Achievers Academy is solely focused on providing quality education to refugee children who have had few privileges in life but whose academic abilities have been proven once given an opportunity to study.As refugees, normally awaiting relocation to another country, the children are not permitted to study in Malaysian public schools. However, the relocation process can take as long as 6 years or more. When children of intelligence are not allowed to attend school, they lose their capacity for intelligence, and their mind, occupied only by poverty, can become dull.The challenges for refugee and asylum seeker families can be greater in that they may have previous traumatic experiences in their home country and can face further social disruption and poverty upon arrival in Malaysia because of their legal status. Asylum seekers low levels or no financial support and are not entitled to work which results in many parents and caregivers struggle to feed and clothe their families.Achievers Academy believes that education should take into account the diverse cultural, linguistic and economic needs of its community to prevent themarginalization or exclusion of young people in education.Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/topachieversacademy/

Update - 4:00pm, 25 May (Thursday) Dear Friends, WE DID IT!I am so grateful for all of you who have chipped in to allow us to raise enough funds to repay the initial amount of HKD$150,000 that has been owed to the landlord. Last night, we also had a successful fundraiser at the Orange Peel where we raised a total of HKD$4,312. So grateful for all of you that have lent your support to FlowBooks. With this payment as a partial payment of the unpaid rent, the landlord is willing to consider a further repayment schedule and a new tenancy lease for FlowBooks so that we can enter our next phase - Phase Two - where we become a better and sustainable bookstore for all of you. In due time, I will be starting a new fundraising appeal for Phase Two, and provide you with details of the plan should you be keen to support me. Please continue to donate to this page, any excess funds raised here will go toward Phase Two.Thank you everyone.With much Gratitude,SurdhamUpdate - 10:27am, 23 May (Tuesday)Good news everyone! All donations from this time of 10:27am on Tuesday 23rd May onward will be matched ONE FOR ONE!  One of FlowBook's supporters has just called me to make this kind and generous gesture. He has chosen to remain anonymous but I am forever grateful. What this means is that we only need to raise about HKD$20,000 more (to fully cover credit card and SimplyGiving website fees). The rest of the matching funds will be transferred by bank transfer by the anonymous supporter. Any excess funds that are raised will be invested back into the rental and operations for FlowBooks for the immediate future.SurdhamUpdate - 7:30pm, 22 May (Monday) Dear Friends and Supporters, It has been a courageous fight to save FlowBooks, and 7 days of huge effort from everyone. I cannot express how appreciative I am of every one of you who has donated, shared and supported this cause in one way or another. It has given me incredible hope and inspiration to keep FlowBooks alive for our generation and beyond. We needed to raise a minimum of HKD$150,000 for the landlord, but are still short of HKD$35,000. However, I am hopeful that with our continued efforts, we will be able to reach the target. The landlord has very kindly extended the deadline till Midnight on Wednesday, the 24th of May.This is a very positive sign. I am very hopeful that we can reach this target and that I may continue to serve Hong Kong as a humble book keeper. I would also like to take this opportunity to share the story of an anonymous generous supporter, who learnt about my plight through Apple Daily on Friday, and appointed lawyers to handle discussions with the landlord's lawyers.Please continue to support and share this campaign for the remaining time so that we can reach our target. I am truly grateful for each and everyone of you for your support, and want to individually thank each of you in the future.Sincerely,Your bookstore keeper at FlowBooksSurdham22 May 2017*************************************************************************************************************************************************************We need your urgent help to keep FlowBooks open...FlowBooks is asking for urgent, compassionate donations to help save our 20-year old community secondhand bookstore from a forced closure next Monday!  Please note that the amount 'raised so far' that is posted on this page is the total of amount raised ONLINE as well as OFFLINE.

