Helping Nepalese Entrepreneurs with Raleigh

ENTREPRENEURS IN NEPAL Asmit is 24 years old, living in Gorkha, Nepal, which was impacted by the April 2015 Nepal earthquake (it was also known as the Gorkha earthquake). After the earthquake, there was a dire need for rebuilding, so Asmit identified the opportunity to be the first and only electrician based in his community. He earns 15,000 Nepali Rupees (equivalent of €118) a month. His aim is to expand his business further with business management skills, marketing, advertising, and managing cashflow to expand. His father is now also paired up with him in his electrician business.  Sashita is 32 years old, living in Bhaltar, Makawanpur - one of the poorer regions of Nepal, outside of the capital of Kathmandu. Sashita cultivates cereal crops and also ginger - and makes 10,000 NPR (equivalent of €79) a month. Among her challenges are the destruction of her polyhouses due to thunderstorms and crop destruction due to monkeys. She hopes to learn business plan development, financial planning, and record-keeping.  -------- GOOGLE/RALEIGH IN NEPAL, SEPT 2019I will be part of the Google/Raleigh program to Nepal (of 20 Googlers in total) that will last two weeks.

Support Yona's family

Support Yona’s family! Make a gift! Yesterday, August 20, we were all struck by the announcement of Yona’s death. During his too short life Yona has always been a fantastic friend, father, husband, local leader. He was a caring man as well as a ‘man with a plan’. A selfmade man also. We often had to read his text messages twice or more. “What for God’s sake does he mean?”. We sometimes forgot that he taught himself to speak English. Yona didn’t go to school, he just worked very hard. Did you know he could recognize and point out any bird just by hearing their distant sound? Yona was a very intelligent man and he used his brains to do good for others. He supported his community in many ways. He was the engine behind local tourism and provided employment to his fellows, he convinced Misingi to build the kindergarten and coordinated the project, he was Misingi’s right hand in the scholarship’s programme ,... But apart from that, he was also a loving and responsible father. “I don’t need many cows or wives, I want my children to get a good education”. So he sent them to a private school, started building a stone house so they would be able to study in good conditions... Whenever we visited his family he proudly said “You can talk to my son, he speaks English”. Only half a year ago he sent us some photo’s of the construction of his house... He had it all well planned, he wanted his children to get better chances in life than he had got. But now his family is in trouble. Yona who earned the money to pay for his children’s education is no longer there. And there’s no such a thing as social security over there. The hospital bills for his treatment were already strangling the family. They have mounted up gradually. Instead of a bright future, it’s going to be misery and despair. Already when Yona was ill we promised to help him. We couldn’t turn the tide medically. Since many years he was suffering from hepatitis B, but the diagnosis came only recently. The damage was already done, irreversible... But we can and must help his family. Let’s make his dream come true. Let’s give his children the chances he would have given them if he would still be there! Endallah Cultural Tours and his good friends have decided to create a fund that will help his family to pay for the unpaid bills and to keep his children in school. And you can help us! Any single euro from this pot will go straight to his wife and kids to allow them to have a better future. Thanks for the bottom of our heart.

Make-A-Wish Foundation of Switzerland grants the most heartfelt wishes of children aged between 3 and 18 living with a serious medical condition to give them hope, strength and joy.The Babatunde Bombers Football Club (BBFC) was officially formed in Zurich, Switzerland, back in 2011 by the same five guys who continue to be at the helm of the club to this very day. At the BBFC annual Christmas dinner and awards in 2018, one co-founder, Gian-Paolo, had the idea to do something different in 2019 and suggested a bike ride in the Swiss Alps. Cue a look of horror from most club members gathered around the table! After some discussion, another co-founder and long-time Make-A-Wish volunteer, Stephen, threw in the suggestion of doing it on behalf of this wonderful charity. And now, nine club members have committed to participate in the bike ride up one of the most stunning mountain passes in Europe, The Grosse Scheidegg, on Saturday 29 June. The training begins now!All the details about the ride can be found here, including a short video: https://alpsinsight.com/trip/the-grosse-scheidegg/

Carlota started dying  On August 30th the clinic confirmed that the mother was infected due to the dead fetus and the other twin, Angel Javier, was about to be infected too, so a emergency C-section was neededOn August 31st Carlota was born dead and Angel Javier alive but on the week 30th of gestion, he was still premature and Luisa has lost too much bloodOn September 2nd Angel Javier, sadly, died.

