- Malawi Children’s Village Sewing Project
Directed by Nettie Graulich, the sewing project at MCV’s vocational school has proven to be one of MCV’s most successful programs. In addition to training orphans to become skilled tailors so that they can then earn an income in their village, the program has created revenue for MCV by selling clothing, bags and other materials produced by the paid tailors on staff. In addition to training orphans, providing the tailors on staff with a reliable income, and generating money for MCV, the program has also provided the MCV fieldwork team with school uniforms that can be distributed to orphans in need in the villages.
- Project Salvador Scholarship Program, (Tony Gasbarro)
The mission of Project Salvador is to aid the people of El Salvador in implementing their own vision of justice. We express our solidarity and deepen our relationship with El Salvador by creating awareness in the United Stated of the plight of the marginalized in Central America and by supporting grassroots community development through funding of projects in El Salvador and marketing of fair trade crafts in the United States.
- Salamatu Foundation

for Namibia and other developing countries of the world.

- Rock, Paper Scissors (Sara Stevens)
Helping Vietnamese kids by supporting them at home, through school and with new opportunities to learn through art and music.

- The Foundation for West Africa
Leh Wi Tok
Since 2005, The Foundation for West Africa has supported the extraordinary efforts of communities that are using radio to build peace and strengthen democracy in post-war Sierra Leone and Liberia. While our web site provides snapshots of their efforts, the FWA board Board of Directors recognizes the value of these radio pioneers sharing their stories, in their own words, through film and sound.

Last year, proceeds from our fundraiser supported Rhode Island based efforts, including the Foundation for West Africa's work with community radio stations and Edesia's nutritional food program to combat malnutrition. We also supported the Salamatu Foundation who work with teachers and provide picture books in Namibia, a sewing project in Malawi, and Project Salvador's scholarship program for students.
