The Rescuers Project

PROOF: Media for Social Justice, a nonprofit based in New York is being nominated for it's Rescuer's Project. This project collects the stories (film and photography) of individuals who in the midst of violent conflict chose to help the "other". The stories of ordinary people, crossing ethnic and cultural lines, becoming an "upstander" and not a bystander to violence are then integrated into programs (workshops) geared to help young people recognize how they too can become upstanders in every day life.

Reading - key to Aboriginal Success

First Nation, Métis and Inuit people face many challenges. One is trying to succeed in a world in which reading is a pre-requisite to success. Aboriginal people are new readers. As a people, they need time to become strong readers. Time will give their Elders the opportunity to become role models. They need time and they need books that include them and that are accessible to them.

Global Mental Health Systems in Post-conflict Countries

Sin fines de lucro / ONG / Sector Civil
One billion people, a sixth of the world’s population, have directly experienced torture, terrorism or mass violence through civil war, ethnic cleansing or genocide. Many of these victims are left with incapacitating traumatic depression or PTSD—unable to work, care for themselves or their children. In the developing world, and particularly in post-conflict countries, there is an extreme scarcity of mental health services relative to the need.
