My Health&Education

Welcome to My Campaign for support for my Education and Health needsThis is a request for your help to get me through my studies and back to good health. To do this I need a safe place to spend the next year, and I need financial support to get this. Please read my story and share, and if you can contribute with donations, short term loans, or by referring me to other people that can support me that would be welcome. Thank you for reading on and helping me to gain a sense of security for my future. 😊 If you know me, then probably you already know this, but for those who don’t: I describe myself as a dancer and a teacher from Iran. I wish I could dance and educate others with the spirits and knowledge related to dance until the end of my lifetime, as I believe it has so much power to make changes to human lives. This is why I started studying Choreomundus Masters in Dance Knowledge, Practice and Heritage, a special programme that involves four different European Universities. I started this programme in 2018 and I was due to finish it this year in the UK, and although it has been wonderful, the current pandemic on top of other issues have meant I am far behind from finishing and therefore I need further support to complete this programme. I have encountered many challenges with my mental and physical health in the past year of my studies, and now I must find a way to achieve two goals: recover my health and complete my degree. To achieve these I need to stay close to the institutions of my programme and away from my home country that has harshly been hit by Covid19 and faced with even more of severe political hardships (started back in Nov 2019) and therefore a place of no peace and safety (for also political reasons for me personally). Also, I must find my way through all the uncertainties that surround me; I am not entitled to work legally and Covid19 has made everything in this regard even more complicated. This is why my plan to travel to Australia for a reunion with my brother is not possible at the moment. My visa for the UK ends in 3 months, and I need to go to somewhere that will let me stay, and continue studying for another year to get my life on track. Upon an offer of pure love and kindness from an academic friend in Sweden (also a traditional dancer), I am able to stay with her while I regain my health and complete my studies. I can apply for a visit permit for up to 12 months, and this should allow me to recover in peace and security for some time. Even though my friend is offering sponsorship for food and accommodation, to make sure I can gain this permit (as I am Iranian and therefore not favoured for being granted), I must also show a bank account of at least 12000 Euros (capability to survive for 12 months without her support). I am unsure yet if I will be allowed to work at all with this permit, but I cannot rely on this as a possibility despite wishing to support myself. I have saved as much as I can from my scholarship for this master’s, but with this coming to an end imminently I will not have enough without your help. Right now, I am standing in what feels like a thick fog with my suitcases packed. I must prepare myself to continue this battle, and it certainly is a battle. I am also fighting for my health at the moment (both mental and physical), trying to get treatment from an overstretched system that is running at much lower capacity due to lockdown here in the UK. This year in Sweden is my chance to get my wings back, to continue building my chances for a PhD/job next year in the subject I love; dance. HOW CAN YOU HELP? 1. Health & Education Matters: If you wish to donate to my educational and health goals, to get me through another year and help me towards my future I would be of utmost appreciation and gratefulness. You might not believe, but even 5-10 pounds per person can make a big change for my safty, health and education, if I receive from many. 2. My Residence Permit Application: I am only asking for donations. If you instead would be willing to lend me a sum to support my resinedce permit application that would help me also. The more money I have in my bank account before printing the statement for the application, the better. I can transfer this money back immediately after downloading my bank statement. Please contact me personally to discuss this if you feel able to help me in this way. MY CLOCK IS TICKING! I must hurry to submit my application by July 14th the lattest, as the waiting times may be considerably lengthy. 3. Share My Campaign: I would be so grateful if you could share this with people you know who might be able to help. 4. Contact Me: Please reach me at my email or facebook “Shouresh Pouya” for anything related to this campaign if you needed to or if you thought you have suggestions. Thank you for your time and care to read my story. Wish health, a safe place to live, and happiness for all! With love, Elnaz

