Our Projects »
Southeast Ohio Parent
Appalachian Ohio's most trusted partner in parenting. Southeast Ohio Magazine was a trial project for EDUCATE Foundation, Inc. after our offices moved from Oregon to Ohio. We created the only parenting magazine ever offered in this Appalachian region and reached 9,000 homes each month. The goal was to provide free, educational parenting information, edited by local experts in child development, to 3 of the poorest counties in Ohio. Vinton, Athens, Meigs Counties. Southeast Ohio Parent Magazine also offered the only comprehensive family friendly events calendar in Southeastern Ohio. The project was closed in 2009 due to the overwhelming success of The Empower Campaign project. We simply didn't have enough person power to keep it going! Southeast Ohio Magazine is currently for sale as an independent income generating business. If you are an eager entrepreneur looking for a great new business venture, check out our media kit, view a sample issue, and contact us.
The Empower Campaign
The Empower Campaign is a holistic, community and school based initiative designed to help children, including those that are orphaned or vulnerable, receive an education in Uganda. We accomplish this through a four step approach with our partner communities. 1. Provide a safe and sound place to attend school by building and reconstructing debilitated schools. 2. Provide educational materials for students attending school. 3. Provide one meal per day for all children attending school. 4. Provide access to health care and health care information at school. Since 2004 we have helped educate over 2,000 children in 3 districts in Uganda. We completed the construction of Bigodi Primary School in July 2011. Visit our main page.
