Fighting to Dream in Malawi

Program seeks to secure an AIDS-free future for girls and young women

More than 9 million girls across sub-Saharan Africa will never set foot inside a classroom. As a victim of sexual assault who became a mother at 14, Brenda could have easily been among them. Instead, she became connected to the PCI Malawi DREAMS Project, a global initiative of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The goal of DREAMS is to help girls develop into Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored and Safe women.

More Than Just a Meal

Food for Education benefits take root beyond school

After learning how to grow healthy crops at his school in Guatemala, 13-year-old Edwin started a garden at home. With profits from his first harvest, he bought food for his family and helped pay the school fees of his younger siblings. Edwin is one of more than 220,000 children who receive a daily meal at school through our McGovern-Dole Food for Education programs in Guatemala, Nicaragua and Tanzania.

On the Road to Recovery

Responding to disaster at home

The Lamar and Fincher families lost everything but the land on which they live to Hurricane Harvey. With no insurance and little assistance on the way, they are currently living in tents. Both families expressed deep appreciation for the direct cash transfers they received from PCI and St. Vincent de Paul of Rockport, Texas. At least 40,000 people have been displaced by the storm. We’re on the ground to help address the immediate needs of the area’s most vulnerable populations.
