Heroes of the Nation, through its “Village Concept” is developing its orphanages with “home-based” care programs that help to prevent the disruption of the family unit that is essential to Kenyan life.  The “Village Concept”, as part of the health-care program, includes the development of resource centers in rural areas that contain videos and information about the AIDS virus and its prevention.  HOTN believes that education leads to hope, and hope leads to action.

The Heroes of the Nation School, has been operational since 2002 and currently has 534 students in primary and high school. This element of the project is very important to the development of the community for the following reasons:

The children of the community attend HOTN for schooling for the following reasons:
i)    the standard of education is very high;
ii)   there is a boarding school available because it is too far to travel daily;
iii)  it is the only boarding school in a 10 km radius;
iv)  the children are fed a nutritious diet enabling them to concentrate;
v)   the location of the school is a long way from bad influences eg. drugs/alcohol, etcetera;
vi)  the school is needed because nearest town is 7 km away.

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake smashed the Cebu province including the central island of Bohol, The Philippines on Tuesday morning, ripping apart bridges, tearing down centuries-old churches and triggering landslides that engulfed entire homes.

 

The number of people confirmed killed on Bohol and neighbouring islands climbed from 93 on Tuesday to 151 on Wednesday night as the full scale of the disaster became clear, and there were no tales of miracle rescues.

 

Our partner has over 800,000 meals ready to deliver to residents of Bohol Island.  Immediate financial support is required to be able to deliver the meals.

bohol newsletter 04.jpg

 

Many people are now homeless and shops are closed, so hunger over the coming days and weeks will become a real problem.

 

In the coming days we want to help transport all the food from Manila to Bohol Island and then distribute it to the hardest hit of the 1.2 million residents.

 

 

 

*Make your tax deductible donation to help the distribution.               (All donations over $2 are tax deductible)

Fifty staff ready to deliver food

 

bohol newsletter012.jpgOur project partner on Bohol Island has over 50 staff and does amazing work helping to transform the lives of thousands of locals every year through the Transform program.

 

They are such an inspiration to us and we know that they are already helping those in need, so we just need to support them at this time through donations to get the shipping and food distribution organised.

 

Your support would be greatly appreciated at this time.

More about the earthquake...

 

bohol newsletter 02.jpg

Cebu province, with a population of more than 2.6 million, is about an hour away by plane from Manila. Neighbouring Bohol, a favourite of tourists because of its sandy beaches, is a short boat ride away from Cebu.

There were reports of aftershocks following the quake.

Nearly 3 million people were affected by the 7.1 magnitude quake on Tuesday, which caused landslides and widespread damage to infrastructure in the tourist destinations of Bohol island and the nearby Cebu islands.

The number of injured rose towards 300, with at least 23 people missing.

The national disaster agency said at least 134 of the dead were on Bohol Island, which took the brunt of the quake. The island is located 630 km (390 miles) south of the capital, Manila.

Officials feared the toll would rise as communications with remote areas were re-established.

Knowledge is Key for a Bright Future

FROM CAMBODIA

placeholder150.jpgThese kids are hungry for knowledge and so happy that they have a chance to study in a ‘class’. They know that this is their chance to have a bright future!

Two village outreach projects for children are out in the back blocks of the province. One ‘class’ takes place under a big old tree and at a second location the ‘class’ takes place under a house. White boards are replaced with flip charts and chairs replaced with tarps.

The children travel along the wet pot holed roads, slipping and sliding in the mud and rain, as they excitedly make their way to their ‘classrooms’ much earlier than they need to. 

Mums’ and Dads’ sit around the boundary of the class and the joy on their faces can’t be hidden.

Many of these parents would not have had an opportunity like this and have no doubt struggled through their lives as a result of illiteracy. The teachers are passionate about imparting their knowledge to the children, so class time is special for all involved.




Women’s Lives are Changed

FROM BANGLIDESH

placeholder150.jpgUnskilled women are given an opportunity for self-development in the communities where Be A HERO project partner, Global Concern is educating children .

