Out of Gaza ! Hors de Gaza !

Out of Gaza ! Hors de Gaza !

Out of Gaza ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjJ7MJWEwkY&feature=youtu.be  A miracle from god has come to my doors in a shape of a scholarship, but money is what stands in front of my way. Hello, my name is Asmaa Badwan. I’m 22 years old and I live in Gaza. My dream, like thousands of young Gazans, is to get out of Gaza. And the good news is that I was accepted in a scholarship program for a master’s degree in business and administration in a prestigious university in Qatar.  This scholarship is both a miracle and a huge source of pressure for me.The thing is, like all the Gaza population, I'm not allowed to leave the 40 km length strip, in which 2 millions of people live on top of each other with 4 hours of daily electricity and where 60% of the youth is unemployed. On top of this, Gaza is regularly subject to escalations of violence, such as shown by the hundreds of death and thousands of injured people that accumulate at the boarder since March…. I guess you better understand where my  dream come from, now?But in few cases – medical emergency or scholarship to study abroad, notably – it is sometimes possible to get out. I say “sometimes” because I also know lots of youth that “lost” their scholarship for waiting too long or others that died due to the fact that they couldn’t receive adequat medical treatment on time (because another issue in Gaza is that hospitals are overcrowded and that many medical supplies needed for serious diseases are not available).In short, this scholarship really is a light of hope. Now, since Gaza boarders are controlled by Israel and Egypt, I have two options:* I can ask for an exit permit to Israel, knowing that this process takes months and often end up being denied * I can leave through the Egyptian border, whenever it is open and – this is the second miracle of my story – it currently is: this option is quicker but requires a certain amount of money....*  Money which I'm lacking: since I left university, and despite my determination,  I have been struggling finding a decent job and I'm currently volunteering for free as an English teacher in order to feel a bit useful and acknowledged. I also give Arabic lessons to internationals in parallel but there aren't too many in Gaza.To conclude, I needs your support to go through 3 steps:* Going through Rafah checkpoint to reach Egypt* From there, flying to Qatar* Meeting my basic needs during my first weeks in Doha since my  scholarship will be transferred only a few months after my arrival. No need to specify that if  I don’t not get the money, my  dream will end here. Thank you a million for your help !  Hors de Gaza ! Bonjour,J’ai 22 ans et je suis diplômée d'une licence  en Anglais.Mon rêve, comme des milliers de jeunes Gazaouis, c'est de sortir de Gaza. Ça tombe plutôt bien, puisque je viens d'obtenir une bourse pour aller faire un master en "business & administration" dans une prestigieuse université au Qatar. Cette bourse, c'est à la fois un miracle et une source d'angoisse énorme pour moi.Parce qu'en fait,  comme le reste des habitants de Gaza, je n’ai normalement pas le droit de sortir de la bande. Bande qui mesure 40 km de long et 9 km de large dans laquelle 2 millions d'habitants vivent entassés avec 4 heures d'électricité par jour et où 60% des jeunes sont au chômage. Tout ça sous fond de regains réguliers de violence,  comme en témoigne les centaines de morts et les milliers de blessés qui s’accumulent à la frontière depuis le mois de Mars... Du coup peut être que vous comprenez un peu mieux d'où vient mon rêve maintenant ?Mais dans certains cas – urgence médicale ou alors, justement, obtention d'une bourse pour aller étudier à l'étranger – il est parfois possible de sortir.  Je dis bien « parfois » car je connais aussi beaucoup de jeunes qui ont « perdu » leur bourse faute de permis ou d'autres qui sont morts avant de pouvoir sortir pour recevoir un traitement médical adéquat (parce qu'un autre problème à Gaza, c'est que les hôpitaux

Teaching English to children in a school in Malaysia and supporting the local community

Teaching English to children in a school in Malaysia and supporting the local community

