Trade plus Aid continues to manage its Nutritional Outreach programme, which serves 5 communities in the Johannesburg area. Over 650'000 meals and food parcels are delivered each year to the following:

Trauma Unit South African Police Station in Cleveland Trade plus Aid supplies the Trauma Unit which is the police's own outreach programme. Food is collected from the Trade plus Aid workshop on a Friday morning and is broken down into packets. These packets are distributed to the elderly and infirm in the area, as well as numerous child-run households. Trade plus Aid is one of the few donors to this programme and the people who run it do so on a voluntary basis.

Impelo - Place of Safety Orange Grove Trade plus Aid provides maize meal for abandoned babies and often works with the local police station and the Child Protection Unit to ensure that a safe place is found for each deserted child.

The Central Methodist Church JHB Trade plus Aid donates all the maize and soya needed by the Central Methodist Church, whose volunteers go out onto the street of Central Johannesburg twice a week to feed the hungry. They supply 1'200 meals a night. Those in need are mainly 'illegal' immigrants, who have come to South Africa from its northern borders. Many of these people are not eligible for refugee status and therefore cannot benefit from the state 'system'. Since December 2009 the W Hotel Doha and Doha Marriott has hosted Whatever It Takes sales and events to raise funds for several Trade plus Aid South Africa programmes — assistance for the Twilight Children’s Shelter, Denver Informal Settlement, Life Assistance Hampers for Grannies and the Denver Hospice

Outreach Programmes, South Africa Twilight Children in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, South Africa This project was established in 1983 and provides support to boys aged 8–18 years who are living on the streets and other public places without adequate or apparent adult or family support. The counselors at Twilight determine the boy’s family circumstances and try to encourage him to return to the care of family or guardian. In cases where boys are unable or unwilling to return home Twilight cares for boys’ physical, emotional, educational, health and developmental needs while giving him refuge from the streets in their shelter. For the older boys, Twilight Children provides vocational counseling and guidance as well as suitable training in basic life skills as well as assistance in finding secure employment and assistance in setting them up in alternative accommodation where they can become independent, productive citizens, in the community. Funds raised from the sale of Whatever It Takes products has helped the Twilight Children develop an in house bakery program to: teach the older boys a new skill; eliminate the monthly cost of purchasing bread for the center (approximately 3000 USD/month); and create an additional income generating channel for the center by selling the loaves and sweets to community stores. The Whatever It Takes sales also permitted Trade plus Aid South Africa to purchase food that created over 40,000 meals for the boys and homeless community in Hillbrow that depend on the centers assistance.

Cleveland/Denver Informal Settlement With the assistance and co-ordination of the traditional leadership within the Informal Settlement, it is ensured that the correct protocol is followed for distrubuting food stuffs to the reliable channels with minimal waste. The Whatever It Takes sales have allowed 21st Century Leaders Foundation and Trade plus Aid South Africa to purchase life assistance hampers for lost generation families in the Cleveland/ Denver Informal Settlement in the Johannesburg region of South Africa. These families are headed by a 50-80 year old grandmothers who is raising and providing for four or more children between the ages of 4-18 as the parents have passed away or are no longer capable of caring for their children. The life assistance hampers provide each family with two months of food, basic hygiene products and toiletries.

Natalie Imbruglia Obstetric fistula is a childbirth injury. It occurs when emergency obstetric care is unavailable to women who develop complications in labour. Prolonged, difficult childbirth can last up to 6 or 7 days. The foetus will usually die after 2 or 3 and the soft tissues of the pelvis are so badly damaged that they it causes a fistula, or hole, between the vagina & bladder, or vagina & rectum, or both. This leads to chronic incontinence and consequently the woman's husband & family will often abandon her and she will be ostracized by her community. According to the World Health Organisation, at least 2 Million women are living with fistula in developing countries. Common in Europe and N America until the 20th Century, fistula is now a hidden problem, occurring mostly in poor, remote areas of sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia where medical access is limited & where treatment for young, poor, illiterate girls & women is scarce. Fistula is treatable with reconstructive surgery and its side-effects are manageable with post operative care & counselling. It costs ÂŁ170 to provide this treatment. Working in over 35 countries to tackle the problem, The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) hopes to eradicate the condition worldwide by 2015.

