Future of Taru 2019 Christmas Appeal - Gift a Disadvantaged Child a Book for Christmas

Hello everyone & welcome to this fundraiserWith just 1-click you can help Future of Taru Academy equip our classrooms with much needed text-books. This will make an amazing difference to both our students and our dedicated teachers in 2020. A Gift of Books for Christmas With Christmas getting closer, with your help, we can get closer to providing the children at Future of Taru Academy with much needed text books. If you’re looking for ideas on how you might support disadvantaged children this Christmas, please help us buy text books for our children and you will know your money is going towards something useful. - Not only for Christmas but all through 2020 and years after. All money received will go towards buying books for these boys and girls who are so keen to learn. This will also massively help our teachers who are dedicated to helping these children realise their potential. The Future of Taru is a school in Taru, Kenya, and over the past year the school has grown rapidly that it now has over 200 pupils. We therefore need to build on our educational resources to keep on top of this rapid expansion. Currently we do not have enough books and our teachers are having to use blackboards most of the time to share information with children. If you are like me and love books, can you imagine the difference it will make for each child to be able to leaf through the pages of a text book in each subject they study? Our aim is to provide the children with all the textbooks they need. The average cost of each text book is £5 (6500 Kenyan shillings). There are six key subjects studied in each class and children sit three to a table. Our hope is to provide at least one book for each subject for each desk. This would also be a big support for teachers as this will free-up time they spend copying information onto a blackboard so they can spend more time with each individual child.  We have over 200 children now attending Future of Taru academy and all children come from very poor backgrounds in Kenya. With funds we have put aside for this particular project, we have calculated we will need around another £600 to fulfil our aim. Your donation will help supply high quality learning materials to pupils of all ages who need them. * Please give however much you want. Every little helps and is gratefully received.* All payments are 100% secure and go towards this project* Thank you! Future of Taru is a Registered UK Charity No. 1184640

Greek Alchemy

Greek Alchemy

The origins of chemistry is lost in the mists of time. These sources are technical and magical at once. When Greek civilization is founded, and are known as copper, bronze and iron, gold and silver ornaments are used to lead and easy to work estálejos be ignored. It knows how to get stains (purple murex), to fuse the enamel and from remote antiquity, is extracted cinnabar (red sulphide), a liquid bright as silver, very heavy and has all the properties of a metal. The first Greek philosophers, whose method of approach to most problems was teóricoeamiento of most of the problems was theoretical and speculative, concluded that the earth was formed by a few basic elements or substances. Empedocles of Agrigento, around 430 BC stated that such items were four: earth, air, water and fire. A century later, Aristotle assumed that the sky was a fifth element, ether. The Greeks believed that the substance of the earth were formed by different combinations of these elements in different proportions. The Greeks raised the question of whether matter was continuous or discontinuous, ie whether it could be divided and subdivided indefinitely in an ever more fine dust, or if, at the end of this process will reach a point where particles were indivisible. Leucippus of Miletus and his disciple Democritus of Abdera (ca 450 BC, source http://www.ibuyanessay.com/pay-for-essay/) insisted that the second hypothesis was true. Democritus gave these particles called atoms (ie, not divisible). Even suggested that some substances were composed of different atoms or combinations thereof. I also thought that a substance could become another to Ocute; to become another by ordering the atoms differently. If we consider that it is only a subtle hypothesis, it is surprising the accuracy of this intuition. Although the idea may seem obvious today, was very far from that at the time of Plato and Aristotle rejected. In 600 BC the Greek philosopher Thales of Miletus discovered a fossil resin discovered on the shores of the Baltic, which we call and they called amber elektron had the property of attracting feathers, threads and lint when rubbed with a piece of skin . The alchemical thought of ancient Greece was based on theories and speculations, and very few times in the experiment. Many of the Greek scriptures were preserved issue and raised the study of this science in the Middle Ages.