Scholarships for the School Of All Relations

Scholarships for the School Of All Relations

“The question is not only what planet we will leave to our youth, but what youth we will leave to our planet.” Support young adults in developing their perception of the common good, opening ways to a more solidary future. We are a greek-french couple and we have founded a center for personal and inter-personal development on the island of Aegina in Greece, Oikia Karapanou (http://www.karapanou.com/) one of the first of its kind in the country at the time of its establishment in 1995. The School Of All Relations was born out of the wish to respond to the acuteness of global disorder by offering empowerment to the young generation. Thanks to the support of over 30 volunteers and 20 trainers coming from all over the world, the School opened its doors in November 2015. SOAR promotes the education of consciousness through an exploration of the relation to self, to others and to the greater whole.We offer 4 to 6 month long, international, community rooted programs to young adults aged 18-30. Our aim is to provide them with a stepping stone towards a fruitful adulthood by supporting them in developing a grounded relation with inner and outer resources which will give them the strength and inspiration to become adults of integrity, respectful of all life, able to respond creatively to the challenges of their time.The SOAR program (link here) combines a set of workshops fostering personal development and community building interwoven with daily practices in mindfulness, body work, communication, group dynamics and more, all embedded in the deep learnings of community life. SOAR is a non-profit initiative, mainly funded by the participation fees. We do not benefit from any kind of grant or financial support. During the first two years, striving to lower as much as possible the participation fees, the hosting team worked on a completely volunteer basis.In 2015-2016 we self-funded two full scholarships for two young Greeks.In 2016-2017 we created our first crowdfunding platform and thanks to the generosity of many friends, we managed to offer 6, full or partial, scholarships.Those two first sessions, 6 months long each, had such a deep, beneficial impact on the development of our participants (See testimonies here) that we decided to continue no matter the cost. We are now working towards our upcoming session (a 4 month long one this time, January 13th-May 3rd), still on a volunteer basis for the whole of the organizing team and for some of our contributors.In parallel we are investigating ways to establish the school’s sustainability. Please help us support some young people who aspire to this opportunity but who cannot meet the financial cost. Scholarships will be granted in priority to young Greeks.Young Greeks have been struggling for years with uncertainty, lack of opportunities, unemployment and often depression within their close environment. The majority of them are highly educated and speak more than two foreign languages. However Greece’s current socio-economic environment pushes them more and more to isolation, self-doubt and a sense of powerlessness. We would particularly like to offer them a possibility to gain the skills, insights, experiences and connections that will help them give meaning to their life and empower them to resume taking initiative. By helping us to offer a scholarship not only do you contribute to the education and the well-being of an individual, but to a social change impulsed by young persons, in service of the common good.A full scholarship (covering accommodation, food, teachings, material, travel costs etc...) amounts to 5000 euros. Our wish is to be able to provide a minimum of three.Every donation is precious. There is no small amount. Even 5 euro will give us great encouragement to continue our work. We thank you for your support!

Agir pour l'avenir des enfants

Agir pour l'avenir des enfants

Bonjour cher-e-s ami-e-s internautes,L’ONG CHILDREN EDUCATION MATTERS en abrégé C.E.M, a l’honneur de vous soumettre son projet caritatif en faveur de l’éducation des enfants, et par la même occasion, elle sollicite votre bienveillance, en comptant sur votre générosité.En effet, l’ONG CEM fut créée en juin 2020, à la suite du constat de la régression du niveau de scolarisation des enfants en République de Guinée, notamment en milieux ruraux et dans les familles démunies, elle dispose à ce jour de deux antennes, une en France (l’antenne mère) et l’autre à Kindia (République de Guinée).Ce projet, consistant à scolariser 158 enfants, filles et garçons, tous issus de milieux défavorisés et des familles très démunies, et majoritairement analphabètes, est né à la suite d’une enquête de terrain à Kindia, menée par l’antenne qui s’y trouve.Cette enquête a porté sur deux quartiers de Kindia et environ 200 familles ont été ciblées selon leur niveau de vie social, et parmi lesquelles, l’enquête a révélé que 158 enfants, ayant l’âge d’aller à l’école ne sont toujours pas scolarisés compte tenu de la pauvreté de leurs familles.Nous sollicitons aujourd’hui votre aide pour pouvoir réaliser le rêve de ces enfants en leur permettant d’aller à l’école, qui est d’ailleurs un droit fondamental pour eux.Comme disait Nelson Mandela : l’éducation est l’arme la plus puissante qu’on puisse utiliser pour changer le monde.Alors, si vous aussi, vous êtes sensibles à la cause des enfants et à leur éducation, faites parler votre cœur en soutenant ce projet à la hauteur de vos moyens.Pour plus de détails sur le projet et nos activités, merci de copier et coller ce lien sur votre navigateur pour acceder au document:http://drive.google.com/file/d/144BPVVpcH2eNgQdtFGsfILqzpYtgNGbg/view?usp=sharingPar avance, recevez nos sincères remerciements,ONG C.E.M

