Hello I am Fatima from Iran, a 3rd year pharmacy student at Semmelweis University. Unfortunately I lost my father which was our family's main income provider and with this pandemic situation everything went out of control and my mother can not support me financially anymore. We are suddenly unable to provide the additional funds I'll need for finishing my studies abroad. I am devastated and helpless and am using my last option to fulfill my career. It is my sincere wish to attend university this fall and that is in jeopardy now.Your help and support would mean a world to me and it would change my life completely.Thank youFatemeh
The loss of our friend and colleague Pieter van Puymbroeck shocked and devastated us all. "Pupi" passed away too soon, only 38 years, old and is survived by his son, Manten, age 8.Manten now will have to get big without his amazing father'slove, without his smart father's advice, without his dynamic father's energy.It is a dramatic and unfortunate situation for the boy.Nothing can compensate for his loss or replace this unique man he lost for his future. Manten, your growing-up came way too soon. Our hearts and best wishes are with you.Today, we ask you, Pieter's acquaintances, friends, and colleagues, to help move future obstacles to getting a good education out of Manten's way by supporting this fundraiser and because Pieter would have done anything for his "Puma" and "kabouter" Manten.Your small gift today will mean a lot for Manten's future. Thank you very much! - The Friends and Colleagues of Pieter Please celebrate his life with us in the following video

Bienvenue sur cette cagnotte !Ici vous pouvez directement et en un clic, participer à cette cagnotte.* Chacun participe du montant qu'il souhaite.* Tous les paiements sont sécurisésSalam Alaikom, ici un lien pour l’école Siraj al-Quds, à Jérusalem-Est, très pauvre qu'on a pu visiter lors de notre séjour en Palestine pour qu’elle puisse avoir ses locaux et fournir des services d'éducation et de développement de qualité aux enfants malvoyants. Son loyer à l’état israélien est grandiloquent et elle n'a aucune aide du fait qu’elle enseigne notamment le coran. On a été touché par beaucoup de causes lors de notre voyage mais c’est l’une des seules qui n’avait pas une grosse communication à son actif. Participez de ce que vous pouvez en ce mois sain. Votre don servira à poursuivre le travail vital de l’École, en offrant aux étudiants une chance égale de participer à leurs communautés. Rendons le sourire et l'espoir à ces enfants, nous qui avons tout sans patience et eux qui avec patience attendent tout. Si vous ne pouvez pas vous le permettre au moins ne les oubliez pas dans vos douaas. Baraka ALLAH fikoum !
Dear All, On September 15, 2020 our colleague and friend Alexander (Sasha) Filatov passed away surrounded by his family. He leaves behind his loving wife and their two amazing young children.If you knew Sasha, you know about his larger than life heart and his dedication to his family and work. He was one of the most hard-working people we know, always there to help and provide any support needed.Because Sasha is so well loved by his co-workers and friends, we have been flooded with questions about what can be done to help. We have created this voluntary fundraiser to help provide his wife and children with some support in these difficult times.Thank you.Katie Shan, Ruth McAuley, Torsten Bartsch, Alexey Shpikalov, Vassilissa Rybak and Vicki Kramer

Mon rêve a toujours été de piloter et de devenir pilote professionnel. les études coûtent très cher, j'ai travaillé quelques années pour mettre de l'argent de côté et ainsi pouvoir les commencer.J'ai débuté celle-ci en 2015.Après 4 ans, j'ai obtenu la totalité de mes licences. Bloquée par la situation sanitaire, je n'ai pas trouvé de boulot. Nous sortons tout doucement de cette mauvaise période et j'ai la chance de réaliser mon rêve en étant engagée dans une compagnie.Il me reste une dernière étape à franchir : la formation sur l'avion que je vais piloter en compagnie. Il y a quelques années, les compagnies payaient celle-ci . Mais maintenant qu'il y a beaucoup de pilotes sur le marché et peu de poste disponible, c'est au candidat de payer sa propre qualification.