Our UK registered Charity provides education, nutritious food each day and a safe environment for children in Taru and surrounding areas who attend our school. In many of these children’s homes, there are no birthday parties, no Christmas feasts or treats, no celebrations.  Throwing a Christmas Party for these kids at their school is an opportunity for them to enjoy a special day, a festive atmosphere, gifts and food and a childhood that holds some Christmas special memories they would not have otherwise experienced. A Christmas/New Year Party is also our chance to thank the wonderful teachers at the Future of Taru for their hard work and dedication. Our Founders, Paul and Eunice Moffat will be visiting the school on the 29th December and this is when they are hoping to give the children a surprise, special Christmas/New Year Party they will treasure in their memories forever. Funds raised will go towards: food, decorations and gifts for the children. This party will be run by volunteers and relies on donations from generous, compassionate people like yourself. Photographs of the party will be shared on our Facebook Page, Future of Taru, helping you see how your donation has helped make a difference. Thank you.

Educational materials and support for poor children in rural India

Educational materials and support for poor children in rural India

Hi everyone! If you're here and reading this, thank you so much! *EDIT* If this page in coming up in French you can scroll down to the bottom right side and change the language to English 😊  So as you may know, I'm currently travelling around India and right now I am staying with a family who has founded the Indian Social Services Institute (ISSI) organisation. They are a non profit organisation who dedicate their services to very poor children, the elderly community and empowerment for women among many other things. They receive no government help or funding for this, but ask for volunteers to help work with them as they have no employees. I am currently volunteering as a teacher for the children of a small village which is part of the Dalit community, who are very poor. The kids, aged 4-16, come to the centre in the evening to learn some English. The kids come to this centre of their own accord, they are not obliged, it is there for them if they want to learn, and they do! They are really funny, happy, energetic and bright kids who deserve at the very least some school materials to use while they spend their evenings learning. I am fundraising for these materials as there is actually nothing in the centre for the kids to use, and parents have no means of buying them. I know that even just providing them with some super basic stuff that we all take for granted like notebooks, pens and pencils, felts, school bags to carry it all in, they would be over the moon! If you would like to contribute, that would be amazing, it doesn't matter how much, it can even just be a pound.. over here a little goes a long way! The funds will go to my bank account and I will personally take out the funds raised and decide what to buy for the children. If you would like to read more info about ISSI please visit https://issiorgn.webs.com/ Thank you for taking the time to read this!  RachelXxxx

Back2School Campaign

Back2School Campaign

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!The rate of abandonment of children is still pretty high in Romania due to poverty or lack of education. Not so far from Bucharest, the capital city of Romania, in the southern part of our country, there is a valley called Valea Screzii, where a caring orthodox priest named Nicolae Tanase decided to build shelters and take care of expecting single and unmarried mothers, abandoned children, orphans and elders left behind by their own families.The story of this kind-heartedness place goes back to 1990 when the priest, father of six children, began a real war against abortion. He managed to convince a few women not terminate their pregnancies but was then left to care for their babies.The community now benefits from 30 shelters where abandoned children, women that have been exposed to violence/abuse and helpless elders have found a home and a loving family.The gathered funds are being continuously invested in homes, schools, farms and workshops. However, there is a great need for further support so that the project continues to exist and grow.All together we could contribute to the welfare of this small community by donating funds that could be used to purchase school supplies, food, and other much needed products.If you want to support this cause, please make a small contribution by using the link below. The Bucharest BC CoE team will make sure that your donations will be well spent towards bringing a smile on the faces of the members of this community. Thank you! BC CoE Team
