Sabonabona's Cultural Educational Project, Zimbabwe

Sabonabona's Cultural Educational Project, Zimbabwe

***English follows***Cari amici, conoscenti, passanti curiosi!Il 7 ottobre partirò per lo Zimbabwe e coordinerò un progetto educativo culturale in una scuola che si trova in un villaggio a circa 150Km dalla capitale Harare nei pressi di Kadoma, Sabonabona.Circa un anno fa parlavo con la mia amica Martina, la quale mi raccontò del recente matrimonio di suo fratello Matteo con Eunice, originaria di Sabonabona, e venni a conoscenza della sopracitata scuola, fondata dalla famiglia di Eunice con l'obbiettivo di poter dare un accesso all'educazione dei bambini della comunità.Questa scuola non è affiliata a nessun tipo di ONG, e tutti i fondi che ricevono per finanziare il progetto scolastico sono privati e provengono da persone che conoscono la realtà direttamente.Per questo motivo abbiamo ideato un progetto culturale che possa far conoscere la realtà di Sabonabona e dello Zimbabwe, e che allo stesso tempo possa anche alimentare e sostenere il contatto della comunità con la musica e la cultura del territorio: l'obbiettivo è quello di registrare un CD raccogliendo un repertorio di canzoni tradizionali per bambini. Non conoscendo approfonditamente la cultura e la tradizione musicale zimbabwana, mi sono messa in contatto con dei musicisti tradizionali locali che possano aiutarmi e che collaboreranno nella realizzazione di questo progetto, intervenendo attivamente nella creazione del repertorio, nell'educazione musicale dei bambini e successivamente nella registrazione del CD.Ho deciso di creare questa piattaforma di raccolta fondi che aiuterà a finanziare l'attività di questo progetto, nello specifico:- una spesa di materiali per la scuola come matite, pennarelli, quaderni, libri. Il tutto sarà trasportato all'interno di una valigia che porterò personalmente con me in Zimbabwe;- una chitarra, che mi aiuterà nello svolgimento delle attività musicali e che verrà poi lasciata alla scuola;- spese varie per i trasporti e le retribuzioni dei musicisti che collaboreranno al progetto educativo;- varie ed eventuali. Tutto quello che riuscirò a raccogliere sarà interamente devoluto al progetto e qualsiasi contributo può davvero fare la differenza.Nell'eventualità che vi sentiate di contribuire materialmente con materiale scolastico e/o strumenti musicali facilmente trasportabili, potete spedire un pacco o passare a trovarmi al mio indirizzo italiano entro il 5 ottobre: Via Cesare Battisti 27, 33010, Colugna, Tavagnacco, UDINE.Mi occuperò personalmente di tenervi tutti informati sullo svolgimento del progetto e sull'utilizzo dei fondi e dei materiali. Inutile dirvi quanto sono felice per questa opportunità che mi è stata regalata.Viva la musica e viva la scuola! Per qualsiasi informazione potete contattarmi al mio numero olandese +31627342944 o quello italiano +393496470076, o al mio indirizzo email Grazie per tutto l'aiuto,Laura P.s.: Se volete conoscere direttamente il progetto scolastico, visitate questo link e date un'occhiata al video presentazione: https://www.gofundme.com/bambinizim ///// Dear friends, curious people! The 7th of October I will be departing for Zimbabwe where I will be coordinating an educational cultural project in a school located in a village called Sabonabona, close to Kadoma, 150Km away from the capital Harare.A year ago I was talking with my friend Martina, who told me about the recent wedding she attended of her brother Matteo with Eunice, originally from Sabonabona, and I got to know the school mentioned above which was funded by Eunice’s family with the goal to provide an easier access to education for the kids of the community. This school is not affiliated with any sort of NGO, and all the fundings they receive are from privates that know this project directly.For this reason I got involved in the development of a cultural project that could spread the reality of Sabonabona and of Zimbabwe, and that at the same time could promote a contact between the community and the school’s children with the music and the cul

