Mission solidaire dans l'Himalaya

Mission solidaire dans l'Himalaya

Bonjour,  Nous sommes 3 étudiantes à l'ISTOM, école d'ingénieur en agro-développement international, dans le cadre de nos études nous partons cette été en stage pendant un mois avec l'association Alpes-Himalaya. Cette association participe depuis plusieurs années au développement du petit village de Tangso situé dans l'Himalaya Indien.  Notre mission est de participer à un projet de remise en état des serres de l'école. Nous effectuerons également des ateliers avec les enfants, en particulier d'observation de la nature. Ce projet permettra d'apporter une aide financière (nous logeons chez l'habitant) et matérielle aux villageois mais elle donnera également lieu à de nombreux échanges interculturels. Si le projet vous intéresse et que vous souhaitez nous aider à partir là-bas, vous pouvez participer à notre cagnotte, même un petit euro compte ! N'hésitez pas à partager autour de vous ! Merci beaucoup ;) Barbara, Louise et Amélie  Hello everybody,  We are 3 students from ISTOM (french school of engineering in Agronomie and Development). As part of our studies, we are going as trainees to India this summer during one month with the Alpes-Himalaya organisation. This organisition gets involved in developping a small himalayan village called Tangso which is located in the mountains at the altitude of 4150 meters. Our mission is to participate in a project of renovation of greenhouses at the school of the village. We are also going to do some activities with children, particularly observations of nature. This project will help developping the village but primarily to promote the exchange between our different cultures and share experiences with them.  If you are interested in this project and if you want to help us to go there, your contribution to our pot would be highly appreciated. Every cent counts! Don’t hesitate to share around you. Thank you very much!! Barbara, Louise and Amélie :)

Remember the Great War Dead Fulflood & Weeke

Remember the Great War Dead Fulflood & Weeke

Welcome to the Winchester Great War Dead Fulflood & Weeke Project Men of the 1st Hampshires in Ploegsteert (Plugstreet) Wood, Flanders, during the winter of 1914-15  November 11, 2018 will mark the centenary of the Armistice that finally silenced the guns in the Great War. Up and down the country, in what will undoubtedly be deeply poignant commemorative services, communities will remember the hundreds of thousands of soldiers, sailors and airmen who died in a conflict that is still etched on our national psyche. Fulflood and Weeke in Winchester will be no exception. The churches of St. Paul and St. Matthew contain memorials to no fewer than 91 men from the parish who went off to war never to return and they will be remembered at services in November. Although these men died more than a century ago their stories are only now being retold thanks to the efforts of a local research group. Over the past three years the researchers have worked to build up a picture of the lives of the parish’s war dead – where they lived and worked, where they went to school, their families, and, of course, where they fought and died. The stories we have glimpsed have been moving and fascinating. Young men from the streets of Fulflood, Weeke and elsewhere in Winchester went to fight and die not only on the Western Front but also at Gallipoli, Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) and even Russia. Winchester, of course, was a garrison town so many joined those regiments based here – the Hampshire Regiment, the Rifle Brigade and the King’s Royal Rifle Corps. Others served in the Royal Navy and the fledgling air force. Men from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and East Africa with family connections in the parish, volunteered to fight for the “Mother Country” and their names are remembered on the memorials. One of these men had been on Captain Scott’s final expedition to Antarctica in 1912 and was to die in a German prisoner-of-war camp. Many schools where the men went to are still here. Several went as infants to Western School, then in Elm Rd, and onto St. Thomas School in Mews Lane, which was eventually amalgamated into Kings’ School. There, they are remembered on the St. Thomas School Memorial Board. Some went onto Peter Symond’s Grammar School, now the Sixth Form College, and they too have a memorial board. Some went to prep schools and onto public schools such as Winchester College where they are also remembered. Some schools they attended no longer exist, for example, St. Peter’s in Chesil Street - but their records do. The time has now come to make their stories accessible to all interested people and aspects of this will take money!  With just 1-click you can donate to this cause on the Contribute button on the right side of this page. * The most expensive item will be to publish a book of their stories which we aim to have available by Remembrance Sunday, on the 11th November this year.* We also plan to have portable permanent exhibition boards which can be displayed in:* St. Mathew’s and St. Paul’s, the churches of the parish of Fulflood & Weeke.* Local schools* Hampshire Record Office & the Discovery Centre* Community halls* Relevant military museums & local military bases* Creation of a website with all the information on it which will have an element of interrogation for example, do any of the men live in your street?* We hope further that:* Teaching resources will be created in liaison with local schools. Many current pupils in Winchester, especially at Western, Westgate and Peter Symmond's, may live in houses that were once the homes of these men.* A programme of Public Lectures & Guided Tours will happen.Long-term, we also hope to tell the stories of all the men who went to fight in World Wars I & II but that is not part of the current project. Thank you for reading this page and we do hope that you find this a worthwhile cause to contribute to.You can further help if you think you are related to any of the men and even have relevant photographs.

La Sierra Nevada Fire Aid

La Sierra Nevada Fire Aid

Dear friends, Mes chers amisI welcome you to this money pot!(Version en français plus bas) 2 weeks ago I found out something that broke my heart, La Sierra Nevada, a natural reserve named after a snowed mountain north of Colombia, home of several indigenous comunities: the Kogis and the Aruhacos, has been ravaged by a big fire that cost a lost of 800 hectars of burned down forest and the destruction of some of their beautiful villages :'(. The Aruhacos and Kogi people are really in connection with the spirits of the planet and has been the guardias of "La Sierra" for as long they can remember, they have isolated themselves for centuries to keep their ancestral traditions: the ability to read the stars, the water, the animals. Now in the last decades they have been forced to interact with the "little brother" as they call us white people, because they had to struggle to keep this place protected from being exploit by petrol and minning companies.  The truth is that they already have lost a lot of land in the past and now this tremendous fire (caused probably by a big draught or Climate Caos) has deprived them of their shelter, clothing and food and their only way to sustain themselves. I plead you now to help me gather some funds to help them to rebuilt their villages, buy some clothing and reforest their mountain.So if I ever done you good or helped you in some way I ask you not to look away, Your help of even as much as 10-20 dolars could make a big change in their life's and sooth the grief of my heart, as I hold those people like my own family. If you really can't donor anything please help me share this with as many of your friends as possible and leave a good comment for the cause. When the goal has been reached I am taking responsibility to personally hand out the money to the treasureholder of the community Zaku Kwariwan; Reinaldo Izquierdo and following up the work done with it.  Empathy, love and sharing is our way of healing eachother. Thank you so much for you trust. Vani Angel  With just 1-click you can contribute to an emergency fund for life's unexpected events Give however much you want All payments are 100% secure Why Leetchi.com? It's easy & transparent!  ******************************* ---FRANÇAIS----************************ Il ya 2 semaines j'ai découvert quelque chose qui m'a brisé le cœur: la Sierra Nevada, une réserve naturelle nommée d'après une montagne enneigée au nord de la Colombie, la maison de plusieurs communautés indigène, les Kogis et les Aruhacos, a été ravagée par un grand incendie qui a coûté une perte de 800 hectars de forêt brûlée et la destruction de certains de leurs beaux villages :'(.  Les Aruhacos et les Kogis sont vraiment en rapport avec les esprits de la planète et ont été le Guardiens de "la Sierra" pour aussi longtemps qu'ils peuvent se rappeler; ils se sont isolés pendant des siècles pour garder leurs traditions ancestrales: la capacité de lire les étoiles , l'eau, les animaux.   Au cours des dernières décennies, ils ont été forcés d'interagir avec le «petit frère» comme ils nous appellent, les blancs, parce qu'ils ont dû lutter pour évité que cet endroit protégé ne soit exploité par les coorporations de pétrolière et minières. La vérité est qu'ils ont déjà perdu beaucoup de terres dans le passé et maintenant ce feu énorme (causée probablement par une grosse sécheresse) les a privé de leurs abris, de leurs vêtements et de nourriture pour subvenir à leurs propres besoins.  Je vous supplie maintenant de m'aider à rassembler des fonds pour les aider à reconstruire leurs villages, à acheter des vêtements et à replanter des arbres dans leur montagne. Donc, si jamais je vous ai fait du bien ou vous a aidé en quelque sorte je vous demande de ne pas regarder ailleurs, votre aide de même autant que 10-20 euros pourrait faire un grand changement dans la vie de cette persones et apaiser la douleur de mon cœur, car je tiens ces gens comme ma propre famille. Si vous ne pouvez pas vraiment fair une donation, s'il vous plaît aidez-moi à partager ceci avec autant de personnes que possible et laissez un bon commentaire pour la cause. Lorsque l'objectif est atteint, je prends la responsabilité de remettre personnellement l'argent aux trésoriers de la communauté, Zaku Kwariwan; Reinaldo Izquierdo et de fournir aux contributeurs le suivi du travail effectué. L'empathie, l'amour et le partage est notre façon de guérir l'un et l'autre  Merci beaucoup pour votre confiance  Vani Angel

End Family Separation

End Family Separation

One child dies somewhere in the world every five minutes from preventable causes, mostly related to violence.Exposure to that violence can cause deep and long-lasting emotional scars in those who survive. In Central America, the fear of violence has recently driven thousands of children to drop out of school and to make the dangerous journey toward the U.S. border.The UNICEF report, titled “Children in Danger: Act to End Violence against Children,” highlighted Central America as one of the most dangerous places to be a child with El Salvador having the highest rates of child murder in the world, followed by neighboring Guatemala.“Schoolchildren and teachers live in fear of murder, theft and extortion. School attendance is among the lowest in Latin America, and violence is one of the main reasons...One in three Salvadorean children in year 6 of primary school report having been robbed in the past month and four in ten report being bullied,” the report said.Much of this violence comes from armed drug-dealing gangs — often comprised of other children — who adopt a “join or die” approach and sometimes kill others if they refuse to follow.Violence in this region has driven thousands of Central Americans, many of them children, to flee to the United States — often traveling alone. A large number of them arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border this winter, and many of the children picked up by immigration services are still in detention centers across the United States. For the last eleven years the leaders of Madre Tierra Amor, in partnership with La Casa Organica, achieved measurable success by educating children in El Salvador.In 2008 we decided to open La Casa Organica for Salvadorean families. This project shares the wonders of organic farming as an alternative lifestyle to counteract organized crime.Today El Salvador experiences some of the highest murder rates in Latin America. In the past three years nine students of La Casa Organica were killed and one is missing as a consequence of this wave of violence (three boys from the picture are dead). Many of our own students have also decided to make the dangerous journey toward the U.S. border, ending up in concentration camps.Imagine that you are a child and have fled unimaginable violence and crossed entire countries alone, only to find that your right to request asylum requires that you first survive a camp more closely mirroring a place for interned prisoners rather than for children.You will not be provided schooling, classes of any kind or books. You will spend the next few months with thousands of other children, wondering if and when your childhood will be returned to you.According to The New York Times, this is the reality for some 13,000 Central American migrant children being held in detention centers across the country. As the Trump administration ramps up the construction of tent camps, what remains clear is that the big business of detention centers for migrant children will only continue to grow. Few safeguards are in place to ensure the health and well-being of those children.What makes this particularly pernicious is that the children at the center of this story are fleeing the gravest situations imaginable. Our goalAt La Casa Organica our goal is to make sure that no child in our area drops out of school and decides to make the dangerous journey to the U.S. border.La Casa Organica empowers kids to create environmental and social solutions. We are working with communities to promote responsible land and resource management through environmental education. We teach our students English, French and computer skills so they have better chances to find a job. We provide a space for an exchange of ideas and a discussion of life subjects to bring them new perspectives.We seek acknowledgement from local families as a serious source of support, education and inspiration for their children.We also want to continue offering them new life experiences such as yoga classes, healthy cooking, music, arts and crafts.They deserve a better life.Any amount of monetary donation is welcome. We are highly honored and obliged for the support you offer.Your generous donation will go a long way towards helping us end child migration in our area as we will be able to reinforce our educational programs.Thank you! in advance. Together we will make a real difference in the lives of the kids we serve. For more information regarding La Casa Organica, please check our website www.madretierraamor.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOGJFBkfUNs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNFrWyF4VVs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2sKWA-ZlxM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKZEg0daMX4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwxalUfjm2o https://www.facebook.com/…/vb.1005534075/10206195332694689/…Thank you in advance for your donationsMauricio A.

