Launching the 20/20 Campaign


To mark Universal Children’s Day, Each Inc. is very proud to launch the 20/20 Campaign: An innovative effort, starting the week of November 20, 2013, to positively impact 20 lives, with the collective power of your support.

THE YEAR – It’s been an exciting second year for Each Inc. and our 20/20 vision to provide technology support to organizations working with vulnerable children, globally.  After sharing a demo of our data management systems in East Africa last year, we were encouraged by the excitement it generated.  Securing funding for a full pilot, however, has been a challenge.  Happily, we are about to begin the first pilot of our digital case management tool with a client non-profit organization in Guatemala.

THE PROJECT – This pilot project includes customizing technology to provide an improved data management system for social workers to use as they move young children out of the largest government orphanage in Guatemala City (the ‘City of Children’) into foster families, who will provide each of them a safe family environment.   The toxic stress created in an institutionalized child, especially a young one whose brain is rapidly developing, is a serious health issue that has destructive long-term consequences.  Any child suffering the lack of a consistent caregiver with whom they can bond may experience severe developmental delays, and a lack of family support makes them more vulnerable to violence, exploitation, trafficking, and crime as they grow into adulthood. Early intervention and placement into family care can prevent abuse and dramatically improve the life prospects for each child.

THE NEED – As our first major project, this is a watershed opportunity for Each Inc..  However, in order to take advantage of this amazing opportunity, Each Inc. needs to fundraise $20,000 by the end of 2013. During the first year of the two year grant, our target is to build a customized tool that will facilitate the placement of 20 children under three years of age into foster families.  Currently, no formal foster care system exists in Guatemala, so while the goal number may seem small, it would be huge milestone, both for these specific children and the country as a whole.  The technology we build to help place these 20 children will be the first step in better protecting all vulnerable children in Guatemala using new technology easily replicable for similar projects elsewhere.

THE EVENT – November 20th is Universal Children’s Day and we’re celebrating by launching our 20/20 Campaign for 2013.  We invite you to donate toward our work with 20 children in Guatemala in $20 increments.  That could be $20 per month or one time gifts of $20, $200, or $2,000 to reach our $20,000 goal by the end of this year.  It’s a 20/20 vision for each individual child, plus an aggregate 20/20 vision for all children living in adversity.  It’s a big vision, but together we can achieve it.  Join us!

TO GIVE – Each Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and interested donors can give by electronic check or credit card via our online giving portal (administered by the National Christian Foundation) on our website (www.eachinc.org/engage).  Alternatively, you can also send a check made payable to Each Inc. directly to the address below:
