We’re excited to be working with these new TaroWorks clients.
Heartland Alliance: One of the world’s leading anti-poverty organizations, Heartland Alliance (HAI) works in communities in the U.S. and abroad to serve those who are homeless, living in poverty, or seeking safety. It provides an array of health, housing, job and justice services and leads state and national policy efforts, which target lasting change for individuals and society.
In Colombia, HAI trains community leaders from regions most affected by armed conflict to provide mental health and psychosocial support services to vulnerable populations, including Afro-Colombians, indigenous communities and migrants and refugees from Venezuela. With eight main locations in Colombia, HAI will use TaroWorks to collect M&E information consisting of data from forms and case notes. Most of the data will come from community agents in the field.
Children’s HopeChest: This nonprofit empowers orphaned and impoverished children and their communities through relationships that cultivate holistic transformation and sustainability. Its community-to-community model connects sponsor communities in the U.S. and Canada (churches, schools and businesses) to communities overseas with a high population of orphaned and impoverished children within in countries like Guatemala, Kenya, Eswatini, Russia, Moldova, Uganda and Ethiopia.
Children, their parents or guardians and other community members in each country take advantage of HopeChest nutritional, medical and educational programs as well as emotional and spiritual support and income-generating activities. TaroWorks will be used initially to collect and analyze development metrics on the children.
United World Schools: This UK registered charity aims to ‘teach the unreached’ by building and developing community schools for out-of-school children in Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal. United World Schools works in some of the world’s poorest regions to give every child access to free education.
A charity dedicated to bringing education to children in remote areas, it builds schools and support communities by teaching children to read, write and count – with the goal of improving through education life opportunities for some of the world’s poorest children. They will be using TaroWorks in Nepal, Cambodia and Myanmar to initially track data on student attendance, living conditions, students at risk and students with disabilities.
Living Water International: This faith-based non-profit “exists to demonstrate the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water…” The organization helps communities in emerging markets create sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene programs in response to the global water crisis. They operate in 18 countries.
Through its mission, Living Water International “mobilizes communities, churches and governments toward physical and spiritual transformation.” TaroWorks will be used initially to track data around water, sanitation and hygiene projects as well as community mobilization activities.
