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.

The Babatunde Bombers FC's Ride For Wishes

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/

Support my Barrister training! (Pupillage)

Support my Barrister training! (Pupillage)

Welcome to my Pupillage fundraiser! WHAT IS PUPILLAGE? In order to qualify as a Barrister (Attorney) in England & Wales, candidates must pass several stages: 1) Academic stage - Law degree (3 years)2) Vocational stage - Bar Professional Training Course (1 year)3) Pupillage stage - Pupillage (1 year) Pupillage is the final stage of this development and is essentially on the job training with a Chambers (the Barrister equivalent of a law firm) who usually keep you as a tenant at the end, and from where you are then permitted to run your practice and build your career. This is the stage I have reached, but I come from a lower income background and so now I need YOUR support! ABOUT ME I am 29 years old and come from Leicestershire in England. I have two older sisters who both have children (2 boys and 2 girls). My father is a fabricator/welder and has been since he left school at 15. My mother also left school at a young age and works as a library assistant. My hobbies include combat sports, walking my dog (when I'm back home), cooking (and eating), politics and debating, and of course spending time with my friends!I am particularly passionate about the ideas of freedom and liberty, and issues surrounding free speech etc.I studied Law at BPP Law School, and then completed by Bar Professional Training Course at Nottingham Law School. I am currently working as an impartial Political Advisor to Members of the European Parliament (which doesn't pay as well as you might think!)  THE STORY SO FAR It has been an extremely long and difficult journey up to now. I wanted to be a Barrister from rather a young age (roughly about 15 years old) but I was discouraged by teachers and even some family members originally, not because they didn’t think I was capable but they felt that I wouldn’t have a good chance of breaking into such an ‘elite’ profession. In other words, the bar isn’t for people like me; working class roots, lower income family, a bit of a mischievous lad in school... Consequently, I studied something else at University, but this desire to earn my living putting my skills to use giving people representation that need it, always rested at the back of my mind. Pursuing another career path made me realise even more how much I wanted to go to the Bar. Eventually I decided that I wouldn’t be content in life if I didn’t try, but having already done a degree I had to finance myself. My family didn’t earn enough to spare even a slight amount of money, so I moved back in with family members to keep costs down, sold my car and took a job with Leicestershire Police working 40 hours a week, and studied my LLB at the same time, both full time. During this time, I also wrote and self-published a book to help me generate a little extra cash, and this book was featured on BBC News which helped somewhat (but any writer will tell you earning money is a whole different story with self-published books! Nevertheless, finally in my life I felt like I was going somewhere that nobody could’ve predicted, and rising up from my background to make my friends and family proud and contribute something valuable to society. Working and studying law full time at the same time was awful, if I’m honest! I didn't have the opportunities to do voluntary work or work experience because I had to work, I didn't get the law school social life because I had to sacrifice my social life, I even lost a couple of friends as a result! I couldn’t go on trips or holidays or nights out, and I truly lived close to the breadline. I was from a poorer family, so I was used to it, but I must say that the added stress kind of forced me to care even more about getting through and passing my exams so that I could complete the Academic stage of my training. This whole experience was made much more difficult when me and my family had to support a close family member during a period of horrendous domestic violence and a violent rape that took place in our family home while the rest of the family were away. I do not know how me and my family got through this without my failing my studies, but it happened, and I can only thank the kindness and understanding of both friends and strangers in contributing to my ability to cope. I managed to get my 2:1 for my LLB, by some miracle, and then the next challenge was finding funding for the BPTC. Once again, I wasn’t really encouraged. Most of my loved ones thought I was crazy, the cost of training to be a Barrister was more than the annual income of both of my parents combined! How would I find this kind of money? How would I survive? Well, I managed to find funding from two charities that gave me an interest free loan, which helped cover my tuition fees, and I also made use of the Government’s Masters Loan Scheme. This allowed me to finance the Bar Professional Training Course, and also be able to catch up with my peers by doing pro-bono work and mini pupillages (which took a LOT of networking and competitions to get). Because I had missed out on these chances previously due to work, I needed to cram it in during the BPTC.  I did pro-bono (free/voluntary) charity work on the Free Representation Unit, representing individuals in employment tribunals who could not afford to pay for legal representations. I worked on the Innocence Project, looking at the cases of people who have a credible grounds for claiming innocence despite being already in prison, and preparing their case for the Criminal Cases Review Commission. I won the Inner Temple’s Mock Trial Competition, and was consequently awarded a prize of 2 mini Pupillages. I was offered the ‘Provosts Award for Excellence’ for my advocacy by the University of Law. I did all that I needed to do to establish my foundations for building my profession, and also to show both others and myself that this was what I really wanted, and in particular that I wanted to work in criminal law (annoyingly the worst paid due to those blasted cuts!). I tried to dedicate every free moment of my life to working hard and being creative and resourceful, so I could get to where I am despite where I had come from.  