Help my friend Damaris continue her studies

Help my friend Damaris continue her studies

Hello everyone, We need your help to raise funds for my friend in order to pay for her studies. Her story is long and complicated but to make things short, Damaris Tufiño is a 22 years old Ecuadorian student in Gastronomy and Business management at the “Le Cordon Bleu” University in Peru, that is going through a very difficult situation both financially and emotionally. She grew up in the small town of Cayambe, in a not so great family full of narrow-minded individuals like her mother who didn’t hesitate to verbally and sometimes physically hurt her, all based on prejudices on the role of a women. But despite everything she managed to convince her mother to sent her to Peru and follow her dream of studying Gastronomy. Her studies were going alright until she got pregnant unexpectedly and had complications. Damaris had an ectopic pregnancy, this occurs when a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of the uterus, often in a Fallopian tube, the egg can’t survive in these conditions and the growing tissue cause life threatening bleeding. Thanks to the quick response of Damaris’ neighbors and the doctors, she survived the operation and recovered normally. However, when her mother found out what happened she went crazy, calling Damaris a slut blaming her for everything and even threatening her to make her come back to Ecuador and force her to stop her studies. Damaris stood up to her abusive mother and as a result her mother and most of her family decided to completely cut her out of their life. Damaris is currently making the necessary paperwork to be able to work in Peru and support herself, but that won’t be enough due to the high cost of education. She is in urgent need of a financial aid in order to pay for the last 2 semesters of her career, which cost roughly 8000$. As such, and in collaboration with the french association “Engineers without borders”, I offered my help to my very good friend and convinced her to start this money pot. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us, Damaris doesn’t speak English very well but I will translate any message you want to send her. I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to read this, and even if we do not reach the 8000$ objective, any money that we collect will drastically help Damaris, because education is the key to radically change her life, allowing her to gain independence, become empowered and finally leave behind the toxic and horrible persons that almost broke her. Please help her get through this difficult time, any financial contribution or sharing is highly appreciated. Version FR:Bonjour à tous, Aidez nous à collecter des fonds pour payer les études de mon amie. Son histoire est longue et compliquée mais pour faire simple, Damaris Tufiño est une étudiante équatorienne de 22 ans en Gastronomie et gestion d'entreprise à l'Université "Le Cordon Bleu" au Pérou, qui traverse une situation très difficile tant financièrement, qu'émotionnellement. Elle a grandi dans la petite ville de Cayambe, dans une famille remplie d'individus fermés d'esprit comme sa mère, qui n'hésitait pas à la harceler verbalement et parfois physiquement, le tout basé sur des préjugés à propos du rôle d'une femme. Mais malgré tout, elle a réussi à convaincre sa mère de l'envoyer au Pérou et de poursuivre son rêve d'étudier la gastronomie. Ses études se passaient bien, mais elle a tombé enceinte de façon inattendue et a eu des complications. Damaris a fait une grossesse extra-utérine, cela se produit lorsqu'un ovule fécondé s'implante et se développe à l'extérieur de la cavité principale de l'utérus, souvent dans une trompe de Fallope. L'ovule ne peut pas survivre dans ces conditions et à cause de la croissance du tissu, un saignement important se produit, ce qui peut présenter un danger mortel.Grâce à la réponse rapide de ses voisins et des médecins, elle a survécu à l'opération et s'est remise normalement. Cependant, lorsque sa mère a découvert ce qui s'était passé, elle est devenue folle, traitant Damaris de salope, la blâmant pour tout et l'a même menacé de la faire revenir en Équateur et de la forcer à arrêter ses études. Damaris a tenu tête à sa mère abusive et par conséquent, sa mère et la plupart de la famille ont décidé de se couper complètement d’elle. Damaris est actuellement en train de faire les papiers nécessaires pour lui permettre de travailler au Pérou mais cela ne suffit pas pour payer ces études en raison de leur coût élevé. Elle a besoin d'une aide financière urgente pour payer les 2 derniers semestres de sa carrière qui coûtent environ 8000$. Ainsi et avec le soutien de l’association « Ingénieurs sans frontières », j'ai proposé mon aide à ma très bonne amie et je l'ai convaincue de démarrer cette cagnotte. Si vous avez des questions, n'hésitez pas à nous contacter, Damaris ne parle pas très bien l'anglais mais je traduirai tout message que vous voudriez lui envoyer. Je vous remercie d'avoir pris le temps de lire ceci, et même si nous n'atteignons pas l'objectif de 8000$, tout l’argent que nous collecterons aidera considérablement Damaris, car l'éducation est la clé pour changer radicalement sa vie, lui permettant de gagner en indépendance, en sécurité et de enfin laisser derrière elle les personnes toxiques et horribles qui l’ont presque brisé. Aidez-la à traverser cette période difficile, toute contribution ou partage de cette cagnotte est très apprécié.

