The Ingrid Education Centre
LiveGlobally supports the Ingrid Education Centre by
financing the ongoing construction & improvements of the school building
providing a Teachers Fund to ensure sustainable wages for the school's teachers
growing the sustainability of the school through programs designed to create income (including sewing machines, beehives, and a microloan bank)
providing a safe and nourishing environment for the children (including food for lunches, clean drinking water, sanitary pads, computers and internet)
LiveGlobally has also launched a new program which revitalizes discarded corporate laptops with elementary education packages and offline Wikipedia files translated into local languages. Six Swahili laptops were delivered to the Ingrid Education Centre in early January 2015. Two additional Spanish laptops were delivered to schools in rural southern Colombia and northern Ecuador in January 2015 as well!
SHELDRICK WILDLIFE TRUST
LIVE GLOBALLY sponsors four orphaned elephant calves and one orphaned baby rhino every year.
To date the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has successfully hand-raised over 150 infant elephants and has accomplished its long-term conservation priority by effectively reintegrating orphans back into the wild herds of Tsavo, claiming many healthy wild-born calves from former-orphaned elephants raised in our care.
