I got 99 Problems and Money is 1!   (published in Belize)

It's almost the end of the year, and we are roughly a month away from 2018! I could hardly wait to go to Belize. Although I was born and raised in the Philippines and moved to Worcester, Massachusetts at the age of 9, this will be my first time going "abroad" or be away from home. The trip is absolutely costly, majority of which go towards the flight and to the organization itself because projects wouldn't be possible without the financial support from outside sources. Because essentially, what's the point of volunteering/interning when you have nowhere to volunteer in? Projects Abroad provides that opportunity but being able to start projects in a country, AND having paid staff who overlooks these projects, is unquestionably not free.


Well... here's what I ended up doing: 


(The above photo is a screenshot of my Fundraising Page on Facebook.) 

I was looking over my budget and realized that I would simply run short. However, it doesn't hurt to reach out to family, friends, co-workers, loved ones, who will support you through your endeavors. Hence why I humbly began a fundraising page on Facebook. It's a great platform for fundraising (minus the fees and taxes which I totally  despise). A fundraising page on Facebook is basically equal to an events page because you get to invite people whom are already on your friends list. You could also promote it by sharing the page on your newsfeed as much as you'd like, AND update your supporters every now and then. It's awesome! So I highly suggest utilizing Facebook because it maximizes the reach of social media. 

So anyways, as of today, I am approximately 3 weeks away from the deadline of dues, and in less than TWO weeks I've raised about 45% of my total goal, almost halfway there! I am so overwhelmed by the love and support!!! There are immensely kind people everywhere and it never hurts to ask for assistance, for as long as you remain grateful!

Yatiris on line (By Mariel Torrez M. Desk Officer Bolivia)   (published in Bolivia)

Globalization is everywhere and it doesn’t matter where you are, living in an apartment in New York or in small cottage in the middle of the Andes you will find it. Who can tell it better the newest phenomenon in Bolivian face books: yatiris online? A new application which unravels through a computer the mysterious messages of the coca leaves. You don’t need to visit those wise man called yatitirs to get your answer from the almighty spirits, you just have to click on the right place and your forecast is done!!

Of course, for many people this is a joke, something similar to the famous “Eight ball”. Funny but not serious. Besides who can tell you that Mark Zuckerberg is not behind those messages? Just kidding. I am not with the traditionalist. If I don’t have time I check yatiris on line, for laughing, for advise, for entertaining purposes, but I have time I talk a walk for the Witches Alley in the popular market of La Pampa and consult a real and certificated aymara fortune teller. My advice for foreign people, try both of them, on line and real ones. Who knows, maybe the message of the coca leaves doesn’t care about the media and like everything else in this world they got globalized.


* Yatiri is a wise man for the aymaras who have the ability to read the hidden messages of the coca leaves.

* Aymaras are one of the indigenous nations that live Bolivia.