Starfish is an international charity helping to support children orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS in Southern Africa. By 2010 an estimated 2.3 million children will be orphaned as a result of AIDS in South Africa, whilst thousands of others will be in vulnerable situations as their family units disintegrate. However, more than 70% of these children will not have HIV. They will have the potential to grow up & contribute to South African society. If these orphaned and vulnerable children are not cared for, nurtured & educated, they will become a lost generation. Therefore, the day care centre that is receiving all the funds from the wristband sales is a day care project in a township called Putfontein, on the outskirts of Johannesburg. It’s run by Nora, an amazing women dedicated to caring for the over 300 orphaned and vulnerable children from the sitting room of her own home, cooking for them all on a small stove. Many of these children eat only one meal a day. The donation from 21st Century Leaders will go towards:

Kaloko Trust UK was established in 1995 and works to improve the lives of communities in rural Zambia. They do this by working with their local partner organisation Kaloko Trust Zambia, to develop agriculture and income generation - through self-help projects - and by promoting the environmentally sustainable use of natural resources. From this basis, the Trust works to advance education and to promote the healthcare of rural communities through the development and support of a training centre, schools and health clinics. Their programmes cover such areas as agricultural development, including food security; sustainable natural resource management, including water; health and education projects, including HIV/AIDS initiatives; local enterprise development.

The school was founded in 1994. It is a very special school and orphanage with a strong educational and cultural element, the first of its kind in Cambodia and unique in this province. The school cares for 30 orphaned children, a few of whom have a disability, (usually due to Poliomyelitis or Tuberculosis). The children come from remote areas in the province of Kampot and have lost their parents due mostly to the AIDS epidemic. Many children before coming to our school suffered malnutrition, ill-health and some had been marginalized, neglected and abused or sold into slavery. These areas in Kampot still have no electricity or running water, they suffer from drought but also flooding in the rainy season. The zone was severely affected by the war and Khmer Rouge domination until 1997. The school also has an Outreach program teaching and providing food and medical care to a further 65 children from the local community. Many of these children are so poor that without our school’s help, they would be excluded from further state-system education and already be working in the saltfields. A full cultural program is given, including traditional Khmer ballet, music and theatre. These art forms are used as a form of post-traumatic stress therapy, and as a way to conserve Cambodia’s traditional culture after the Khmer Rouge genocide, as well as a form of vocational training. The school works in coordination with the Ministry of Culture and the National Theatre and Royal Ballet. The school’s founder who is British, is also a violinist from the Royal Academy of Music. A complete scholastic educational curriculum is provided from pre-elementary to university entrance level, in coordination with the Ministry of Education. Vocational training is given for older children as they make choices about their future, with a wide range of subjects offered. A creative therapy program is run for smaller children, using painting, puppet making, plays and games and many other happy activities. The school has a successful income generating project, which includes, concerts, growing fruit/vegetables, sale of own silk/cotton handcraft, new plastic re-cycling project. Every dollar goes directly into the project and nothing is wasted on overheads/administration costs. Help through 21st Century Leaders provides essential assistance such as food, clothing, medicine, local transport, maintenance of school buildings and Cambodian staff support.

