From the Salem International Site:

Salem Uganda is now urgently seeking funds to maintain its services throughout 2008.

In 2007, Salem Uganda, with the help of donations and sponsorship from friends, supported over 80 children both in the Children and Babies Home and though education and vocational training support. Other children and families were assisted with food and other basic requirements on account of their extreme poverty.

We are grateful for all the ongoing support received from sponsors and donors that is enabling these young people to achieve their goal of independence and the means by which to sustain themselves and their families. But the existing level of sponsorships and donations does not cover all these needs.

Since the founding of Salem Brotherhood Uganda Ltd by Gottfried Mueller in 1981 in the eastern District of Mbale, many hundreds of orphaned, abused and vulnerable children have benefited from care and a safe refuge in the Salem village. The majority of these have been resettled back to their villages of origin. Some, including the disabled, continue to need loving care and support. Children and babies continue to be received into the care of Salem.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