Aide une école en Afrique du Sud

Aide une école en Afrique du Sud

Le centre d’éducation Nolali est une association à but non lucrative située dans un village rural du Transkei, dans le sud-est de l’Afrique du Sud. Cette association a été créée par Jock Mcconnachie en 2012, dans le but d’améliorer l’éducation des enfants du village, en s’associant aux différentes écoles: Manyano, Soga et Isolomzi.J’ai eu l’occasion d’aider cette école en participant à un programme qui consiste à introduire l’anglais aux enfants entre 6 et 8 ans, à travers des ateliers lectures hebdomadaires et individuelles.Les enfants de communautés rurales, isolées, grandissent en parlant leur langue maternelle, ici le Xhosa. C’est une des langues officielles en Afrique du sud, mais parlée seulement par 18% de la population. Ils sont sensés parler anglais à l’école à partir du collège, mais personne n’est en mesure de leur apprendre, les professeurs n’étant pas formés pour enseigner, et qui ne parlent eux mêmes pas très bien anglais.Les dons récoltés grâce à cette collecte serviront à un nouveau projet: celui d’engager un nouvel acteur dans l’amélioration de l’éducation des enfants à Manyano et Soga.L’idée est d’offrir une meilleure qualité d’apprentissage aux plus jeunes, en engageant quelqu’un qui aidera les professeurs des enfants de 2 à 5 ans, en leur apprenant à enseigner, en les accompagnant.Cette personne, c’est Simon Madonono, qui a aider plusieurs écoles en Afrique du Sud et dont l’aide est largement reconnue. Il a également élargi sa mission en aidant les parents dans l’éducation de leurs enfants, à travers des méthodes efficace, mais surtout simple à mettre en place.Simon est prêt a aider notre école, mais cela nécessite des fonds, pour mettre en place des activités, lui assurer de quoi vivre durant les mois qu’il passera à aider l’école. Il est envisagé de l’engager dès le début du mois d’août, pour le nouveau trimestre, et aussi longtemps que les dons le permettent! (De Debby, en charge de trouver des fonds et des volontaires pour mettre en place de nouveaux projets)Dear MelissaThank you for offering to support the children from our community. Having worked with them during your volunteer stay with us, you know their conditions and background and understand our most urgent needs.The Nolali Education Centre is a registered Non-Profit Company situated in a remote, rural village in the Eastern Cape, Transkei region of South Africa. It was founded by Jock Mcconnachie in 2012 and offers services focused around supporting education to students at surrounding Xhosa schools in our village.Our core impact currently is teaching grade 1, 2 and 3 Xhosa students to read in English via our one-on-one reading programme implemented by international volunteers. We have also empowered two members of the community by successfully training them to implement the reading programme at our library at Soga Junior School. We offer these mothers a small monthly stipend for their work and rely on donations to make it possible.Since covid, we have extended our project to include training preschool teachers who care for children from 2 to 5 years old, creating the foundation of these children's education. We have been fortunate enough to connect with a Xhosa teacher trainer specialist, Simon Madonono, who together with the leadership and sponsorship of a trust organization, has trained kindergarten teachers, extending to include parents / guardian workshops which teach the role of education at home via simple yet effective methods with great results in the rural Kei Farm community. Simon has visited our project for a few days to meet the preschool teacher at Manyono Preschool which we currently support, and is keen to partner with us and develop the preschool.To replicate the teacher training at Manyano Preschool, we would need to offer Simon a small stipend for ongoing teacher workshops which ultimately benefit all the children under her care. We urgently need funds for the first few weeks of Simon's visit beginning early August.Thank you for caring.