Les Enfants des Andes

Les Enfants des Andes

Bonjour à toutes et à tous et bienvenue sur cette tirelire pour les Enfants des Andes. la Bolivie se trouve encore aujourd’hui parmi les pays les plus pauvres d’Amérique latine. Cette pauvreté extrême, principalement dans les zones rurales proches de la frontière Argentine, touche en premier les enfants. En 2014, le gouvernement de Bolivie a adopté une nouvelle loi sur les enfants dans le pays, celle-ci autorisant le travail infantile à partir de 10 ans. La Bolivie est ainsi devenue le premier pays à légaliser le travail des enfants. Les enfants en situation précaire et vivant dans la rue n'ont pas la possibilité de suivre une scolarité dans de bonnes conditions car ils ont des difficultés à répondre à leurs besoins primaires (manger, se laver, dormir, se vêtir) Ces enfants des rues sont une population très vulnérable, exposés à des risques comme l’exploitation au travail, la criminalité, le trafic d’organes, les violences sexuelles etc... Notre projet en 4 mots : - Santé : l’objectif est de mettre en place un suivi médical des enfants et de fournir une petite trousse de secours à chacun. - Hygiène : fournir un kit d’hygiène comprenant, une brosse à dents, du dentifrice, un savon. - Éducation : fournir un kit d’écriture - Nutrition : Créer un jardin pédagogique Pourquoi réaliser ce projet ?C’est la plus belle façon de découvrir une culture étrangère. Ce sont des valeurs que nous défendons et c’est avant tout un partage humain avec comme fil conducteur la protection, l’éducation, la nutrition et la santé des enfants des rues. Comment allons-nous procéder ? En s'unissant avec des associations humanitaires, en partageant notre expérience et notre volonté d’aider. Pour cela nous allons aller au plus près des populations locales et lier leurs besoins à nos objectifs.  A quoi servira votre don ? Financer les interventions auprès des enfants, l’achat des différents kits : santé, hygiène, éducation, l’achat d’un terrain pour cultiver les légumes et tout ce qui peut s'avérer nécessaire pour la mise en place du projet.  Les détails sont ici : Premièrement 1 600 € de la collecte seront destinés à l’achat des Kit, nous avons décidé d’un budget de 20 euros par enfant pour une école de 80 enfants.Deuxièmement 2000 €de la collecte seront destinés à la mise en place du jardin pédagogique. Achat du terrain, système d’irrigation basique et du matériel de jardinage. Enfin si dans le plus grand des bonheurs, nous dépassons l’objectif nous pourrons anticiper le lancement d’autres projets.  Par avance merci pour votre gentillesse et votre générosité, à très vite.Cassiopée et Maxence

