Globally, funds will support to international partner schools in Malawi, South Africa, Uganda, Haiti and Lebanon, permaculture and economic development and clean water projects in Malawi and Haiti, an orphan empowerment program and vocational training in Malawi, and seed funding for future project benefiting children in Gaza impacted by the war.
