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

November 24, 2017 by   Comments(0)

, , ,

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:

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!

Generous donations for underprivileged children from physiotherapy volunteer Jarrah Nesbitt   (published in Vietnam)

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:

A Day of Video Games

A Day of Video Games.

Whilst my family is providing most of the funds for the trip, I am planning on holding various fundraising events through my school and community. On Saturday 1st February, I invited a group of friends over for a fundraising video game tournament. You may have noticed my slightly nerdy passion for video games, and my friends, gamers or not, were all willing to pick up a controller for charity. With a close friend kindly letting me borrow his console, we set up two TV's, two consoles, and a lot of snacks. The event was a success, with everyone taking part in games such as Mortal Kombat, Call Of Duty, and Mario Kart, we certainly put the fun back into fundraising (Dear me, that was cheesy; I promise it won't happen again). After an afternoon of geeky brilliance, and far too much shouting at a TV screen, the day was over. All that now left was the memory of a fun day, some money towards my trip, and the slightly stale smell of teenager in my living room.

Two Weeks in Cape Town develops into so much more..   (published in South Africa)

Julien Richard was so touched by his experiences on the Two Week Special Human Rights programme in Cape Town that he has started his own organisation, Rainbow Nation Foundation.

He writes, "The goal of the project is to raise money to help Pastor James E. Lewis buy a farm, which will be used as a rehabilitation centre for people in critical state. Furthermore, the foundation will try to collect books, covers, clothes and other necessities. The books will be given to a school library in Capricorn (Cape Town township) and the rest will be distributed to the people in desperate need". Pastor James has a church in Vrygrond where he preaches and holds soup kitchens to help the community.

We love when volunteers take initiative, let's share it. If you'd like to donaate, you can find out more about the Rainbow Nation Foundation and contact Julien here.

Countdown to Mawala IT Centre Fundraiser   (published in Sri Lanka)

October 28, 2010 by   Comments(0)

, ,

It's just a week until our special Mawala IT Centre fundraiser... Here's a bit of background about the centre and how our PRO volunteer Tony Martin decided to organise this event!

Mawala IT Centre wholly owned and run Projects Abroad has awarded certificates of competence in basic IT subjects to over 1,500 students in Kalutara District since it opened in 2003 for FREE OF CHARGE with the help of Projects Abroad Volunteers.

Now an urgent upgrade of the computer equipment at the Centre is needed. Tony, one of our volunteers spending two months at the Centre, has initiated a campaign to raise Rs.250,000 (more than $ 2000) by mid November. 

All donations are welcome. Please visit our Facebook page for more details!
