Oxfam Charity - Who Funds Oxfam?

Hello Dear, Good day! Well, Oxfam International is a confederation of 14 organisations working with over 3,000 partners in around 100 countries to find lasting solutions to poverty and injustice. The Oxfam International Secretariat leads, facilitates, and supports collaboration between the Oxfam affiliates to increase Oxfam International's impact on poverty and injustice through advocacy campaigns, development programmes and emergency response. Oxfam was originally founded in Oxford in 1942 as the Oxford Committee for Famine Relief by a group of Quakers, social activists, and Oxford academics; this is now Oxfam Great Britain, still based in Oxford, UK. It was one of several local committees formed in support of the National Famine Relief Committee. Their mission was to persuade the British government to allow food relief through the Allied blockade for the starving citizens of Axis-occupied Greece. The first overseas Oxfam was founded in Canada in 1963. The committee changed its name to its telegraph address, OXFAM, in 1965. As for who funds Oxfam; I believe the following will give you a better idea: Oxfam has a number of successful fundraising channels in addition to its shops. Over half a million people in the UK make a regular financial contribution towards its work, and vital funds are received from gifts left to the organisation in people's wills. Many London Marathon competitors run to raise money for Oxfam, and Oxfam also receives funds in return for providing and organising volunteer stewards at festivals such as Glastonbury. In conjunction with the Gurkha Welfare Trust, Oxfam also runs several Trailwalker events in Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Japan. In August 2009, it was announced that Arctic Monkeys would release a 7-inch vinyl version of their new single "Crying Lightning" exclusively through Oxfam shops, with proceeds going to the charity. Recently Oxfam India is emerging as a successful fundraising unit, it is mainly with the help of always motivated team and the Resource Mobilization Heads. Hope you get a brief idea on Oxfam and its 'Fundings' from the above text. Hope I have been able to help you.

1. how can i raise money for a charity?

I think this is a great idea and applaud you for taking action to help others! Magnets are great and you could charge enough that the price covers the cost of the materials and the rest you give to charity. Bookmarks are wonderful and in addition to selling them at your school, you could ask bookstores that are independently owned if they will sell them on your behalf with all proceeds going to charity. The stores independently owned are better to approach, since the large chains usually have policies against this or a lot of red tape to get through. You will need to be specific about what charity and what work they do (where, with whom, how, etc.). Talk to the charity you select to help as they may be willing to sell your items at their fundraisers and/or on their website as well. All the best to you - keep up the fantastic work!

2. Helping a charity! Please help!?

Try talking with your neighbors and friends about it. They might help out a bit. Check if your parents do not have other friends that might be interested in buying the cards. Try going to kindergartens, elementary schools, small kids might seem nice to get their mum, gradma a gift. Try a bit of advertising, some posters ...

3. Building a WebGIS with search functionality for a charity

It's $100/yr subscription, but ArcGIS for Home Use gives you the Advanced license version of Arc with most extensions, and is licensed to be ok to use for non-profit, volunteer work. Nothing commercial though

4. Gay charity?

I quick search found the below information. If you give to a non profit and they do not give you enough information then ask for more if they still do not , then do not donate, but the below info sounds good to me. I think there are many GLBT non-profit orgs that can benefit from something like this and I wish there was one like it near me. Also being a non-profit, I believe their financials are public record. I do not see anything wrong with this at all unless only a small percentage goes to grants and awards. And it seems like they have given out a lot of money. How is this any different than the cancer society or a church or goodwill, except the grants and awards are made to help the GLBT community? : Diversity Thrift Shop is the principal fund-raising organization of the Richmond Gay Community Foundation in Richmond, Virigina. The shop is located at 1407 Sherwood Avenue, Richmond, Virginia. Donations are accepted during regular shop hours or by calling ahead at 804-353-8890. The manager of Diversity Thrift is Jon Klein. The Richmond Gay Community Foundation (RGCF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation whose mission is to improve the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people through funding and education. Grants are awarded twice a year. RGCF opened Diversity Thrift on August 5, 2000. In its first 9 months of operation, RGCF awarded nearly $100,000 in grants to organizations benefiting the LGBT community. Grant application deadlines are April 30 and October 31 each year. Announcements of grants and awards are made within 45 days of the application deadlines. A large display located at the front of Diversity Thrift informs patrons of the distribution of the grants and donations. The display is on a rainbow background, which is both a Diversity Thrift logo and a symbol of the gay community. Funds are normally restricted to organizations based in Central Virginia. Exceptions are sometimes made. A grant was made to fund the Jim Ricketson Memorial Library and the Roanoke 7 following the Backstreet Bar shooting in Roanoke in 2001. Diversity Thrift was founded by Jon Klein, MSW. Jon is also the founder and former executive director of both the Richmond Organization for Sexual Minority Youth (ROSMY) and the Richmond Street Outreach Project. Community Grants and Awards 2003 Spring Grants Equality Virginia Education Fund was awarded $9,500 to create an "Online Action Center." This is an "online interactive grassroots networking and education tool that will dramatically change and improve the ability of EV and its members to effectively lobby Virginia legislators." Fan Free Clinic received $5,000 to partially fund the salary and benefits of a HIV/AIDS Case Manager. Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation was given $5,000 for a Lesbian Outreach Project to educate the Richmond area lesbian community about lesbian health issues, especially breast cancer. GLSEN-Richmond, a local chapter of the National Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network, received $4,600 to support Gay/Straight Alliances in area schools. Richmond Triangle Players was awarded $3,500 for capital improvements and renovations to its theatre space. Transformation Retreats, which provides "a safe and hospitable place where individuals living with HIV/AIDS may gather for support, education and community," received $2,400. From this 6-month cycle, Diversity Thrift awarded $30,000 in grant money to organizations providing programs and services to benefit the LGBT community, bringing the total grant money awarded since August, 2000 to $248,608. Building Fund From profits generated over the past six months (11/1/02 - 4/30/03), Diversity Thrift designated $68,326 as seed money for a LGBT community center, bringing the total in this building fund to $98,326. 2003 Spring Awards Over the past six months, $18,213 in awards were given, raising the total amount of donations given since August, 2000 to $50,109.

The Housewares Charity Foundations Annual Housewares Cares Gala
The founder and CEO of direct-to-consumer technology and home goods retailer Tristar Products, Keith Mirchandani spearheads the sale of premium brand merchandise in more than 100 countries. To augment his professional activities, Keith Mirchandani supports the Housewares Charity Foundation.Uniting the home goods and housewares industry under a common philanthropic mission, the Housewares Charity Foundation (HCF) raises funds each year for a roster of affiliated charities. Since its inaugural event in 1998, the HCF Housewares Cares Gala has been a key fundraising initiative for the organization.Occurring on Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois, the 2019 Housewares Cares Gala raised approximately $1.8 million for HCF legacy charity the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and 2019 gala partner the James Beard Foundation. Like past Housewares Cares events, it also honored several home goods and housewares professionals for their outstanding leadership and humanitarian accomplishments.Unfortunately, the 2020 Housewares Cares Gala, scheduled for March 16, did not occur as planned due to the COVID-19 viral outbreak. The spirit of the event lived on, however, as the HCF released statements on its official website to encourage online donations.I want to start a charity organization?You probably have to start by incorporating with your state and then obtaining 501 (c) 3 designation as a charityWhy hasnt anyone done a Charity BarCode Book?Your idea seems well-intended, and I like your thoughts about helping good causes to get more public notice. However, I am unclear about how you envision this working. Are you talking about cash donations like the spare change you mentioned, or are you talking about electronic contributions using the same debit and credit cards we use as we are paying for our purchases at the store? You made comments about an internet donation site, such as AmeriCorps, and how the electronic system could be unsafe: "I do not like donating online because im iffy about entering any sort of personal information anywhere!" If we use our debit cards and credit cards to contribute to charity while making purchases at stores, would not we face the same dangers of fraud and identity theft? I would like to hear more about the system you had in mind. You have my interest! Please tell more.What does the Bible say about hope?The Bible says much about HOPE.

Anyone Know of a Charity That WILL Accept Highlighted Hair?