A chance to education for Romanian kids in need

A chance to education for Romanian kids in need

Hello,My name is Dorina, I am 27 y. o and I live in Constanta, Romania. I graduated Anthropology and I have an MA Degree in Social Studies, both with Magna cum Laude. Currently, I work as a translator (mainly books) and I am also a private English tutor for children. In my free time, I work as a volunteer for poor kids.I want to start a charitable association to reach the poor kids and famillies from the villages around the city where I live, Constanta, Romania. My father died when I was 2 and mom never remarried, she raised me by herself, without any help. It was very difficult, we had a lot of struggles and that made me very sensitive and empathetic to other people in need, especially orphans and widows, children that want to study but don t have the means. I am always trying to help, with clothes, food, my time, a kind word, with everything I can but unfortunately my material resources are limited. Children from the villages near Constanta are very poor and many of them, even if they are very smart, are forced to abandon school because their famillies can`t afford supporting them. During the winter, children often walk to school in slippers or they wait for their siblings to come home from school at midday, borrow their shoes and attend school in the afternoon. They never feel that is Easter or Christmas, they never receive gifts, many of them are sick because their alimentation is very poor.My biggest desire is to help poor children to attend school at least until high school, so they can have a brighter future. For this, they need clothes, shoes, food, school supplies. I want to open a center, where they can receive a meal, school supplies and assistance with homework. Many famillies don' t even have electricity or water, which make it difficult for children to study at home, especially if they have younger siblings, generally famillies live 7-8 persons in only one room, children can`t do their homework or study, they get bad results and they get expelled. The illiteracy rate is very high. They can t get a job so they start stealing, begging, refugiate in alcohol and so on. It`s a vicious circle that starts in childhood. I want to change that but I can`t do it by myself. If there is any way that you can help my project, I would be very grateful. Of course, I will take photos and videos at every action that I organise and with the evolution of the project and send it. Thank you in advance! God bless!

Hello everyone & welcome to my money pot!With just 1-click you can support my project* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secureThank you! My Story 4 and 1/2 years ago I started having seizures out of the blue, when I had my first seizure I split my head open where my main artery is in my forehead and had to have over 20 stitches. Since they started I have suffered several aggressive seizures where I have nearly chewed my tounge off. I have had many MRI scans and have been diagnosed with epilepsy, suffer from absences and reguarly suffer from migraine's with aura. I also suffered with a slipped disc in my back. With the help of medication my medical conditions are now under control, during this time I have been on ESA benefits and unable to work, but now the government are making it impossible to survive on benefits when you have a family and I want to go back to work. I currently have no qualifications and you get no help off the government so I enrolled myself on a welding course which when completed means I will get NVQ's in Stick, MIG, TIG, Gas, Submerged Arc Welding, Oxyacetaline and metal fabrication. We pay for this course ourselves every month because we want to improve our quality of life for us and our children. I have started this page because I have nowhere left to turn, after each module I have to complete a two week block of practical training and this is where I need help, the practical training centre is over 70 miles from where I live, I want to raise £2500 pound to purchase a motorbike pass my CBT test, purchase insurance and security for the motorbike. I am at my wits end as I need to complete my first block of 2 week practical training and would like to thank everyone who read's this story and to anyone who decide's to make a donation to help me and my family.

Jake's memorial education funds

Jake's memorial education funds

On Saturday, September 19, we lost our beloved Jake.  He was participating in a charity bicycle race to benefit cancer research -- doing what he loved in the service of others.  The pain and shock is devastating.  Jake leaves behind an adoring wife, Mary Katharine, a beautiful toddler, Georgia, and another baby on the way.  Mary Katharine writes: "I lost part of my heart and the father of my sweet babies. I don't have to tell most of you how wonderful he was. It was self-evident. His life was his testimony, and it was powerful and tender and fierce, with an ever-present twinkle in the eye. I will miss him forever, even more than I can know right now...There was no thought too optimistic for Jake, so take it and run with it. I will strive and pray not to feel I was cheated of many years with him, but cherish the gift of the years I had. In a life where nothing is guaranteed, Jake made the absolute, ever-lovin' most of his time with all of us. [The photo on this post] is a family picture we took a couple weeks ago. It was taken because Jake, as always, was ready with a camera and his immense talent. All four members of our little, growing family are in it. I can never be without him because these babies are half him."Those of us who love Jake want to help ensure that Mary Katharine and the family have everything they need -- now and (especially) in the future.  Please contribute to help provide for their childrens' education as they grow up. These funds may also be used to advance ideas about which Jake was passionate.  Finally, Mary Katharine has asked that people consider donating to a cause very close to their hearts: The Travis Manion Foundation, which supports families of fallen US servicemen, at
