Young entrepreneurs in our Nicaragua youth livelihoods programs show us around a coffee farm. Coffee production is one of the top livelihoods in this country, but climate change and other factors are making it increasingly difficult for families to make ends meet on this business alone. In collaboration with Students Rebuild, we're helping more than 500 young people learn additional livelihoods and life skills projects to help set them up for a better future. Tune in tomorrow for a live webcast as we connect these youth with students in Miami where they'll discuss their hopes, dreams and youth empowerment: http://ow.ly/T3YO30b4hRo #YouthUplift

2-year-old Melvin rests her head on her mother's lap outside a health dispensary in Kenya where she’s being treated for malnutrition. She first fell ill when she was 6 months old and has been in the program for malnourished children ever since—about 18 months.

We're on the ground providing lifesaving food, clean drinking water, medical care and so much more for children like Melvin. When you give today, your donation will be matched up to $100,000 to make double the impact for children suffering in the Hunger Crisis: http://ow.ly/dboD30bchX9

Nyajok* has two children. Her son, Tut,* is one year old and has been malnourished for three months. When he stopped feeding, Nyajok sought medical help at one of our health centers where we’re screening and treating children for malnutrition as well as providing pregnant and lactating women with food distributions.

In rural Malawi, access to clean water is limited. As a result, children often get sick, miss school and fall behind in their education. With support from our child sponsors, we provide school-based handwashing stations, clean water and soap as part of our lessons on good hygiene. In turn, children often teach their families about handwashing, which can help keep whole communities safe from preventable disease. As a sponsor, you can help us ensure children in Malawi are able to stay healthy, in class and learning: http://ow.ly/Nlmc30b6rw3

"Previously when there was drought we used to move and manage our livestock by finding greener pasture," Baby Neima's* mother, Ayan,* told us. "But now there is nowhere to go."

Thousands of women and children like Neima* and Ayan* are forced to walk hours every day just to find clean water. Read their story: http://ow.ly/vbqQ30b2jAN

2-year-old Cody eats a healthy snack at a school in rural Kentucky. Our Child Sponsorship programs in the Appalachia region focus on combining physical activity and nutrition to give children like Cody a healthy start. With over 40% of kids in the region living in extreme poverty, it’s essential to teach healthy habits in school at an early age. Thanks to the support of our sponsors, children can enjoy nutritious snacks and daily physical activity, leading to healthier lifestyles in the future. Join us as a sponsor today: http://ow.ly/9Qg330aZDhf
