Sanctuary Of Song

Sanctuary Of Song

Could the warmth and generosity of your heart be captiviated by these brave and diverse women for a few moments? Could you consider supporting this singing group who find themselves far from their homelands, lonely, frightened, exhausted and joyless? I started this group in Swansea one year ago with a local one-off start-up grant and since then it's changed lives. It's a place where women can be themselves, laugh or cry, find and develop cross-cultural friendships, clear the fog of daily fears and be a part of creating a joy-filled environment. To meet them and sing together you would encounter such grace, strength, courage, vibrancy and kindness that it may just break your heart and simulatenously rebirth it in a moment of unexpected joy and purpose. Some women come here and sing for the first time in their lives. Or they hear a voice they'd never known they had or never imagined they'd meet again. They amaze themselves to be singing in public, then for an audience of 200 and later being invited to sing at Westminster! They greet their growing confidence with awe, and wonder what else they may be capable of! Some say it's the one activity of the week where they feel alive. This group is an important part of their lives and needs funds to continue and to advertise and gather more members of the local community to generate more pathways of integration and sustainable support. Your donations can provide a year of funding for: A living wage for me to continue my admin, travel, session delivery, extra rehearsals for public performances, training members of the group to lead sessions and conduct the singers at public events in my absence and outreach work informing and recruiting marginalised women.Refunding participants bus fares (£4.30 per person which would be nearly a whole days living allowance);Childcare costs (running a creche);Room hire;Refreshments for singing sessions;Printing and advertising; Remember, there's no too small: every voice valued, every quid counts! If a fiver seems too small to bother, these are women who know it's value (it's all they get to live on every day). If many, many give the 'little' you can manage, we can reach a goal. And give more IF you can. If donations exceed the target I'll use them to expand the project - organise extra day events which can involve men and share a meal for example.  Sanctuary Of Song is guided by the principles and philosophy of the Natural Voice Network (https://naturalvoice.net). At the heart of this movement is the principle that singing is every person's birthright and a recognition that human voices have expressed joy, celebration and grief, and song has bound community in work, devotion and healing for milenia. Please visit us to like and follow our page for updates, videos and sound files at https://www.facebook.com/sanctuarysisters/ Visit us at https://www.facebook.com/sanctuarysisters/     and please like our page! I've chosen to use this crowdfunding website because their fees less than half of providers so more of the money you donate goes to the work project.

Nepal Vocational Training Project

Nepal Vocational Training Project

Our dear friend Tirtha Poudel has asked us to help organize the funding for a project focusing on vocational training in Nepal and we are more than happy to help. Our aim is to raise £5,200, to pay for twenty young Tharu men and women (a low caste, poor indigenous ethnic group) to receive vocational training over a three month period. The training in the Bardia region will cover building, plumbing, electrics, carpentry and vegetable farming. 100% of the money raised will be used in the training and eventually the project will be expanded to fund 100 young people. So, we need your help to raise this money. Any amount would be hugely appreciated and all contributions will go directly to the people where it's so desperately needed. Employment Issues in Nepal. Nepal is one of the world’s poorest countries. A high proportion of young people struggle to find work in Nepal and if they do their wages are so low because they don’t have the necessary skills. Every day between 1000 and 1500 young people from Nepal travel overseas to work in the Gulf. Many are unskilled workers and receive very low pay, living in poor conditions. Vocational training in Nepal is vital for young people however they often don’t have the resources to fund it. Many young Tharu people have never had the opportunity to have an education or gain necessary vocational skills. The aim of this project is to provide 20 young men and women (eventually expanded to 100 participants) with basic vocational training in building, plumbing, electrics, carpentry and vegetable farming over a three month period. Participants will be selected from various villages in the Bardia region and at least 10 villages will be covered. Training will be focused on those young people who have had to drop out of school due to financial problems. The cost of training will be £260 per person for three months. This includes the training equipment, protective clothing, stationary, trainers’ fees and the rent for the training venue. Once participants have received their training, they should be able to find work as skilled labour in their respective areas and will be less likely to need to travel overseas to find work. For those who do want to travel abroad they will also find themselves in a better position to receive higher wages. Tirtha is working with a number of local and reliable Non-Governmental Organisations:  * Partnership for Sustainable Development (PSD) will assist with the financial administration and monitoring on a voluntary basis;  * Local community groups will also support the project * Local cooperatives will provide soft loans for participants on completion of the project to help buy necessary equipment for their professional work All the money we raise will go towards the vocational training project. Our Connection with Nepal Twenty years ago I travelled to Nepal as a gap year student to participate as a volunteer for an environmental charity. Fellow friends in this group have also volunteered in Nepal over the past 15 years. My experience of the country, the mountains, the culture and above all it's wonderful, open and honest people has remained with me ever since. I witnessed at first hand, the impact that direct funding had on providing remote communities with not only resources to build their own facilities, whether it be deep water wells, pit latrines or smokeless stoves but also training in vocational skills for the future. This is why we are asking for a pledge from you. I’ve decided to head to Nepal again next year to monitor the progress of the project and prior to this I want to help by raising money for a grass roots vocational training project. I know 100% of the money raised will go to the project. What we’d like you all to do is PLEDGE & SHARE this request for help. SHARE it with your friends, your family, your colleagues, and your neighbours, anyone who might be willing to donate so that 20 people, a world away, can start learning a trade and vocation for life.PL