Please support RESOLVE, a capacity-building fellowship I will kick-start in Hong Kong, beginning July/August 2017.RESOLVE’s aim is to provide ethnic minority grassroots spokespeople with rights awareness, advocacy skills and leadership development through a year-long fellowship program. RESOLVE stands for Rights, Equality, Solidarity, Organization, Leadership, Voice and Empowerment - the pillars of the project! The goal of the program is to develop a visible and vocal force of ethnic minority grassroots leaders to combat racial discrimination and promote a more inclusive Hong Kong society. This will be the first platform that brings together local, migrant and refugee ethnic minorities. Key ObjectivesThe project goal is to develop a united, visible and vocal force of ethnic minority grassroots leaders and allies who can effectively advocate against racial discrimination and promote diversity to improve their situation and foster a more inclusive Hong Kong society. The objectives are:To increase skills attainment of 15 fellows committed to combat racial discrimination in rights awareness, advocacy skills and leadership mentoring to be effective and influential spokespeopleTo effectively involve and coordinate the fellows in the process of Hong Kong's review by the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.To develop an alumni network of the fellows. The longer-term vision is that RESOLVE can be a platform expanded to other causes in the future beyond racial discrimination, with the thematic focus of each fellowship recruitment cycle changing according to the most pressing social causes of the time.Pilot Project (4 months)In order to test the project, a small, condensed 4-month pilot project will take place with a first cohort of 15 participants, who will take part in a series of trainings, workshops and individual mentoring over the course of three months, and then will put into practice what they have learned on a small final project of their choosing in the final month. A call for nominations will be sent to community civil society partners who will identify grassroots leaders among their beneficiary base with demonstrable leadership potential and interest in working together to be catalysts of positive change for their communities. Some of the fellows may also include young, local people with a track record of concern for racial discrimination and inclusion issues. An academic partnership will be established to conduct a monitoring and evaluation of the pilot to take robust stock of the pilot experience.How Can You Help And How Funds Would Be UtilisedThe funds raised will go directly towards the 4 months pilot project which begins in July 2017 - These funds will support participants to attend by reducing their economic barriers to participation through a transport subsidy; develop basic infrastructure and material supplies to be able to deliver the training and workshops; and manage the program. Your donation will go a long way in helping a new kind of social purpose start-up in Hong Kong. For about HK$ 10,000.00, donors can sponsor an individual fellow, building up a next generation of leaders to promote a more equal, multicultural and inclusive Hong Kong.Please DONATE and help SHARE this project with friends. With your help, we can make this happen!

With tragedy striking many parts of the world today, the right to an education has been stripped away from many refugee and stateless children. You have the opportunity and power to give them a chance for a brighter future; a chance to live their dreams and contribute to society.IDEAS Academy is a learning centre for marginalised and vulnerable children based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Most of the students are refugees and stateless persons. It is one of a small number of schools in Malaysia which provides secondary school level education for refugee children. Due to the law, they do not have access to public schools.At IDEAS Academy, we believe in education for all, regardless of background, ethnicity or economic situation. A child should not be deprived an education simply because she is a refugee or stateless. We aim to give every child aged 12 to 18 years old in our care, an education which will open doors of opportunity for them. We believe that they can grow up to become responsible, confident and compassionate individuals who will help their families and communities.At the moment, our learning centre is facing hard times. We are running out of funds to keep our doors open. With 125 amazing students (and 60 more children on our waitlist), IDEAS Academy might actually be forced to close in August.We need at least RM 200,000 (or USD 50 000) to keep the lights on, pay rent and teachers' salaries, and provide food for the children until the end of December. Please help our learning centre survive this year by making a generous donation to our cause.Your donation would go a long way towards ensuring that these children will be able to have a safe environment for their education, and to be able to take their first steps towards fulfilling their ambitions of becoming doctors, teachers and productive members of society.Your donation will help build and empower them to realise their dreams of the future.Thank you.

