Foundation Sponsors

Sundance Family Foundation gave a $3,000 grant for UDS Backpacks for Peace Service Learning Project in 2015. This project taught 20 youth how to sew recycled plastic into backpacks. The finished backpacks were filled with school supplies and donated to young children at a local primary school.


Non-Profit Sponsors

Uniting Distant Stars appreciates our non-profit partners serving children and youth as follows:

youthrive, Minnesota Organization: Hosted and organized the Nobel Peace Prize Youth Forum and Being the Change Events since 2014. Our youth participated in these events via Google Hangout or Skype and connected with their peers in Minnesota and other states.

African Dream Academy (ADA), Liberia Organization: Provided recycled drinking water plastic sachets for the 2014 pilot backpack project and 2015 Backpacks for Peace Service Learning Project. Both innovative projects helped youth learn how to sew and reuse discarded material.
