Solar Suitcases to power hospitals
In the developing world, mothers and babies are dying at night because health facilities don't have electricity to power lights or simple diagnostic equipment. You could support this innovative solution that sends a complete solar energy system – in a compact suitcase – to health facilities. The Solar Suitcase provides lifesaving and sustainable power to maternal and surgical wards.
Moving children out of institutions and into families
There are 8 million children around the world confined to institutions. They are more likely to die and face torture and sexual violence than children in families. Even where institutions are well intentioned, they simply cannot replace the individual support a family provides. Your donation will help move children out of institutions and into families – giving them the chance of life, happiness and a future.
School support for disadvantaged children in the UK
In the UK, a quarter of all children – 3.5 million –are living in poverty. Without help, two thirds of these children will leave school without basic qualifications in English and Maths. You can help fund innovative Saturday programmes that provide extra teaching hours, one-to-one support, and creative learning for children from poor backgrounds who are struggling in school. You could help disadvantaged students to catch up – or even surpass – their more advantaged peers.
Providing effective nutrition to children
Every year 3.1 million children die from undernutrition. A further 162 million children under five suffer from stunting. Stunting can cause irreversible damage to children's brains and bodies – so they're less able to learn and work later in life. Your support for Power of Nutrition will help fund proper nutrition for children in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia who are at risk of death, stunting or severe damage to the brain.
