Campaign from Columbus Coalition for the Homeless (via Osocio)
Today is Blog Action Day, an annual nonprofit event that aims to unite the world’s bloggers, podcasters and videocasters, to post about the same issue on the same day. Aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion. This year it is all about poverty.
Instead of writing and reading about poverty, let’s do something about the issue straight away:
Why don’t you support the womens initiative on Tumbatu – an off coast island near Tanzania. In order to become independent from the middlemen broker of their fish selling, they want to trade their fish directly on the mainland or at the marketplace on Zanzibar Island. Therefore they need a boat. 8 women cooperatives, lead by the biggest one Acheni, joint together for this to better their living conditions.
Or enable poor farmers in Ecuador to buy additional equipment and seeds to increase their harvest, thus escaping poverty with dignity and by their own efforts.