Dear friends, colleagues, clients and to all the followers of this beautiful project,For 28 years, the "Nilkantha Secondary Boarding school" has welcomed students into its classes and orphanage, and accompanied them until they pass their exams with success. The principal of the school, Kumari Lama, is a brave woman that has heart and who has been leading the school through many hardships including the 2015 earthquake and now, the Covid 19 pandemic. Following the recent class closures decided by the Nepalese government, we have set up online courses but only 50% of the pupils have access to it, the others having no smartphones or computers and no means to buy them.On June 20, 2021, we decided to draw up a list of the poorest students in the school who do not have access to online courses and who have returned to the hills and villages without being able to continue their studies. All students on this list will receive a free telephone and an internet subscription for the duration of their isolation. The royalties from our books published by the Editions du Moniteur allow us to finance some of the smartphones needed for this project and the most needy students have already received them. In order to be able to provide phones to them all, we need your help. If you are friends from Nepal, if you know the school or if this project touches you, you can contribute and give these children a future.We will keep you informed of the highlights of this project and we will share with you the immense joy of the students and their families.Thanking you in advance on behalf of them !********************************************************************************************************Chers amis, collègues, clients et à tous ceux qui suivent ce beau projet,Depuis 28 ans, la « Nilkantha Secondary Boarding school » accueille dans ses classes et son orphelinat des élèves qu’elle accompagne jusqu’à la réussite des examens. La directrice de l’école, Kumari Lama, est une femme de cœur et de courage. Ainsi, l’école a traversé de nombreuses épreuves parmi lesquelles le séisme de 2015 et maintenant, l’épidémie de Covid 19. Suite aux fermetures de classes décidées par le gouvernement Népalais, nous avons mis en place des cours en ligne mais seul 50 % des élèves y ont accès, les autres n’ayant pas de smartphones ni d’ordinateurs et aucun moyens pour en acheter.Le 20 juin 2021, nous décidons d’établir une liste des élèves les plus pauvres de l’école qui n’ont pas d’accès aux cours en ligne et qui sont repartis dans les collines et les villages sans pouvoir poursuivre leurs études. Tous les élèves de cette liste recevront un téléphone gratuit ainsi qu’un abonnement internet pour la durée de leur isolement. Les droits d’auteur de nos ouvrages publiés aux éditions du Moniteur nous permettent de financer une partie des smartphones nécessaires à ce projet et les élèves les plus nécessiteux les ont déjà reçus. Pour pouvoir fournir des téléphones à tous sans exception, nous avons besoin de votre aide. Si vous êtes amis du Népal, si vous connaissez l’école ou si ce projet vous touche, vous pouvez y contribuer et donner à ces enfants un avenir.Nous vous tiendrons informés des moments forts de ce projet et nous partagerons avec vous la joie immense des élèves et de leurs familles.Merci d’avance pour eux !

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!We are Judit and Jona and we are raising funds to support an Indian family that we consider like our own one, to finance 7 years school for Aruni, a 10-year-old girl, and Rajni's (19) and Tanuja's (17) university. We met Dinu when we volunteered nearby his town last January and we were always welcome at his house for dinner or for a tea. We were always very happy to see his lovely niece and his nephews and to play with them. They have a very modest live. Dinu lives with his parents, 3 sisters, brother-in-law, 2 nephews and one niece. The men are the ones that work outside from home and earn the money. They rely on the high season to earn as much money as possible, to have enough during the lower season. Women look after the house and the kids. Eventhough they have enough to live, it is a struggle to pay for a proper education for the kids and for the youngest sisters that just started university. We believe that now is our time to help them. Aruni is 10 years old, she's very intelligent and a very extrovert kid. She attends a public school and receives a standard education and very basic English classes. She has a very high potential and she deserves a better school. Bare in mind that schools in India go from very basic, to acceptable or if you can afford it, you can pay for a private school where you will receive a very good education. It is a shame that public education hasn't good standards, and this is why Aruni's family would like her to go to a semi private school (which is just 88€/year). Rajni (19) and Tanuja (17) are also very intelligent, caring and very curious women that have big dreams for their future. They refused to marry in a young age and instead go to university. To receive a good education in India means that you will have higher chances to get a better job in the future and that you will be able to become