A boost for nonprofits

first_imgAddressing an audience of elected officials, University leaders, and members of the Allston-Brighton community, Harvard President Drew Faust thanked representatives from several nonprofit organizations for teaching others “all the important things” in life.“The Harvard Allston Partnership Fund is an important part of Harvard’s commitment to the Allston-Brighton community,” Faust said. “But it’s you, and the nonprofit organizations you represent, who take the lead in turning our contribution into meaningful projects and programs. You expand people’s horizons and help them exceed their expectations, and we thank you for being our partners in this effort.”The gathering on May 5 at the Josephine A. Fiorentino Community Center at Charlesview in Brighton marked the distribution of HAPF grants, with 11 nonprofits in the Allston-Brighton community receiving support totaling $100,000. Distributed among groups such as the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston, the Boston Children’s Chorus, the Gardner Pilot Academy, and the Fishing Academy, the grants will back a variety of initiatives for residents, from educational and arts programming to English literacy classes.Randi Freundlich, director of community programs at the Family Nurturing Center, said the funding her organization received will help new immigrant parents provide the best care and resources for their children.“While our parents are diverse in race, language, culture, and economic status, all of them care deeply about their children and their children’s healthy development,” she said. “Without this kind of support, we couldn’t do this work, and we thank you.”Since its inception in 2008, HAPF has provided $600,000 in grants to 21 local organizations, supporting programs for more than 4,300 residents of the Allston-Brighton community. The fund, which was established by Harvard University and the City of Boston, works in collaboration with the Allston community. Harvard recently extended its commitment to HAPF for an additional 10 years.“The HAPF has a long history of supporting community programs that deliver services to the neighborhood’s residents,” said Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “I’m pleased to see the variety of programs that will receive funding this year and have an impact on a wide cross-section of residents.”Felix Arroyo, chief of Boston’s Health and Human Services Department, and State Rep. Kevin Honan were also on hand to help present the awards.“Harvard is thrilled to once again be able to help local organizations that are making a real difference in lives of folks in our community,” said Kevin Casey, the University’s acting vice president of public affairs. “From literacy classes to mentoring programs, from play groups to summer camp scholarships, the 11 organizations being honored today are on the front lines providing positive, tangible change in the neighborhood. HAPF is a terrific example of the good that can happen when we work together to enhance, enrich, and enliven our community.”last_img read more

Nicaraguan Army Conducts Operation Green Gold to Protect the Environment

first_imgBy Dialogo March 06, 2012 Since January 5, the Nicaraguan Army’s Ecological Battalion (BECO) has been carrying out Operation Green Gold to protect and conserve that Central American nation’s chief natural reserves. As a result of the operation, which is focused on reducing indiscriminate logging in the country’s major natural reserves, BECO achieved its first victory with the successful seizure of more than 110,000 linear feet of valuable wood cut by illegal loggers in the Wawashang Reserve, located in the country’s South Atlantic autonomous region, according to the Nicaraguan Army’s website. The operation represents Central America’s first established effort to look for a military-backed solution to the effects of climate change, according to a report by BBCMundo.com. It was conducted jointly with teams from the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources, as well as from the National Forest Institute and the Nicaraguan Environmental Attorney General’s Office, with the support of Air Force and Navy troops assigned to the district. “There are unscrupulous people who take advantage of the economic limitations of the people in this region, and in the end, it’s foreigners who benefit, while the local communities are left with indiscriminate deforestation,” Colonel Néstor López told the BBC. BECO units are also working on raising awareness by holding meetings with the local population to familiarize them with the work done by the Nicaraguan Army, as well as to show them their understanding and readiness to support the efforts to conserve the country’s natural heritage carried out by state institutions, according to the national daily El Nuevo Diario’s website. BECO was formed recently, after the Nicaraguan Army identified in 2010 the need to create a military unit dedicated to protecting the country’s environment. As a consequence, the Ecological Battalion was formed in late November, in order to carry out missions to protect Nicaraguan reserves and protected areas, including the preservation, conservation, and restoration of the environment and natural resources.last_img read more

Gary Neville slams Arsenal’s ‘uncoachable’ players after Unai Emery’s sacking

first_imgGary Neville says Sokratis and David Luiz are ‘uncoachable’ (Getty Images)‘The recruitment at Arsenal has been strange for a number of years, they haven’t got it right in a number of areas.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘There’s two things they need to do – get their recruitment right but second put someone in place who can live through these difficult times and transition from a difficult moment to a good moment.‘You think of the job Mauricio Pochettino did at Tottenham it wasn’t the best squad when he took over but he was able to manipulate that squad for not a lot of money into something very good. Essentially Arsenal need that same type of person who is capable of doing that.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Freddie Ljungberg has been named as Arsenal’s new interim manager (Getty Images)‘That will be something I’m sure they are working hard to resist. The main thing the Arsenal board need to do is ensure they are not sacking another manager in 12-18 months, then sacking another, because it just will not work.‘It’ll cost them more money, not just in sacking the manager and their respective [coaching] teams, but also in terms of recruitment idea and the players who are brought in.‘I’d imagine a new manager now will come in and want to wipe out half of that dressing room. That costs money, and the reality is they want to bring their own players in, and they should do as well.