ALIVE- You only live once! (Contemporary Dance project)

ALIVE- You only live once! (Contemporary Dance project)

https://nat-skar.wixsite.com/nataliaskarpeta "One day your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching." The newly founded  Dance group Icarus is working on the new project "Alive" : an innovative project dedicated to the  "dance for social change" movement. I (as the choreographer) am personally invested in activism and my work is my way into taking a small step to change this world and our society for the better. Every project is supporting a special cause, issues that need to be faced or charity. ALIVE is in support of the homeless, so part of the funds that we will raise will go to the national charity Crisis.uk in hope to change some people's lives. So if you are in need of some good karma help us to help the world!  The  team is consisted of  professional dancers, versatile and with strong technique. We are very passionate about what we do and we strive for excellence so with your support we will be sure to deliver! Your funds will go to studio space, dancer's pay (for rehearsals and performance), customes/props and theatre hire, so technically you will become our producers! And you are sure to get VIP seats on opening day which is soon to be confirmed!  “Alive” is built around the journey of self-discovery and the inner search for what really matters in life in order to be truly alive. The dancers  will embody and express all the barriers (physical and emotional) that prevent people from living their lives whether by getting into a primitive state or by facing their truths and breaking stereotypes and society's standards. You only live once, so make sure you LIVE IT! Using contact, Laban’s movement analysis and improvisation techniques Icarus company  will explore and build movement which will utilize the dancers’ skills to the maximum.  The role of an artist is to speak a universal language, which everyone at every corner of the world understands and connects to. I am passionate about activism through dance because people most of the time forget their power and they are too scared or too comfortable to stand up and have their voice heard. There is nothing to lose but there is everything to lose if you are not active and aware. You have to look into the future and think- how do you want the future to be instead of waiting to be told what is going to happen. Environment, social media, wars, irresponsible governments, diversity, humanity, culture...it's time to shape our own future.    Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you!