In India and Bangladesh sewing classes ares part of the community development program training village women in the tailoring skills they need for employment. Many are able to find work in garment factories, earning an income for the first time in their lives.

The Indian women who formed a “self-help” group are so grateful for the opportunity to own their own sewing machines so they can sew clothes at home and earn a living.

All these women's self-esteem has improved as they are able to help provide for the daily needs of their families.

placeholder150.jpgA one off donation of $170 will provide a  sewing machine to help one woman fight her  way out of poverty.

Ongoing support of just $33 a month to support a child also provides training for these women.  

 



Be A HERO - Share your heart for others

 

placeholder150.jpgAnyone with a voice, computer or a pen can be an advocate.

Just start talking to those around you about the issues of today: poverty, AIDS, child labourers, orphans, street children, child soldiers, sexual exploitation, slavery, unsafe water, children not in school, maternal death rate, refugees, night commuting children, human rights, justice – pick one that you are passionate about, study it, and SPEAK UP!

After a meeting with school principal, Paul Bancroft in 2013, Cleveland District State High School decided to take its already extensive social justice programs to new frontiers by giving Be A HERO the opportunty to make the school's senior uniforms through our HERO Shop!agape 3.jpg

The HERO Shop concept is to make transformational change of lives in developing countries as well as helping to engage Australians who purchase clothes made by extremely poor, rescued or "at risk" girls in developing countries.

The Cleveland High students can actively participate by wearing and feeling the difference they are making in the lives of rescued girls, thus empowering the next generation so they can be part of the solution for others through this training, empowering and income generating process.

The two projects that Be A HERO work with in Cambodia support over 85 girls and they have been busy making the school uniforms.

agape 1.jpgThe uniforms will be delivered over the coming weeks to be ready for the 2015 school year.  This will be an incredibly exciting time for all of us at Be A HERO and our project partners.

sophy bike.pngBike for Sophy

While Fiona was in Cambodia recently she caught up with one of our great friends Sophy. Sophy works on the ground in Phnom Penh helping keep babies from being trafficked.

Sophy is an amzazing example of helping her own with all of her energy and talents, so when she shared with Fiona how much she needed proper transport to get around, naturally Fiona was empowered to help raise some money to by a moto.

So, the text mesages went out and the "Super HERO" Break the Cycle Cambodia team pitched in and raised $1200 and 48 hours later Sophy took possession of her new (second hand) Honda. We are blessed to have such incredible friends and now Sophy can help more of those in need - awesome!! Michael De Jong (Be A Hero supporter) said, "It was great being involved again in what Be A Hero does best - making a difference and helping those like Sophy be able to help others in Cambodia".

Education Centre in Myanmar Starting Construction 2015

new life be a hero education 1.jpg

Construction will start soon on the education centre at Be A HERO's partner, New Life Trust in Myanmar.

Myanmar ranks number 149 on the UN Human Development Index 2011.

Myanmar is also ranked number 120 in terms of education. (UN HDI & EI 2010) Many children do not have the opportunity to go to school, and those that do, receive very low levels of education.

As there are now signs that the Myanmar is opening up, economically and politically, basic education, English proficiency and computer skills are essential in assisting these communities out of poverty.

Some of the objectives of the education centre:-
new life be a hero education4.jpgA) To increase educational standard in English/Burmese literacy and computer literacy in this community.
B) To establish a preschool facility for community children.
C) To develop a designated library area within the Educational Training Centre.
D) To increase the employment opportunities and thereby reduce poverty in this community.

The education centre will also provide adult classes in IT, family planning, medical care and many other community needed ititiatives.

new life be a hero education3.jpgThis project will continue for many years after the project completion as a comprehensive learning centre.

Whilst it is not anticipated short term, long term fee for service could occur for education services.

