Notebook/Blog for March 2010
I recently had my first chance to work with a non-profit, US 501(c)(3) Corporation. They're a Christian-based organization called Mountain Child. My role was to provide branding, including logo, business cards and t-shirts, as well as the initial website. It's obvious why non-profits need an army of volunteers. I live in Korea and came to work with Mountain Child by way of the Church my husband and I attend. Korea serves as a basecamp where Mountain Child trains volunteers before they're ready to serve anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 years among the poverty and despair of the Himalayan people. When I listened to Mountain Child's story, I knew I could believe in this project and felt motivated each day to do my best work. Friends of mine are regularly taking breaks from their teaching positions to volunteer at the R.A.N.C.H. (Remote Areas of Nepal Children's Home) in Nepal. When they return, their stories are moving and their photography breathtaking. Many of these children will not live past 8 years old because their tribes lack fundamental medical care. Mountain Child's mission is to set up schools, Christian churches and medical facilities so these children have a chance to enjoy childhood and live to become thriving adults.
