Following on from my post on child soldiers last week, I have decided to feature a post on how you can get involved and help in various areas of the world. You can comment here or email missus.emm [at] gmail [dot] com if you would like your cause featured here and I will put a permanent link to this post in my side bar.
Help former child soldiers from Liberia in their education and development. This fantastic programme helps former child soldiers reintegrate into their community, continue their education and become meaningful and contributing members of society. They desperately need your help!
This is a South African community based programme where you can sponsor an Aids/HIV orphan to be schooled, homed and supported in their own community. At present, Children of the Dawn cares for hundreds of children over six rural communities but they need your help! It costs less than 50p or $1 a day to sponsor a child.
I discovered this over at Jayne's excellent blog Gleeful. This is an Australian programme where you can sponsor a disadvantaged child. They are currently helping 27,000 children and you can sponsor a child for about AU$1 a day.