an educated and an independent woman.They both are very engaged within their community, where they teach women about different topics. As we mentioned above, education leaves ignorance behind and empower women to have the courage to try to change a bit the dynamics of their society. In 2020 we are trying to summon up money for at least one year of education for all the three: * 7 years school education for Aruni = 614€Monthly tuition fee Rs 600 (7,3€) = 88€/year * 3 years university for Tanuja and Rajni = 3.105€Admission Rs 3300 (40€)Registration fee (first year) Rs 2000 (24€)Form fee Rs 2500 (30,5€)Books + material Rs 4500 (55€)Monthly transportation fee Rs 1600 (20€) or 240€/yearMontly tuition class fee Rs 1000 (12€) or 144€/yearPer person/3 years: 509,5€/year and 533,5€ first year = 1.552,5€ First year: 1155€ Wetruely believe that this wonderful people deserve a better future and there is no better way of granting this than getting a proper education. Do you help us? We trust Leetchi as it is a transparent platform and the entire amount will be transfered to the purpose mentioned above. Dinu and his family can't thank you enough for this. Thank you very much :) Judit and Jona
Bonjour à toutes et à tous,Wanjira m'a aidé pendant plus de deux ans à effectuer mes recherches sur le versant est du Mont Kenya entre 2010 et 2012 lorsque j'étais en thèse. A l'époque, elle enseignait dans l'école primaire du village car elle faisait partie des rares personnes à avoir été au collège. Depuis, Wanjira a repris ses études grace à ses économies, et a passé l'équivalent du bac.A 35 ans, elle vit dans le village de Kabururu avec sa mère et la famille de son frère. Aujourdhui, elle souhaite poursuivre à l'Université pour obtenir un diplôme en éducation des adultes et développement communautaire qui lui ouvrira d'avantage d'opportunités d'accéder à un emploi correct. Je lance donc cette cagnotte pour réunir la somme nécessaire à son inscription en première année. Dans la zone du Mont Kenya comme dans bon nombre de régions rurales en Afrique, les jeunes femmes accèdent très difficilement à l'éducation. Je connais le parcours de vie difficile de Wanjira, dans une zone où les conditions de vie sont rudes, notamment pour les femmes car l'alcoolisme entraine des violences conjugales. Je la sais digne de confiance, et je souhaite faire mon possible pour l'accompagner dans son parcours courageux.Si vous le pouvez, aidez là en contribuant - même de 10 ou 15 euros - pour lui permettre de poursuivre ses études à l'Université de Chuka.Wanjira s'engage à envoyer un bref compre rendu à la fin de chaque semestre.Merci !Vanesse Lettre de Wanjira: Bonjour, je suis Catherine wanjira, je vis à Kabururu dans l'est du Kenya. Et j'ai besoin de votre soutien pour suivre une formation diplômante en éducation des adultes et développement communautaire (CBC). Cela me donnera une chance de pouvoir servir ma communauté et me permettra d'obtenir un bon emploi, rémunéré correctement, ce qui améliorera mon niveau de vie et celui de ma famille. Le CBC est un nouveau programme introduit par notre gouvernement pour renforcer les capacités des membres des communautés rurales, et développer leurs compétences.En suivant cette formation, je souhaite pouvoir aider les membres de ma communauté à améliorer leurs conditions de vie en renforçant leurs compétences, notamment en les accompagnant pour améliorer leurs méthodes d'agriculture afin d'obtenir de meilleurs rendements. Ce programme aidera également les enfants suivant le programme CBC à faire leurs devoirs et à obtenir de meilleurs résultats. Pour ma première année d'étude, j'ai besoin de réunir 254 500 Ksh, soit 1 985 €. Je peux contribuer à 10% de ce montant avec mes économies. Ce montant inclue les frais suivants:- Frais d'inscription: Session 1 - Ksh. 50000 (390 €)Session 2 - Ksh. 39500 (308 €)-Frais de traitement de la demande - Ksh. 5000 (39 €)-Transport - Ksh. 15000 (117 €)-Hébergement - KSh 40000 par session, soit Ksh. 10000 par mois pendant 8 mois. (624 €)-Ordinateur portable - Ksh. 65000 (507 €)Je m'engage à vous fournir un compte rendu des enseignements suivis à l'issue de chaque semestre.Merci pour votre soutien,Catherine Wanjira
Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!With just 1-click you can help a student cover school fees and expenses I am a refugee from Cameroon living in the Vathy refugee camp in Samos, Greece. Due to my current legal status I am unable to work, however I volunteer six days a week as an interpreter for the medical organisation Med’EqualiTeam, who provide free primary healthcare to the refugee population living in the camp and the town of Vathy. I have worked with the organisation since November 2019, which is an example of my commitment to the project and my desire to work. I want to further my education in order to have access to wider job prospects in the future. I wish to contribute to society, particularly through humanitarian work and feel further academic study would enable me to do this. The opportunity to study would allow me to use my time in Samos effectively and provide me with something to work towards which will enable me to successfully work in the field I wish to pursue a career in.
Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!In July 2019, Shamjhana and Shreejan started to build a learning center for poor children of the rural village Dhading.

Welcome to My Campaign for support for my Education and Health needsThis is a request for your help to get me through my studies and back to good health. To do this I need a safe place to spend the next year, and I need financial support to get this. Please read my story and share, and if you can contribute with donations, short term loans, or by referring me to other people that can support me that would be welcome. Thank you for reading on and helping me to gain a sense of security for my future. 😊 If you know me, then probably you already know this, but for those who don’t: I describe myself as a dancer and a teacher from Iran. I wish I could dance and educate others with the spirits and knowledge related to dance until the end of my lifetime, as I believe it has so much power to make changes to human lives. This is why I started studying Choreomundus Masters in Dance Knowledge, Practice and Heritage, a special programme that involves four different European Universities. I started this programme in 2018 and I was due to finish it this year in the UK, and although it has been wonderful, the current pandemic on top of other issues have meant I am far behind from finishing and therefore I need further support to complete this programme. I have encountered many challenges with my mental and physical health in the past year of my studies, and now I must find a way to achieve two goals: recover my health and complete my degree. To achieve these I need to stay close to the institutions of my programme and away from my home country that has harshly been hit by Covid19 and faced with even more of severe political hardships (started back in Nov 2019) and therefore a place of no peace and safety (for also political reasons for me personally). Also, I must find my way through all the uncertainties that surround me; I am not entitled to work legally and Covid19 has made everything in this regard even more complicated. This is why my plan to travel to Australia for a reunion with my brother is not possible at the moment. My visa for the UK ends in 3 months, and I need to go to somewhere that will let me stay, and continue studying for another year to get my life on track. Upon an offer of pure love and kindness from an academic friend in Sweden (also a traditional dancer), I am able to stay with her while I regain my health and complete my studies. I can apply for a visit permit for up to 12 months, and this should allow me to recover in peace and security for some time. Even though my friend is offering sponsorship for food and accommodation, to make sure I can gain this permit (as I am Iranian and therefore not favoured for being granted), I must also show a bank account of at least 12000 Euros (capability to survive for 12 months without her support). I am unsure yet if I will be allowed to work at all with this permit, but I cannot rely on this as a possibility despite wishing to support myself. I have saved as much as I can from my scholarship for this master’s, but with this coming to an end imminently I will not have enough without your help. Right now, I am standing in what feels like a thick fog with my suitcases packed. I must prepare myself to continue this battle, and it certainly is a battle. I am also fighting for my health at the moment (both mental and physical), trying to get treatment from an overstretched system that is running at much lower capacity due to lockdown here in the UK. This year in Sweden is my chance to get my wings back, to continue building my chances for a PhD/job next year in the subject I love; dance. HOW CAN YOU HELP? 1. Health & Education Matters: If you wish to donate to my educational and health goals, to get me through another year and help me towards my future I would be of utmost appreciation and gratefulness. You might not believe, but even 5-10 pounds per person can make a big change for my safty, health and education, if I receive from many. 2. My Residence Permit Application: I am only asking for donations. If you instead would be willing to lend me a sum to support my resinedce permit application that would help me also. The more money I have in my bank account before printing the statement for the application, the better. I can transfer this money back immediately after downloading my bank statement. Please contact me personally to discuss this if you feel able to help me in this way. MY CLOCK IS TICKING! I must hurry to submit my application by July 14th the lattest, as the waiting times may be considerably lengthy. 3. Share My Campaign: I would be so grateful if you could share this with people you know who might be able to help. 4. Contact Me: Please reach me at my email or facebook “Shouresh Pouya” for anything related to this campaign if you needed to or if you thought you have suggestions. Thank you for your time and care to read my story. Wish health, a safe place to live, and happiness for all! With love, Elnaz
Aidez Sara et Nour à apprendre le français Nos amies Sara et Nour, jeunes sœurs syriennes arrivées récemment à Lyon, veulent retrouver une vie normale après 8 ans de guerre et de peur.

