Refugee Sharing Session with UNHCR and IOM staff and Global Perspectives and Research high school students as the start of a campaign - first projects have been joining a FUTSAL (soccer) friendly match and inviting refugee children to join the school's Halloween event.
Each month in the school year, our student leaders will collect 5,000 Rp (about 30 cents) from each student in Grades 4-12. These students are entered to win a pizza party, raffle ticket or dress down day for participating. Once per term, our Student Council and other students (ex. band members to perform) will visit the orphanage to play games/activities with the children, share lunch together and present the donations to pay for their school fees.
This year, as a part of my NHS project, I am planning to teach dance lessons at a local YMCA, for free. These lessons are intended for those who cannot afford to attend an actual dance school. My goal is to use my extensive dance experience as a way to reach out and give back to other members of the community. Inspiration for this project comes from Misty Copeland, an acclaimed dancer who came from an unstable and struggling household, but found her passion for dance at charity ballet lessons. So, I hope to replicate and honor her story making dance available to everyone.
We haven't planned all of them, but so far, we've participated in the World Peace Day, "I Will" Campaign in September and the Red Ribbon Brigade for the Troops. (We made them and wear them every Friday in honor and rememberance.)
This project will support the communities that utilize the community center and ensure that the community center remains a lively and accessible space to the various individuals in the community that utilize it.
i will buy sun hats and provide to my community albinos students of primary and secondary to reduce the effect of sun rays during day time especial in summer time.
Me and Nayoun from S. Korea will be creating an international, online video database with videos from projects from all over the world, so anyone can have access and watch them. You can inspire and be inspired! Anyone can send their video as long as it shows a project done by them, regarding animals, people or the environment. In order for your video to be featured, you must plant a tree and record it at the end of the video! In that way, more trees will be planted and everyone will benefit from this action!
We will seperate our project in 3 discrepant sections. The first one will be about pollution in the forest, since people scatter litter all over the landscape. The following one will be about the never-ending fires in it. People keep doing it even though it is forbidden to light up one no matter your intentions, leading to numbers of conflagrations to increase constantly. The last section will be abput the stray animals that are wandering all over the village, even in the forest, dying from starvation or in the cases of ''Fourni'' by hunters shooting them accidentally or even on purpose.
The students have started their garden with growing cabbages. They have put them in pots at this point and taking good care of them. Their plan is to create garden beds to transfer these plants and take care of them from there. They will share the harvested cabbages with the families that need them. They are sharing this with their family and friends, so they can start a garden at their home too. The students will be collecting photos of the plants/crops to see how successful their gardens are.
Ellie’s Offering is a charitable shoe collection program inspired by the servant heart and unwavering generosity of my granny, Mary Ellen Rhoden (Ellie). New and gently worn shoes for all ages are collected and distributed to areas with the most pressing needs, such as relief in the wake of natural disasters. We will collect shoes in Stuart, and then distribute them locally to the almost 2000 homeless residents, or transport them to other areas of need.
