TIJUANA, Mexico – No one is at greater risk for victimization than those who are alone and without resources in an unfamiliar locale. And unfortunately, it’s an all too common story on the streets of Tijuana.

Desperate and with seemingly nowhere to turn, recent deportees are easy targets for human traffickers. Among the most vulnerable are young women aged 15-35, who often have children of their own who can also become victims. All too often, they’re abducted and forced into modern-day slavery as soon as they cross the border.

Uiko serves with the Japanese Sign Language Bible team

Title: Meet Uiko

When Uiko was growing up, she faced the kind of oppression many Deaf people experience. In school, teachers discouraged her from signing — from using the language she learned as a child — and commanded her to speak Japanese instead.

Her first encounters with Christianity were similar. Uiko was told she needed to read the Japanese Bible. “[I thought] I was already happy,” she remembered. “And if Christianity just meant more rules, I wasn’t interested.”

Then Uiko joined the Japanese Sign Language (JSL) Bible team.

ASHOKA: Wildlife Protection - Uganda

Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka, the first female veterinary officer in Uganda, is showing how important it is to track and minimize the spread of diseases across three distinct populations: humans, domestic animals, and wild animals (gorillas). And how to do so. Despite the fact that it is well known that diseases can spread from animals to humans (zoonosis) and from humans to animals (anthroponosis), this fact has been largely ignored in part because public health and wildlife efforts don’t connect.

ASHOKA: Migration – Central America

Once a person decides or is pushed to leave home and go to a very different place, both the journey and the welcome can either be easy or dangerous and very hard. Ashoka Fellows are changing the odds all along this life path. In the words of Flaviano Bianchini, an Italian Fellow who lived the illegal migrant’s experience moving from Guatemala City to the U.S.

ASHOKA: Environment & Migration - India

Environmental decline and failure are forcing more and more people first to suffer and then to flee. Too little water or too much, soils that are either waterlogged or hard as rock and white with salt all drive farmers and their families into the cities. Climate change and bad management are making such pushes more and more common.

FOOD FOR THE POOR: Feeding the Hungry


Foor For The Poor/Haiti
Children from Haiti affected by the earthquake in 2010 called this orphanage home, even though it lacked a proper kitchen or safe place to eat.

Children have a brand new kitchen where their meals are cooked and the staff has more space to safely prepare meals as part of the Angels of Hope program supported by Food For The Poor donors.
