Sheltered accommodation in South Africa
Give a vulnerable LGBTQ person a place in a sheltered accommodation! The incidence of violent crimes against lesbian and transgender women has been highlighted by Human Rights Watch (HRW), among others. In a report, HRW stated that physical violence, often sexual, against LGBTQ people was a very common problem in South Africa. A place for one person for a month costs SEK 4,750. The person receives help with safe housing, food, asylum and psychological and medical support. The accommodation is located in the township of Gugulethu in Cape Town, South Africa. The accommodation is run by Inclusive and Affirming Ministries Read more at www.iam.org.za or

Stop the poaching with a "camera trap"!
Join in and collect for a camera trap that is used to stop poaching. A camera trap performs 24-hour surveillance and is strategically placed at a risk area for poaching. The camera integrates with Microsoft Artificial Intelligence software and converts into intelligent devices. If the camera captures a person or vehicle in the picture, a warning is sent to the park rangers who are working to stop the poaching in the area. * Having a camera trap in the area reduces poaching in the area. The cost of a camera trap is SEK 4,000. * In southern Africa, many animal species belong that are hardly found anywhere else, such as our most iconic animal species such as elephant, lion, giraffe and rhino. The fact that so many animals are unique also makes them economically valuable on the world market. Extensive poaching is a serious and global problem, and also one of the largest criminal activities in the world. Elephants and rhinos are poached every day for their horns and pastures. Even felines such as leopards and lions are poached for their skin or various body parts. We work to stop poaching through new technology, training of park rangers, police and prosecutors. We conduct advocacy work in Asia, where trade has increased sharply in recent years. Thank you for helping us stop the poaching !
IT for Children
Schooling & education for girls in Ghana!
In rural Ghana, many girls do not complete schooling. In most cases, it is for financial reasons. Their families simply cannot afford school uniforms, school books, school fees, school lunches and more. Instead of going to school, they are encouraged to help with chores at home, or to sell goods on the street - to raise money for the family. We want more girls to complete primary school in Ghana, and also have access to higher education. This is to have the opportunity to shape their own lives, away from poverty and forced household chores. Through special efforts, we currently cover all school-related costs (fees, books, school lunches) and health care costs (medicines, vaccinations, doctor visits) for dozens of girls who come from difficult circumstances, in two villages in rural Ghana: Dixcove and Busua. Without our help, their families would not be able to afford to let their daughters go to school. In addition to secure schooling, they also receive daily IT training in our facilities every day after school, completely free. We are convinced that these young girls' opportunities for a better financial and more independent life have been greatly improved through this. We want to expand this help, and ensure that more girls in Ghana stay in school - and have the opportunity to get an education. We have set the goal of ensuring that 30 girls from the villages of Dixcove and Busua can go to high school, after primary school, where we are responsible for all fees.
