Project India: Don't let these kids living in waste, waste-away!

Amazing children in India living cheerfully in poverty and filth need our help. They may be living in waste and working in waste but their lives need not be wasted. Help us help these beautiful kids overcome their surrounding and realize their dreams!


See the video on our blog

Anyone interested in working with these children, feel free to contact us at helpus@servingothers.org or visit our website at www.servingothers.org

Sponsor a Child from Ethiopia

During our recent trip to Ethiopia to plan a future school building project, we met many remote village children who would like to be educated but cannot afford it.

We decided to start a child sponsorship program where you can help provide education for only $20 a month. This small amount will really make a difference and can change a child's future!

Please visit our home page at http://www.servingothers.org/ where pictures of these children are being presented and click on the picture to select and sponsor the special student of your choice.

Masai and the Black Rhino

Here is an interesting video about how young Masai Warriors pits their wits against an ancient and worthy adversary - the Black Rhino.

The Masai Tribe is quite a peaceful tribe and do not even hunt the wild game around them but rather live in harmony with them, tending their flocks of goats and cows amoung various wild animals from the age of 8 years.

Land grant from Ethiopia!

In response to Serving Others Worldwide's request to build a school and assist in humanitarian aid to those suffering with famine in southern Ethiopia, we have received notice that the Ethiopian government has agreed to donate 10,000 square meters of land in rural Hadero, free of charge, for us to build an eight room elementary school and use as a base to help those in need.

This is an amazing confirmation that we are to step out in faith and do all we can to accomplish this mission as soon as possible. The cost for the materials of an eight room school building and food relief is $60,000. This is where you come in! We need all who are able to donate to this project so that we can accomplish all that we have offered to the Ethiopian locals. We also need all able bodied volunteers to email us their interest in going to construct the building and distribute the food. Email us at helpus@servingothers.org

Below is a short video on the situation there in Hadero:

Crocs for Kids Campaign

When we found out that the majority of poor children and adults get worms just because they do not have shoes, we thought, “We can fix that!” And now with the innovative creation of the Croc we are able to give a quality product that will breathe without socks, will not break down in the water during monsoon season, and will protect feet from injury and worms.



We are asking everyone to donate crocs that we can take on our projects to give to the locals and schoolchildren we serve.



Please send sizes 2-10 to :

March 2008, Masai Mara Humanitarian Project

We would like to thank all who gave and all who participated in our Kenya 2008 project. Thanks to you, our trip to the Masai Mara was a complete success. We built an extension to the Olopikidong'oe school and held a medical clinic where the Doctor and his assistants treated the locals for malaria, typhoid, and dysentery. We also erected a windmill for power and distributed much needed school supplies and held a program for over 600 children.

Our group this time consisted of 32 individuals comprised of half adults and half students. The benefit of taking students is that you not only change the life of the people you are going to serve, but you also impact the world view of each student thereby making them more aware and willing to give back as they grow into responsible adults.

We encourage you to continue to share our vision by either making a donation of financial support, taking time out to personally participate, or if you are a business - consider pledging matching funds toward a project. For more information feel free to email us at helpus@servingothers.org.
