Our Impact

Your generosity funds the education and enhanced opportunities of children in need, through local projects that you can see in action in your own communities, and global projects that reach beyond national borders.

Once we have touched the life of a child, the impact is evident in that child’s life wherever he or she may journey. And, our work transforms not only the life of that child, but that of the child’s family and community, and the world forever.

In the stories below, you’ll see our mission come to life. You’ll see how we educate and empower, break the cycle of poverty, set children on a positive path, restore hope, and brighten futures through the power of education. We can only do this with your continued support and generous donations.

OUR GLOBAL IMPACT

Bilingual Books for ESL Students

United States 2018

We have seen a large influx of immigrant families arriving in California and enrolling their children in schools, but watching them struggle as they learn to speak, read, and write English. In Concord, California, that is certainly the case at multiple Title 1 elementary schools. At Cambridge Elementary, many English learners speak Spanish or Dari (one of the major languages in Afghanistan) at home, with parents who may not speak English at all. Learning another language is difficult enough without the added pressure of doing so in a fast-paced school setting. To address this challenge, Yours Humanly donated several bilingual books in both Dari-to-English and Spanish-to-English to Cambridge Elementary through our Bridging Gaps initiative, with the intent of easing ESL student struggles in the classroom and better equipping parents to help their children with homework and reading at home.

Backpacks and School Supplies

Haiti 2018

At Center of Hope School in Hinche, Haiti, students are in desperate need of donations to continue their education. The students there come from impoverished backgrounds with families that cannot even afford to put them through school. Most of what the students and schools have is donated to them, and Yours Humanly wanted to play a role in helping these precious children succeed.
 
We traveled to Hinche and distributed 120 fully stocked backpacks to the students, as well as other essential school and classroom supplies that will help the students continue their education. Achieving a decent education is difficult enough in places affected by poverty without the burden of having to rely on outside assistance for learning tools and supplies. We are honored to have made a difference at Center of Hope School through our Bridging Gaps initiative, and look forward to watching as the students progress in their educational journey with the proper tools and materials in hand.

Computer Education

United States 2018

Many underserved schools in low-income areas cannot afford critical educational supplies or computer technology for their students, leaving children at a disadvantage when it comes to their educational experiences. This is where Yours Humanly takes the lead through our Bridging Gaps initiative, which empowers young students in impoverished areas by closing the gaps between need and available resources and providing tools needed to succeed in school. We teamed up with the Oral Lee Brown Foundation in Oakland, California, to fund the purchase and placement of computers and peripheral equipment, benefitting 100 children in need. The Oral Lee Brown Foundation offers educational assistance and mentoring to underprivileged children in the Oakland area.
 
Having the proper tools for learning is critical for educational success, as is having an experienced and engaged mentor in place for the students. So, Yours Humanly will also help with placing a volunteer instructor who teaches computer science and coding. We are excited about this partnership project and look forward to watching young minds progress with proper tutelage and supplies in place.

Family Literacy Night

United States 2018

Yours Humanly partnered with Stege Elementary in Richmond, California, a Title 1 school, to host a Family Literacy Night held in the school auditorium. The event was a huge success and families and staff who attended had a great time reading and participating in literacy activities. To promote reading and parent engagement, we also handed out hundreds of free storybooks to students for them to take home and read alone or with their parents or caregivers. Family Literacy Night is a program of our Coloring Futures initiative.
 
If you believe, as we do, that literacy programs help children build strong reading skills and become lifelong learners, we ask for your support so we can expand our Family Literacy Night programs to other schools and more children in need. Click here to donate!

Post Hurricane Harvey: Backpacks and School Supplies

United States 2017

Hurricane Harvey, a Category 4 hurricane, made landfall in Texas on Friday, August 25. It hit the first week of school, severely damaging schools, closing classrooms, and utterly destroying precious school supplies and educational materials, affecting hundreds of students of Houston Independent School District.
 
Yours Humanly took the lead in providing 500 fully packed school backpacks to elementary school students who attend Peck Elementary and Durkee Elementary in Houston, Texas. We sent the students back to school with brand new backpacks and the supplies they need to continue their studies: notebooks, pencils, markers, rulers, sharpeners, paper, glue sticks, folders, crayons, and other critical school supplies.
 
We express our sincere thanks and gratitude to Rotary Club of Walnut Creek, Dixon Ticonderoga, Cogenics Consulting Group, and Go Pro for sponsoring this initiative. We would also like to thank our individual donors, supporters, and volunteers, for their contributions of funds and time.

Earthquake Relief

Nepal 2015

The 7.9 magnitude earthquake in Nepal in 2015 destroyed or damaged more than 9,000 schools. In the worst-hit areas, 90% of schools were destroyed, with hundreds of temporary learning centers set up after the disaster. There was concern for the future of millions of traumatized Nepalese children—and fears that if they didn’t return to school quickly, they could become victims of child marriage, trafficking, and child labor.
 
In partnership with UNESCO Nepal, Yours Humanly funded the reconstruction and rehabilitation of three schools: Tribhuvan Trishuli Higher Secondary School, Indrayani Primary School, and Panchakanya Primary School, which were severely damaged by the earthquake. Coordinated through our Bridging Gaps initiative, this effort provided the foundation for thousands of children to return to school safely and continue their education, enhancing their chances for bright and healthy futures.
