If you would like to support a wonderful responsible and effective organization that works in Tanzania and Peru (so far), then I encourage you to learn more about Building for Generations. Here’s a brief description from Cory Ibarra (the director).
Building for Generations
We support education projects with a focus on persons with special needs. We build appropriate facilities to meet the needs of the community. We enhance existing programs with materials and equipment, and reduce physical and social barriers through community education, outreach, and advocacy. We develop sustainable programs and increase economic opportunities.
To build on the strengths of the community with local participation in assessing, planning, constructing and staffing. We are committed to the inclusion of people with special needs in the Millennium Development Goals of 2015. Our projects address these four goals in particular:
(I) Alleviation of poverty
(II) Universal primary education
(III) Improved lives for woman (heads of household)
VIII) Productive work for youth
