Hello everyone & welcome to our money pot! This money will be used specifcally to make the retirement home sustainable. The primary focus is on installing solar panels to ensure the home has a clean, long lasting energy supply. Pakistan's "third-gender" people, or khawaja sehras as they identify, are often rejected by their families and can have no-one to look after them in old age. Third-gender people are 50 times more likely to be living with HIV than someone from the general population in Pakistan - it's believed almost 5% of the community are HIV-positive. Now, 'Guru' Ashee, an activist and a respected member of the community has opened a retirement home providing dignity for residents in their final years. The retirement home has been eight years in the making. It opened in 2019 and provides accommodation, medication and food for 40 older third-gender people. It's part of a bigger project that will eventually incorporate a medical centre and additional housing. Ashee's retirement home allows third gender people to spend time together in a private space where they are accepted. Food and shelter are the starting point but the fact that older third-gender people can be themselves and feel valued is truly revolutionary. For more detail see: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/stories-48707042 The BBC documentary 'Our World : The Best Pakstani Transgender Retirement Home' is available on the @BBCNews channel and on @BBCiplayer The retirement home has also been featured in @AttitudeMag @Dawn_News and other news outets All funds raised will be sent to Naz Male Health Alliance, Pakistan's primary LGBTQ NGO.

ENGLISH VERSION Nao fio? We are Base A team, a group of young architects and students, who understand architecture as a tool for social transformation. In the field of cooperation and training, we carry out activities related to building, rehabilitation and urban planning from the point of view of sustainable and participatory development. In the last 4 years we have worked in 3 different projects with the NGO "Amics del Senegal pel Bages", in all cases to improve education and health with public equipments. Meeting of the volunteers and the school committee of the Cabrousse high school, SenegalOurong school project, Senegal This particular project aims to strengthen Gagué Chérif's primary education, Senegal. Gagué Cherif is a small town located within the department of Foundiougne. It has about 800 inhabitants, mainly Muslims and people from Serer culture that mainly live from fishing and cattle breeding. Students taking water from the water well of the school The municipal primary school is a public center with quite poor infrastructure due to the little involvement of the ministry. Currently, it has a total of 252 students, 128 girls and 124 boys between 6 and 12 years old. These are distributed in 8 classrooms but 3 of them are in a precarious situation. In this place there were two unusable classrooms, due to the poor condition they were in. The pathologies of the building caused it to be dangerous to enter inside. Its poor construction quality caused leaks of moisture, rot of materials, severe cracks and partial fall of the rooftop. For this reason, the first intervention was to demolish these two classrooms, which endangered the lives of students.Demolishment of the old classrooms The idea now is to build two classrooms with local and sustainable materials, to replace the classrooms in ruins and to be able to teach classes without time or security limitations and also to be able to accommodate new students. The population participates in the community construction work of the school both in the design and execution stages of the work, as they have already done in previous works. In addition, activities will be carried out to reinforce the awareness of the importance of educational follow-up. At this point, the project is underway and that is why the whole foundation has already been able to be completed. Now we have had to stop the works for lack of financial funds. As soon as we have them, we will continue our work! Foundation process of the classrooms To make possible our project the ASEB asociation has the colaboration from: - Base-A Asociation- Two volunteers experts on the social camp- One volunteer expert on agronomy engineering The total cost is 22.000€ and this is going to be given by: - Manresa Council: 8.000€ - COAC: 4.000€ - UPC: 8.000€ - Crowdfunding: 2.000€ Current view of the project REWARDS Besides collaborating with the project ...

En el recinto había dos aulas inservibles, por el mal estado en el que se encontraban, hasta el punto de que las patologías del edificio hacían que entrar fuera peligroso. Su mala calidad constructiva causaron filtraciones de humedad, putrefacción de los materiales, graves grietas y la caída parcial de la cubierta. Por este motivo, la primera intervención fue derribar estas dos aulas, que ponían en peligro la vida de los estudiantes.

Además, se harán actividades para reforzar la concienciación sobre la importancia del seguimiento educativo.

To the people of Shrewsbury. As we all know Thomas cook has ceased trading on 23/09/2019. This has left the brilliant staff in Shrewsburys branch without jobs. I used their store on a regularly and everytime we went in the staff were fantastic. Like all of the other Thomas Cook employees across the world are the victims to all this, who had worked hard in colleges or universities to learn their trade. Unfortunately I cant help other staff, in other stores but together we can help Shrewsbury store. I would like to earn as much as we evenly distribute this money out between the staff from shrewsbury store so we can give them a great Christmas. Thank you everybody and I hope you can help

