Help 30 women start businesses!
The reason why people live in poverty is often that they lack a job. There are simply no jobs. We want to change that. And we believe that the solution lies in people's own power and ability. Therefore, we educate and train, mainly women and young people, in entrepreneurship. With the right knowledge and support, they can start their own small business, get an income and change their lives themselves. Each new job is estimated to support 5 people so there are many people who get a better life for each job that is created. In this project, we give the opportunity to 30 women to create new companies to be able to support themselves and their families in a sustainable way.
Protect one hectare of rainforest
Your gift means that you are involved in protecting unique rainforest through Save Rainforest's collaborative project in Latin America. The rainforest is the most species-rich habitat in the world, and in the forests Save the Rainforest works with, there are animals and plants that are not found anywhere else on Earth. By contributing to our work, you help to preserve unique nature for the future, while making a contribution to the world's climate. Preserving these forests is one of the most effective things we can do to combat climate change. The forests bind carbon which, if harvested, leaks into the atmosphere and contributes to the rapidly increasing content of carbon dioxide. The target of SEK 10,000 corresponds to the approximate cost of purchasing, protecting and administering one hectare of square meters of rainforest.

World Childhood Foundation
Children and covid-19
FOR VULNERABLE CHILDREN, CORONA IS MORE THAN A VIRUS || With schools closing and families in quarantine, the already most vulnerable children are now affected. Those living in dysfunctional families, substance abuse, psychosocial problems, insecurity and without a social network as protection. YOU CAN HELP THESE CHILDREN. What children need most is a safe adult. An adult who does not always have to be a close family member, but can just as easily be a neighbor, a friend's parent, the kiosk owner, the adult cousin or someone else who listens and sees the child. Be a confident adult - invite one of your children's friends who you think may need extra support. If they do not answer the first time, ask again. Are you afraid to get involved, maybe wondering if you are wrong in your suspicions? Turn it around: What if you are right instead ?. Keep an extra eye on stairwells, playgrounds and neighborhoods, at children who may not have the natural social safety net. Dare to go ahead, ask questions and listen to the answer. During these times, you can also get in touch via text message or via social channels. TRUST YOUR STOMACH FEEL. If you are worried or have suspicions of violence or abuse, contact the social services in your municipality. Your registration can be anonymous. If you suspect that a child is in acute danger, call 112.
