  • #GivologyGrads: Tanzanian Childrens Fund

    [font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif] [/font][color=#669900]The Tanzanian Children's Fund (TCF)[/color] is dedicated to improving the lives of marginalized children in the Karatu region of Northern Tanzania. The Rift Valley Children's Village (RVCV or the Children's Village) was created in 2003 to provide a loving home and a life of opportunity for orphaned children. Today, almost 100 children lead happy, healthy lives at the Children's Village. They receive far more than food, clothing, and shelter; each child at the Children's Village grows up securely knowing that they are loved and that they are an integral part of this unique community. They are not up for adoption; the Children's Village is their permanent family, nurturing them to become productive citizens and future leaders of Tanzania. Although the Children's Village is their main commitment, they recognize that the most effective ways to improve outcomes for marginalized children is to stre...

  • Volunteer Spotlight: Alex Yu

    In the era of digital plentitude today, social media is a pivotal platform in attracting followers, building awareness, and publicizing aspirations for a nonprofit like Givology. Behind Givology’s social media is the team’s co-director, Alex Yu. For the past three years, Yu has been a vital member of the team: his responsibilities now include facilitating weekly social media calls to crafting daily posts on Givology’s largest social media page on Facebook that reaches up to hundreds of followers. Currently finishing up his junior year in Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, Yu first encountered Givology at an internship fair in his school during his freshman year. Yu joined the team because he saw merit to Givology’s 100% volunteer model and the flexible, remote working environment. In addition, being raised in an affluent community with a multitude of rich education opportunities, ever since learning that this is not the case for countless youth around the globe...
  • Volunteer Spotlight: Deepika Mehta

    When Deepika Mehta, Co-Director of the Givology Chicago chapter, was asked about her motivation to stay involved in philanthropic efforts to make education accessible, she recalled Nelson Mandela's quote: "Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world." Ten years ago, Mehta visited her grandfather in India where he showed her around his hometown in rural Rajasthan. During the peregrination, Mehta discerned the obstacles that many children were facing before their path to education. “He showed me the challenges kids faced within the schools there, such as lack of equipment, books, or even bathrooms,” she said. To alleviate these hurdles of such children, Mehta’s grandfather had been conducting humanitarian work, which inspired Mehta to do the same. “All kids should have access to a proper education, and it is extremely important for me to contribute what I can to make sure that is the case,” she said. Mehta began school at the age of three in Ind...
