Teach Me Teacher (The Happy Children Project)

Our research shows that many resource constrained communities and parents especially, are forced to make hard choices between basic necessities such as education (books, pencils, school uniform, etc.) or food for the family (medical bills, poor accommodation, etc). While many rural people, who spend relatively more money on healthcare, completely lack some disposable income for schooling, small business and communication thus perpetuating the cycle of poverty.

We at www.servicetomankindfoundation.com intend;
•To establish a technical vocation school for young women offering intensive instruction and apprentices in software engineering and development, electronics, and other skilled areas in great demand in Palestine’s growing ICT and ICT-using industries.

•Helping women go to college: post-secondary education opens the door to the future for women and their families. Programmes equip women with academic, math, English; financial and practical skills they need to enter and succeed in college.

•To build the capacities of small groups in target regions to support districts/communities produce the food that they need to achieve baseline food security with sustainable management of natural resources.

•To provide capacities to intermediary women and girls groups to improve enterprise development activities of target groups to have sufficient incomes to achieve baseline income security levels from sustainable enterprise activities or employment that does not harm their health or damage the environment.

•To continue promoting business mentoring in a society where women entrepreneurs are facing tough economic, social and environmental circumstances - often with little or no support since many single parents (women) in the slums are migrants from other areas of the country unsuccessfully trying to find work in the fast-paced Ghanaian capital. Some estimates put unemployment rates in poor neighbourhoods at more than 30 percent.

We aim to inspire a sense of active citizenship, solidarity and tolerance among young people and to involve them in shaping their future and that of their communities at large.

We believe volunteers help address many of the most important challenges facing global communities and we intend to involve international volunteers through a youth/sports/cultural exchange programmes for positive change in our communities.

We welcome international volunteers to our team. We believe that a motivated international volunteer could give a big extra input to our activities, by bringing in new experiences, new knowledge, ideas and new energy that could give a new perspective to our activities especially our youth capacity building efforts that will go a long way to help in developing further our current development projects. Working with young people (youth) including our local volunteers is a manifestation of what we aim to develop in the youth by means of exposure.

Join us today...https://www.givingway.com/organization/hope-and-service-to-mankind-foundation

•Helping young people to live healthy and active lives and to be the best they can be. Sport can be used as a great way to help them achieve this.
•Promoting and marketing of the organisations charity activities
•Computer education will help build children confidence and self-esteem to aspire for decent livelihoods, for honest and dignified positions in society through the right use of the information age based on right skills acquired by them in school at the right time. Teach them all about computers and its use.

Global giving Accelerator, help us share with your networks and donate

Uganda's Teso region has suffered innumerable times through violence - including several rebellious threats and coups - and erratic climatic conditions such as droughts and floods, resulting in a high incidence of poverty, unemployment, food insecurity, malnutrition, lack of general know-how, HIV/AIDS, famine, widows, orphans and an increase in people with disabilities. Innovative Youth with Action Uganda (IYAU) is a nonprofit that is dedicated to empowering these communities so they defeat their vulnerability and abandon their reactive lifestyle, of living from crisis to crisis, in exchange for a proactive one of choices and planning.
Powerful and sustainable change in impoverished communities is only possible when the people targeted are themselves the primary actors of their own transformation. We work to empower them with the tools and knowledge they need that will allow them to overcome the many challenges they face and focus on creating innovative sustainable business initiatives. It is such well-founded initiatives that create jobs and, in turn, ensure a lasting more prosperous society. As the widely-repeated adage has taught us, IYAU will help provide the hook, or access to it, that then empowers and allows the people to fish for themselves.
The GlobalGiving foundation selected us to participate in its June 2017 accelerator, a fundraising opportunity for nonprofits around the world (https://www.globalgivin.org/accelerator).
If we raise $5,000 from 40 different donors for our Scaling Up Agricultural Production project by the end of this month, we will be featured permanently on the GlobalGiving website where we will have the potential to benefit from corporate relationships, exposure to a new donor network, and access to dozens of online fundraising tools.
If you believe in our work, please help us reach the $5,000 mark, and be one of the first people to make a donation at: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/scaling-up-agricultural-production/ or Share your project on Facebook or Twitter using this URL: http://goto.gg/27679
Your donation will help respond to the challenges exacerbating the poverty of 500 poor women farmers in Eastern Uganda. It will empower them to scale up agricultural production and market access for improved food security and income generation, by organizing them into groups, providing them with improved seed and information on markets, training them on better farming practices, and post-harvest handling and introducing to them solar-powered water pumps for irrigation.
You can find out more about what we do from our website, www.iyau.org, and YouTube channel, Innovative Youth with Action Uganda, or follow us on Facebook, @IYAUganda, or Twitter @IYAUganda2014.
We are most grateful for your attention and hope you could share this message with your networks, friends and family! Thank you!
Feel free to contact us for more information.
Many thanks!

