Amizero Academy: Educate Young Girls in Rwanda
While there is has been an increase in the number of Rwanda children admitted in school each year across the nation, the facilities and resources to accommodate them has not increased at an equivalent rate.

 

The Amizero Academy works with community leaders in identifying high-risk children that would otherwise not be attending primary school. Of the 61 students currently enrolled, nearly half of them are confirm to be infected with HIV, and the academy’s goal is to provide educational services to those most vulnerable and without hope. The school currently serves children between the ages of 3-7 years old, and the school waves school fees for children infected with HIV.The community is able to cover other classroom expenses through selective market opportunities led by mothers of the students involved in sewing programs and artisan craft sales facilitated by TRO Rwanda.

The Rock ’n’ Roll Camp for Girls

A Portland Oregon 501(c)3 non-profit
The Rock ’n’ Roll Camp for Girls builds girls’ self-esteem through music creation and performance. Providing workshops and technical training, we create leadership opportunities, cultivate a supportive community of peers and mentors, and encourage social change and the development of life skills.

 

Rock ’n’ Roll Camp for Girls was founded in 2001 by a Portland State University student as a summer day camp. In 2003, the organization moved into its own space in Northeast Portland and, in an effort to further fulfill the mission of the organization, launched the Girls Rock Institute, an after-school program that provides more opportunities for girls to get involved throughout the year.

Super Food Drive

Giving the Gift of Health
The mission of SuperFood Drive is to provide healthy foods (SuperFoods) to low income communities nation-wide. Through individual participation and community collaboration, SuperFood Drive aims to increase the nutrient-density of foods that are donated in food drives to ensure that all individuals have access to a healthy meal.

 

Individuals typically respond to food drives by pulling cans from the back of pantries. SuperFood Drive’s aim is to provide nutritious SuperFoods to the those who would not otherwise have access to them, and as a result, educate both the individuals donating, and those receiving, about the health benefits of nutrient-dense SuperFoods.
