In Muong Te district in northern Vietnam, there are a number of challenges standing between children and education.

Since early 2015, CWS-supported education programs have impacted Ta Ba commune through teacher training, water systems and community events: cwsglobal.org/ta-ba-education

Today is World Refugee Day! Today and every day we support the 65 million displaced people worldwide because, like these folks in NYC told us yesterday, everyone deserves a home. ‪#‎WRD2016‬

Zero to 25 in three months. That's the progress that Anlong Vaeng village in Cambodia has made towards having sanitary latrines for all families.

Village Chief Hor Thet has led his community's building of latrines by example, and he expects progress to continue. His goal is to have 100 percent latrine use within a year: cwsglobal.org/leading-by-example

When a tree fell on the main water pipe in Me Za Li village, Myanmar, and snapped it in two, it could have meant many weeks without water.

Thankfully, Water Committee member Saw Kyaw had previously attended a CWS-led technical training on water systems. Using the skills he had learned, Kyaw and other committee members were able to change the water pipe themselves, quickly restoring the flow of clean water.

Systems AND training mean strong, independent communities.

"...the ACT Alliance showed up with everything we needed: pots for cooking and soap and blankets and clothing."

A year ago, devastating earthquakes shook Nepal. Through CWS and thus the ACT Alliance, YOU stood with the survivors to help rebuild.

In Tanzania's Nduta Refugee Camp, youth teams are singing, dancing and drumming their way to victory in a talent competition.

CWS helps ensure that these young refugees, and tens of thousands like them, can use this amazing energy to build whatever future they want:cwsglobal.org/nduta-youth

When schools don't have clean water or safe structures, or when hunger drowns out a teacher's lessons, learning is harder than it should be.

Your congregation can help create safe, welcoming learning spaces in East Africa: church.cwsglobal.org/fund-a-program/school-safe-zones/

New blog: recovery from earthquakes in Kumamoto, Japan "has been, and will continue to be, challenging physically and psychologically for residents. But if everything I have seen over the last few weeks is any indicator, the people of Kumamoto will rise to meet these challenges."

Even after five years of war in Syria and millions of persons displaced, the U.S. has only admitted 1,353 Syrian refugees this year. At the fiscal year halfway point, we stand with the White House and Department of Homeland Security promise to welcome 10,000 Syrian refugees this year.