LifeLine & Rape Crisis PMB works in communities in and around Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, offering counselling in both rape crisis and HIV/AIDS. LifeLine and Rape Crisis PMB is affiliated to LifeLine Southern Africa and LifeLine International. LifeLine Southern Africa provides a 24-hour crisis intervention service available to all sectors of the community throughout South Africa regardless of race, religion or standing. In South Africa it is estimated that 5 million are currently living with HIV/AIDS and that their life expectancy is less than 5 years. South Africa has the highest per capita rate of reported rape in the world and many more rapes go unreported. LifeLine & Rape Crisis PMB works with the victims of rape to prevent new HIV infections and provide counselling. Money donated by 21st Century Leaders has provided training for counsellors in both rape crisis and HIV/Aids. The counsellors are based at 4 sites in the Msunduzi (Pietermaritzubrg) City Health area, providing emergency assistance and accurate information to rape survivors, through the provision of pre-and post-test counselling services for HIV testing and access to post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) and support. These funds will allow LifeLine Rape Crisis PMB to establish a model of good practice in the provision of counselling services relating to HIV/Aids in Pietermaritzburg. It will also be used to ensure that poor people have increased access to affordable and adequate basic health services through the municipal health system. With particular focus on HIV/Aids and gender issues to provide support services for rape survivors. Lifeline is a national organisation with 20 centres and 15 satellite centres around South Africa. LifeLine-Rape Crisis is a lead partner in the CINDI (Children in Distress Network) which focuses on children’s needs in relation to HIV/Aids. The high standard of counselling at Lifeline-Rape Crisis has been recognised by other counselling organisations in the country – and in April 2003 Lifeline-Rape Crisis was invited to train a group of counsellors from South Africa, Botswana and Namibia in rape crisis counselling principles and methods. With the grant received from the 21st Century Leaders, the project was able to expand into the provision of counselling and PEP services to rape survivors. Although LifeLine has been working with women and girls for three years this project now means that 4 Counsellors can be placed in 4 strategic sites to provide services specifically for rape survivors. In addition the Counsellors will be trained to qualify as Social Auxiliary Workers.

StandProud is a U.S not-for-profit charity created to provide international financial support for selected community organizations in developing countries which: • provide corrective treatment, locally crafted leg braces, and accompanying rehabilitative services, at no cost to poor families with children who have been disabled by polio or whohave similar disabilities, and • promote the full integration of disabled persons into society. StandProud believes that • all physically disabled persons should have access to the orthopedic equipment they require in order to achieve maximum possible dignity, mobility and independence, and • a healthy society is one which permits and encourages the full integration of the physically disabled into all of its normal social and economic activities.

Additionally, ACDF, with StandProud support, maintains "rehabilitation homes" adjacent to its brace shops where beneficiaries stay while being treated and learning to use their new equipment. These residential facilities provide an important opportunity for beneficiaries to give each other moral support, gain confidence and reduce self-consciousness. As there has been a tendency in the Congo to stigmatize and segregate persons with physical disabilities, as well as to minimize their potential to make significant social, cultural and economic contributions, StandProud and ACDF supplement their brace-making activities with an education program in which parents of disabled children are taught the importance of sending them to regular school along with their non-disabled siblings (educational "mainsteaming," as opposed to the segregation of disabled youth and their automatic relegation to vocational curricula) and provide some minimal assistance with the payment of school fees to encourage this.

Charlotte di Vita founded Trade plus Aid in 1990 to alleviate poverty in developing countries by means of job creation, capacity building, and skills development through entrepreneurial innovation. Trade plus Aid Africa now instigates innovative carbon livelihood programmes which bring income to rural communities and help reduce carbon emissions to alleviate global warming. The primary environmental programme is a roll-out of bio-digesters in rural areas of Southern Africa, providing a simple to operate, sustainable alternative energy source with a low carbon footprint. This technology saves money, helps prevent deforestation, improves health and hygiene, and decreases pollution of local water sources whilst generating self-sufficient and sustainable income for social development programmes through the sale of carbon credits. The Trade plus Aid South Africa programme will raise $10m from the sale of carbon credits in the next 5 years, and each year thereafter. Trade plus Aid Africa is now also exploring the roll-out of bio-char and green charcoal technologies in South Africa and Mozambique.

For 60 years Sightsavers has been restoring sight and improving the lives of people who are irreversibly blind in poor countries around the world. Founded in the 1950s by Sir John Wilson, with the express aim of restoring sight - wherever possible - in former Commonwealth countries. Today, Sightsavers work with partners in over 30 countries and our mission has expanded to also provide services to the blind and campaign for the eradication of needless blindness. It has been estimated that the number of blind people in the world will increase from 44 million in 2000 to 76 million by 2020, if action is not taken to reduce blindness. The economic cost of this blindness is immense, and developing countries could potentially achieve a ÂŁ192 billion boost in economic productivity over the next 20 years if they adopt appropriate measures to reduce blindness. Sightsavers will continue working closely with partners around the world to contribute to our goal of eliminating avoidable blindness. We will also be calling for international action to include children who are blind in mainstream education. This is essential if the Millennium Development Goal of universal primary education by 2015 is to be achieved.

