Ensuring Access to Education. I give to Trellis Arch (www.trellisarch.org) because they ensure 100% of my donation goes directly to programs that help the most vulnerable children around the world. As a microphilanthropy with no overhead expenses, Trellis Arch identifies the root causes of poverty in targeted locations and delivers results. I know exactly where my donation is going and I've seen the results firsthand. Larger non-profits lack the agility and efficiency that Trellis Arch has demonstrated. I know that my dollars are making a difference.
For example, with $1,350 Trellis Arch provided school supplies and uniforms for 90 orphan girls in India. In Haiti, Trellis Arch is working with 10 children who now attend school thanks to a monthly donation of $130. I worked directly to ensure that a solar hot water heater was installed at an orphanage in Kathmandu, Nepal earlier this year. After the earthquake destroyed our efforts there, Trellis Arch reaffirmed its commitment to the project and is working to complete the repairs even now. For $500, Trellis Arch provided a Christmas party and a field trip to Lake Victoria for 100 homeless boys living on the streets of Kampala, Uganda. When I see how much can be accomplished with such a small amount of resources, I am inspired to contribute more. Trellis Arch could do so much with this prize money. If chosen, I will gladly donate the individual prize to the organization as well. Thank you for this opportunity!