Une carrière pour notre club

Une carrière pour notre club

Une carrière pour notre club Organisé pour : Centre Hippique du Territoire de Belfort  Urgence pour le bien être des chevaux Qui sommes nous?  Le Centre Hippique du Territoire de Belfort est une association loi 1901. C’est un centre équestre se trouvant dans un parc verdoyant, arboré et agréable tout en étant en ville. Nous accueillons une vingtaine de chevaux et poneys.Notre association permet aux clients d’évoluer dans différentes disciplines (CSO, dressage, éthologie, cross, balades, …) dans un cadre agréable et familial. Nous souhaitons avant tout que petits et grands évoluent avec les chevaux en confiance et dans la bonne humeur.Aujourd’hui, c’est un nouveau comité, jeune et dynamique, plein de nouveaux défis et de projets en tête qui représente l’Association et qui souhaite développer l’activité du centre équestre. L'association compte de nombreux membres, bénévoles, sympathisants ou encore propriétaires qui assistent l’association dans les différentes activités de la vie du club (entretien des infrastructures, rénovation des box, soin des chevaux, …)  Que voulons-nous faire ? Notre comité a changé en Mars 2016 et souhaite s’inscrire désormais dans une démarche de développement de notre activité tout en respectant le bien-être animal. Notre démarche est simple : nous souhaitons proposer aux enfants de découvrir l’animal dans son milieu naturel (comme vit-il au pré, qu’est-ce qu’il mange ?) mais aussi d’apprendre à l’approcher, à travailler avec et à le comprendre. Nous avons également la possibilité de proposer le même service aux personnes âgées situées sur le même domaine que nos équidés.Nous avons de cesse d’améliorer la vie du club et des chevaux au quotidien. Aujourd’hui, nous avons accueillis 4 nouveaux équidés, avons rénové les infrastructures des box et mis en place des prés permanents pour que les chevaux puissent prendre l’air et se détendre dans leur milieu naturel.Grâce à nos bénévoles et à nos monitrices, nous avons pu mettre en place différentes activités pour la découverte du milieu équestres. Pendant les vacances scolaires, nous proposons des programmes pédagogiques pour les enfants afin qu’ils découvrent la voltige, l’éthologie, l’attelage et encore bien d’autres disciplines.               Aujourd’hui, nous avons un manège et un accès à un étang basé sur le domaine, mais nous souhaitons construire une nouvelle carrière afin de développer l’activité du club en plein air. Nous souhaitons avons tout mettre en avant la découverte du milieu équestre à travers la pédagogie, les activités autour du cheval pour les enfants, tout cela dans un environnement naturel et calme.  Que ferons-nous de cette cagnotte? Aujourd’hui, nous souhaitons créer cette nouvelle carrière afin de développer l’activité du club. Pour cela, nous avons besoin d’un apport conséquent afin de financer notre projet. Effectivement, nous voulons tout mettre en œuvre pour le bien-être de nos chevaux et faciliter l’approche de l’animal pour petits et grands en toute sécurité.Cette carrière serait un atout supplémentaire pour accueillir petits et grands dans une structure sécurisée et encadrée en plein air.En restant dans un esprit pédagogique et sécurisant (en cas de chutes de nos petits cavaliers) mais également en respectant la santé de nos équidés (travail régulier sur un sol sollicitant les sabots et les membres du cheval) nous avons demandé plusieurs devis à différents fournisseurs spécialisés dans le domaine. Malheureusement, les devis actuels, bien que certains raisonnables, restent encore trop élevés pour la trésorerie de notre petite associationC’est pourquoi nous sollicitons donc votre générosité car ensemble rien n'est impossible et notre projet pourra prendre vie !  Toute l'association, bipèdes et quadrupèdes, vous remercierons de tout cœur pour votre participation.

It will be delivered to supporters — and promoted in public events — in a digital format. However, opportunities to publish it on paper will also be explored. The author has lectured on cultural studies in Lithuanian universities, and has taken interest in David Lynch's work for many years.

Fund-raising for an English Translation of two Antinatalist Books

Fund-raising for an English Translation of two Antinatalist Books

Two important great books about antinatalism have already been released, but, unless you speak French or German, you might never get to read them. The good news is that you can help out this fundraiser to get them translated into English, so these two books can be read by an international audience, as they deserve. We’re launching this fundraiser in hope that antinatalists see the value in getting these two books translated. Any amount of money, even small amounts, are welcome to help us to get to the fundraiser goal. If you don’t have much financial resources, you can also help by spreading the word about this fundraiser to anyone you think might be interested.  The fundraiser goal is 10.000 euros, which is roughly about 11000 dollars. All money will go into hiring someone to translate the book. If the fundraiser doesn’t reach its full goal, any given money will still go into translating as much as possible.  You can read more about the two books in the description below.   The Art of Guillotining Procreators : an Anti-natalist Manifesto (L’ART DE GUILLOTINER LES PROCRÉATEURS : MANIFESTE ANTI-NATALISTE) Released: 2006 By Théophile de Giraud  «Published in 2006 (same year as Benatar's famous «Better Never to Have Been») and written in French, this book is one of the few to be entirely dedicated to antinatalism, developed as a system. Spiced with black humour, it methodically dismantles most of the classical pronatalist arguments and shows the vices hidden behind the supposed virtues of bringing a child into the world. Its chapters cover subjects as the right to sue one’s parents in justice if one feels uncomfortable about having been born ; mandatory parenting classes in schools to prevent child abuse, mistreatment or neglect ; strike of the wombs as a political way of action ; and feminism as the key to overcome the phallocratic fertility obsession. Ecologically concerned, it adresses the overpopulation problem, pleading for a non-violent reduction of global human population to 100 millions of people. On the whole, this essay tries to demonstrate that having children is incompatible with ethics, and that adoption is the only moral way to build a family. This book also contains many antinatalist thoughts from various reknown authors throughout the ages and countries, so constituting an anthology of quotes against procreation.» Review, summary and short extracts here from Francois Tremblay’s blog «The Prime Directive» Theophiles book is currently out of print in french, but can be bought used on Amazon «ANTINATALISM. A Manual.» (German title: Antinatalismus. Ein Handbuch, 736 pages).Released: 2017 By Karim Akerma This book on ANTINATALISM is designed as a manual from A-Z. It pursues the ethical purpose of making readers willing to procreate change their mind. Readers already critical towards procreation will be corroborated in their antinatalist attitude. In order to propagate non-propagation the book presents a series of new reflections and neologisms on antinatalism. At the same time the manual makes use of a wealth of arguments and statements on natality from thousands of years. Even though some of these arguments and statements may belong, as it were, only to the outskirts of antinatalism, they are still proof of the fact that man – as a cultural being – has always been able to take a critical stance against the bio-social radical of procreation. In as much as it advocates universal antinatalism the book also takes into account other sentient beings, thus claiming: It is almost always better not to act in such a way that a sentient being begins to exist. This is where humanistic antinatalism and ethical vegetarianism meet.  While the original German edition comprises some 735 pages the English translation is set to present a condensed version of about 250 pages. The English edition will focus on systematic elaboration of the subject matter rather than on historical exemplification. The german edition can be bought hereKarim