Rwanda

Since 1997, Survivors Fund has helped survivors of the Rwandan genocide deal with and recover from the tragedies of 1994, supporting a wide range of services for victims in Rwanda, and assisting survivors in the UK. Funded by a variety of organisations and individuals, SURF acts as a channel to distribute financial assistance to groups, individuals and charitable organisations in the day-to-day operations of bringing the people of Rwanda hope, safety, and a decent standard of living. A veteran in dealing with the issues effecting the survivors, SURF holds the belief that support must address the host of difficulties and issues facing victims. Any one angle of assistance on its own, be it medical, economic or social, would be an incomplete answer. SURF provides an appropriate and integrated response to the needs of Rwandan survivors by supporting numerous projects geared at confronting the diversity of their needs.

Founded in 1991, the Burma Campaign UK is one of the leading Burma campaign organisations in the world. They play a leading role in raising awareness about the situation in Burma, and pressuring the international community to take action in support of the people of Burma. Key achievements As part of a global campaign, they persuaded the United Nations Security Council to discuss Burma for the first time. The Security Council continues to be engaged on Burma. They persuaded the British government to double aid to Burma, and to fund crossborder aid in order to reach ethnic people that the regime doesn't allow aid to be delivered to. They have generated thousands of stories about Burma in the media, ensuring the world does not ignore the crisis there. They have persuaded many large multi-national companies to end their involvement in Burma. They have met with the British Prime Minister, and many other senior politicians around the world, ensuring the message of Burma’s democracy movement is heard by global decision makers. They provide support and training to Burmese exile organisations and individuals, building the capacity of people from Burma to speak out and influence the international community. They help to coordinate and build Burma campaign groups worldwide, building a strong solidarity movement to help the people of Burma. They are a small organisation dependent on public support. They do not receive any government funding.

PONT stands for Partnership Overseas Networking Trust. It has been set up to link the town of Pontypridd with a town in Uganda called Mbale. The project aspires to link as many professionals and organizations in Pontypridd with their counterparts in Mbale. The purpose of this is to build a multitude of direct personal relationships between interested individuals and organizations with the express purpose of increasing the capacity and governance of individuals and organizations in Mbale to accept and distribute aid to the poorest communities. At the same time PONT believe the Ugandans have much to teach us about family and community values along with a rich cultural heritage, so the partnership is very much a two way link. The aims of the projects are: • Training and equipping village health workers to provide a basic primary health care service to every village, integrated with the Government service. PONT hope that this will be funded by Pontypridd GP's. • To twin 4 primary and 8 secondary schools in Pontypridd area with similar schools in Mbale. PONT hope in future that every child in Pontypridd will grow up with a clear awareness of the problems facing their friends and contemporaries in Uganda. • Supporting the multitude of Aid's orphans in Mbale so that they will receive a basic education, clothing and regular meals. PONT hope this will be supported through our churches. • Providing mosquito nets to each family with small children to attempt to decrease the dreadful infant mortality - currently about 20% of under 5's in some villages. • To link the Royal Glamorgan Hospital with Mbale District Hospital so that Pontypridd’s consultants can take used equipment over and train their doctors in using it.

The soaring success of the idea has not only generated many millions of pounds, but also a slew of imitations. However, Good Gifts remains the catalogue committed to the principle of actually buying the gifts stated, rather than using the income for general purposes.

An estimated 1.4 million people are living with HIV/AIDS in Mozambique and 14 percent of these are children. It is projected that by 2010, there will be approximately 1.5 million orphans in Mozambique. Save the Children has created a home-based care programme as a natural entry point to reach vulnerable children before their parent or caretaker dies. By addressing the needs of children in a household with a terminally ill parent or caretaker, issues of vulnerability can be addressed long before a child becomes an orphan. Coping strategies for children can begin to be developed before the death of a parent or caretaker, reducing the economic, social, and psychological effect of the loss of the parent or caretaker.

