Clear Path International
Clear Path International provides medical, socio-psychological and economic assistance to landmine accident survivors, their families and their communities in Asia.
Relief and Education for AfghanChildren
We finance schools for girls in rural Afghanistan. We help the Villagers by providing funding and guidance on negotiating with the Afghan Ministry of Education to register the school as construction nears completion. Started by Afghan ex-patriots, the Board now has a predominance of Afghan ex-patriots, rounded out by US-born members (both Afghan and non-Afghan heritage).
To help these schools become “owned” by the Village, we require the villages to donate the land and at least 50% of the required labor. This makes the school truly theirs, and helps ensure continued operation of the school.
PRONTO International is an obstetric and neonatal emergency training program that leads inter-professional medical care teams through a series of skills stations, team-building activities, and low-tech, highly realistic simulations.