Cancer Survivor

Cancer Survivor

Hallo German version - please scroll down to see the English Version WIE MICH DER KREBS NOCH STÄRKER MACHTE!  Der Schock saß tief! Endlich hatte ich meine längst vergessenen sportlichen Fähigkeiten wiederentdeckt, und mein Körper schenkte mir durch Bewegung zusätzliche Lebensfreude, da kamen zunehmend für mich völlig unbekannte Schmerzen. Im Rücken fingen sie an. Monatelang rannte ich von Arzt zu Arzt, von Chiropraktikter zum Osteopathen und dann irgendwann kam sie - die Gewissheit: Brustkrebs mit Ausstrahlung in die Knochen. Obwohl der Ultraschall unauffällig war, hatte ich den Knoten im November bereits gespürt – dennoch dauerte es bis Februar, bis die Diagnose endlich da war.Die Diagnose war das schlimmste, was mir passieren konnte. Doch habe ich von Anfang an beschlossen, dass ich mich von dieser Krankheit nicht unterkriegen lasse. Was tun, welche Möglichkeiten habe ich? Fragen über Fragen! Seit über 7 Jahren lebe ich schon glücklich und zufrieden in meiner neuen Heimat, meiner großen Liebe, in Kapstadt. Letztes Jahr wurde diese durch die perfekte Symbiose aus Leben und Arbeiten gekrönt - mit einem wunderschönen Appartement direkt am Meer. Meine selbständige Tätigkeit als Coach macht mir riesigen Spaß, denn ich tue das, was ich schon immer tun wollte: Menschen helfen, sie beraten, unterstützen, Visionen aufzeigen, begleiten – ich zeige Menschen dass alles auf dem Weg ist und nicht im Weg! Und nun das! Nun war und bin ich an dem Punkt, an dem ich fremde Hilfe in Anspruch nehmen musste und muss. Ich bin aus tiefstem Herzen dankbar für all die Hilfe und Unterstützung, die ich in jedweder Form von Familie, Verwandten, Freunden und Ärzten erhalten habe.Meine onkologische und sonstige medizinische Behandlung hier in Kapstadt ist hervorragend; ich fühle mich mehr als gut aufgehoben und beraten, die positiven Fortschritte und Rückmeldungen meines Körpers sprechen eine eindeutige Sprache! Bereits vor langer Zeit habe ich mir den Leitsatz meines Uropas "Sepp" zu eigen gemacht: "Der Optimist ist der beste Mist"! Und deshalb möchte ich meine Krankheitsgeschichte auch für andere als positive Erfolgsgeschichte aufarbeiten, dokumentieren und für möglichst viele persönlich Betroffene als Inspiration und Kraftquelle veröffentlichen: WIE BESIEGTE ICH MEINEN KREBS Bereits jetzt, während meiner aktuellen Tätigkeit als Coach, die ich aktuell zwar reduziert, aber dennoch aktiv durchführe, habe ich von einigen Klienten erfahren, dass sie ein ähnliches Schicksal wie ich durchlebt haben! Dies hat mir zusätzlich Kraft und Anreiz gegeben, mein lange begonnenes Vorhaben schnellstmöglich voranzutreiben und umzusetzen! Da zur Umsetzung dieses Vorhabens leider auch erhebliche finanzielle Mittel z.B. für Videoaufnahmen, Dokumentation und Aufzeichnungen erforderlich sind und werden, habe ich nach Rücksprache mit meiner Familie, Bekannten und Freunden hier dieses Spendenkonto eingerichtet. Jegliche finanzielle Unterstützung hierfür wäre eine riesige Erleichterung für mich. Egal in welcher Form Ihr mich unterstützt oder unterstützen werdet, ich bedanke mich bereits im Voraus recht herzlich hierfür. Und für alle unter Euch, die ebenfalls direkt oder indirekt mit einer brutalen Krankheit kämpfen oder in einer anderen, schwierigen Lebenssituation stecken:Denkt an das alte und teilweise in Vergessenheit geratene Sprichwort: "Und denkst Du auch es geht nicht mehr, kommt von irgendwo ein Lichtlein her" In diesem Sinne weiterhin viel Spaß, Erfolg Zufriedenheit im Leben wünscht Euch Jenny  English Version:  HOW CANCER MADE ME STRONGER! I was in deep shock! Finally, I had rediscovered my long-forgotten sporting abilities, and my body gave me additional joy through movement and suddenly I was in increasing pain I had never experienced before. It started with my back. For months I visited doctor after doctor, from chiropractor to osteopath, from pillar to post; and eventually I had certainty: Breast cancer that had spread into my bones.