A huge setback came half way through the BPTC (which is notoriously difficult and has a huge failure rate). I was knocked off my feet and hospitalised with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome. This is a complication of shingles in the facial nerve area. Essentially what started out as a bout of shingles to my left-side face was misdiagnosed and consequently turned into Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, paralysing the left side of my face completely so that I had to tape my eye shut and struggled to speak properly. After introvenous medication, the use of muscles was restored after 3 months, but the sensory nerves in that side of my face no longer work to this day. Nevertheless, even then, the moment I was discharged I went back to classes, conscious of the fact that if attendance dropped below a certain amount (even for illness) I would be thrown off the course. I attended classes with a bandaged-up face, dosed up on steroid medication and painkillers and barely able to speak. It was truly one of the most physically and mentally difficult points of the journey. Somehow, I managed to do it, once again perhaps by some miracle! And I graduated the BPTC with a 'Very Competent' grade, and a Distinction at LLM (Masters), which made my family and friends extremely proud of me and seemed to make it all worth it. Yet the next challenge, pupillage, was starting to peek its head over the horizon. Statistically, I wasn’t going to get it...they are notoriously difficult to come by and there is a disproprtionately higher number of applicants than pupillages. Well, after bombing my first interview massively (what a lesson and experience that was), I somehow (perhaps by some miracle?) secured pupillage at a Chambers in London that I had thought I wouldn’t have a chance in. I even felt like I had messed up a couple of things in that interview, but if that was the case those things were clearly graver for me than for them. This Chambers was also the Chambers I most wanted to join after meeting the folk there and seeing what a great bunch of people they are and how I clicked with them. Finally I felt like the end was in sight! I am due to begin pupillage in October; however, I am back in the position I was in at the start of my journey (only this time with the added debt behind me). The pupillage award is set at the minimum amount (regulated by the Bar Council), as is common with many criminal sets where government legal aid cuts have driven the amount of available money down to a pittance. Unfortunately, this minimum amount isn’t enough to live in London with the ability to cover high rent, bills, food and keep on top of my debts (financial difficulty can end your career as a Barrister if you're not careful). Doing all of that on the minimum amount is going to be near impossible, however I refuse to give up. I have come so far, out of my own pocket, and proved to those around me that so far, the bar is as much a place for someone like me, as it is for any Oxbridge or Harvard candidate, and that hard work can get you there! I admit though, that I fear now that what can be considered the opportunity of a lifetime is to slip through my fingers all because of money and having no family or friends capable of helping me. I feel that I have more than proved that I am suitable and worthy, and evidently those in the industry agree, hence the offer of pupillage. Nevertheless, I fear that the dream career I have worked so hard for, genuinely motivated by the desire to provide justice and representation to those who need it, to speak up for people like my family member, to contribute to upholding the principles of fair trials and our freedoms and liberties, will be snatched away from me just because of my background. Consequently, I am trying to find ways to supplement the minimum pupillage award. I want to be able to focus 100% on my pupillage so I can take advantage of the opportunity and become the best Barrister that I can be. That way, all of this investment of time and money will have been put to good use, allowing me to represent people accused of crimes or victims of crimes, to the highest standard, and provide access to justice to many from backgrounds who wouldn't ordinarily get it. I want to be able to uphold justice, represent those who need representation, and play my part in the area that I truly love and am passionate about. It is not easy for me to appeal to others for help, perhaps it's my ego, but I am left with little choice, and I feel that this isn't simply a donation but an investment in helping someone better their own life, and develop a career where one can give back to others.  I am lucky to have been able to fight through the Academic and Vocational Stage of my training, but all of that will be a waste of several years and a lot of money if I am forced to stop now and surrender to the idea that the bar isn't for people from my background. My experiences have been difficult, but made easier by the kindness and genorisity of others both inside and outside of the profession, and it is that kindness and genorosity of others that I appeal to now.Please consider donating to support my pupillage stage. It will allow me to finally have sufficient funds to live in London during my training, without falling behind with law school repayments, and without starving. Having that extra support will allow me to 100% focus on pupillage and training without the extra mental stress of financial turmoil.Please consider donating, and know that this is not merely a donation but an investment in the future of someone who absolutely wants to use his profession to do good in the world, speaking up for people who have no voice in and outside of the courtroom, and upholding the freedoms and liberties that many of us take for granted.Thank you for reading this long essay, and I hope it gave you some insight and context regarding the situation. Please give what you can and know that your donations, no matter how small, will change my life and countless others too. Thank you! (P.S. If I can ask you, once you have donated, to try to share with 10 other people who might donate; or share on email/whatsapp/facebook etc, I would be hugely grateful!)

