Thistle Farms, Inc.
I love this organization! It lives out a promise that with 2 years of employment and a caring community any woman stuck in a cycle of addiction and prostitution can participate in her own rescue! I have been going to their sewing and paper studios for three years. They are the real deal! They have such a good outcome that the TN. prison system has asked them to share the same mindset from inside the prison walls. Here 'ya go: http://thistlefarms.org
Lwala Community Alliance, Inc.
Check out the apple video of the Lwala project here: http://tinyurl.com/meevoe3 -----The alliance started with two brothers that came to Vanderbilt to learn medicine. Vanderbilt, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Harpeth Hall, and many other N'ville groups have rallied to keep this medical facility in operation in a very remote corner of Kenya. They have improved infant mortality by 75% and they work on gender equality by aiding young female students to stay in school by building wells so that task does not take them away from school. http://lwalacommunityalliance.org