yeah. go to locksoflove.org. they dont accept bleached hair, which it sounds like your isnt, so click on donate/volunteer, then donate hair, then read and at the bottom of the page click on the form and print it out, fill it out, and once you get your hair cut (make them keep it in a pony tail) put it in a plastic bag of some sort and mail it to them. they will send you a thank you a couple weeks later. If theres not that much highlights, then maby you could have that half cut off and the rest donated. good luck.1. What should I donate to charity instead of money?Volunteering your time can make a big impact if you want to help charities. It's a way to give back to your community and support it how you can-not all donations need to be monetary2. Charity pies in her face.?Have you been asked to do this?3. How do I start an account online for charity?You need to get her signed up for Medicaid to pay for all of her medical expenses. Then call the hospital to see if they have financial assitance to help pay for people's medical expense. Stop trying to do this yourself. There is help out there. Research your options. Also, medicaid in some states will even pay for you to drive to doctors appointments if they are far away.4. Need help thinking of ways to raise money for my charity?First you need to register your Charity with the IRS before you start raising money5. Why do we give to charity?I can only answer for myself. I would like someone to help me if I would find myself starving or homeless. So I would do for others what I desire for myself6. Watchtower: Registered in England as a charity!?Well at least JWs were honest on this one. As RICK G says: "A Charity does not have to give MONEY to anyone" And they surely do not . All of the money received by the Watchtower is funneled to printing more and more literature. The reason why the WT was sued in France was exactly because of this - the fac that although they are registered as a chartify organization and enjoy those benefits, they contribute nothing in the way of charitable work. This "disaster relief" that JWs keep bring up, because in reality there is the only thing that resembles a charitable work, is a joke. Everytbody knows that this is also a form of revenue. Think about this: Why is it that the bulk of this disaster relief is always the rebuilding of homes? Ever wondered? If you look at other charitable organizations, they usually start by providing food, clothes, medication, but the Watchtower concentrates all efforts on rebuilding homes. WHY? The fact is that the WT rebuilds homes of brothers and then collects the insurance money for those brothers. So the Watchtower pays for building materials, gets free labor to build it, and then collects the insurance money which is always more. Just another way to make money. You know very well that this is not true. But if you have any evidence that first century christians used other literature other than the holy scriptures, present it then.. You are also missing the point. The issue is not if the Watchtower won or lost the court case in France. The point is that the reason why this came about, is because the government of France recognizes that the status of Charity Organization does not apply to the Watchtower, because the Org performs no service benefitting the community at large. I also believe that the WT should not pay taxes if other religions do not , but the point is, other religions perform many charitable works, while the Watchtower only spends funds on itself. What i mean by this is that the Watchtower only spends money on something for which it will have a financial return eg. literature, disaster construction relief, etc , etc.7. How does a charity organization deal with Community Breakdown? (religiously)?Climate change and the associated disasters leave no choice numerous people, forcing them to leave their homes and even their countries. Disasters often strike the poorest, and all this is a real challenge for charity organizations. When it comes to climate change, denial often creates disputes. American writer Carrie Norgaard received many threatening e-mails after she published the book "Living in Denial: Climate Change, Emotions, and Everyday Life". Carrie does not deal with those few who deny that people cause climate changes. Rather, what she is interested in is why the majority of people in industrial countries, although they do not dispute the scientific findings about climate change, still do not do anything in their everyday life to contribute through local community service to the fight against it, even though their contributions would be very important.
Boy Who Hasn't Had a Haircut Since He Was Four Donates Mane to Charity
A schoolboy that has grown an impressive head of hair to donate to charity is to set to give his mane the chop. Bertie Pilkington, a 12-year-old from Newbury, Berkshire, is to have only the second haircut of his life in aid of the Little Princess Trust. Bertie, a pupil at Park House School, Newbury, has not had his hair trimmed since he was four and it's now down to his waist, making him look like a young rock star. On May 13th, he will have it cut at a local salon, and the lock will be donated to the charity which converts hair into wigs for children who have lost theirs, including through cancer treatment. He plans to donate his curls to the charity which converts hair into wigs for children who have lost theirs, including through cancer treatment. The trim will take place at Headroom salon in Inches Yard, Newbury. Bertie's mother Jo Munting said 'He had it trimmed when he was four, when he went to school. He's been growing it ever since. 'He's getting it cut and donating his hair to the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children. He's hoping to raise money for them as well.' Bertie said 'Ever since I was old enough to have my hair cut, I've never really had it cut. 'There was this My Life programme on CBBC and this girl had a necklace with beads on of all the things she had to go to hospital for. 'There was one with a head and it said "a head, with hair" and there was another one next to it with a head without hair. 'And she talked about going through cancer and not being able to have hair. 