THANK YOU for your support.Thanks to you we've already raised and transferred 1.300€ to the family for their first year of university and school.Let's raise money for the second year starting next September 2021! Can you help us?We are Judit and Jona and we are raising funds to support an Indian family that we consider like our own one, to finance Aruni's private school for 7 years, and Rajni's (19) and Tanuja's (17) university for 3 years. We met Dinu when we volunteered nearby his town last January and we were always welcome at his house for dinner or for a cup of tea. We were always very happy to see his lovely niece and his nephews and to play with them. They have a very modest life. Dinu lives with his parents, 3 sisters, brother-in-law, 2 nephews, and one niece.

It is a shame that public education hasn't good standards, and this is why Aruni's family wanted her to go to a private school (which is just 88€/year). Thanks to your support during the first academic year, Aruni was able to chance school and now she's attending a private school. Rajni (19) and Tanuja (17) are also very intelligent, caring, and very curious women that have big dreams for their future. They refused to marry at a young age and instead go to university. To receive a good education in India means that you will have higher chances to get a better job in the future and that you will be able to become an educated and independent woman.They both are very engaged within their community, where they teach women about women's rights and their bodies. As we mentioned above, education leaves ignorance behind and empowers women to have the courage to try to change a bit the dynamics of their society.In 2020, we funded a whole year of education raising 1300€ for the three of them. A bit more than we needed :) We want to do the same for the next semester starting in September 2021.1st year (2020): 1155€ (raised and transferred 1300€ -YEY!)2nd year (2021): 1107€ (cheaper without registration fees)3rd year (2022): 1107€4th-7th (2023-2027) for Aruni: 352€ * Expenses in more detail:7 years school education for Aruni = 614€Monthly tuition fee Rs 600 (7,3€) = 88€/year 3 years university for Tanuja and Rajni = 3.105€Admission Rs 3300 (40€)Registration fee (first year) Rs 2000 (24€)Form fee Rs 2500 (30,5€)Books + material Rs 4500 (55€)Monthly transportation fee Rs 1600 (20€) or 240€/yearMontly tuition class fee Rs 1000 (12€) or 144€/yearPer person/3 years: 509,5€/year and 533,5€ first year = 1.552,5€ We truly believe that these wonderful people deserve a better future and there is no better way of granting this than getting a proper education.

“The question is not only what planet we will leave to our youth, but what youth we will leave to our planet.” Support young adults in developing their perception of the common good, opening ways to a more solidary future. We are a greek-french couple and we have founded a center for personal and inter-personal development on the island of Aegina in Greece, Oikia Karapanou (http://www.karapanou.com/) one of the first of its kind in the country at the time of its establishment in 1995. The School Of All Relations was born out of the wish to respond to the acuteness of global disorder by offering empowerment to the young generation. Thanks to the support of over 30 volunteers and 20 trainers coming from all over the world, the School opened its doors in November 2015. SOAR promotes the education of consciousness through an exploration of the relation to self, to others and to the greater whole.We offer 4 to 6 month long, international, community rooted programs to young adults aged 18-30. Our aim is to provide them with a stepping stone towards a fruitful adulthood by supporting them in developing a grounded relation with inner and outer resources which will give them the strength and inspiration to become adults of integrity, respectful of all life, able to respond creatively to the challenges of their time.The SOAR program (link here) combines a set of workshops fostering personal development and community building interwoven with daily practices in mindfulness, body work, communication, group dynamics and more, all embedded in the deep learnings of community life. SOAR is a non-profit initiative, mainly funded by the participation fees. We do not benefit from any kind of grant or financial support. During the first two years, striving to lower as much as possible the participation fees, the hosting team worked on a completely volunteer basis.In 2015-2016 we self-funded two full scholarships for two young Greeks.In 2016-2017 we created our first crowdfunding platform and thanks to the generosity of many friends, we managed to offer 6, full or partial, scholarships.Those two first sessions, 6 months long each, had such a deep, beneficial impact on the development of our participants (See testimonies here) that we decided to continue no matter the cost. We are now working towards our upcoming session (a 4 month long one this time, January 13th-May 3rd), still on a volunteer basis for the whole of the organizing team and for some of our contributors.In parallel we are investigating ways to establish the school’s sustainability. Please help us support some young people who aspire to this opportunity but who cannot meet the financial cost. Scholarships will be granted in priority to young Greeks.Young Greeks have been struggling for years with uncertainty, lack of opportunities, unemployment and often depression within their close environment. The majority of them are highly educated and speak more than two foreign languages. However Greece’s current socio-economic environment pushes them more and more to isolation, self-doubt and a sense of powerlessness. We would particularly like to offer them a possibility to gain the skills, insights, experiences and connections that will help them give meaning to their life and empower them to resume taking initiative. By helping us to offer a scholarship not only do you contribute to the education and the well-being of an individual, but to a social change impulsed by young persons, in service of the common good.A full scholarship (covering accommodation, food, teachings, material, travel costs etc...) amounts to 5000 euros. Our wish is to be able to provide a minimum of three.Every donation is precious. There is no small amount. Even 5 euro will give us great encouragement to continue our work. We thank you for your support!