Somalia Save the Children is starting a five-year programme to improve basic services in the Togdheer and Hiran regions. The work includes: rehabilitating the health infrastructure (clinics and treatment areas); David Bowie providing training and information on health issues for medical staff; efforts to control major preventable diseases; and continuing to promote a safe environment by supporting good quality water supply and sanitation facilities. The aim is to reduce maternal, infant and under-five mortality rates at least to the same level as those in neighbouring countries by 2009. The project will also be working to ensure that girls and young women have proper access to healthcare, which means addressing traditional discriminatory attitudes, early marriages, and the practice of female genital mutilation.

By giving mothers one drug dose before birth and one to the child directly after birth, 50% of babies will be born free of HIV. Unicef is working with partners to provide training for health workers and by the end of 2007 16 new PMTCT clinics will be added to the existing 44. This will save 3'500 babies from HIV/AIDS. Unicef will also work to help women living with HIV/AIDS get the right treatment for themselves and their children.

In 2004 Unicef opened the country's first children's day hospital specialising in paediatric AIDS. They will now continue to expand the capacity of doctors on clinical care for these children, as well as opening 28 new treatment clinics as well as develop their home-based care department. These clinics will serve up to 14'000 children living with HIV/AIDS.

ChildFund International is inspired and driven by the potential that is inherent in all children; the potential not only to survive but to thrive, to become leaders who bring positive change for those around them. What began as a modest effort to build and operate orphanages, has evolved into a global force working for children encompassing the globe. Child Fund works to improve the quality and structure of the teaching itself and is already training the school councils and community volunteers in school governance & child protection.

ChildFund's Mission • To help deprived, excluded and vulnerable children living in poverty have the capacity to become young adults, parents and leaders who bring lasting and positive change to their communities. • To promote societies whose individuals and institutions participate in valuing, protecting, and advancing the worth and the rights of children.

School Construction Project, Mozambique Funds raised by 21st Century Leaders will help finance the construction of a 2-room school in Mazivela, Mozambique which will help to educate some of the 781 children within the community. To date all the schools in the area have been built by parents from local materials which are prone to sever damage during heavy storms. During the strong winds the buildings become unsafe and have been known to collapse.

CARE’s mission is to create lasting change in poor communities and we put money where it is needed most. With more than 60 years’ practical and hands-on experience, our programmes tackle the deep-seated root causes of poverty, not just the consequences. This often involves working across a range of areas where people's needs are very tangible - provision of clean water, health services and teacher-training, for example. But it can also involve helping people to be masters of their own situation strengthening their ability to influence decision-makers or demand their rights to crucial services or resources. Women are at the heart of CARE's community based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of HIV, increase access to clean water & sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also deliver emergency aid to survivors of war & natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives. 21st Century Leaders contribution will go towards CARE's community based microfinance in the Nampula & Inhambane districts of Mozambique. Over the next 3 years, CARE aims to reach over 10'000 people in these 2 provinces, mainly targeting the rural population not served by previous financial markets and women's groups to help them overcome economic gender barriers.

Although we live in a world where nearly half (40%) the population is made up of children, many are experiencing tragic and unjust childhoods: • 143 million are orphans in 93 developing countries, • 246 million (of which 73 million are under the age of 10) are child labourers, of which 70% work in hazardous conditions • Tens of millions are street kids and 8.4 million are trafficked children, forced into debt bondage, slavery, prostitution, pornography, armed conflict or other illicit activities. Many are raising themselves, often due to HIV/AIDS or war, and this makes them vulnerable to abuse. Unsurprisingly, many children are growing up with serious emotional, mental and behavioural problems. The goal of Spirituality for Kids (SKF) is to introduce spirituality to children to help them regain control of their lives in a positive and empowering way.

