E-newsletter July 2010
We have more than 35 offices around the globe, all working toward a common goal of changing lives. Miles keep us apart for much of the year, but we feel it's important to bridge this distance now and then—and our annual BusinessWorks event allows us to do just that. Last month, we gathered with our regional leaders to discuss the work of the Foundation: the impact we've seen, the projects we're working on, and what we're doing next. View photos of the event here—and read on to see what a difference we're making together.

Invest in a Village

New Village Project—100% Match

Young Bedouin Women's Leadership Project at Lakia Village, Israel

In the village of Lakia, the nomads who once roamed the desert sands have learned to build permanent homes—but as a society, there is much more to be learned, particularly in regards to women's rights.
Invest in this village, and you'll help women learn to be independent in this patriarchal society—and we'll match your donation 100%.

Featured Project Update

Agricultural Cooperative at Don Chum Village, Thailand

Thanks to your generosity, we've reached our first fundraising goal at Don Chum Village. We'll be purchasing chickens, a fish pond, and local crops for the village—but there is still much more to be done to help the project become fully self-sustainable.
