A dog refuge that's also a dog paradise
This refuge called "Land of the Strays" is a privately-funded, volunteer-run organisation in Costa Rica, where they bathe, feed, and exercise the 900 dogs they house by guiding them on scenic walking tours that are free and open to the public. You can visit for interest or to adopt- there is no pressure as they don't kill dogs that are not adopted. http://www.trueactivist.com/the-land-of-the-strays-houses-900-free-roaming-adoptable-dogs-and-its-paradise/

A writing competition for indigenous students that they can share with non indigenous classmates
This competition has been designed to encourage Indigenous Australian students in Kindy to Year 12 studying in NSW. The Group section of the competition is offered to support Aboriginal students working together with their classmates to develop a shared story, poem or play. The award is named after Patrick White as he was one of Australia?s most accomplished writers and an avid supporter of the advancement of Indigenous Australian youth. He was the first Australian writer to receive a Nobel Prize for Literature. http://www.aec.org.au/wordpress/patrick-white-award/