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!With just 1-click you can help a student cover school fees and expenses* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com? It's easy & transparent!Thank you! My life story in Morocco‌I was born in a far and extremely poor suburb. The village in which  I was  born had no electricity and no water service. My family used canddles for electricity. I used those candles many time to arrange my bed at night, or to do my homework of the elementary school. And there is no water service in the village. I used to ride a Donkey for forty minutes to another village to bring water.In my village, children were forced to work before even going to elementary school. Personally, I worked in Farms and  took care of cattle( sheep, goat) before and after the elementary school. I was so forced to work before I get in elementary School by my family without any sympathy. And  when I made  mistakes in the work, they will punish me severely by beating me using hard steaks or ropes. Sometimes, they beat me because  I wanted to learn a new skill. They beat me many times because I went to the lake in the village and I tried to learn how to swim. In my work( when I was a child) in the farm, agriculture and cattle, I had many work accidents, and they didn't take me to the hospital because the hospital is far away and the family is poor and ignorant. In that work my life was at danger in Every minute because the place where I was working was isolated and I was surrounded by poisonous insects. Now I'm almost 22 and, Believe it or not, I worked 18 years in farms, in Agriculture, in construction of houses and with cattle in hard and dangerous conditions. I worked to pay for my food, clothes, shelter,  and for my studies. I studied because I believed if I study, I will get a good job and earn a good living, But unfortunately, in Morocco, your degrees don't matter.  I got my first baccalaureate degree in  physics and I went searching for a job, and they told me if you want to work, you must have connections besides your degrees and diplomas. After that I continued working in the terrible village and decided to go to the university to improve myself intellectually and try to have other chances in life. I studied for 2 years at the University and was getting good marks but still there is no job for me. I dropped out from the University for one year and now I'm back to it again. I'm back because I found someone to help me for the first time in my life. Because I have had many extremely awful experiences, now I'm a completely destroyed soul. I wished many times if only I have a second good Father and a second good Mother. I've lived my whole life without anyone to support me. The government has always been stealing us and killing and torturing us if we talk and say we want our right to have a good Life. We have everything  in Morocco to live good, but the government is taking everything for themselves and their children. The village I'm living in is like a scaring Forest. No health care for the people. No job opportunities. No entertainment activities. No public libraries. No cinema. In the village, the strongest people hurt the weak ones, and the government doesn't care. When I think about all this, I say maybe I ended up in the wrong place with the wrong people, and so I also say I must leave the wrong place. When I want to leave , the government says No then I say to myself" I wish I were not born." Sometimes, I want to die But death is very painful. I wished I have New parents.. but didn't happen‌I wish I was born in another better place.. but it didn't happen‌I wished to leave the horrible Morocco.. but didn't happen‌I wished I didn't come to  earth, but it didn't Happen‌I wanted to die but Death is awfully painful... And it didn't happen‌So now what should I do ??!!!I'm sharing my story here in this website hoping that I will receive some financial help from Its members. I'm in dire need of this financial help in order to be able to continue my University studies and hopefully save my  future life. I will be so grateful to anyone who would help. Thanks in Advance!

Government guidelines mean that every child has to have the capability to read and what is more understand what is being  read. We focus on the key skills required to exceed the National Average and all our students aim to go achieve beyond government guidelines.Writing SkillsMany children are falling behind in being able to write comprehensible texts in legible English. The area of focus for  our specialist tutors is not just to get students to do this but also to encourage creative ideas to be put to paper. We have been consistently successful in this and children not only do well but also enjoy our programmes of work. MathsHow many times have we heard youngsters say “maths is boring?” To be able to turn to http://www.onlinetutorforme.com/math-tutor-near-me/ and this into a positive statement, we use stimulating techniques devised through many years of teaching experience. The end result is a child brimming with confidence and actually finding enjoyment in a subject that they never thought they would do well in! Mathematics Topics to cover (level 2-level 5)* Number Operations* Fractions and Percentages* Decimals* Areas of Shape, Space and Data* Using and Applying Mathematics* Non Verbal ReasoningOur aimOur aim is to encourage, motivate and inspire confidence in children for them to learn and improve their mathematic skills. We do this by teaching children the basics and developing their confidence. So children accelerate in their learning, no longer feel nervous and are able to be competently apply their mathematical skills to achieve high levels at KS2. It is important that students have a thorough understanding of what they learnt during the session. We provide our students with homework every week to ensure consistency in learning; anything they have not understood can be identified and revisited. We offer our students an Email Homework Support Service, if they are struggling on an aspect of their homework, they can email and our promise is to get back to you within 48 hours (between Monday and Friday) with a breakdown of the answer. Assessments and exam papersWe create effective individual training programmes and help prepare students for entrance exams.EnglishTopics to cover (level 2-level 5)* Reading*     Comprehension/Understanding* Writing* Handwriting/Presentation*     Grammar/Punctuation*     Vocabulary/Spelling*     Language Structure* Speaking and Listening* Verbal Reasoning Our aimOur aim is to encourage, motivate and inspire confidence in children for them to learn and improve their English skills.
