Al Otro Lado: We are a bi-national, direct legal services organization serving indigent deportees, migrants, and refugees in Tijuana, Mexico. The bulk of our services are immigration-related. However, the needs of the people we serve are diverse, so we also coordinate with attorneys and non-legal professionals in a range of areas such as family law, labor law, criminal law (particularly post-conviction relief), and employment law. We also assist families with aspects of reunification in Mexico when it has been determined by U.S. authorities that it is in the best interest of the child to live with his or her parent in Mexico. We work with non-custodial deported parents to ensure their rights as parents are protected in the United States family court system.

Genesys Works: Across America, millions of young people are shut out of today’s workforce due to lack of relevant skills and work experience.

By combining skateboarding with creative, arts-based education, we give children the opportunity to become leaders for a better world.

We provide safe spaces where children can have fun, build their skills and confidence and break down social barriers by making new friends.

Breaking Ground: We envision a Cameroon in which communities are independently able to address their most basic, pressing needs. This can only happen by empowering motivated Cameroonian communities with the resources they need to achieve their own solutions. We seek out these communities after they have independently prioritized a need, collectively decided upon a solution to that need, and have begun actively working towards achieving that solution, but whose progress is held up by a lack of funding.
Ewaso Lion Project: Right now, Kenya’s predators are in trouble. Our lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas and wild dogs are facing more threats than ever before, such as loss of habitat, an ecosystem under huge pressure and life-threatening conflict with humans. Our predator conservation efforts span the three primary areas with robust carnivore populations in Kenya.

Our mission is to overcome these barriers, preparing the youth of East Tibet for their bright futures while preserving their unique cultural heritage.
