L'HEURE VIDE HUMANITAIRE - Venezuelan refugees

While travelling through South America by car we crossed the border of Ecuador and Colombia in Rumichaca. There we saw so many Venezuelan refugees in such great misery without the help they needed, that we decided to stay. We started this NGO, and have been working together succesfully with local and international organizations to give them the help they need. Please visit us at: www.lheurevidehumanitaire.orgInstagram: L'HEURE VIDE humanitaire L’HEURE VIDE humanitaire is a small network-based NGO focused on short-term projects in emergency situations involving refugee issues worldwide. Our approach is to assist existing humanitarian aid structures and local associations and to supplement them when their opportunities to act are limited or restraint.Our aim is not to direct or to implement.We are there to help. This approach ensures that we can focus on what is needed on the ground and in the now to fill the gaps in aid left by big organizational structures and complex international policy. As a small and nimble organization, we are not limited by bureaucracy or massive overhead.This allows us to concentrate our efforts where we excel: organizing the available resources in a hands-on, creative way to produce tangible results quickly and effectively.

Nandri Trust Association supports underprivileged families

Nandri Trust Association supports underprivileged families

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot! Nandri Association India public charitable Trust aims at enabling women to earn their own money and thereby to make their own choices and become self-reliant through tailoring and stitching projects. Since 2009, some underprivileged and poor women from rural and very backward villages around Mahabalipuram (Tamil Nadu-India) are identified and enrolled in the Nandri Trust Program. Opening up this tailoring training and job opportunity does not only provide them with a salary but also helps to raise confidence and to increase the weight of their voice and their share in decision making processes within their families. The Nandri Trust Program is structured around 3 steps that are all interdependent: 1- The 10 months intensive tailoring course within the Nandri Trust Tailoring Institute based in Mahabalipuram provided for free. Here the women learn the basic sewing, stitching and tailoring skills and thereby enabling them to continue with us in a professional working environment. 2- After the training the women are given the possibility to join our sewing studio as permanent staff. All the employees have followed and completed the Nandri training course. 3- Childcare: these women mostly mothers, poors and without family support struggle for sustenance during the training. It is to meet their needs that we created a small kindergarden. the “Nandri Kids Villa” where the mums can earn professional skills while their kids are properly taken care of. The entire structure is managed by women who took part of the program. We started the project back in 2009, the rental cost were entirely covered by donations till now, we were facing some difficulties to cover all the training costs (buying the fabrics / materials and sewing machine) and insuring meals all year long for the women and the kids. In the mid long term, the goal for Nandri Trust was to be self-sustained without having the need for any monetary support from the outside. Unfortunately, because of the Coronavirus pandemic, all the ladies in our association no longer have jobs, some of their husbands have also lost their jobs and all these families are struggling to survive with this health crisis. Our association is trying to raise funds to support these women and their families. Your donation is important and precious during this special difficult time! It will help 17 ladies and 36 kids from villages around Mahabalipuram! Thank you for them! 200 rupees = 2 days of meal for 1 family (200 rupees = 2.23 euros)(200 rupees = 2.73 USD) With just 1-click you can donate to a good cause* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com?

El Museo del Almodóvar

El Museo del Almodóvar

En 2021 el CEIP Antonio Rodríguez Almodóvar no puede realizar su tradicional mercadillo andaluz. Los productos, la gastronomía o los atractivos turísticos de nuestras 8 provincias no podrán dar vida a nuestro patio con toda la comunidad educativa.Pueden ver el del pasado año en este enlace.Pero no podíamos faltar a nuestra cita y visibilizar los trabajos realizados por el alumnado, además de ser fieles a nuestras causas solidarias con las que ya hemos donado más de 8000€ en los últimos tres años con el empuje de esta gran familia del Almodóvar. Por eso hemos decidido mostrar los trabajos de cada provincia en este MUSEO VIRTUAL. Nuestro fin solidario de este curso: La Huella de AlexA Alex lo diagnosticaron de cáncer cerebral a la corta edad de 13 años, siendo un episodio muy complicado de manejar para toda la familia pero que con el tiempo, unión y mucha fortaleza lo consiguieron afrontar.Alex mostró una gran madurez pese a su temprana edad. La familia pidió a los médicos que le explicara la evolución de su enfermedad sin ocultarle información, para que supiera en todo momento su estado y situación. El propio Alex ayudó a su familia dándoles siempre todo el ánimo y apoyo posible.Durante su vida Alex siempre mostró en muchas ocasiones que sentía la necesidad de ayudar a otros niños que padecían la misma enfermedad. Después de su fallecimiento los padres encontraron una carta en la cual Alex expresaba el deseo a sus padres que le diesen sentido a sus vidas ante su ausencia y crearán una asociación, a través de la cual se le reconociera su ayuda los más pequeños.Esta carta fue el pistoletazo de salida para comenzar este bonito proyecto, el cual tiene como meta ayudar y no olvidar la huella, que dejo marcada en su localidad (Cantillana) el joven Alex.

