This space will be used for providing general project updates and information pertaining to the project as a whole that may not fit into the tasks noted above.
It only takes 5-15 minutes at a time.
The more of us do this exercise and the more frequently we do it, the more impact it will have.
It is also good to do it just before you start contributing to the project. It will help to keep your contribution focused on the vision and full of positive energy.
Depending on your spiritual tradition you might pray or meditate or just sit or lie in a relaxed state.
The important thing is that you focus on the project at its best - a vibrant, joyful place full of energy where people meet to grow and heal.
We need some volunteers willing to help us to write different proposals and letters of intence to organisations and institutions introducting them with our project and malaria problem, and furthermore asking them very kindly to help us and support us and our project.
In Yoshinkhel we have plenty of opportunities for individuals who would like to help the community not only over the computer, but also in the village itself as volunteers. How could we attract them? Or are you yourself interested?
Specifically we are looking for people to help with
1. developing the knitting program into a professional business
2. training the women in advanced knitting (or other professional skills)
3. designing/constructing the building
4. training the tutors of the school children
The Children Education Project is based on the idea of a tutoring model in which older school children mentor younger children, tell them stories, play with them, etc.. Through this both sides are taught the value of education.
Based on the objectives defined in the business plan, we are looking for a Nabuur who would write a curriculum/lesson plan for the training of the tutors to prepare them for their tasks. One of our neighbours, Simone, is willing to create a CDRom with the relevant content for the tutors: Can you help her to develop it?
We have identified potential donors and partners to support the various parts of this project. However, it is a lot of work to write to all kind of donor organizations – so let’s help Sabina in this task. Based on the draft letter you can find under resources we look for Nabuurs who would be willing to write to the organizations (by email) and follow up until a reply is received.
We think it would be easiest and most convenient to get funding
1. for the business development of the knitting project