I created this page to fundraise for the charity Project Trust, which supports young children is Asia, Africa and Latin America. They train and send young volunteers overseas to teach English, Maths and Science or support the community as a social care worker. If I can achieve my fundraising target, I will be teaching and working with children in a school in Malaysia, for 8 months. I am hoping to make a positive impact on the children and the community, by developing their English skills. I will also support their creativity and love for sports through teaching and organising after school clubs and activities. All money raised is going directly towards the charity Project Trust and will be spend on supporting and training volunteers to teach in the schools, as well as develop and support the schools and projects oversees with supplies, facilities and donations. WHO AM I? I am Lara, 18 years old and I just finished studying the International Baccalaureate at Truro College. As part of this I took the subjects: English Literature, Maths, German, Physics, Psychology and Art. After my gap year I am hoping to study Architecture at University. I love to read, draw and travel. I enjoy exploring new cultures and meeting new people.Coming back from a college trip to South Africa and Swaziland last summer (where the pictures in my profile where taken), I was sure that I wanted to travel in my gap year and do something worthwhile, not just for me but also for other people. So, I decided to apply to Project Trust. After an intensive selection course on the Isle of Coll, I have been selected to represent Project Trust in Malaysia for 8 Months. WHAT IS PROJECT TRUST? Project Trust is an educational charity, which has been sending young volunteers overseas to long term voluntary placements in Asia, Africa and Latin America since 1967.This charity organises teaching, social care and outward-bound projects, and offers training and support to their volunteers before, during and after the placement; to maximise the educational value of their experiences as well as the positive effect they have on their project and host community. If you have any more questions about Project Trust: https://projecttrust.org.uk/project-trust-gap-year-charity/ WHAT WILL I BE DOING? Malaysia is a country in South East Asia. It's known for its beautiful beaches and rainforests. Due to the trading history of the country, the Malay culture is extremely diverse; influenced by Indian, Chinese and European culture. After my training course, which will educate me on the Malay culture and train my teaching skills, I will spend 8 months, teaching English to students in primary and secondary schools in Malaysia. Also, I will be organising and running extra-curricular activities, for the students in their spare time, such as art and sport clubs etc. I am hoping to make an impact on the children, supporting their English skills and help them gain confidence in speaking English. FUNDRAISING? To support Project Trust as a volunteer I need to raise £5,500. To be able to partake in this inspiring project, I will have to reach this fundraising target by November 2018.To achieve this target, I have planned and organised fundraising events and projects such as bake sales, BBQs and coffee morning. I also work in a B&B and take on local jobs as much as possible, to raise the donations. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my page.Any donations, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated. All money raised is going directly towards the charity project trust and will be spend on supporting and training volunteers to teach in the schools, as well as develop and support the schools and projects oversees with supplies, facilities and donations.

Funding a Chilean Student to study nursing in Malta (MCAST)

Funding a Chilean Student to study nursing in Malta (MCAST)

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!I am trying to help a smart, young, altruistic and very promising Chilean student to take up a nursing course in Malta (MCAST). Fees are unaffordable. Any financial assistance will be gratefully appreciated. The funds raised will cover tuition fees and help in subsistence during the time of studies. Funds needed: Eur 6500 p.a, x 3 years =   Eur 19500 (tuition)Eur 12000 p.a. x 3 years = Eur 36000 (substinence)Total amount to raise =    Eur 55500                      *****In 2017, MCAST started offering a course in Nursing Studies in collaboration with Northumbria University entitled Northumbria University Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Nursing Studies. This three year full-time degree programme offered in collaboration with Northumbria University provides students with the necessary competencies and qualifications required to register as a nurse (level 1) in Malta and across all EU member states. Students will pursue a minimum of 2,300 hours of theoretical and 2,300 hours of practical work (most of which is carried out on placement) as stipulated by EU directive 2005/36/EC, leading to a clinically skilled and compassionate nurse with professional values and who is fully capable of taking on accountable responsibility. At the end of the course, students will be able to provide patient-centred care focused on values, ethics and patients' needs, demonstrate professionalism and promote values of caring, dignity, integrity and altruism in nursing practice, demonstrate organisational, management and leadership skills in the delivery of quality nursing care and show effective communication and collaboration with the intention of providing the patient with holistic care.  The degree will meet all of the requirements of the EU Directive for General Nursing; the Malta Council for Nurses and Midwives' Scope of Professional Practice; and Malta Council for Nurses and Midwives' Code of Ethics. The first year of the programme will be taught on MCAST facilities, until works to build a state-of-the art nurse skill facility at the St Luke's Medical site are completed. Northumbria's nursing programmes are widely considered the best in the United Kingdom and are the first in the country to be accredited by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), in addition to being approved by the UK Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).    The shortage in the nursing sector presents one of the biggest challenge in healthcare in Malta and across the world. By setting up a world class degree, MCAST will attract more nursing students to the profession, working to tackle this shortage directly.