'It's just about giving back, because of how lucky you are to not have cancer.' A JustGiving page has been set up by Bertie, with an initial fund-raising target of £550, and it's already got pledges of £350. All proceeds will be donated to the Little Princess Trust. The charity provides wigs made of real hair, free of charge, to children and young people up to age 24, who've lost theirs. Created in 2006, the Trust works with trusted salons to approve and fit the wigs, making sure they are as close to the child's natural hair colour as possible. Made of real hair, the wigs can be styled and cut to fit the person's style of choice.Am i good at basketball for my age? Improvement?You always need improvement. That's what all the great players always sayWhat is the drinking age is Japan?20 years old. Though I do not get it. Beer, wine, whiskey and sake are all available from vending machines. And although I can not speak to all bars, I've been in quite a few and never EVER saw anyone coming in get cardedWas it a mistake for Daniel Craig to do a fifth James Bond film given his recent injury and age?No, I think the media made the injury and his age an item because he is supposedly leaving the franchise now. They love drama, After all, he is only 51, and as my doctor says - "70 is the new 50", so he is more like a 31 year oldAt what age did Krishna leave Radha?LEAVE!!!??Srimati RadhaRani never left Krsna nor did Krsna leave Srimati Radharani!!!Both are one!!! How can one leave oneself?!!!!Jai Radhe Shyam!!I want to know how many children under the age of five where the correct clothing size?My 18 month old wears 2t pants and 3t tops, usually. All brands are different. My 3 1/2 yr old wears size 5 pants and size 6 top in the little girls section, not the toddler section. And this also varies by brand Edit-and they are both girls if it mattersWhat is a good age for McDonald's?I am the wrong person to answer this question! My son's 1st outing (at three weeks old) was to McDonald's! Seriously, there's nothing wrong with introducing your little one to McDonald's early. It's a fun thing for a kid. Just do not overdo it, and you will both be fine!
What Is Your Favorite Charity, and How Does It Relate to Your Belief?
I do not donate much money... I usually donate my clothes or my time1. Correct way to word wedding invite so that gifts will go to charity?Charitable donations are suggested in an obituary, not a wedding invitation. At the bottom of your invitation simply state "No gifts accepted". At the reception, do have a table handy with a note "All gifts will be given to charity". Then, you decide which charity you wish to donate your gifts to.2. Doing a charity quiz - and if I win it will all go to the charity(honest!). - Answers are UK towns or cities.?12. Johnny BRISTOL sang "Hang on in there baby" 18. Winson Churchill (US novelist not UK stateman) wrote Coniston in 1906 then Mr CREWE's Career in 1908. 27. FILEY 49. SKEGNESS (?) 52.

'WINCHESTER Cathedral' a hit for the New Vaudeville Band3. Android Application for the charity organization to update their activities ?From your description, this is what it looks like to me. Develop an Android App which: 1. Provides a form for data input 2. After user enters data in the form, submits it to a database. Later, user might ask you to display the data from the database in the same app or he might already have(or need) a website or another application to display the data from the database.4. Is NYCCO a registered charity or is this a scam?NOBODY will ever offer you a position WITHOUT an interview. You do not get job offers online, especially for something like a charity if they are not registered then you know this is a scam. If they do not have an actual office that you've been to for an interview, it's a scam I can guarantee this will turn out to be a money laundering scam - they will send you a counterfeit cheque, ask you to deposit it, keep a % for yourself,then wire the balance to their 'orphanage' or 'charity' overseas through Western Union Do not fill out any application - these are normally just scams to get you to reveal enough information for the scammers to commit identity theft The sad thing is, the real Yoko Ortiz is probably a former victim of these scammers who has no idea her name is being used to scam others. That's how these scammers work - they use the name of previous scam victims for their new scams5. What to wear to a charity walk when it could be cold out?For the charity event, work the cold and cute. I am talking cute warm hat with knit flowers, matching coloured gloves, chandelier earrings, cute but warm jacket, scarf, and a leg-hugging skirt (short or knee length) with warm tights! The second outfit works, but maybe a blouse in the place of the polo? But the polo would work too :D6. Why does the U.S. help charity cases?Goodbye, then. Good luck finding a place to live that never helps anyone7. How would you start a charity?You first need a business plan, in writing: * What services will this nonprofit provide? * What statistics and testimonials do you have that prove this organization is needed? * Will the organization charge for these services? If so, how much? * What will these services achieve? How will you prove those achievements? * How much will providing these services costs -- rental space, computer, registration as a nonprofit with the federal and state, paying staff or consultants, equipment, etc.? * How will the organization account for donations, income earned and expenses? * What will be done to protect your clients, volunteers, staff members and others from exploitation of any kind? * What will you do to ensure your organization is free from corruption and mismanagement, beyond just promises and assurances? After you have written this business plan, you recruit a board of directors -- people over 18 who are willing to be fiscally and legally responsible for your organization, willing to provide some of the start up costs (even a token amount), and willing to put their reputations on the line to say this organization should exist. Then you file your official paperwork with the correct government body. Also, open a bank account in the name of your nonprofit business. If it all sounds like too much, then why not find an existing organization that assists people in need and volunteer for them?
