Bungamati Foundation Nepal -
Mia Amicas Globally has partnered with Bungamati Foundation Nepal since 2007. This group has been doing great work to help educate the women and children in rural villages in Nepal. Mia Amicas has sponsored childrens scholarships, preschool programs, women's education programs, computer training classes and knitting workshops. We have also donated teachers supplies, books, clothes and shoes. It has been a great pleasure to work with this group and watch these women and children thrive.
If you are interested in learning more about Bungamati Foundation Nepal and the children in need of sponsors click here. The cost is $60.00 for the year and covers all the school cost to include tuition fees, uniform, shoes, schools lesson books and backpack.

Kopila Valley Children's Home & School –
Kopila Valley Children's Home and School was founded by Maggie Doyne of New Jersey.
In 2011, we volunteered at Kopila Valley and painted this mural in their movie/playroom. It was an amazing experience to visit and feel the love and sense of "family" Maggie and the Kopila staff provide to these children (and to us volunteers, too). Maggie is an angel here on earth and an inspiration to everyone who learns of her project. Watch Maggie's DO SOMETHING lecture on youtube...you will be amazed!
Maggie has expressed the need for a medical clinic to serve the children of Surkhet and Mia Amicas Globally would like to offer future support of this project through funding and advocating.
We are planning on returning to Kopila Valley next year and donating Sawyer Water Filters to the home and school.
2012 Update- Check out Kopila Valley Blog to see the water filters in action and other projects we were able to provide for the children and students of Kopila Home and School.

Kiva Micro Credit Loan -
Mia Amicas Globally has been funding micro credit loans through Kiva.org since 2006. With these small loans- the borrowers are able to start businesses which helps produce much needed income to provide for their families educational needs, improve their living conditions andlift themselves out of poverty.
This is a really GREAT tool because your loan gets paid back and you can re-loan it again and again. Micro loans are a simple way to give people all over the globe, the opportunity to help themselves with a helping hand rather than a handout!
Dallu Childrens Orphanage –
Mia Amicas Globally has supported the children at Dallu Childrens Orphanage since 2008. We have provided food, scholarships, clothing, propane tanks, sinks, jackets, school and art supplies, library books, videos and dvd players. We also had a chicken coop built and provided 20 chickens and feed. These chickens help provide much needed protein to the children's diet while creating a small eggs and chicken business. This extra income is a great way for the orphanage to help meet some of their financial needs.
Mia Amicas Globally Clean Water Project -
"The number of illnesses caused by lack of water is hard to fathom. More than 3 million people- most of them under the age of 5- die each year of malaria and diarrhea alone. To put it another way, according to the world Health Organization, nearly 10,000 people die every day from easily preventable water related diseases. Simply providing access to clean water, without any other medical intervention, could save 2 million of those lives each year." -From Blue Planet Run by Rick Smolan and Jennifer Erwitt 2007
Mia Amicas Globally has started this pilot program which will bring clean water to the villages in Nepal. We have partnered with Sawyer Water Filters and will donate 100% of the profit from each water filter we sell to help provide water filters to the village schools, orphanages and homes in rural Nepal.
Learn more about The Mia Amicas Globally Clean Water Project for 2012 here.