Waterproof community area for the PsyClean volunteers

Waterproof community area for the PsyClean volunteers

PsyClean Crew needs a wind- and waterproof area!After 5 years of working in the field, endless efforts to install tarps to keep the crew dry and warm, we're now looking forward to The Dome. This star-tent will be the centre of our community, a dry and cosy space for our eco-warriors. About the projectThe PsyClean Crew is a volunteer-based initiative aiming towards more environmental awareness on open-air events. By involving "regular" festival visitors, we're inviting them to a life-changing journey. Here they face the other side of a commercial event, gain some ecological sensitivity and get the chance to work as a team fuelled by love and acceptance. It is our hope, that this knowledge is then shared with their friends –  also "regular" visitors – and together we can create a critical mass of conscious and respectful festival visitors.The PsyClean Crew has worked on almost 30 festivals, involving more than 350 volunteers, who have dedicated their time and energy to stand up for the greener future, regardless of the atmospheric conditions, repeatedly and many times.Now we'd like to award their contribution with a 100% waterproof and cosy community tent. As a project we can't afford to buy The Dome without the help of You. About The DomeOur new community area will provide dry seating spots for ~80 volunteers. We'll equip it with carpets, bean-bags, shoe cases, coat hangers/dryers and a small tea/coffee station, where they can always grab a warm drink. It will be illuminated with solar-powered lights. It will be a perfect space to rest after working hard in the field. :-) Please meet The Dome!All the sides can be closed with zipped walls if needed for better wind/water protection.  We've already received a price offer for The Dome from the local factory in Poland, the closest manufacturer to our location. Our crowd-funding goal represents this price offer plus the campaign costs. Click to make a contribution.* Give what you can.* All payments are secureThank you!The PsyClean Crew

Mona Francis: Objectif Tokyo 2020

Mona Francis: Objectif Tokyo 2020

OBJECTIF TOKYO 2020: Bonjour, je me presente, je m'appelle Mona Francis, j'ai 26 ans et suite a un accident de la route il y a 6 ans, j’ai été amputée d’une partie de la jambe, ce qui m’a amenée à la natation handisport, sport que je pratiquais jusqu’alors en loisir. De là, au Para-triathlon, il n’y eu qu’un pas qui fut vite sauté au gré des rencontres sportives et de l’émulation que ce sport  m’apportait. Depuis maintenant un an, je participe à des compétitions internationales. La première, qui eu lieu à Besançon le 4 juin 2017, restera gravée dans ma mémoire, ayant pu grimper sur la première marche du podium. Depuis, j’ai pu me rendre à Altafulla (Espagne) le 2 juillet dernier où j'ai terminé 3ème, ainsi qu'à Iseo (Italie) le 7 juillet dernier où j'ai atteint la seconde marche du podium.  Quelles qu'elles soient, ces courses m'ont permis d'engranger l’expérience indispensable à la poursuite de ma carrière. Il me reste encore un long chemin à parcourir pour atteindre mon but, à savoir une qualification pour les prochains jeux paralympique de Tokyo en 2020. Afin d’espérer y parvenir, je dois accéder à de nouvelles compétitions internationales de haut niveau, tels les Championnats d'Europe ou bien encore les Championnats du Monde. Pour se faire et ainsi réaliser mon rêve d’une belle performance aux Jeux Olympiques en 2020, j’ai besoin de votre aide, de votre soutien financier. Il me permettrait de couvrir mes frais de déplacement en stages, en compétitions, mais également l’entretien régulier de mon matériel. Je suis donc à la recherche de sponsors qui pourraient m’assurer un partenariat financier et/ou matériel mais en attendant, toute aide est la bienvenue. Aidez-moi à partager ce rêve…afin qu’il devienne réalité.Partagez sans modération… Merci!!Facebook Page: Mona Francis ParaTriathlete Mona GOAL TOKYO 2020: Hello, my name is Mona Francis, i'm a 26years old Para-triathlete.