A Different Kind of Charity; Empowering Orphanages to Fight Malnutrition in the FCT
Orphanages are not uncommon in Nigeria and across different parts of the globe. The United Nations Convention on the rights of the child makes it clear that a child has the right to care and protection if they are adopted or in foster care. It also stipulates that a child has the right to special care and help if they cannot live with their parents. This makes orphanages a source of refuge for many children orphaned or made homeless for a variety of reasons.Due to budgetary constraints, providing food for children in orphanages is largely dependent on freewill donations from individuals and organisations, especially during festive periods. About 90% of all the food our children consume is provided by charitable gifts, says Mr Charles Ikezemuoka, who runs the Divine Wounds of Jesus Orphanage Home and Rehabilitation Centre (DWOJOHRC) located along Arab Road in Kubwa, one of the outskirt towns of the Federal Capital Territory. His orphanage houses over 130 children, including those orphaned and displaced by the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East of Nigeria. In January 2019, the Divine Wounds of Jesus Orphanage Home and Rehabilitation Centre was the recipient of a different kind of charity. Young leaders from the Mandela Washington Fellowship Alumni Association paid them a visit, and although they came bearing the usual gifts, they also taught Charles and his caregivers how to prepare nutritious foods for their children with everyday food items they usually take for granted.Malnutrition: An Elusive ProblemThe impact of good nutrition goes beyond the individual as it significantly rubs off on the economic fortunes of a nation. On the contrary, malnutrition which in this case is undernutrition is a widespread problem, affecting people of all ages, especially women and children. It has remained a daunting issue for the global health and development communities and in Nigeria, the numbers are not very encouraging. While there are various unverified reports about the data for stunting in Nigerias children, key findings from the National Demographic and Health Survey 2013 (NDHS 2013) estimate that 37% of children under age five are stunted, 18% wasted and 29% underweight. Stunting refers to impaired growth and development in children as a result of poor nutrition while wasting, also referred to as low weight-for-height or thinness usually indicates a recent and severe process of weight loss, which is often associated with acute starvation. Adequate nutrition is essential for a childs optimal physical, mental, and cognitive growth, health, and development, especially during the period from conception to age two also known as the first 1000 days. Malnutrition is not only a function of not eating enough to nourish the body, but also ensuring that food consumed contains enough of both micro and macro nutrients in appropriate amounts to help the body perform optimally. It takes intentional effort to tackle and prevent malnutrition because a child may be eating a lot of food, yet still be in danger because the food has little to no nutritional value. This makes the problem elusive on inception and difficult to treat until it begins to manifest.Recognising the importance of proper nutrition, both local and global investments have been made to tackle the menace of malnutrition. Global initiatives like the World Food Programme are helping to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Two, Zero Hunger by 2030 by ensuring that over 90 million people around the world have access to food. They also deliver food assistance in emergencies and work with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience. In 2017 the World Bank developed an investment framework for nutrition aimed at showing the investment needs for reaching the global targets for stunting, anaemia, breastfeeding and wasting. The benefit-cost analyses showed that every $1 invested to treat stunting returns $11, while $4 is the return for the same amount invested to treat wasting.In Nigeria, efforts to teach community members to use local food sources to provide high nutrient and cost effective feeding for their children proved to be extremely effective in Kano State. Other initiatives include the Federal Governments homegrown school feeding program, referred to as Africas largest national school feeding programme, and the National Policy on Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) which took cognizance of motherless/adopted infants and young children. Overtime, these efforts possibly led to the improvement of nutritional status of children in Nigeria between 2008 and 2013 as shown in the last NDHS as the proportion of children who are stunted declined from 41% in 2008 to 37% in 2013.However, there hasnt been substantial progress since then, especially in North East Nigeria where there have been incessant security challenges. The 2018 National Nutrition and Health Survey showed that the prevalence of stunting in Nigeria was 32% and the burden has remained above 30% since 2014, with many states in the North West and North East recording prevalence above 40%.A Simple SolutionThe visit to DWJOHRC orphanage was part of a national initiative