There are charities that HBC readrs may find interesting. Yjeseinclude groups iding children around the world. These include charities of various kinds sevicing children. There are also schools that could use assistance. HBC is visited by schools all ovr the world working on a range of historical projects. Some of those schools have contacted HBC requesting assistance. HBC readers, either individuals or school groupss, who might be
interested in assisting these schools may want to look at these various requests. In many cases a very modest contribution could make an important difference. HBC is not in a positon to throughly evaluate these request, but we will only post those requests that appear legitimate and relate to efforts to benefit children. We will list small schools and groups without the ability to conduct major drives.
The Center for Courageous KidsŪ is a world-class medical camp designed specifically for the child living with medical challenges who could not attend a traditional camp. We are a 501(c)(3) not for profit corporation dedicated to uplifting children living with chronic or life-threatening illnesses.
Designed for the child with medical challenges and his/her family members, they attend this magnificent facility at no cost to them. We run year round, hosting 2 types of programs from family weekends to full weeks of summer camp. Located in Scottsville, KY we welcome children from ALL across the region (KY, TN, IN, OH and beyond)! In our inaugural year alone, children from 17 different states attended and financial support was received from 36 states across the nation. WOW!
HBC has received this request from a chool in Kenya, "I am writing to you for assistance to my School with many Orphans of Aids/HIV related effects . The School is called Kasubi College School -Kyanja . It is found in Mukono District of Uganda Africa . The Aids
Epidemic is at its bream here in Uganda for over two decades now. I founded this School with a motive of helping the rural peasants who could not afford Secondary School fees in these remote areas where
majority of the residents depend on their small gardens for a living . The influx was also accelerated by the new system of the Government to offer free Education in Primary School but there were no Secondary School to cope up with the number. Many are still in the villages not schooling thogh some have the parents but can not afford our low school fees structure. So my request is for assistance of any kind to help
mostly the Orphans and if at all you have any link to someone that can be of help (foster parents). James Senoga, Diretor and Founder, Kasubi College
HBC received this e-Mail from a school in Lithuania: "The e-mail I am sending you, comes straight away from the far-off country titled Lithuania. It is my supreme honour to introduce myself as Tomas Samoska, English teacher working at the basic school of Laibgaliai, located in the very outskirts of Rokiskis town, Lithuania. Since its recent emanicipation, Lithuania has been facing too many economical hurdles that inevitably injure teaching progress as well. Thus there are lots of kids ranging 9-14 years of age who can barely afford proper clothing. That`s why, referring to such a fact that I`m the only person at the school of ours to speak English satisfactorily, I`ve been enabled by the principal of our basic school Vanda Giriuniene to search for certain charitable organizations that might possibly supply our poorly dressed children with ANY available second hand clothing or footwear. Children are also in shortage of such elementary teaching means as rulers, calculators, computers, writing measures, etc."
Best regards, Tomas Samoska, English teacher. A reader writes, "On your site we found the request of the teacher Tomas Samoska from a Lithuanian school. He is indeed very seriously trying to help his pupils and also contacted the Colour4kids Foundation (Dutch organisation).
I am happy to inform you that Colour4kids made great efforts to help this school and last Christmas, their team went there with two busloads full of clothes, goods and Christmas presents for every schild. Wishing all the best for 2005." Marcel Verhaag