Associação Saúde Criança The Associação Saúde Criança (ASC) was founded in 1991 by Dr. Vera Cordeiro - General Practice, specialized in Psychosomatic Medicine. It is a nongovernmental, non-profit, non-political and nonreligious organization. The constant admission/re-admission cycle of children treated at the Hospital da Lagoa, in Rio de Janeiro - who were released without having the necessary structure to continue their treatment at home - was cause for indignation among the health professionals in the hospital. Many children were re-admitted to the hospital in a more serious condition, sometimes leading to death. This scenario brought together doctors, nurses, and members of the civil society who decided to create this association. Saúde Criança's main objective is to restructure the families of those children, giving them means to achieve self-sustainability. In order to do so, a Plano de Ação Familiar - Family Action Plan (PAF) is developed. It comprehends five major areas: health, income, housing, education, and citizenship. Nowadays, Saúde Criança works with the vital support of around 140 volunteers and over 38 employees who care for 250 families and 850 children and adolescents. "Our dream is to see this action being reproduced throughout all public hospitals in Brazil. And, ideally, in all the areas of the world where this kind of problem occurs."

Supported by UK celebrities such as Rory Bremner, Ronnie Wood, Griff Rhys Jones, Joanna Lumley, Zoe Ball, Ben Fogle and Alistair McGowan, the charity's work to deliver direct sustainable conservation has been widely covered on television and in the media. HRH Prince William is Royal Patron to Tusk Trust. One of just two charities to which he is granting his Royal Patronage. Tusk's current portfolio of 30 field projects spread across 17 countries is designed not only to protect wildlife, particularly endangered species, but also to encourage poverty alleviation and sustainable development amongst many poor rural communities who co-exist with wildlife. The charity however contributes substantial funds towards the protection of many threatened species such as Elephant, Rhino, Cheetah, Chimpanzee, Mountain Gorilla, African Wild Dog, and even marine species such as the Turtle and Dugongs. As the ever expanding human population and its demand for more land brings it into increasing and often disastrous conflict with wildlife, Tusk, with its project field partners such as the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, has been at the forefront of establishing and promoting community driven wildlife programmes. Tusk's holistic approach to conservation recognises that the long term future for wildlife and Africa's other natural resources is dependant on sustainable human development. Therefore a number of the charity's initiatives incorporate valuable work to improve environmental education, security, healthcare, and responsible tourism. One such programme, the Northern Rangelands Trust, supported by Tusk has seen 1 million acres of community land recently come under a common conservation policy with initiatives that are directly benefiting 62,000 people and a significant wildlife population in northern Kenya.

Two of the biggest threats facing humanity today are climate change and global poverty. SolarAid helps to combat both, simply by bringing clean, renewable power to the poorest people in the world. Right now, two billion people have no access to electricity. They rely on burning fuels such as kerosene and wood for light and heat, which is highly toxic and expensive. Having solar power improves people's health, income and education. That's because solar power can enable poor people to cook food, pump clean water, run fridges, light homes, schools and hospitals, farm more effectively, and much more. Areas of work Education - In rural Africa, many schools and homes do not have electric lighting. This means children cannot study after dark. We urgently need funds to bring solar-powered lanterns to homes. This will enable school children to complete assignments and continue their education beyond primary level. Electricity in schools will mean access to the web - and a world of learning. Health - A poor family in Africa burns around 55 litres of kerosene a year to light their home and are forced to cook food inside. Respiratory diseases caused by toxic smoke kill 1.6 million women and children each year. That's one death every 20 seconds. Solar lanterns can replace kerosene, dramatically improving health. A solar cooker can be easily built from cardboard and waste reflective material, eliminating the need for indoor fires. Livelihoods - SolarAid enables some of the poorest people in the world to make and sell solar-powered products. We need your help to provide raw materials, and train people in finance and marketing, so they can set up small businesses. This means they can earn a living, so they can afford to buy food and medicines and to send their children to school.

The rate of deforestation for 2003 - 2004 reached 26'130km2 equal to 6 football fields being destroyed EVERY MINUTE. Forest destruction causes not only plant and animal loss, but also social turmoil & conflict with wars raging between loggers, ranchers and farmers for control of the land. Following its success in the protection of the middle and southern areas of the Amazon, Greenpeace is now working to form a protected "Green Wall' through the remaining areas of deforestation. They will do this by : • Putting pressure on the Federal & State governments to establish more protected areas & ensure sustainable development. • Closely monitoring & documenting the continued destruction of the rainforest & exposing those responsible to the world's media. • Working on the ground to bring to task illegal loggers, whilst also applying market pressure on companies involved in the trade of illegal timbers. • Working with local governments to encourage them not to use illegally logged Amazon timber for the construction of local buildings. • Working to halt the illegal destruction of the forest for soya crops and cattle ranching by highly aggressive and competitive agribusiness sector.

Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Programme In Association with:

Ozzy Osbourne

This programme, part of the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute at CedarsSinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, works to improve the lives of patients and their loved ones by providing at-home help, childcare, transportation, access to support groups and patient care services offered within Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Established by Sharon Osbourne following her own battle with colon cancer, the SOCCP’s long-term goal is to establish an ever-widening array of screening and educational opportunities. Inspired by the superlative care she received, Mrs. Osbourne joined forces with CedarsSinai's renowned surgeon Dr. Edward Phillips to harness key resources needed to help other colon cancer sufferers in the community. The Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program works closely with colon cancer experts and specialists at Cedars-Sinai to provide the community with access to effective, researchbased and compassionate treatments and care. Sharon Osbourne says, “Colon Cancer is a particularly invidious disease. If caught in time, the treatments can be highly effective - but they are not fun for anyone and can be out of reach financially for too many. When I saw people taking the public bus after chemotherapy treatment, I knew I had to get involved. When I successfully overcame colon cancer in 2003 I personally wanted to raise awareness of this horrific disease and established the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program at Cedars Sinai. My charity offers, among other things, colonoscopies and screenings to people without medical insurance (as well as those with minimal coverage), transportation to chemotherapy for patients and nursing consultation to those in need of assistance with their aftercare. I can't begin to tell you how it broke my heart to see other 'less-fortunate' patients who did not have the means for basic care or even someone to drive them to and from their chemotherapy appointments. We continue to be completely focused on prevention and for the caring of the patients themselves"

Friends in Ireland, the organisation which runs the Tooth Fairy Foundation, was created in June 2002 and was born out of a visit to South Africa in mid 2002 when the organisation saw, at first hand, orphaned and abandoned HIV AIDS babies being nursed and cared for by the Sisters of Nazareth in Cape Town - far removed from their families and communities. At that time, prior to the availability of anti-retroviral drugs, they were largely being nursed until their death. The work of the Sisters of Nazareth was only addressing the tiniest tip of an enormous iceberg and they expressed the urgent need to provide care within the township proper. HIV AIDS is rampant within the township and it was evident that there was need for a Hospice within the township - a place of peace & sanctuary where mothers in the last couple of weeks of their lives could take refuge and continue to have their babies with them to the end, and where babies and small children could be nursed to the end and have their mothers with them - an impossibility unless there was a hospice actually within the township itself. What was clear was, to be most effective, it must be within its own community where by its nature, it has to be small, compact and reasonably easy to run. Tooth Fairy Foundation’s work concentrates on building and supporting the running of hospice, day care centres for HIV positive children and houses to accommodate orphans in a homely and loving environment in deprived areas of South Africa. Based on the success of the combination of Hospice Orphan House and Day Care Centre, it was suggested at a recent EU conference on the pandemic in Africa that this could be a model to be replicated right throughout Africa. The Tooth Fairy Foundation has had many requests already to repeat this model. The funds raised from 21 Century Leaders will enable them to continue this important work. It is important to note that EVERY PENNY that is donated goes into the charity’s accounts and is used 100% by the charity projects directly. There are no administrative fees deducted whatsoever.

LIFEbeat – The Music Industry Fights AIDS is a national non-profit organization dedicated to reaching America’s youth with the message of HIV/AIDS prevention. LIFEbeat mobilizes the talents & resources of the music industry to raise awareness & to provide support to the AIDS community. LIFEbeat seeks to encourage young people to make informed decisions about their health. LIFEbeat achieves its mission through the implementation of programs such as the National Tour Outreach Program. In partnership with local AIDS Service Organizations across the country, LIFEbeat connects with thousands of young people each year on national music tours distributing condoms, testing referral information, offering prevention literature & safer sex information. LIFEbeat’s presence on these tours facilitated the distribution of about 75,000 pieces of HIV/AIDS prevention materials saving countless lives & educating young music fans across the country. Because LIFEbeat focuses most of its funds on executing its programs, a much needed technical support system has not been a reality – until now. With the money raised from the sale of 21st Century wristbands, LIFEbeat will be better able to offset the costs of a long overdue computer system upgrade. LIFEbeat plans to replace 10 computers, set up a new server and improve its network. New computers will bring faster access to information and will offer LIFEbeat employees a more stable environment in which to track and communicate with our hundreds of volunteers. A computer system upgrade means that LIFEbeat can open up a better dialogue between people who share the common goal of helping to bring the life saving message of HIV prevention to those most at-risk.