by the Alumni Association aimed at not only providing food items for orphanages, but educating their care givers on low budget balanced diets. It was called Project Nourish and was successfully implemented across four states Gombe, Enugu, Lagos, Bayelsa and the Federal Capital Territory, in January 2019.In Abuja, the team of fellows from four different cohorts arrived dressed in yellow aprons worn over white T-shirts. They came ready to join the caregivers in the kitchen to show them how to prepare low budget nutritious meals for the children. After a tour of the place and handing over the relief and food items, the caregivers gathered in a room used as a refectory to learn the basics of proper nutrition in a session delivered by Janet Gbam, a Fellow of the 2017 cohort. The presentation was prepared by Dr. Anita Benson, a medic member of the team and used in all the states where the project was carried out. She taught the caregivers low budget Nigerian foods that are rich in protein, carbs, fats & oil, vitamins and minerals. Some of the foods listed includes millet, wheat flour, oats, walnut, potatoes, and vegetables. There was also a section on the recommended daily intake of water & the caloric requirements of children based on their age. The presentation listed some nutritious Nigerian food options that cost about N300 per meal per child. One is a meal they fondly call concoction rice made from rice, palm oil, fish/crayfish, onions and pepper. The caregivers were shown how to make fortified pap for children at risk of malnutrition using guinea corn, milk, blended crayfish, groundnut, palm oil and sugar. Another fellow, Lawrenta Igoh, gave a practical demonstration of how to prepare Tom Brown, a highly nutritious alternative to some canned cereals for the infants using combination of soya beans, groundnut and crayfish. Her session stirred interest among the caregivers as they asked questions on the processes, cost, and how to preserve the food.While this was going on, another group, a mix of caregivers and fellows, was busy in the kitchen preparing lunch for the kids. The fellows showed the caregivers and other grown up girls in the orphanage who sometimes help with the chores how to make a more nutritious meal of moi moi, a popular Nigerian delicacy made from ground-bean paste. The meal was fortified with proteins sourced from fish and eggs.Sustaining the gains of Project NourishEven though the project appears simple, it benefited the children and caregivers in Bayelsa state, says Virture Oboro, who led the project in the State. It helped the caregivers understand the essence of planning healthy meals for not just the kids but for themselves, particularly as some of the care givers were older and equally needed to improve their dietary and feeding habits. She also said that the impact of the knowledge gained was more than the food items they distributed and hoped that the orphanages that have benefited from this project continue to implement all the lessons learned. The initiative was even more important for Ikezemuoka, who says knowledge from the training has helped them minimise cost while also providing the children with nutritious meals. This is because, with the same amount they spend daily on a meal (approximately N25,000) they can provide more nutritious food.Lamide Johnson, president of the association said the motivation to embark on the project was fuelled by the zeal to tackle a social problem by addressing the root cause. He said their objective is simply to show that, while its important to give fish to someone, it is much better and sustainable to teach them how to fish.However, it will take a lot more than goodwill to sustain the project. As a one-off project, there wasnt a plan in place to check adherence of care givers overtime and determine long-term impact on the children. While some of the meals are highly nutritious, like adding eggs and fish to the moi moi are not very cheap and would require significant investment to sustain.The costed National Strategic Plan of Action for Nutrition (20142019) recognises that attaining global development goals and meaningful economic progress will not happen without an urgent improvement in nutrition. It also emphasised the need to scale up nutrition interventions that have proven to be cost-effective, feasible and with high impact.This therefore presents these limitations as opportunities to build on the gains of the project by rethinking charity, especially for orphanage homes. Individuals and organisations can change their giving strategies by sponsoring the delivery of farm produce to these orphanages. This will enable them to have access to cheaper options of local and nutritious food contents. There are orphanage homes that have gardens, poultries and fish farms. These can be supported, and capacities of caregivers built to operate theirs.While Ready to Use Therapeutic Foods (RUTFs) are useful especially in the management of children with severe acute malnutrition (SAM) in conflict zones, there should be efforts to prevent malnutrition by educating caregivers to leverage on locally available and affordable food sources with high nutritional content.·RELATED QUESTIONIntersection of two tkz-fct funktionsNo there is nothing specific in tkz-fct.

