Since the beginning, Color My World has sought out opportunities to connect with likeminded companies to assist in humanitarian efforts throughout the world. These connections have brought skills, expertise and funding to much needed projects.
DôTERRA ran a match funding campaign with Color My World throughout the month of May, resulting in a $20,000 sponsorship for the homes in Jiquilillo. By working with DôTERRA to reach the financial target, and putting the Color My World volunteers to work in Nicaragua, eight families were able to move into a safe, sustainable home in August.
Wright & Associates Family Healthcare have sponsored Color My World for several years now, through the funding at the El Limonal Dump Feeding Project. Each week volunteers join a community living in the dump of Chinandega to deliver basic hygiene necessities, and lunch for the day. While the feeding project does not provide long term sustainability, our project coordinator, Gerry Caceres, states that:
“The feeding project provides hope for a community forgotten by the government.”
Since the uprising of the Taliban and extremist groups in the Middle East, communities have been displaced or worse. One such group that came to Color My World’s attention was a Pakistan Christian community who had been displaced, and had their lives and liberty threatened from the religious practices that they chose to follow. In the past Color My World has sponsored Christmas lunches for the community, and a sewing co-op for the women. This year however, the community set out to build a school for the children, so they could learn, and prepare for their future. Through the support of The Lantos Foundation, we were able to financially support the building of the school, enabling the children of the community to be in school, just like many other children throughout the world.
2016 has been an incredible year for sponsorships, where Color My World has been able to make a real change through the support of likeminded businesses. With 2 new programs opening in 2017 though, the need for more sponsorships has never been greater. With a mission to relieve human suffering, Color My World needs your support to continually make an impact.
