What can I do to help?

How far that little candle throws his beam!
So shines a good deed in a weary world.
William Shakespeare

6 years ago, Kirsten Monson joined her husband on a business trip throughout India and southeast Asia.   In each country she fell in love with the beauty of the land and the people.  She also saw so many struggling with poverty and lack of education and opportunity.  She asked herself, "What can I do to help" and soon came up with the idea for Elevita -- an organization where marginalized artisans can help themselves by selling their products on our website and by developing sustainable enterprises and educational opportunity for their children.

While Elevita may be a little candle in the grand scheme of things, we are working hard to make a difference for those who we can reach. We are grateful to all of our supporters who have help us shine a good deed in a weary world.

3. Help us educate youth in the Philippines!

100% of your donation will go toward scholarships for needy youth in the Philippines. Without this money, it would be impossible for them to obtain an education, as schools are not free in the Philippines. These youth will also receive training in ethics and responsibility that will eventually help them lift themselves and their nation out of poverty.  $125 will educate one student for an entire year.  Your donation will make a huge difference! - See more at: http://www.elevita.com/donate.asp#sthash.ykrCq4p6.dpuf