Families of arrested dissidents often suffered repercussions such as the loss of jobs and opportunities to study. During his time in labor camps, Ginzburg managed to coordinate relatives and friends to help other inmates and their families. This included support such as donating household goods for those in exile, helping relatives who faced expulsion from work, or offering places to stay in Moscow for wives who journeyed to visit their husbands in remote Siberian camps.After his release in 1972, Ginzburg consulted with Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn on how to continue this informal support. Solzhenitsyn offered a quarter of his Nobel Prize award for the cause. After Solzhenitsyn was expelled from the USSR in 1974 following the publication of The Gulag Archipelago, he set up a fund in Switzerland, donating all present and future international royalties for the book to it. The funds were from then on brought into the USSR and distributed through a network of volunteers.------Activities of charityA first goal of the fund was to help gulag inmates and their families to survive. For this, groups of people, unknown to one another, collected information on the existence and whereabouts of political prisoners across the Soviet Union and distributed funds and other material support to them and their families. Other charitable organizations, such as Christian Orthodox organizations that collected clothing and other items, passed those donations onto the Aid Fund for redistribution. The Aid Fund also contributed funds for the support of political prisoners who were sent to psychiatric imprisonment. It paid for the travel expenses of those who traveled to distant trials to support the political dissenters.:189 A second goal of the fund was the support of cultural initiatives, such as a series of memoirs of emigrants.The administrators of the fund ensured that the money was sent legally to banks in Moscow; after the state had taken one third in tax, what remained was distributed in roubles. When the authorities found out about the fund, the receiving of the money was blocked. Instead, donations were sent to friends and sympathisers. The KGB then attempted to halt its distribution by telling the families of political prisoners that, if money were accepted, their loved ones would endure even worse conditions in the camps.According to Solzhenitsyn's wife Natalya, the fund counted up to 120 volunteers.------Scottish Waterways Trust of charityThe Scottish Waterways Trust was an independent registered charity, established as part of The Waterways Trust in 2000. In 2012 The Waterways Trust merged its operations in England and Wales with the Canal & River Trust, and the organisation in Scotland became an independent charity.In the face of significant financial challenges, the Scottish Waterways Trust ceased to operate in 2019, issuing the following statement:"Since 2000, we have been connecting people with the heritage, wildlife and green open spaces of our canals and inspiring people to get active, improve their health and mental wellbeing, employment prospects and community life. To secure the future of our innovative canal-based projects and the positive impact our work has on local communities, we are pleased to say that, from 1st May 2019, our canal college and Canal Heritage activities will be taken forward by environmental charity, Keep Scotland Beautiful."------ING New England Golf Classic of charityThe ING New England Golf Classic was an annual golf tournament for professional women golfers on the Futures Tour, the LPGA Tour's developmental tour.

The main recipient countries are Tanzania, Uganda, Ghana, Zambia, Sierra Leone and Malawi.Tools for Self Reliance was founded in 1980 and is based in Netley Marsh, Hampshire, and is a registered charity. Its patrons includeArchbishop Desmond Tutu.Tools for Self Reliance was a member of the anti-poverty campaign Make Poverty History in2005. The Chief Executive Officer of Tools for Self Reliance is Sarah Ingleby.------Early history of charityThe original values behind the establishment of Tools for Self Reliance were outlined in a book, Questioning Development by Glyn Roberts. This argued that Northern volunteer-sending organisations should analyse "underdevelopment" in terms of power, and should act in solidarity with manual workers in the Third World. In November 1978, Roberts and other returned volunteers joined with students in Portsmouth in house-to-house collections of unwanted tools. In June 1979, a first consignment of 1,400 refurbished tools went (with shipment paid for by UNESCO's Youth Division) to SIDO, the Small Industries Development Organisation in Tanzania. Tanzania was selected because of its development philosophy and policies, outlined most notably in the Arusha Declaration (1967) by President Julius Nyerere. Many who got involved with Tools for Self Reliance found the principles inspiring. (One of these pioneers was Eddie Grimble who, thirty-four years later, is still actively involved!)The tools idea took off very rapidly, with collecting and refurbishing groups forming in England, Wales and Scotland, and soon an influx of tools threatened to overwhelm the tiny volunteer administration based in Gosport. Much of 1979 and 1980 was spent trying to form an efficient yet democratic organisational structure for the NGO, and also seeking premises large enough to cope with the storage, refurbishment and shipping of tools. In 1980, Tools for Self Reliance was registered as a non-profit company and a year later, with support from Peter Gardner and the Minstead Lodge community, it raised a loan to buy a dilapidated property at Netley Marsh, near Southampton. It gained charitable status in 1982.Throughout much of the 1980s Tools for Self Reliance struggled to survive, with 60-70 volunteer groups across the country putting in thousands of hours of practical and administrative work. Schools, universities, Rotarians and churches backed them up with tool collections, transport and money. Funds were always limited, though the situation occasionally improved thanks to a successful BBC Week's Good Cause appeal by Bishop Trevor Huddleston (1983), and support from Quaker and other foundations.By the late 1980s and early 1990s most of these problems had diminished and the organisation was providing some 40-50,000 tools a year to seven countries in Africa and Central America. Tools for Self Reliance built up long-term partnerships with indigenous organisations as they, in turn, gave training and support to the young and unemployed, to women's groups, to disabled people and refugees. Another key area was the promotion of village (blacksmith) tool production and repair, and, through its overseas partners, Tools for Self Reliance sponsored tool-making competitions, conferences and exhibitions, at the district, national and international level.Tools for Self Reliance always aimed to be more than a vehicle for technical assistance by insisting that simply providing tools and training will not solve worldwide poverty, which has deeper roots in the unfair distribution of power between and within nations.By the mid 1990s, similar organisations had formed in Europe, Australia and Japan, and Tools for Self Reliance was taking its message to international conferences such as the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (Geneva, 1990) and the World Summit for Social Development in Copenhagen (1995).