Update on 29th June 2017 Using this platform, private donors also gave over RM20,000, allowing us to reach our initial fundraising target.We managed to bring all the children who had applied into our programme in June, with provision for at least 12 calendar months. In total, the Precious Children Programme now helps 50 children. We also built a one-room dwelling to house a single mother and her 4 children, dug a tube well in a village with no clean water supply, supplied emergency rations for a newly discovered family living on the edge, and even bought a bicycle for a child who had dropped out of school when her previous bicycle broke beyond repair. For photos, please to the Gallery section of this page.We are grateful.Best Wishes,Dolly----- I having been working in some of the villages in Cambodia since 2015. No one can avoid seeing the poverty cutting into lives, particularly childhood lives, there.  Unable to walk away and do nothing, in 2016, I started "Precious Children" work as a means of rescue: from starvation, from the threat of forced labour, from being "sold ", from other ways in which children become commodities and a means to an end.In this work, we support families with USD20 - 25 a month worth of support in kind : basic foodstuff, school fees, clothes, nutritional supplements, simple medicines, just to help what is left of families in the villages to keep and raise their children within the community, and keep them in school.It started with 10 Precious Kids (PKs, in primary school) with USD20 per month per child. Precious Youths (PYs) was started in March 2017 for support of children in secondary school who have a slightly different needs profile.At point of writing, we cover 26 Kids and 8 Youths under our growing programme. Recently, we received applications for over 20 children from 6 villages and are working hard to raise sponsors for each child.The local church is our administrative platform, but we are a compassionate work that is available to all children regardless of faith, ethnic or any other similar affiliations.  Referrals come to us from village and commune chiefs, teachers.This appeal is an ongoing one for funds to help us embrace as many children as come to us who meet our single criterion - grinding poverty.

A few weeks ago, Mojtaba Shakibafar, an Iranian refugee who lives temporarily in Malaysia (while his UNHCR - UN Refugee Agency- case was under review) was admitted to hospital for severe dengue fever. After being in ICU for a few days, unfortunately he passed away on the 13th of June 2017 due to severe internal bleeding and organ failure. As he was the only person responsible for financial support of his family, he left them in a critical condition without any source of income or the permission to work (because they are foreigners and without working visas) and also with a considerable hospital bill of more than RM18,000 which should be paid before releasing the deceased body from the hospital. His wife and his 11-year old son are not only shocked because of their sudden loss, but also afraid of the future because they should survive at least one more year in Malaysia waiting for the result of their refugee case. Without any family member to financially help them and absolutely no support from Malaysian government, there is no chance that they could survive here. The family has already been borrowing money from their immediate circle of friends for the hospital bills, and are indebted to their friends who have already over-extended themselves.  This fundraising is to appeal to any kind souls who would be able to help by supporting them for one year as they await for their appeal case with the UNHCR It is estimated that they will need RM2,000 a month = RM24,000 a year for their living expenses. The breakdown of this RM2,000 a month is as follows:Rental RM900Utilities RM100School Fees RM150 Food RM600Transportation RM150Medicine (the son has asthma and the mother has migraine) RM100We look forward to receive help from those generous and kind people who care about others and thank them for their support.   Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information:Call/Text/Whatsapp: +60182984094Alireza“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” ― John Bunyan Background Story (by SimplyGiving): Iran is a dangerous place to be different. People can be persecuted for political views, their race, gender sexuality and religion.  Ethnic minorities in particular are discriminated so they don't have the same legal rights as the rest of the population, but also on a day-to-day basis in terms of access to employment or education. Mojtaba Shakibafar had left Iran with his family in the hopes of giving them a brighter future.

Hello, my name is Rachel Siew Suet Li. My passion is to empower others especially those challenged individuals. My message is to help those who can’t help themselves! I would love to live in an inclusive community. I have a rare degenerative genetic condition known as MPS IVA aka Morquio Syndrome. I am 27 years old and have been living with this condition since birth. Morquio syndrome is a rare genetic disorder in which the body is unable to break down sugar chains that help build bone, cartilage, cornea, skin and connective tissue.Because of my condition, I suffer from weakening bones and fatigue. I get short of breath easily, and walking will cause discomfort to my knees and ankles. I am unable to climb stairs or pavements. My bones at my joints are protruding and sharp, and I have an enlarged stomach which affects my other organs.However, in spite of my condition, I have obtained a degree in law from the UK and am now the Community Advocate of the Make It Right Movement (http://www.makeitrightmovement.com/) , a CSR initiative company powered by Brickfields Asia College (BAC), my alma mater.In February 2016, I discovered that Enzyme Replacement Therapy (ERT) treatment through the drug Vimizim, greatly improves my quality of life. For 20 over years, I have felt my body slowly deteriorate, but with the ERT treatment, I feel my energy returning. I am less short of breath, able to climb a few steps. My joints are now coated by stronger tendon and muscles and my stomach is not as enlarged. My biggest joy is that I am able to get out of my wheelchair and walk independently without support.With ERT treatment, I am now given the gift of HOPE, I treasure every path I walk on and every step I take. ERT treatment has provided me with the needed stamina and I will continue to strengthen my muscles by staying active.Unfortunately, treatment costs a staggering RM1.6 million per year and I need to raise funds for this as my appeals to the Health Ministry for funding have been rejected. The treatment, once started, cannot be stopped as it will result in adverse effects.I sincerely hope you can help me with this treatment cost by contributing. You can learn more about me through the media articles below, or by following me on my Facebook Page here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/rstf16/about/ Thank you so much for your support and generosity! Please also help to share this page with your friends and family.

