Non-Profits Worth Supporting

AAAS - Center for Science Diplomacy
The Center is guided by the over-arching goal of using science and scientific cooperation to promote international understanding and prosperity. It approaches this goal by providing a forum for scientists, policy analysts, and policy-makers through which they can share information and explore collaborative opportunities. We are particularly interested in identifying opportunities for science diplomacy to serve as a catalyst between societies where official relations might be limited, and to strengthen civil society interactions through partnerships in science and technology.

Most of KASM's programs in North Korea are directed toward emergency relief in food (maize) for famine victims, with additional shipments of fertilizer, medicine, clothing, and other supplies.

In 2001, KASM funded the delivery of about US$500,000 worth of sneakers donated by Nike with the assistance of Mercy Corps International.