Support a family house in Cambodia

Support a family house in Cambodia

Hello friends, family and guests of "Les Néréides"!Since 2011, our holiday rentals have generated an annual donation of 800 to 1000 euros so that Cambodian children in need can live and grow in a safe family environment. They need our support as much as ever, but with Covid, our bookings have raised just 220 euros.Here, you can donate a small part of what you may not have spent on a foreign holiday this year, and help us reach our usual amount. We have all lost a lot in 2020, but hope is around the corner. Let’s make sure the children of Krousar Thmey can enjoy some of that hope too!Thank you from them and from us, for whatever you can contribute.Best wishes for the holidays and for a bright and better New Year,Suzanne & Jean-François Presentation of the projectThe project aims to support a family house in Cambodia in order to help marginalized children to be reintegrated into their families and society, through emotional, educational, and material support. The family house in question (named "Kpop Veng") welcomes street children who have suffered from important trauma into a safe environment, tailored to their needs, while providing them with the resources and care they require to become independent and responsible adults.BackgroundBorn in 1991 in the Site II refugee camp in Thailand, Krousar Thmey (“New family” in Khmer) is the first Cambodian foundation helping underprivileged children. Its mission is to enable the integration of underprivileged children into Cambodian society through education and support adapted to their needs, with respect to their traditions and beliefs.Kpop Veng family house is one of the four family houses run by Krousar Thmey in 2020. The house opened in 1999 and is located in the city of Takhmao, in the suburbs of Phnom Penh in Cambodia. Sokhy, the mother in charge of the family house, has been working with Krousar Thmey since 1999, which demonstrates her reliability and provides a sense of security to the children. After 20 years, she is always enthusiastic and still passionate about her work.Currently, the house welcomes 8 children (4 boys and 4 girls).How will the funds be used?The funds will be used to support the education, health, hygiene, nutrition, as well as cultural and recreational activities for the children of the Kpop Veng family house. For instance, a contribution of:- 5$ covers the expenses allowing the children to do gardening for a month- 10$ covers the price of school uniforms for one child for one year- 37$ covers the food for one child for one month- 50$ covers extra English classes for the children for one month Thank you again for your support !

Transforming Waste Through Education and Empowerment in Malawi

Transforming Waste Through Education and Empowerment in Malawi

ICCM is Creating Opportunity, Protecting People and the Environment, by Reducing Waste ICCM is a Malawian based social enterprise dedicated to tackling the unceasing issue of waste and our aim is to not only protect the environment but also the people who live in it.Our main focus is educating the community with our ‘Reduction, Reuse and Recycle’ strategy but we also implement waste management best practise, waste collection and commercial consultation. We rely heavily on our amazing volunteers and this allows us to pour any revenue into our projects and programmes but in order to spread our message further we require more funding to employ talented and dedicated individuals with the skills to take this enterprise further. We have already provided education programmes to schools, expanded our commercial waste collection to over 30 businesses and funded community workers in starting their own eco-friendly businesses but with your help we could do so much more! Your donations will help to preserve the undisputed natural beauty of the area, reduce respiratory disease in adults and children and allow us to help communities thrive where poverty is rife. As COVID 19 is closing in on Malawi Duty of Care to our waste collection workers is key, this money will be prioritised to ensure our team have the correct PPE to start. All other donations will be used to build the capacity of communities to manage waste to improve their health, livelihoods and environment. THANK YOU ............................................................................................................................... Our vision is to create and maintain a healthy environment by reducing pollution and the damage caused by unregulated waste disposal. Our waste ‘Reduction, Reuse and Recycling’ strategy is imperative to support this goal. In the 4 years ICCM has been operating we have documented evidence-based research, secured income streams from waste collection and waste reduction business services. We provide commercial consultation/advice and deliver school programmes on environmental and waste management best practice. We support commercial activity and education in the community which helps relieve poverty and improves positive ideas/behavioural change.We currently rely heavily on volunteers due to limited funding, but as we expand our aim is to identify new sources of revenue which will enable is to become self-funding, allowing us to employ talented and committed individuals who share our values. Studies clearly document the negative effect that poor waste management has on the health and wellbeing of communities in Malawi. Broad environmental issues include water,soil and air pollution, as well as greenhouse gas emissions from uncontrolled open waste sites and associated transportation. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/media/57a08a06ed915d3cfd000550/EoD_HD099_Oct2013_Solid_Waste_Mang_SL.pdf. UN-Habitat (2010) reports that prevalence rates of acute respiratory infections among children living in households where garbage is burned in the yard can be six times higher compared to houses where waste is collected regularly.Our team work to transform waste into a resource, creating economic incentives as social drivers to behaviour change. Our achievements up to date include:• Environmental waste management (re-use & recycle) best practice education to students in both government and private schools.• Training and supported development of the skill-sets of ICCM employees and volunteers.• Supported Clement Kandodo, a former ICCM volunteer in setting up his own successful environmentally friendly biogas company.• Increased the skills of practical innovators enabling them to become productive environmental designers and teachers.• Engaged with over 30 organisations & businesses promoting environmental best practice and compliant waste collection services.• Created a platform for waste stakeholders to discuss key issues for knowledge sharing, efficient waste management and waste innovations.• Secured a ‘Letter of Support’ from Environmental Affairs Department (Malawi Government) to setup waste collection in the Capital City of Lilongwe. ICCM need financial support to deliver an increasing number of vital educational activities and projects. This will enable us to hold and regularly deliver waste educational waste management events, youth panel meetings, entrepreneurship events and activities to promote ethical waste management practice. Equally we are committed to supporting waste innovators with the provision of design knowledge, tools and equipment to enable them to generate income from agri-waste and eco-waste derived product or solution sales. If you would like to help us make a real difference - where it is desperately needed by making a donation, you can be assured that every contribution, no matter how large or small will be appreciated and be used effectively to Create Opportunity, Protect People and the Environment by Reducing Waste.
