ANGEL COVERS

 

THE ORGANIZATION

Angel Covers is dedicated to providing the world’s orphaned and destitute children with access to proper health care, education, nutrition, and housing through a holistic approach. The organization works in Kenya to provide funding support to established schools and group homes. It also ensures the daily provision of fresh fruit to several group homes, sponsors teacher salaries, and runs a program to provide orphanages with chickens and supplies to establish a self-sufficient source for nutrition. Angel Covers additionally has programs and distribution channels in non-African countries worldwide.

 

CURRENT PROJECTS

Humble Hearts School and Angel Cottage: Through fundraising and student sponsorship, Angel Covers supports this school - primarily for the deaf, but also accepting other needy and orphaned children - in Nairobi, Kenya. The organization’s efforts help to provide safety, nutrition, sanitation, and shelter to students, including through the Angel Cottage residence for the deaf.

Chicken Projects: This project distributes chickens and husbandry supplies to orphanages in Angel Covers project areas so that they may move toward self-sufficiency in feeding their children.

Classroom Sponsorship: Teachers working with orphans and poor children are often unpaid or under paid. This project aims to retain teachers and sustain education for these children.

Fruit Project: With $25 a week, Angel Covers provides fresh fruit for children in a number of group homes in Nairobi.

 

OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENT INVOLVEMENT

Fundraising Internship: The Fundraising Intern will aid in the development and implementation of an annual giving program and focus on organization, coordination and marketing of special events. A commitment of 3-6 months is preferable due to the long-term nature of planning a special event and follow up for an annual campaign.

Executive Assistant Internship: The Executive Assistant will assist the Executive Director with organizing and logging inventory, maintaining records, and general administrative tasks, while experiencing the nuts and bolts of non-profit management.

Social Media Internship: The Social Media Intern will be in charge of maintaining Angel Cover’s social media outlets, sending out eNewsletters, creating a Flickr page, and aiding the fundraising and development program.

THE ORGANIZATION

Hope Shines is an international nonprofit focused on enhancing and improving the lives of Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) in Rwanda, Africa. We create unique and tailored programs in education and health care that organically empower these youth to rise up out of poverty. A holistic approach to breaking down barriers to success is our goal.

 

CURRENT PROJECTS

Life Empowerment & Academic Development (LEAD) program: A year round program in Rwanda whereby students meet at our Academic Center once a week to learn subjects in Science, English, Life-Skills, and Career Development. Primary and Secondary school kids learn a curriculum designed by US and Rwandan educators that aligns with the country’s education priorities. Qualified
students in this program also earn a stipend that covers school fees and supplies.

Summer Camp program: A core program for Hope Shines, volunteers from the US spend up to 3 weeks working with Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Rwanda through our Summer Camp program. Unique activities are taught by volunteers and Hope Shines staff, which also include local Rwandese mentors. Children learn through arts & crafts, sports/play activities, health & hygiene education, and career development workshops. Additionally, volunteers can assist in health check-ups while working alongside a US doctor. Volunteers in this program truly immerse in the culture by working alongside local mentors and translators as well as by spending a full day at the ‘Cultural Experience’ day trip at the end of camp.

SAVING MOSES

 

THE ORGANIZATION

Saving Moses is a global humanitarian organization helping babies (5 and under) everyday by meeting the most urgent and intense survival needs where help is least available.  We are our own 501c3 with our headquarters in the Denver Tech Center. Saving Moses currently works in Angola with plans to expand to other African countries over the next 3-5 years.

 

CURRENT PROJECTS

• Malnutrition Feeding in Angola Africa: we provide therapeutic milk to several clinics in Angola, Africa. This formula is essentially “milk on steroids” and alleviates severe malnutrition in babies. We have seen great success with this formula with a 75% cure rate.

• NightCare®: we offer NightCare centers in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. These centers shelter the babies of sex workers at night when they are most vulnerable. Babies are often abused by their mothers’ clients, exposed to their mothers’ work, or left locked in a room unsupervised.

• Midwives: we provide funding for midwives in several rural clinics in Afghanistan to support healthy birthing practices.

 

OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENT INVOLVEMENT

Saving Moses provides a range of internship opportunities for students. These include research projects to support expansion, developing donor services to enhance our community, and short term projects to support our mission. We accept internship applications on a regular basis and offer flexibility on the internship term length.
