  The Yayasan Kemanusiaan Ibu Pertiwi (YKIP) organization or the Humanitarian Foundation for Mother Earth was started as a response to the Bali bombings in 2002. YKIP's founders were business people, doctors, officials and volunteers who assisted during the 2002 bomb crisis. It soon became evident that in order to accommodate the tons of medical supplies and monetary donations from well-wishers around the world, a transparent and responsible organization needed to be established. YKIP received endorsements from the Australian Ambassador to Indonesia, the diplomatic community in Bali, and the Governor of Bali.

The founders set up and helped to organize the Bali Recovery Group which coordinated the work of the NGOs in the first six confusing months after the blast. All of YKIP's projects in 2002 and 2003 were related to the direct victims of the blast. Based on the success of the initial projects in 2003, YKIP has turned its focus to Health and Education issues--those projects that can improve the lives of the poor who live on Bali. YKIP's role is to raise money, within a trustworthy and transparent system, for targeted projects on Bali and provide easy access to institutions and individuals.

  FreeRice.com hosts a vocabulary game in which for each word you get right, FreeRice donates twenty grains of rice through the UN World Food Program. FreeRice has two goals:
 1. Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
 2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
Improving your vocabulary can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself. Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you can help provide. This is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors who advertise on the site.

Knowing a few Khmer words will help you earn some respect while in Cambodia.
The word for 'no' is pronounced 'Awt Tay'
If you are male 'yes' is pronounced 'baht' (as in the sound of a sheep followed by a hard T)
If you are female 'yes' is pronounced 'jah' (as in the first part of 'jar')
The word for 'thank you' is pronounced 'aw-koon' (sounds a little like raccoon)
