Wheelchair donation by care volunteer Samantha Zennipman   (published in Vietnam)

October 10, 2014 by   Comments(0)

, , ,

A meaningful donation has been realized by care volunteer Samantha Zennipman (Netherlands). She worked as a care volunteer in Thuy An placement - an education and rehabilitation center for handicapped children where she had the chance to meet with and help a lot of mentally and physically disabled children. Feeling deeply sympathetic with a specific case of a 23-year-old boy (named Hung) who suffers from celebral palsy since birth, Samantha wanted to get him a new wheelchair to replace the old and broken one.

 

This is Hung sitting in his new wheelchair: more comfortably and happily!

People who have a natural love for charity act usually don't need recognition or praise. We believe Samantha is one of them - however, Projects Abroad Vietnam would still like to give her our shoutout and thank for this great act Samantha did. It's not simply just a donated wheelchair, it also well reflects the thoughtfulness and care our volunteer gives to the unlucky children and people she meets. :)

We'd love to send a big thank and shoutout to physiotherapy volunteer Jarrah Nesbitt (Australia) for her pre-arrival efforts to collect children clothes and raise fund to buy school supplies for the orphaned children at the placement she works in Vietnam. The pack has arrived in Hanoi (Vietnam) and Jarrah and her fellow volunteers at the placement have been busy distributing them to everyone at Bo De placement. Let's look at the happy faces of the children in the pretty clothes and with the new pens, pencils and other stationeries as they would be a big encouragement and of great help for the pre-school children:

Zoe Butler, an Australian Teaching Volunteer donated clothing to 50 students from the Maasai School on her last day of work. Zoe was in Arusha for 3 months. The Maasai School is a teaching placement that is fully funded by Projects Abroad. The school is located in a very poor community and the porridge lunch that is served during the school day is often the only meal that the chlidren receive. Several building volunteers, who are currently working on the construction of a new facility for the students, joined Zoe to support the donation day.

Donation news: a new soccer field fence for Villa Esparanza Orphanage   (published in Bolivia)

April 30, 2014 by   Comments(0)

, , ,

When we are asked by volunteers about donations, we always advise them to wait until they get to our country and meet the children in order to identify by themselves the areas on which their help is the most needed.

This was Ludovic Supiot’s case, a French volunteer that came to Bolivia with the intention of doing something else with some extra funds at his disposal.

It didn't take him too long to realize that the children of the orphanage where he was working needed a fence around the soccer field on which they played because they used to lose their balls all the time among the wild bushes of a hill nearby.

These, as any other child, always tried to get back their balls, but ended up with bruises and scratches instead.

So Ludovic talked to his supervisor about it, and the two of them began to figure out the best way to implement his idea, and after some months of planning and building, the fence was finally concluded to children's delight.

Well done Ludovic!

Microfinance Project supports women’s group with adjustable glasses   (published in Tanzania)

by Niko Winkel

Max Palmqvist (Sweden), one of the team members of the Microfinance Project, discovered on the internet that it’s possible to order adjustable glasses. It is a brand new invention. The glasses have buttons on the outer side of both the left and the right frame. You can adjust the sight per glass the same way you sharpen your sight using binoculars. Max ordered 20 pairs of glasses and they arrived in Arusha one week ago.

The thought behind the order was the fact that the volunteers from the Microfinance Project realized that the women have difficulties writing down all of their business figures as a result of bad eyesight. Most of the supported women are between 40 and 60 years old and only a few of them wear glasses. It is most likely that lots of them need glasses, although they don’t have them.

Last week, the Microfinance Team acted as eye doctors and checked the eyes of some of the women. It appeared that some women improved their vision using the glasses. They were very happy with the glasses. Max donated the glasses to some of the women as a means of selling to others and thus increasing their personal income. Part of the profit is for themselves.

Let There Be Light   (published in Tanzania)

Matthew Sekuloff (23) Australia

My professional background is an electrician and I have been working as one since 2007. This is the first time I have done volunteer work, but I do electrical work in mining, commercial and housing at home. I did 3 years at technical college (only 8 weeks a year) I chose to volunteer to try something different. I only decided to do two weeks as I was unsure if volunteering was something I would like. But now I wish I stayed for longer. During the two weeks of work at Engikaret I repaired many faults on the lighting fed from the generator. I also helped install a solar panel, digging trenches for building footings, and mixing cement for the laboratory floor. I donated a large solar panel at about 600,000 Tanzanian Shillings. And it was a personal donation. The most challenging part of the project was adapting to work without the use of electricity. At home I am so used to having power tools for every type of job, but at Engikaret everything was done by hand which made it extremely hard work in the heat. The best part was working with the locals and learning how to work without the use of modern technology. Living with the other volunteers was great and Father Renatus is a very funny person who treats us very well. The landscape was very dry, windy and dusty but something that you can easily get used to. Advice for other volunteers is to be prepared for very physical and hard work. After my two weeks work I traveled to Zanzibar, Tukuyu, Mbeya and Sumbawanga. The most memorable experience was traveling south west Tanzania. Everything about it was great! The people were friendly and helpful, there were no worries with anything and the scenery was incredible.

Tanzania made quite an impression on Amy and she wanted to give something back in return. She was able to raise $700 in her home country with a request for the donation to be used to support a special needs school. Projects Abroad Tanzania offers a teaching placement at Patandi Special Needs School in Arusha, where volunteers work with a small group of hearing impaired, visually impaired, intellectually impaired and autistic children. At the request of the staff from the school, Projects Abroad purchased items which are in low supply and typically not affordable to the school.

  • 4 Jumping Ropes
  • 2 Footballs + pump
  • 2 Netballs
  • 5,000 sheets of white paper