This Easter help stop child labour and trafficking by purchasing fair trade chocolate.eggs2.jpg

Cote d’Ivoire (the Ivory Coast) is where 35% of world’s cocoa is harvested. Hundreds of thousands of children work in West Africa’s cocoa plantations. Thousands of children, as young as ten, from neighbouring countries are actually trafficked to harvest the beans from cocoa farms. 

Their freedom is taken and they are forced to work long hours on the cocoa plantations without receiving any money for their work. They work in dangerous conditions using machetes to open the cocoa beans. Most of the boys working on these farms have never tasted chocolate.

INTERPOL and Cote d’Ivoire officials recently rescued 76 children, most of whom had been trafficked from neighbouring Burkino Faso and Mali to do the backbreaking work of cocoa harvesting.

Aldi has stocked their entire Easter range with UTZ Certified products.  Congratulations to Aldi for their stand against human trafficking. There are also choices you can make at other leading supermarkets. Look for - Fair Trade, UTZ certified products.

easter.jpgDownload the Stop the Traffik Good Egg Guide and take it shopping with you! Ask the supermarket assistant or manager to show you where their Traffik-Free Easter products are.

Tell them you are supporting farmers who are engaging in good labour practices and contributing the STOP THE TRAFFIK of children in the chocolate industry.

Meet Abdul, trafficked to harvest the cocoa which ends up in our chocolate. Watch this short clip and share Abdul’s story bit.ly/abdulsstory

Take up the challenge of rescuing more trafficked girls by promoting Be A HERO into schoos, work places and sporting asssociations.

We offer many styles of garments and now also offer custom design for your clothing needs (conditions apply).

Fact - In factories in Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Cambodia and others, the people who make our clothes live in poverty, usually earning just half of what they need to meet their basic needs and care for their families.

This is an industry that, on paper, supports the principle of a living wage, which means they earn enough to live on.

heroshopdf.pngMost high street fashion brands have the commitment to pay a living wage written into their ethical codes but little is being done to deliver this into the pay packets of workers who desperately need it.

You can be sure by purchasing clothing through Be A HERO, the staff that make the clothes are treated with dignity and respect and are able to support their families because the wage is at least double the industry standards.

You can make a huge difference in the lives of others through the simple purchase of clothing.

Orders from 10 - 10,000 garments welcome.This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Cyclone Pam Relief Appeal

VANUATU EMERGENCY RELIEF / CYCLONE PAM

A major relief effort in Vanuatu after the devastation of Cyclone Pam is already underway, we are calling on all HEROES to support the efforts of locals to help those in desperate need.pangobeahero1.jpg

News from the ground in Vanuatu...

Like many other villages, Pango Village, just outside Port Vila, was devastatingly hit when Cyclone Pam crossed from the east to the west side of Vanuatu on Friday 13 March.

Initial reports and photographs show that the community has been severely affected with many roofs and shacks destroyed, trees uprooted, subsistence gardens lost, jobs in jeopardy and lives in ruins.

van.pngEven the loss of tourism over the next several weeks will hit almost every family badly.

Over the past 10 years our friends at Cleveland High School have built a relationship with Pango Village, with groups of staff and students undertaking ambitious projects in the local schools and kindergartens.

Staff and students from their Sister School, Pango Centre School, have travelled to Cleveland for personal development and expanded education.

People urgently need shelter, clean water, food and sanitation and as we find out more information we will alert you to specific needs like housing and infrastructure rebuilding.

While it is exciting to build relationships in good time, the test of these relationships comes in times of need.

We are appealing to all school families as well as the wider Be A HERO community, to reach out with a tax deductible donation to help to help rebuild the schools, kindergartens, village infrastructure and homes of those worst affected, as well as to provide emergency aid where needed.

All money raised will go to the relief effort in Pango Village and beyond if possible.

If you want to help, donations can be made to Be A HERO Australia on the link below or bank transfer.donate

Westpac Bank - Be A HERO Australia

BSB : 034 070  ACC : 308 700

Donations over $2 are tax deductible.

The project is being managed and monitored by Global Development Group with Be A HERO Australia.

Together, we can do amazing things, come on HEROES!
