Rapha House is far more than just a counseling center or temporary shelter for victims of sexual exploitation.
Every safe house becomes a rescued girl’s home and though we could never replace her parents, we see it as a huge privilege to love every girl as family.
"We hope it's clear by now that the point of the month is NOT "Eat rice and beans three meals a day for thirty-one days or you fail." Strategize and plan. Get creative. Pray about it. Do what works for your current lifestyle. Any form of participation has a significant impact. What you choose to put on your plate in March will directly impact what a vulnerable child finds on their plate for the year to come." - Kevin and Rachelle Webster

We love all the updates we’re getting from the team in Kore, Ethiopia! Julie, our founder, said, “We held our first Kore women’s led committee meeting and it was amazing! We had Shiro & injera together. I loved all of us casually eating, talking and doing life together. This is what it’s all about!” We’re so thankful for @eu_enactus, who is launching the community fund that is enabling this leadership committee to make positive changes in their community.

This woman certainly doesn’t need an introduction to most, but for those who are new to Happy Kids...meet @kelsfinnegan President of the US Board of Directors. Kelsey began working in Ghana in 2009 as a volunteer in a local school. When she first came to Happy Kids, there were 12 kids living in a room the size of a closet. They only had one classroom, and the rest of the kids learned outside under the trees. Fast forward to today...Happy Kids is thriving, housing 60 children and providing education to 180. Kelsey pushed beyond meeting the basic necessities of food, housing and education and implemented programs for the children to acquire essential skills and substantially improve their quality of life. To put it simply, Kelsey makes the world a better place wherever she goes. Her passion for tackling poverty head on has united people around the globe to change the lives of some pretty amazing kids in a small village in rural Ghana. #meetthestaff#changemaker#happykids#ghana#socialgood

Authenticity is the most critical part of your social strategy, and there are certain habits you should be incorporating into your strategy every day. My favourite tips: focus on your audience, be consistent, be transparent, be personal, and above all, listen and respond to your followers! 💙

It was a chilly day in Romania when we visited this community to donate rain boots. We started off the morning by greeting the families and by introducing ourselves. It could not have been a better way to start the day! 🌞 #ThanksToYou#GivingPovertyTheBoot
Rajab and his family live in the Morogoro Region in Tanzania and are some of the people that @grandeurpeakglobal helped bring clean water to. Rajab is a school teacher in the area and his wife works as a tailor. and they have two small children pictured above. Before receiving a BioSand filter, Rajab and his wife would spend much of their income on charcoal that they would need to boil their water to try and make it safe to drink. The charcoal was expensive and wasn't always effective so most of the time they were still getting sick from their water.
Now that they have a BioSand filter, Rajab and his family can save the money that they would spend on the charcoal and they don't have to worry about getting sick from drinking dirty water. A huge thank you to Grandeur Peaks for helping to bring this new source of freedom to the Morogoro region! Celebrate #WorldWaterDay with us and our partners March 22nd by giving to clean water!
