Syrian school-room for the poorest kids

Syrian school-room for the poorest kids

Hi, the three sets of images show you how Moataz – a young motivated community-minded trained school-teacher living in Southern Syria, in Tafas, Daara – brought back to the poorest of kids in the locality their much-loved school-room. WHAT WE NEED? This coming semester he needs some financial support of 700€ to pay for the running costs of the school-room since he lost his job as a bookseller during the 30th June 2018 attacks on the southern region where he lives, and until he can get back earning again.  About the 30 June attacks: Click to read the article I wrote about it on Medium  So for this appeal, we're hoping to get him and the kids a sum of 700€ which will assist Moataz in paying fees and the modest salary he lost when the bookshop was destroyed, so he can continue giving kids the learning experience they love for the upcoming autumn 2018 teaching semester; yet, of course, any amount we can reach beyond 700€ can also be put to good use.  THE CURRENT SITUATION: Moataz has been sharing some of the school-rooms repair process, from kids so excited to hear of a new course, that they helped scrub away the dust and debis, then the rebuild, a few days ahead of Moataz opening, albeit temporarily, before hopefully getting some support through this appeal to keep the school-room open for another semester. After this initial appeal/fundraiser the plan is to be finding suitable sponsor and or organisation to maintain the good work he's already done.     Cleaning-up (post 30th June shelling) with Moamen (8 years old), Mohammed (10 years old), Monaster (6 years old) and Mossa (8 years old): Re-making the wall for the school-room to make it secure again:  Temporary re-opening of the school-room (and we're keeping our fingers crossed we can keep it open for the new autumn semester with your help!!) – the girl receiving a daily award is Arwa (6 years old).    SOME BACKGROUND: Originally the school-room was an empty space below where Moataz lives and for 2 years he was paying out of his own pocket, whilst working in a bookstore alongside having borrowed a bit of cash. But on 30th June that bookstore was part of the collateral destruction of a shelling over Tafas. He bought the school desks from a local carpenter.  ADDITIONAL PRACTICAL STUFF ABOUT THE SCHOOL-ROOM: The school-room is ideally located next to his home which means that kids have access to a clean toilet facility and they can also get clean drinking water.  WHO IS MOATAZ, WHO YOU'D BE SUPPORTING? In terms of Moataz's background, he's a 28 year old Syrian educated in English literature from Damascus University and is a father and husband and a trained teacher. His favourite book, he told me, is the short Hemingway novel The Old Man and the Sea.   AND, SO MOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!... WHAT/WHO IS CUTE COW THEN? I'm a school teacher myself and saw that Moataz had been looking for help/support to develop his school-room (even before the unfortunate June 30 shelling). And Cute Cow came out of that terrible event. The admin of a coaltion group on facebook had posted about the school-room and she had been helping Moataz and together they decided that Cute Cow: Come! Unite to Educate the Children of War could help give a starting point. And to make sure that these will not be 'the lost generation', most of them as old, of even younger of the civil conflict itself. Thanks for reading, we hope it makes sense. Any advice alongside financial support always welcome too. :)

School Supplies for Palestinian kids

School Supplies for Palestinian kids

Hello Everyone With nearly 700 registered person, New Askar refugee camp is a amongst the most densely populated West Banks camps that are not recognized by UNRWA. Overcrowding and unemployment are among the most serious problems facing the residents of the camp. Poor shelters and cramped living conditions offer no privacy for residents in their personal lives, adding to their physical and psychological strains. Since its inception in the year 2000, the Social Development Center (SDC) at New Askar has worked to mitigate the harmful effects of life in the camp. Through developing sustainable grassroots projects that address the needs of the most disadvantaged groups living in the camp, the SDC plays a vital role in supporting and serving those who are most in need of assistance.  As the new school year is fast approaching, the SDC is launching a campaign to provide school supplies to 200 of the most disadvantaged students at the camp. These students suffer from challenges that stem from being disabled, orphaned or coming from a low income family. We plan to provide each student with a package consisting of a school bag, notebooks, pencils, pens and coloring equipment. The cost per package is $20 (USD) which comes up to a total fundraising target of $4000 (USD). The SDC hopes to reach this target within 3 weeks so that there would be enough time to place and fulfill the order for the supplies by the beginning of the new school year. In conclusion, we would like to ask you to share this campaign with your family and friends and we would like to thank you for your continued support and patronage as we ensure that Palestinian children are properly equipped to succeed at school.

Please Help me Achieve my Dream of Becoming a Lawyer

Please Help me Achieve my Dream of Becoming a Lawyer

ABOUT MEMy name is Chijioke Malachy Attamah. I am a Nigerian; resident in Nigeria. I am a student of Law in American University of Nigeria. I am from an economic disadvantaged family. I lost my parents at a very tender age, when I was in primary school and as a result of that I have had so many experiences – both the good and the ugly, which have contributed to making my life more historical.  STUDYING LAW AT AMERICAN UNIVERSITY OF NIGERIAAmerican University of Nigeria (AUN) is a private university and the first development university in Nigeria. Among the courses it offers is law which I am currently studying for a Degree. I am confident that studying law in American University of Nigeria will equip me with both knowledge and skills I need to make a good lawyer, but this can only be achieved with your generous support towards my education. Before I enrolled in American University of Nigeria for the Degree in Law, I studied at College for Legal Studies, Yola where I obtained a Diploma in Law in the year 2009. Between the year 2009 and 2016 when I got admission in AUN, I sought admission for a Degree in Law in Nigerian government universities but none of them gave me admission, even with the good result (upper credit) I made in the college. The reason for not giving me admission is not far away from the fact that I refused to offer a bribe to the admission officers, a practice that has become very common in our government universities in Nigeria, especially when one is applying to study professional courses such as Law, Medicine, and Pharmacy. WHY I HAVE CHOSEN TO STUDY LAW It has been my desire to study law because I believe my purpose in life is to serve humanity and I will get that fulfilled through my desired career in law. I hate seeing people facing challenges in life, especially when their rights are being violated. It gets me angry and I am passionate about helping those in such situations. I am motivated by helping people get their challenges solved or by helping them get their needs met; I always experience an inner fulfillment and motivation when I know I have helped.Upon graduation I will set up a charity with a view to giving back to my society. The charity will focus on advocating for the needy in the society, especially those whose rights are violated but cannot afford the cost of seeking justice in the courts because of their disadvantaged economic and or educational backgrounds. We will engage credible and competent lawyers to demand justice for them. The charity will also engage in promoting human rights and educating the public on same through mass awareness campaigns and the use of digital media and other traditional media. I will want to use the knowledge and skills acquired in school to serve my society. MY VOLUNTEERING EXPERIENCESIn my quest to contribute to making the society where I live better, I have volunteered in different capacities. * I have served as a voluntary teacher at Lengdo Primary School in Jada Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Nigeria from 2010 to 2014 where I taught pupils English Language. * During fall semester 2017 I volunteered as a teacher for AUN Feed and Read Programme, an initiative of American University of Nigeria designed to give literacy to some out of school children and those that were displaced as a result of Boko Haram insurgency in the Northeast, Nigeria. The teaching exercise took place on Mondays and Wednesdays, in the evening after my school hours, and I taught the pupils English Language. * Presently I am volunteering at ICT Republic, an ICT firm in Yola, Nigeria where I teach youths skills on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) on Saturdays. * Also in the past, I led the youths of my community in a peaceful stage protest against the escalated electricity billing by Power Holding Company, Nsukka, an action that resulted into 30% reduction in monthly bills usually distributed to the community households as a tariff by the Company. * I also organize c
