Journey to Jamaa Film: Take Action!!!

There are 3 ways you can participate in becoming a part of a “bigger family” so that children like Margaret & Derek are part of your “family”!

  1. Send an email to your congressman/woman by clicking on the link below to tell them you do NOT want them to cut The International Affairs Budget.

    The International Affairs budget (which is just 1.4 percent of the total federal budget) provides critical, life-saving assistance to combat extreme global poverty, hunger and disease. Ask Congress to protect this part of the budget from drastic cuts. There are few places in the U.S. federal budget where dollars translate so directly into lives saved.

  1. Learn more about and financially  support the  “Strong Women Strong World” Fund:

    The “Strong Women, Strong World” project is a response to the needs of women and girls living in poverty in developing nations. Over the next five years, this initiative aims to raise $15 million, some of which will go toward water, sanitation and hygiene programs.
    Info on our blog about the fund:

To Donate:

  1. Sponsor a Child -- Make a difference in a child’s life through a monthly financial commitment.

    You can be part of a bigger family by helping a child like Derek or Margaret from the film, “Journey to Jamaa” and others in his or her community — with life-changing basics like clean water, nutritious food, health care, education, and spiritual nurture.

    Contact our Child Sponsorship Chair Rhodora Soh at if you’d like to sponsor a child.
