Kids Hope USA
Kids Hope USA is a mentorship program for at risk youth. The mentorship program partners with a church to provide an hour a week of mentorship. Studies have shown that reliable, caring adult relationships can help impact the most at-risk students. The program is offered at no cost to schools and the schools select which students participate. Ess Tec, Inc. has been a proud sponsor of Kids Hope since 1995.
Living Water International
Living Water provides communities with clean water. Safe water removes the single heaviest burden from the lives of the poorest people in our world and at least 663 million people lack access to safe drinking water. That’s why at Ess Tec, Inc., we’ve committed to providing Living Water International with drinking spoons to measure salt and sugar. Once Living Water provides running water, residents still need to sanitize the water before they drink it. We’re proud to partner with Living Water to provide the spoons to measure salt and sugar, granting access to safe drinking water to people throughout the world.
“Living Water International and Ess Tec Inc. have an amazing partnership of serving the thirsty through the provision of Oral Re-hydrations Spoons (ORS). Our health education programs utilize these life-saving spoons as tools to teach a simple method of oral re-hydration through a solution of clean water, salt and sugar in the right mixture can keep a person from becoming de-hydrated. The ORS spoons provide the exact measurements of each element. De-hydration due to water borne illness causes the most death in children under the age of five around the world and when an opportunity came to help stop this cycle, Ess-Tec stepped up to make a difference. Ess-Tec employees give of their time producing ORS spoons so families throughout our water program areas have access to this special spoon. Thank you Ess-Tec for your partnership in serving the thirsty around the world.”
Grant Me Hope
Grant Me Hope is a marketing initiative that is working hard to make the public aware of the needs of our nation’s foster children. Grant Me Hope does this by producing videos of foster children available for adoption and airing them during the newscast of our partnering television stations and posting on social media in the hopes of finding them an adoptive home. They focus on older children who are in danger of aging out; those in sibling groups with a desire to be adopted together and also those with special needs. Grant me Hope’s mission is to find adoptive homes for foster children before they age out of the foster system alone facing homelessness.
Grant Me Hope’s three goals are:
- to educate the public about the needs of foster children
- recruit more foster families to limit the number of foster children in institutions
- get as many children adopted as possible