Midwifery Elective

Midwifery Elective

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!My name is Steph and I'm a second-year student midwife. Towards the end of my second year, I have the opportunity to carry out a midwifery elective. I am passionate about midwifery and want to use this time to enhance and develop my knowledge and skills. My plan is to travel to Kathmandu, Nepal to experience midwifery in a developing country. Nepal is among the poorest and least developed countries in the world. One-third of the population is living below the poverty line. In order to help make a difference in the world, I feel it is important to contribute towards and support a positive change in developing countries.   My plan is to travel to Kathmandu and spend a fortnight within a teaching hospital to help and facilitate supporting pregnant women through the antenatal and postpartum period. In Nepal, only 44% of women receive antenatal care at least once during pregnancy and only 35% give birth with a skilled birth attendant present. Current evidence demonstrates that 126,000 pregnant women in Nepal are in need of assistance, and now even more so since the catastrophic earthquake in 2015. It will be interesting and, I suspect, eye-opening to see what information is given to women at clinics, what happens when a woman goes into labour, how efficient the monitoring of maternal and fetal well-being is and what maternity facilities are available. I hope that my experience will give me first-hand insight into the structure, facilities and delivery of care for these women. Since 2012 the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) has been working in partnership with the Midwifery Society of Nepal (MIDSON) to strengthen midwifery in Nepal and to improve the health of women and babies. I hope that by gaining funding for my elective I will be able to contribute towards this great cause. With just 1-click you can support my project and I hope you are as passionate about this cause as I am! * Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secureThank you for your time and generosity!

Wir sitzen hier im warmen, lassen es uns teilweise im Überfluss gut gehen.Dann sehe ich in Supermärkten immer wieder mit schrecken was dort weggeworfen wird, da unsere Gesellschaft schon so verwöhnt ist um z.B. einen Apfel zu kaufen der eine kleine Delle hat.Den Kindern und auch Eltern in den Flüchtlingsunterkünften wäre dies sicherlich egal, auch ob die Schokolade über den MHD ist oder nicht.Nun ich habe mich jetzt hier entschieden eine Akion zu starten um helfen zu können.Hoffe sehr, daß viele mitmachen werden.Möchte einfach verschiedenes Notwendige aber auch was Kindern Freude bereitet, gerade jetzt weit weg von der Heimat, wo Krieg vorherrscht, kaufen und weitergeben können.Dies wird doch wohl möglich sein können, ein kleines Lächeln ist doch immer sehr viel wert.  Eine Flucht bedingt durch einen Krieg kann leider sehr schnell stattfinden

home needed for father and children

home needed for father and children

Hello everyone, Welcome and Thank You for giving me your time to read my post.I am a father of three children, Gracie 12, Lucas 7, Max 5. For the past few years I have been split up with the childrens mother and they lived with her. Over the last few years I have been working and paying child mainenance every month to their mother. During all this time I was unable to save up and rent a home of my own as I was not left with enough money, I had to rent a room in a shared house.However now I am in great need of help, their mother has met a new partner who has a nasty temper, smokes cannabis and drinks every day, and he has moved into their home very quicky.I have started court proceedings for my children to come and live with me as they were being mistreated by their mothers new boyfriend and their mother too, but I need a home big enough for them. Their mother and boyfriend started sending the children to bed early each day, while they drink and smoking cannabis every night. My daughter said to me that every night cannabis smoke comes under her bedroom door, and she has headaches. One incident occured where my daughter threw a vase on the floor as she was frustrated because her mother and boyfriend were laughing at her, my daughter overheard her mothers boyfriend after this,  saying "if she smashed anything else, I'm going to smash her face in".I was devastated to hear what was going on in their home. My daughter Gracie broke down crying uncontrollablly to my sister one weekend and told her everything that was going on at home. My sister recorded the conversation and it is heartbreaking to listen to. As a result I went to the police station and also called childrens services, however they were not interested as there was no evidence to support any of my daughters claims. All they did was attend the home once, and they asked the children if everything was okay,- of course the children told them everything was okay as they are scared to say anything against their mother and her boyfriend.The situation now is that the (grandmother) mothers mother, has agreed that the children will live with her until the mother gets herself better and is able to care for the chldren.The children want to come and live with me, they do not want to live with their grandmother. Their grandmother knew all along what life was like for them at home, but did nothing about it. She is only interested now as court proceedings have started, and they do not want to lose the children.The final court case is in July and I need to have a home to prove to the judge that I can care for the children. I would greatly apprechiate anyone who can help in anyway, this is a last resort as I don't know what else to do.Thank you for taking your time to read about my situation.Kind Regards Thank you.
