MŠMT (The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports) has announced the results of the “Subsidy program for non-governmental organizations for the support of school diet of elementary school pupils” for the year 2016 and those are good news for us. We received a grant which is worth 1 977 271 Kč for our project Lunches for children.
According to this grant we will be able to help more children with financial difficulties and ensure the continuance of this project in future years. We are also happy to see that more organizations are trying to help to solve this problem.
The Clinton Foundation was established by the forty-second President of the United States Bill Clinton. The spectrum of this foundation’s activities is very diverse:
it supports the economic development of the less developed areas, observes the climate changes and realizes healthcare programs including the struggle against AIDS or children obesity. No one motivates people and moves the mountains like Clinton,” wrote the Fortune magazine on his account. The whole family got involved in the activities of the foundation. The former foreign minister, for example, works on a project for the rescue of African elephants from poachers. The daughter Chelsea’s main interest rests on international projects and educational programs. Her increasing influence is highlighted even by the Forbes magazine that included her in the group of ten women which are worth observing in 2014.
The founder of the worldwide movement UNITE4:good is Anthony Melikhov. He comes from Minsk in Belorussia. After his arrival to the USA in 1989 he subsequently founded and led the company Sagmel.
After a long-term stay in the jungles of Panama he returned to the USA with a decision to keep creating positive energy and contribute to the promotion of good. He began his activities in the non-profit organization Bright Future International in 2010 just to establish his own project UNITE4:good 3 years later. The main mission of the foundation is to unite all the people with good intentions and to create new programs that would bring positive and long-lasting changes in various areas – especially among children – on a global scale.
The Red Eye foundation is led by Justin Mayo. He and his foundation focus primarily on young authors who profess various and often very unusual platforms.
Justin helps those people to incorporate into the society and to find some kind of a “modus vivendi” with the world that surrounds them and that they do not always understand completely. However, that does not mean that his intention is to cut them off from their creative abilities – just the opposite! He strives to foster their talent and to apply their works. The list of other campaigns is very diverse, too. Let’s mention for example the Central Park run for the children with autism, the foundation’s success in Brooklyn where more than two hundred families obtained clothes, food and other basic necessities of life, or the visit of Harlem Basketball Camp for children. One of the high points of the year is the event organized for the Mother’s Day. The foundation procures a hairdresser, a makeup artist and other volunteers who help the women without means to dress nicely and to decorate their nails. After the makeover pictures are taken and given to the women in order for them to be reminded of their femininity in the less fortunate times.
It cooperates with individuals and organizations which improve the life of the communities of the Sub-Saharan Africa.
They aim to reveal the causes of poverty that could otherwise be overlooked. The goal of the foundation is to search for other organizations that can provide assistance in their efforts. Subsequently, they give rise to specific solutions together. The Segal Family Foundation employs two main procedures in order to achieve the given goals: 1. It provides financial support through flexible funding. 2. It conveys active partnerships while including scholarship holders with innovative ideas, professional knowledge, and searches for suitable opportunities to help the monitored regions. The foundation ensures help to sub-Saharan Africa with more than 130 partners in 18 countries. In 2013 it donated over $8 million in grants and it continuously increases its financial support.
This foundation was established by Forest Whitaker – an American actor, producer and director. Whitaker won an Oscar for the role of Ugandan dictator Idi Armin in the film the Last King of Scotland (2006).
Aside from that he also acquired the Golden Globe and BAFTA. He became the fourth Afro-American who won an Oscar for the best male-lead performance. Except of this foundation he is also a co-founder and a chairman of the International Institute for Peace and the UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Peace and Reconciliation. Forest Whitaker devotes most of his free time to humanitarian work. His social conscience induced him to look for ways of utilizing film as a means of strengthening of people’s awareness. He produced awarded documentaries about child soldiers to whom he wants to help with their return to a normal life. In addition, he is interested in providing hospice care to prisoners and he mapped the city life of Newark, New Jersey. Whitaker acquired many prizes for his humanitarian and foundation activity.
The Tiger Woods Foundation was established in 1996. Eldrick Tont "Tiger" Woods was born in California. Today he is the most successful golfer and a sportsman with the highest earnings in the world – his income has exceeded $1billion.
The Tiger Woods Foundation focuses primarily on providing education to young people who would not be able to acquire it without this assistance. All the main activities of the Tiger Woods Foundation stem from the Tiger Woods Learning Center. It is an educational facility built in the south of California. Students from all the corners of the world graduate from various educational programs focused on science, mechanical engineering, modern technologies and mathematics. In other classes they can study cosmic engineering, marine biology, graphic design and communications. There are also two affiliates of the facility in Washington. In these educational facilities the programs are likewise focused on sophisticated technologies and innovations, including the construction and programming of robots, space conquest and movie-making. Many graduates then continue in their studies at universities such as Harvard, Georgetown, UC Berkeley or UCLA.
