In the spring of 2007, 8 teens saw an Oprah episode and were shocked to see children from Ghana, Africa, being sold unknowingly into a life of enslavement. The International Organization for Migration (www.IOM.int) was making it possible for people to sponsor rescue missions that would save these trafficked children from a life of hard labor and abuse. For $4300 they could rescue one child from these inhumane and brutal conditions and provide them and their families with rehabilitation- including 2 ½ years of counseling, career training, education and healthcare.
Although the girls wanted to raise money (by making and selling bracelets, necklaces, & tees) they were equally determined to raise social awareness. “Do Anything. Do Something.”
Now, the girls have sponsored the rescue and rehabilitation of 24 children through IOM and the ongoing care of 24 orphaned and exploited Ghanaian children through Touch a Life Foundation. (www.touchalifekids.org)
Wanting to make a difference in the USA- they help support an organization called Remote Area Medical (www.ramusa.org). RAM schedules FREE weekend medical clinics in impoverished rural areas. Since this organization relies on the generosity of volunteers and the donated supplies and equipment, it is possible for a $5 donation to give medical, dental and vision treatment for one person! This embraces One is Greater Than None’s mission statement “that any contribution, no matter how small, has value”. Now more than ever, it's time to ask how can you "be part of the equation".
