World Wildlife Federation To support the implementation of a biodiversity education program for Alaskan and Russian Bering Sea coastal communities – strengthening awareness among Alaska Native youth in the project area of the critical role they play as stewards and beneficiaries of the Bering Sea’s unique natural heritage.  The proposed project is designed to promote ecological and cultural understanding, while allowing Alaska Native children to interact and correspond with their neighbors in their Alaska villages and across the Bering Strait – enlarging their worldview and teaching leadership in a highly relevant manner.Due to “unusual hurdles associated with obtaining visas and making travel arrangements” and other factors, the “Treasures Across the Bearing Sea” learning summit is being replaced.

A workshop in partnership with Audubon, Alaska is scheduled for early May 2004 in Petropovlosk, Russia, focusing on the Pribilof and Commander Island participants exploring and addressing issues common to both island systems and communities.  Issues include: status, trends and conservation of northern fur seal populations, status and population trends and conservations of seabird colonies, preventing the introduction and spread of invasive species (e.g., rats, reindeer, aquatic species introduced at port), among others.

Hope-Sunrise Library The program would be run in conjunction with the Hope School (20 students with one teacher, Lenny Yoter, handling a basic K-12curriculum) and would include parent/community involvement.  Kenai Peninsula Borough does not allow the community to obtain grants for the schools.

Sponsor a Village School through ChildReach, an Internationally established organization.  We have chosen to do this through the library so we can have an arts and multi-cultural program for extra curricular classes for not only the students, but also our community members.

Sponsorship of the school would include school supplies, projects, nutritional and health needs.  ChildReach is good at keeping the letters flowing between students and updates on Projects.  The Hope/Sunrise Libraries Mission is to collect, preserve and make accessible resources to help others with research in building knowledge, keeping in mind that knowledge evolves and so must the library.

$4,000.

Seward Unitarian Univeralists To develop a two-week summer camp in Seward that would present the ten basic principals for fighting hate using tools created by the Southern Poverty Law Center, using tools for demonstrating tolerance, and celebrating diversity, to meet the challenge of providing an opportunity for young people from Alaska and other parts of the world to come together to learn how to stand up to the hate mongers, to promote tolerance and inclusion.  Using art, drama, music, dance, writing, story telling and exploration of other countries geography, youth, ages thirteen through eighteen, will lean what other countries are doing, or not ding to fight hatred and discrimination.  They will take away tools to contribute positive efforts, and begin to take action on their own or through existing organizations.