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.

Demi after care fund

Demi after care fund

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!With just 1-click you can support any project you're passionate about* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com? It's hassle-free!ThankAt the age of two Demi Shah contracted a nasty cough, which, unbeknown to her family, led to her being diagnosed with a number of serious illnesses. She was diagnosed with the following: Tracheomalacia, Laryngomalacia, Laryngeal Cleft, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, Eczema and Severe Household Dust Mite Allergy.  The past years have involved countless trips to Sheffield Childrens Hospital, whereby she has been given numerous operations, medication and advice in order to help treat her illnesses and let her lead a normal life. So far nothing has worked. She cannot even enjoy her own home without having to deal with the harsh cough and wheezing that she has now had for the past four years. This has affected her sleep pattern, her school life and some times leaves her struggling to breathe - she is, you could say, allergic to her own home. ’Dynamite Demi’ is the nickname used by her mum, Jolene Shah, due to the fact that Demi has endured all of this at such a young age but still keeps on fighting without a fussDemi is now back in hospital and has had a peg tube inserted to feed her . She is weak and in pain but slowly recovering.I however, have given Jolene a nickname of ‘Superwoman’, because she really is. Let me tell you about Jolene. She has three children altogether, Demi being the youngest. In her early years she lost her only brother suddenly and avoidably to Sepsis. Her mother suffered an accident which has left her disabled. Not only has she helped her mother but she single handedly cared for her three girls. With Demi’s illnesses she has to keep the house spotless and dust free, so she also maintains the cleaning of her house on a daily basis. If this wasn’t enough she went on to study a degree in Social Science whilst undertaking full time work. The reason for this was because she wanted to set a good example to her children. You must be thinking wow, how did she manage all of this? Through sheer determination and love she has for her children by wanting to provide them with the best she could. Recently Demi was rushed to hospital on numerous occasions as she was struggling to breathe. Demi then went for another operation which Jolene thought would provide a positive outcome. But it hasn’t. Demi is now extremely poorly and it has been discovered that she now suffers with Crohns Disease, has multiple ulcers on her bowels and her immune system is attacking her body. She is being fed through a tube to provide her with enough nutrients to live and to give her bowels a rest. What more can this little girl deal with? Well she is Dynamite Demi after all and she will get through this. The reason for this justgiving page is to help Jolene, Demi and the family. Jolene recently bought her first home and now also has a mortgage to pay. The money generated from this will help cover expenses for travel, parking and to help maintain her home for her other children and herself. At the minute she has had to take indefinite leave from work as she wants to be by her daughters bedside and is currently undergoing training to learn how to feed Demi through the tubes. She is now extremely worried about how she is going to pay for her bills, mortgage and to provide a roof over her family’s heads. Not only can the money help with the above but the money given can also be used to help buy machines to rid the air of dust in order to help Demi breathe properly. Thank you for taking time to read this. I cannot think of anyone that deserves this help more than Jolene. She is the most kindhearted, down to earth, loving human being I know. Be like Jolene and please donate.

Mawejje Creations

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.

RECOOPEREM L'EDUCACIÓ AL SENEGAL

RECOOPEREM L'EDUCACIÓ AL SENEGAL

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 Thank you so much for your atention.

Además, se harán actividades para reforzar la concienciación sobre la importancia del seguimiento educativo. A estas alturas, el proyecto está encaminado y es por eso que ya se ha podido realizar toda la cimentación.
