes learning with fun and meets the interests of children, young people and adults. Skills range from music making and multi-media through to essential computer-based skills like setting up email access and internet banking. Those skills stay in the community and are then passed on to others creating a ripple effect.

More About This Project

This project is hugely popular, mainly among younger people in remote Aboriginal communities. People with specific digital skills and good connections with Aboriginal people deliver the training in community. Computers and equipment are provided by DotCom Mob, and some of the skills training is delivered through partnering with local community arts and media organisations such as Papunya Tjupi Arts in Papunya, and PAW Media in the Western desert region of the NT. There has been an explosion of musical, artistic and other cultural products from young people in remote Aboriginal communities with the help of the Computer Rooms and Geeks in Residence projects.

Project Description

Rescue a meal, which would otherwise be thrown away, for disadvantaged communities around the United States. In the US, an estimated 40% of food produced is wasted while 1 in 7 people are food insecure. During the pandemic those number worsened, and 54 million Americans were experienced food insecurity. Rescuing Leftover Cuisine gets volunteers to rescue meals that would otherwise go to waste from restaurants and other food businesses and deliver it to the hungry at homeless shelters, food pantries, and soup kitchens.

More About This Project

The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines food insecurity as a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. Americans waste 33 million tons of food every year while 1 in 7 people remain food insecure. Rescuing Leftover Cuisine fills the gap between food insecurity and food waste by rescuing excess food that would otherwise end up in landfills from food businesses and corporations and instead donate it to feed the hungry population at homeless shelters, food pantries, and soup kitchens. Rescue a meal with RLC by supporting us to purchase food packaging materials and transporting equipment including aluminium trays and carts for Food Rescues.

Project Description

Provide a nourishing meal for a vulnerable child in Cambodia for a day at school. Prevent a child from dropping out of school simply because of an inability to finance meals. Give nutrition to an underprivileged child and enable him or her to be energetic and ready for lessons!

More About This Project

As of 2020, 79 children under the Child Protection Program receive a free lunch on school days. The lunch generally comprises of rice, a bowl of soup and a sizeable portion of meat/fish/tofu and vegetables. The meals are distributed at the campus canteen to selected Phare Ponleu Selpak students who were evaluated and identified to be most vulnerable.

Project Description

Give access to safe water for a Tanzanian child at a local school by providing a ceramic water filter for a day. Provide local employment at the same time as each ceramic Tembo pot filter is locally manufactured. Each unit provides safe and effective water filtration to a bottled water quality. The ceramic water filters are long-lasting with an expected lifespan of 3 years and have been tested in the laboratory to remove more than 99.8% of bacteria. Protect the health of a child by eliminating the incidence of waterborne diseases.

More About This Project

Over the 2017-2020 period, MSABI has selected a total of 51 schools in which to hold WASH education sessions. The schools have on average 650 primary school students per school and a total of 31850 students will benefit from this program. MSABI aims to provide 5 filters to each school from the B1G1 contribution to each school and further discounts are available for purchase of the filters by the school and student body.

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.

Unlike other hospitals, the majority of our funding comes from individual contributions. And thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.

Every December, we give at least 1% of that year's total revenue to St. Jude.