Thoughtful luminaries, global leaders, dignitaries, philanthropists and tycoons converge to innovate, perpetuate life changing and durable international development solutions. Their role as an umbrella charity, not only facilitates the flow of funding from donors to a balanced portfolio of programs, but also guarantees their objectivity as an independent organisation. This role comes with the responsibility to report on how lives have changed because of their giving. Their broad agenda of interdependent themes requires strategic layers of assistance so that all the areas of focus receive effective funding and awareness building. Many of the projects they support are in the developing world, as these programs yield the greatest social return on investment. A portion of Fortune Forum funds raised have been granted to small and somewhat overlooked charities and organisations. Smaller organisations tend to have the vision, concept, and determination to start new ground breaking initiatives, but often lack the resources to finance them. Unlike the well-funded and renowned organisations, these humble charities can utilise the funds in an efficient and more cost-effective way as they don’t have the burden of huge administrative costs, thereby affecting immediate development which can be delivered in a shorter time-span, becoming both measurable and tangible. Fortune Forum wishes to support this notion by assisting exceptional and well thought-out grassroots projects.

This project aims to further develop The Memory Project, a programme which helps parents to support their children to survive parental loss with less trauma.

Since its inception in 1983, CMRI has raised and leveraged matching funds to create over $50 million to fund pediatric research and education programs including collaborative projects with the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and the Children’s Hospital at the OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. Through the efforts of its volunteers and donors, they are able to finance significant research and education programs, recruit and retain nationally and internationally recognized physician-scientists to provide medical care of critically ill children, and train future pediatricians who will treat generations to come. We have four major areas of research: embryonic development and birth defects, cancer, nerve cell signalling, and gene therapy. One in 20 children is born with a congenital abnormality or genetic disease. By studying the key changes that occur during development we can identify when, where and how faults may occur. If small problems can be detected at this stage they could be prevented from becoming big problems, or treated to reduce their impact on our children’s quality of life.

Instead, they provide training so that people gain the skills and leadership to work together for change. They operate programs for an average of five to 10 years, and take pride that most of their experienced International Program staff and volunteers are local people from the countries in which they work. As World Neighbors moves to other areas of need, they leave behind a network of leaders with the skills to enable the community to undertake development initiatives on their own. Their approach is simple. In cooperation with their global neighbors, they: • Select the areas where they work on the basis of need and opportunity. • Listen to what the community have to say & what limits their success and establish a relationship of trust. • Help strengthen the recipient’s capacity to identify, analyse & solve their own problems using locally available resources and the simplest tools to do the job. • Try new ideas on a small scale. Stay practical to generate early enthusiasm & success. • Help document the results and apply lessons learned to improve programs. • Reinforce their capacity to maintain & multiply results and ongoing problem-solving processes by forming new partnerships and by coordinating with additional villages & local organizations. • Widen program impact by documenting and sharing the results and processes with larger-scale organizations, villages, networks, coalitions and governments to influence policies and actions.

We have also enabled 150 million people from around the globe to access HIV/AIDS information. 21st Century Leaders has specifically funded programmes in South Africa, helping deliver better healthcare, food and education opportunities to 70,000 children, as well as providing them with the psychosocial support they need to cope with the trauma around them. Supporting children also means supporting their families: that’s why EJAF also helps find sustainable sources of income for those caring for orphaned or vulnerable children. EJAF is building on a decade of its support for palliative and home based care before AIDS drugs were available to now scale up antiretroviral treatment for adults and children at provincial level. Young women are the most at-risk for acquiring HIV, so finding ways to lessen their vulnerability to the disease is another focus of EJAF funding in South Africa, as is supporting services targeting the most vulnerable communities.