Unterstuetzung für das Twiga Vision Projekt 2.0

Unterstuetzung für das Twiga Vision Projekt 2.0

Anmerkung: Leider ist unsere erste Spendenseite aufgrund eines Fehlers inaktiv. Keine Sorge! Alle vorherigen Spenden sind bereits im Projekt eingesetzt worden und nicht verloren gegangen. Ab jetzt könnt Ihr hier auf der neuen Seite spenden. Entschuldigt die Umstände und vielen Dank für eure Unterstützung! Euer Twiga-Team  Liebe Familie und Freunde, liebe Bekannte und Unbekannte,  herzlich willkommen und vielen Dank für euer Interesse am Twiga Vision Tanzania Projekt!Als Freiwillige helfen wir hier in Arusha in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Leiter Daniphord sowie den freiwilligen Lehrerinnen dabei, einen geschützten Raum zum Spielen und Lernen für Kinder und Jugendliche zu schaffen. Um dies zu ermöglichen, sind wir sehr auf Unterstützung angewiesen.Wir konnten bereits einiges mithilfe der Spendengelder bewirken und freuen uns über:einen farbenfrohen Klassenraum,eine Trennwand, die es ermöglicht, in zwei Teilräumen zu spielen und zu unterrichten,einen Spielplatz (im Umbau) hinter dem Twiga Haus, welcher zur Sicherheit der Kinder mit Rindenmulch befüllt wurde sowieeine Tafel, welche gerade im Youth Program mit Freude genutzt wird.Noch vor wenigen Monaten bestand das Twiga lediglich aus vier unverputzten Wänden ohne Fußboden, ein paar Holzbänken und einer steinigen, vermüllten Fläche, die als Spielplatz diente.Die Spenden werden also in jedem Fall sinnvoll genutzt und wir sind mehr als dankbar, für die bisherige Unterstützung!Damit es so toll weitergehen kann, möchten wir euch mit aktuellen Bildern auf dem Laufenden halten und um weitere Spenden bitten, da noch immer vieles fehlt. Asante sana für eure Mithilfe, euer Twiga Team  * Was will Twiga Vision Tanzania bewirken? - Das Twiga Vision Tanzania Projekt unterstützt vor allem Mütter und Frauen dabei, unabhängig eine berufliche Karriere einzuschlagen, damit sie in der tansanischen Gesellschaft eine Chance haben. Vor allem ihre Bildung leidet sehr unter der fehlenden Gleichberechtigung und den immernoch starken Geschlechterrollen. Um die Frauen zu entlasten und ihnen Zeit für ihre Weiterbildung zu geben, kümmert sich das Projekt um ihre Kinder und deren Schulbildung. Außerdem werden die Frauen teilweise finanziell unterstützt und im Arbeitsleben beraten. Für mehr Infos: http://twigavisiontanzania.org * Wofür ist die Spende genau? - Dem Projekt fehlt zur Zeit vor allem schulisches Equipment und Budget. Wir möchten die Räume zu richtigen Klassenräumen machen und sind gerade dabei, für jeden Tag Frühstück zu organisieren. Da Essen hier knapp ist, würden wir nicht nur den Kindern, sondern auch deren Familien eine große Freude bereiten, indem die Kinder bei uns eine geregelte Mahlzeit bekommen. * Kommt meine Spende an? - Ja! Alle Bezahlungen sind sicher mit SofortÜberweisung, VISA, Mastercard oder Giropay. Wir können diese dann direkt vor Ort abheben und sie eigenhändig ins Projekt geben bzw. sofort an den Stellen einsetzen, wo sie gebraucht werden. * Wieviel soll ich spenden? - Gebt soviel Ihr möchtet und könnt. Bedenkt dabei, dass in Tansania bereits 10€ viel Geld sind und schon einiges realisieren können.  Wir bedanken uns im Namen der Frauen und Kinder für jede einzelne Spende!
