    This song was written in the early sixties by Buffy Sainte-Marie. It's about individual responsibility for war. We wanted to sing this song because, unfortunately, what Buffy sang about at her time is still is so true today and will probably be so for years to come. We changed the lyrics a bit to make it more relevant to today's society. Enjoy. :)

We want to see 100,000 water filters distributed to families in need from the massive flooding that happened in Pakistan just a few months ago.

Please show your support by either buying a water filter or passing the video along to your friends and colleagues. For more information visit us at: www.purehopepakistan.com or photogenX.net

          As a child we always asked ourselves: What if every person on earth would donate as little as 1 Cent? How much money could we raise? With this question at the back of our minds we want to demonstrate how the power of easily donating 1 Cent via the internet could mobilize the masses.Have a look at the OneCentInitiative and imagine how you can be part of a big change.

              **BLOG POST http://www.asworldsdivide.com/archives/2682 http://www.facebook.com/asworldsdivide Infant mortality is indeed a sensitive subject and, for all things related, difficult to know how best to approach when discussing on a public platform. My dilemma, after having observed an unexpected sense of functionality in a people coping with losing what I’d consider to be an abnormally high number of infants, is that as a result of this I find myself now questioning exactly how to react. In a study conducted in Mentawai in 1978 by Hólfer and Pech, it was found that between 15-24% of women lose a child under the age of five. Which, when compared to most developed countries, is an extremely high percentage. In a study we conducted within remote forest communities here in 2011, it was found that for these women the figures have not improved. Thirty-three years on and still around one in four women here will lose a child under the age of five. Naturally, upon learning of this situation, the mind quickly leaps to the theory that... read the rest of this article at http://www.asworldsdivide.com/archives/2682

                  In the aftermath of January's devastating earthquake in Haiti, post-disaster relief is creating a new kind of problem for businesses there. The massive influx of food aid has altered the price of rice, throwing the delicate balance in Haiti's food supply chain out of whack and threatening to collapse the country's rice market. It's the kind of problem that can turn a one-time disaster into a crisis that lasts years. But international aid organizations like the U.N.'s World Food Programme are trying out a new method of delivering relief that they hope will avoid that problem. "It's a simple idea," says reporter Adam Davidson of NPR's Planet Money. "If people are hungry, don't give them rice. Give them money to buy rice, or vouchers that amount to the same thing. That way, instead of destroying [local] business, you strengthen it." But as Davidson and producer Travis Fox discover in their story The Aid Dilemma -- part of a unique and ongoing partnership between NPR and FRONTLINE -- a simple idea can quickly turn complicated.

                      This is the 3-minute trailer for Embracing the World: The Movie Click here to see the full length version: https://vimeo.com/embracingtheworld/themovie THE STORY OF EMBRACING THE WORLD IS THE STORY OF WHAT HAPPENED WHEN ONE PERSON DECIDED TO OFFER HER LIFE WHOLEHEARTEDLY FOR THE SAKE OF OTHERS. More than 25 years ago, the administrators of a local orphanage confessed to Amma that they were out of funds. They told Amma that before long, they would have no choice but to turn the children out on the street. Amma diverted the money that had been saved to build her ashram’s first prayer hall and used it to assume care of the orphans. With this, Embracing the World was born. Like the orphanage, each of our projects has been initiated in response to the needs of the world’s people living in poverty who have personally shared their problems with Amma. The story of Embracing the World, as much as it is a chronicle of a rapidly expanding humanitarian movement, is also a story about the power of an idea – that each of has a responsibility to help those less fortunate. Ultimately, it is a story about what happened when one person decided to offer her life wholeheartedly for the sake of others. THIS FILM WAS WRITTEN, DIRECTED, SHOT AND EDITED BY VOLUNTEERS.