Help us raise €15,000 to enhance,upscale and utilization of banana fibers which are majorly found in banana waste. To change lives of local women and girls in rural communities of Uganda. Create jobs opportunities for youth out of banana waste to alleviate in rural communities of Uganda. Supporting local community can bring a whole host of benefits. Lending a helping hand can help you make new friends, learn new skills, advance your career. Most importantly, give something back to local community its always honorable,looking forward to join us.WHO ARE WE? Mawejje Creations is social enterprise which aims at developing affordable banana fiber products to reduce banana waste, enabling matokee(banana) growers earn extra income to sustain themselves while creating jobs opportunities for youth and women in rural communities of Uganda through banana fiber production, incubation programs, hands-on skills training. We envision to be the leading company in Uganda and Africa improving livelihood of (matokee)banana growers through recycling banana waste into products of value. At Mawejje Creations we believe in a team where everyone achieves more and no one is above the other.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfC4TJffkJA THE PROBLEM Over 10 million hectares of Banana plantation, with an average of 1500 plants per hectare, exist in more than 160 countries globally,Uganda is the second largest producer of bananas after India with about 9 million tons produced annually,creating tons of waste in form of stem and stocks, which have been left over to decompose and rot hence emitting a huge amount of methane gas and carbon dioxide. These emissions have a negative impact on the environment, which increases global warming every year. Every ton of banana waste emits, on average, a half-ton of carbon dioxide per year.Evidence reveals that 7out of 10 youth are unemployed yet the services and industrial sector have not created enough jobs for the burgeoning youthful labor force,8out of 10 women practice agriculture with bananas as main crop but still leave below poverty line.THE SOLUTION Mawejje Creations breaks down the barriers to access and utilization of adding value to banana waste,we directly engage banana growers in chain of production as they extract banana waste to get fibers,sale them to us in due course they earn extra income to sustain themselves while creating jobs opportunities for disadvantaged youth and women in rural communities of Uganda through banana fiber production, hands-on skills training, developing affordable banana fiber products to reduce banana waste to have free carbon emission environment in Uganda and the entire global. WHAT WE HAVE DONE,CHALLEGES ENCOUNTERED & WHY! We managed to work with Mukono banana grower's community,carried awareness community leaders on how to extract fibers from wasted banana stems, with positive results that excited them from discovering precious material and innovations developed from the banana waste they had been dumping. However, on training them and implementing the solution with expected positive results we found unbearable challenges whereby we could not acquire the larger extractor machinery to produce more quantities of fibers,training space which caused hardships for the women and girls who were involved in the training.This pushed us into more research on waste extraction, with modern skills, equipment for quality and energy reservation; leading the entire team join a one year incubation program in banana fiber extraction to learn and acquire various behaviors of banana fibers and new skills of improving our business operations. Our determination later won us an entrepreneurship scholarship in applied social innovations further mastering the idea to higher standards. I thus look forward for this crowdfunding. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWtaaehroT0&t=12s WHAT WE ARE DOING?We are raising money to support us in purchasing production machines and place for training youth and women in rural communities of Uganda to provide hands-on skills. We aim to directly provide skills to at least 200 of banana growers will know how turn banana waste into fiber by 2020.500 lives of women and girls in rural communities of Uganda being positively impacted through our programs by 2020 Having created 500 hundreds jobs opportunities out of banana waste to alleviate in rural communities of Uganda by 2020.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIthIqIqKpw WHY MACHINES AND SPACE?During the trainings and awareness campaign we had positive results but we found unbearable challenges whereby we could not acquire the larger extractor machinery to produce more quantities of fibers and enough space which caused hardships for the women and girls who were involved in the training. HOW WILL THE MONEY BE USED? We are looking for a total of €15,000 to fund us in purshasing production machines and affording enough space. Here's the specific breakdown of how the funds will be used: A brand-new machines and fabricated banana fiber extractor(roll crasher). • 1Roll Crusher = €3000• 2Drying Chambers = €1000• Digital weigh scale = €600• Cutting& 2Spliting equipment = €4003Weaving machines= €50003Tailoring machines= €150012(months)Training space= €3500 RETURN ON THE FUNDS! * Environmental impact: with target of extracting 2tons of banana waste in entire country by 2020* Social Impact: We have reached 200 farmers,created 500 jobs for youth & 500 lives of women and girls in rural communities of Uganda being positively impacted through our programs by 2020* Financial: We anticipate revenue of €4000 by 2020 HOW CAN YOU HELP? Each donation is capable of making a change in the lives of low-income women and youth living in Uganda’s rural communities. We understand that not everyone may be in a position to help monetarily, so we would truly appreciate if you could share the campaign and help us spread the word about this important and innovative cause and approachAny donations are extremely valuable and we thank you as Mawejje Creations and the people it gets to.

Weʼre raising £5,000 to help fund a garden renewal for the elderly residents of Goodfellow Way in Dover UK. We would like to build raised beds to make it easier for thoes who have physical limitations to enjoy a little gardening again. We also need seating and shade and maybe even a barbecue and to repair the fencing. The garden is is little more than a bare patch of grass at the moment, but it is still used as a meeting place to chat for those able enough and have pets. We are trying to develope the garden so it benefits the reidents of Goodfellow Way. Goodfellow Way is a development of 25 flats for the elderly, many with disabilities and serious illnesses. Local council cutbacks mean the garden is in need of a major makeover, at the moment it has one small rickety bench and a handfull of broken old tools and no power tools at all.

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!Please HelpThere is a proposal to build an incinerator north of Horsham onthe current Re-cycling plant. The proposal was originally rejected by WSCC, however the company have appealed against this judgement.The No Incinerator for Horsham Group is now having to raise money for Legal Costs to stop this appeal going ahead. This will stop the build of this massive incinerator (180,000Te per annum) capacity onto this site. It will not just take waste from the Horsham area but will take the industrial waste materials from all across the southern counties.Due to lack of land, a double height building with a chimney the same height as Big Ben (96m)is proposed The existing chimney of Wienenberger brickworks is a mere 26.5m, this incinerator chimney will be some 3.5 times this height, with fumes predicted not only in Horsham but also Crawley and Surrounding Areas. We have to stop this for our community and the environment.Please Help.

Hi there, My family is having a hard time making it to the end of the month. Unfortunately my father has not found work for 10 years and my mother is making extreme sacrifices working 7 days a week, from morning to evening, to be able to keep 3 children.She has never had a vacation, neither visiting the museums in the city. She will soon turn to fifty and I would be very honored if I could raise some money and give her a short vacation. I sincerely thank everyone who will contribute.
