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.

Notre approche consiste non seulement à aider les structures d’aide humanitaire existantes et les associations locales mais également à les suppléer lorsque leurs possibilités d’agir sont restreintes. Autrement dit, notre but n’est pas de diriger ou de mettre en œuvre: Nous sommes là pour aider. Cette approche nous permet de nous concentrer sur ce qui est nécessaire sur le terrain et dans le présent pour pallier aux limites l’aide accordée par les grandes structures organisationnelles et les complexes politiques internationales. Pour cause, en tant que petite organisation agile, nous ne sommes pas contraints par la bureaucratie ou les frais généraux massifs. Cela nous permet de concentrer nos efforts là où nous excellons, à savoir l’organisation de ressources disponibles de façon pratique et créative pour produire des résultats tangibles rapidement et efficacement.

Dear IBPG members, As we strongly believe in deliberate practice, we decided to offer online sessions during the lockdown. We have been truly blessed with more and more colleagues joining our practice group from all over the world and becoming new friends. Thank you! As you all know, IBPG is not an association of any kind from a legal point of view, we are just a group of colleagues and dear friends who volunteer to set up regular practice sessions for all conference interpreters.In the previous years we have applied a membership fee of 15EUR/year for our onsite sessions, to cover the basic expenses (mike, website, etc.).This year, we would like to ask for a donation in order to allow us to cover the Zoom subscription. We would also like to revamp our website and add a couple of extra plug-ins which could make the registration process easier..!If you wish to help us, we would be very grateful! Since we launched our online sessions, we had the pleasure to welcome members from all over the world. We understand that in certain markets this fee might have a bigger impact on your annual expenses, therefore, please feel free to make even a small donation. Thank you, and see you at practice! The IBPG Team
To all of you,Now we need to think about the future. Arlène has send you a debrief of the panel and we are now working on the next year event and the different operation/ communication we should organize in between. The next event will be hosted by José Gordon and Noemi at BODEGA EL CAPRICHO.We need to create a board of members in order to communicate easily and make some decision for creating a formal entity. That's why i am sending this email to a selection of our members.Then we should agreed on the purpose of this Institute; transmission, knowledge etc...and our position in regard to a potential partnership with Butcher Manifesto. Just a quick reminder that the central idea is to recreate the bonds between the farmers, the butchers, the chef and the consumer. We all believe that all they all need to be educated, informed and connected. We should also ask for the Masters a small annual contribution in order start the process. We are asking 100 £ by person and 300£ by company.Because We need to: - select the board members, president and officers - do the legal and corporate ( status, registration, accounting) - create a logo - fixing a guideline for the Institute exchang and work with Arlene on the next event Best, FRANCK
Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot! Nandri Trust Association 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 = 2.40 euros)(200 rupees = 2.65 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? It's easy & transparent!

Que ce rêve perdure... Samedi 9 mars je prendrai à nouveau le départ de la Finnmarksløpet 500 pour tenter de compléter la totalité des 560km qui nous mènerons jusqu'à la ligne d'arrivée.L'année dernière j'avais dû prendre la dure décision d'arrêter 60km avant la fin! Au travers de cette aventure il m'est cher de continuer à soutenir la Fondation Make-A-Wish Switzerland qui se démène chaque jour pour offrir aux enfants atteints par la maladie à réaliser leur rêve et les aider à se battre.

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.

Help the most vulnerable students during the pandemic. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, many Edinburgh Napier students have lost their zero-hours jobs. Their student status means they are unable to access income and housing support. Some of our international students have become stranded in Edinburgh due to closed borders, unsure of when they will see their families again. To support our students, the University has put in place Crisis Support Funding. One hundred per cent of these funds support our most vulnerable students and particularly those not covered by Scottish Government funds. Without these funds, many students would be struggling to keep a roof over their head and purchase food and essential items during lockdown measures. The demand for this support has been overwhelming and we expect more and more students to need assistance as the crisis continues. These are difficult times for everyone, but if you are in a position to help these students, your gift will make a huge impact. Plus, if you are a UK Taxpayer, you can increase the value of your donation through Gift Aid at no cost to yourself. Thank you for getting involved in our own little way of raising money for the Crisis Fund!