Sustainable Tourism - Volunteering in Asia

Hi, I have been in contact with an NGO in Cambodia called CCDO. I was wondering if you are familiar with this NGO? Before I make any decision to go for a 3-6 month volunteer experience I want to be 100% convinced about the organisation. I would have to pay an application fee ( to middle man), accommodation, meals etc. Many thanks in advance for your your advise.

The plastic bottle problem.

Now this discussion is not directly about volunteering, but is something that everyone should think about before traveling.
This is about my number 1 dislike in this world, rubbish. Practically everyone in the world contributes to rubbish, knowingly or by indirect ways. It‘s almost impossible to not create waste in our society these days, the majority of food comes wrapped and when not, there‘s always a carbon footprint attached to it.

While traveling through SEA for 4 months last year, we bought at least 2 bottles of water a day. That‘s 240 bottles, but more likely we drank over 400 in our travels. Now consider that there is no recycling there also, so they all were burnt on the side of the street, if not floating somewhere in the ocean. Disgusting.

It‘s easy to counter this though buy purchasing and using a water filter. We brought our Sawyer Squeeze (https://sawyer.com/products/sawyer-squeeze-filter-system-sp131/) with us to Nepal and spent 2 months traveling without buying a single bottle. Also Lifstraw (http://lifestraw.com) has great products for water filtration. The filters do cost a bit of money, for $25 USD for a Sawyer filter, but this is a small cost to pay to stop creating waste.

Please consider this when planning your trip to wherever you go, most places at least have access to running water that can be filtered.

Change my life and start volunteering

Hi everyone,

Well, I'm actually living a life I don't like anymore, and I decided I had to leave everything and start volunteering. I was very disappointed at first in my researches because I couldn't find any volunteer position without any exorbitant fees. I really understand that non-profit organization have no money at all, but when you offer your time and your skills, I think it's normal to have no fees. You work for free but you have a bed and meals. But I can uderstand if there are a few fees, but $2000 for a 2 weeks volunteer position, that's a no no!

So, in a few weeks I'm ready to go, so happy to help worldwide, I want to experience many things and help any kind of organization in need. But well, when you don't know anything about this world, I have to say this is so difficult to know where to find any informations. I'm very happy to have found this website, plus I can speak with other volunteers. So here is my question:

Do you guys have volunteered somewhere and had a great experience you would recommand me?

on 24/12/2016
Casa do Caminho
We couldn't agree more. Here at Casa do Caminho we believe that volunteer work and financial resources for the organization are two separate things and should not be mixed. It is enough that the volunteer is contributing his time and effort to help us, instead of working at an organization where they could receive a salary. That is why we don't charge any fees to our volunteers, we only require them to be able to pay their airplane tickets and Visa, and we provide housing and food for them.
What we really do ask from them is a long term commitment to the project, and dedication to their work (ie. they must come with a real willingness to help our organization, and not as an excuse to do some tourism in Brasil).