Le centre d’éducation Nolali est une association à but non lucrative située dans un village rural du Transkei, dans le sud-est de l’Afrique du Sud. Cette association a été créée par Jock Mcconnachie en 2012, dans le but d’améliorer l’éducation des enfants du village, en s’associant aux différentes écoles: Manyano, Soga et Isolomzi.J’ai eu l’occasion d’aider cette école en participant à un programme qui consiste à introduire l’anglais aux enfants entre 6 et 8 ans, à travers des ateliers lectures hebdomadaires et individuelles.Les enfants de communautés rurales, isolées, grandissent en parlant leur langue maternelle, ici le Xhosa. C’est une des langues officielles en Afrique du sud, mais parlée seulement par 18% de la population. Ils sont sensés parler anglais à l’école à partir du collège, mais personne n’est en mesure de leur apprendre, les professeurs n’étant pas formés pour enseigner, et qui ne parlent eux mêmes pas très bien anglais.Les dons récoltés grâce à cette collecte serviront à un nouveau projet: celui d’engager un nouvel acteur dans l’amélioration de l’éducation des enfants à Manyano et Soga.L’idée est d’offrir une meilleure qualité d’apprentissage aux plus jeunes, en engageant quelqu’un qui aidera les professeurs des enfants de 2 à 5 ans, en leur apprenant à enseigner, en les accompagnant.Cette personne, c’est Simon Madonono, qui a aider plusieurs écoles en Afrique du Sud et dont l’aide est largement reconnue. Il a également élargi sa mission en aidant les parents dans l’éducation de leurs enfants, à travers des méthodes efficace, mais surtout simple à mettre en place.Simon est prêt a aider notre école, mais cela nécessite des fonds, pour mettre en place des activités, lui assurer de quoi vivre durant les mois qu’il passera à aider l’école. Il est envisagé de l’engager dès le début du mois d’août, pour le nouveau trimestre, et aussi longtemps que les dons le permettent! (De Debby, en charge de trouver des fonds et des volontaires pour mettre en place de nouveaux projets)Dear MelissaThank you for offering to support the children from our community. Having worked with them during your volunteer stay with us, you know their conditions and background and understand our most urgent needs.The Nolali Education Centre is a registered Non-Profit Company situated in a remote, rural village in the Eastern Cape, Transkei region of South Africa. It was founded by Jock Mcconnachie in 2012 and offers services focused around supporting education to students at surrounding Xhosa schools in our village.Our core impact currently is teaching grade 1, 2 and 3 Xhosa students to read in English via our one-on-one reading programme implemented by international volunteers. We have also empowered two members of the community by successfully training them to implement the reading programme at our library at Soga Junior School. We offer these mothers a small monthly stipend for their work and rely on donations to make it possible.Since covid, we have extended our project to include training preschool teachers who care for children from 2 to 5 years old, creating the foundation of these children's education. We have been fortunate enough to connect with a Xhosa teacher trainer specialist, Simon Madonono, who together with the leadership and sponsorship of a trust organization, has trained kindergarten teachers, extending to include parents / guardian workshops which teach the role of education at home via simple yet effective methods with great results in the rural Kei Farm community. Simon has visited our project for a few days to meet the preschool teacher at Manyono Preschool which we currently support, and is keen to partner with us and develop the preschool.To replicate the teacher training at Manyano Preschool, we would need to offer Simon a small stipend for ongoing teacher workshops which ultimately benefit all the children under her care. We urgently need funds for the first few weeks of Simon's visit beginning early August.Thank you for caring.