Do You Think Celebrities Acts of Charity Are Genuine Or They Are for Other Reasons?
I think most of their acts are for publicity and to make them feel better about themselves1. Why do people donate rubbish to charity shops?I think that people do not want things to go to waste. On the plus side look at all the good stuff that is donated to goodwill, I go shopping there all the time2. should i donate to a charity who?Uh, let's back this train of thought up to the station, OK? If people can not afford food, clothing, and toys for their children, odds are good that they may not have a computer or even the electricity to run a computer. Ditto a portable CD player which probably would cost them half a year's wages even if they had a place to buy one. In that case, the Bible on CD is a small silver Frisbee.3. should i get my head shaved at school for charity?I would say if you do you can say that it was for a good cause and that you helped people that are going through tough times, but on the other hand i also love my hair and do not like to cut it but i guess its good so i would say yes :)4. Anyone had submuscular breast augmentation (implants) ?Please do not get breast implants, they will not improve your quality oof life in any way, you may think that they will improve your confidence, but actually confidence is psychological and unless you change your mindset you will not feel any more confident. Breast impolants always look fake and are so obvious, people will almost always take you for a stupid, ignorant bimbo who is only concerned about her looks. Find a better way to spend the money, you are so lucky in your life that you can even consider getting breast implants, give some of the money to charity, invest the money, spend it on someone you care about. Read the book 'uglies' and the book 'pretties' and also 'specials'. I am sure that this will put you off surgery. And finally, the most beautiful women in the world are natural, and people who get cosmetic surgery look like blow up dolls.5. Raising money for charity: any ideas?u can organize a talent show and earn people who register. u can do a bikini car wash too.6. How to promote a charity event?You can promote the charity even by using facebook in an innovative and smart ways. Step 1 - Create your event on Facebook Step 2 - Promote your event through a sponsored story, not an ad Step 3 - Invite People to Your Event Step 4 - Start (and keep) The Conversation Going in Your Event Invite Step 5 - Cross Promote and Give Something Away Step 6 - Create Urgency Step 7 - Important Final Words Also, every few nights go around to Facebook pages that your target demographic may like and comment on their posts (while using Facebook as your fan page). Just join in conversations, speaking naturally. Liking individual comments is always great too. People are curious creatures, they want to check who is talking to them or liking what they have to say. They may check out your page and join your event. Free word of mouth at it's best!7. Do liberal Christians substitute government coercion for benevolence and temptation for charity?I fail to see how any Christian could be of the view that having a portion of their income automatically going to help those in need is a bad thing. There is nothing stopping you giving more if you are able. You seem opposed to taxation in general - of course if you abolished how would you fund such trivial things as infrastructure? (i.e. roads, ports, schools, etc.) You will no doubt say all of these things would be accomplished through private enterprise - which is possible - however at what cost? What benefit would be gained by a private company building roads - unless of course all roads were made tollways... do you see the problem? You can remove government and replace it with private enterprise - but by doing so you remove power from the entity that is set up solely to benefit the public, and replace it with those who are only there to make a profit. What you save in taxes would soon be matched and then outstripped by the mere cost of living.