Update in June 2017Dear Friends,Although this appeal has ended, I invite you to visit my latest fundraising page to raise funds for children in need in Cambodia. The link to that page is here: www.simplygiving.com/appeal/preciousUpdate on May 3rd 2017Dear Friends, Thank you for your generous support of this project! The toilets have been completed and are functioning well. I had personally made a visit to the village last week to check on the project and attach on this page - the photos from the visit. Together with the toilets, we have also managed to raise funds to fill up a piece of land next to the school, which was often prone to flooding. These minor improvements to the village may not have cost alot to us, but they have added incredible value to the village and its community members.During my recent trip, I have come across more projects and people that need help. I shall be posting more of these projects up soon.Thank you so much for you support,DollyDear Friends, I received an appeal from the SLENG Village Government Primary School in Kampong Thom Province, Cambodia, to build them two new toilets. There are just over 100 children in this school. Presently they only have one functioning toilet as the other one is clogged up. Their existing toilet structure is also in a bad state, with visible cracks.We hope to raise the funds of US$1,500 as soon as possible so that we can proceed to build the new toilets right away. Having safe, hygienic and adequate toilet facilities has far-reaching benefits for these children. It will prevent the spread of diseases, encourage good toilet habits, and generally allow the children to stay in school longer and stay healthy.Thank you for your generosity.

My dearest buddies, Back then when I was still 18-year-old, I looked forward to my birthday each year. Ever since I passed 25-year-old, I wished my clock could tick slower (or stop ticking...haha). But I know this wish would never come true, LOL. Whilst I was still in the State (the days when I was still in NYC/NJ) , I started celebrating each of my birthday with Christ by spending day/days for silent retreat. To me, there is no other better way to celebrate my date of birth than to spend it with my creator (ONLY HIM)! So, needless to say, I am doing the same thing this year again. Yeah! Looking forward to it....Originally, I was planning to join the 8-days silent retreat workshop at Xavier House. However, I received a call from them and I am on their wait list =( Therefore, I am still unsure where I will end up being this year...may be @ HK retreat house or China...depends. Thank you very much for always celebrating my birthday with me, or even bringing me out for nice meals or buying me thoughtful gifts. in the past \ (^_^ ) / This year, I am asking for donations instead of gifts and bday meals. Therefore, if you don't mind, please support me on my annual bday retreat.  Of course, we shall still do our normal bday gathering, but split bills and without gifts!  Heehee =) None the less, NO PRESSURE though! Just feel free to do whatever you feel like doing. Your support and prayers have always been precious to me; and your contribution is highly appreciated in advanced. Lots of love, Kathy

I came from Mainland China to Hong Kong almost one year ago in order to wait for my flight to go back to my country (Venezuela) to renew my passport and see my families, as some of you may know, my country is in a delicate economic situation. I was supposed to be helped by my former partner to get my ticket back but things changed when I found out I was PREGNANT . Long story short, my partner left me after noticing and didn't take care of me and my situation, so I had no other choice but to remain in Hong Kong to give birth (as I didn't have money for my ticket). It's been a long way since then and as all the big cities, Hong Kong is quite expensive. I received help by friends from China and Hong Kong until I gave birth, and now I'm living in a shelter provided by the charity. Unfortunately I am unable to work at the moment as I overstayed my Visa and need to care for my 2 month old baby.My baby Laurent was born on 3rd of March.. A totally healthy chap and I want to keep it that way. I hope to be able to raise some money here to enable me to purchase the following:- Baby supplies for Laurent (such as milk formula which is not available in Venezuela due to the economic situation, baby bottles, creams, nappies etc)- Musical Equipment and Gear (In desperation, I had sold my guitar and performance clothing, but need to buy new ones to continue my career.)After spending a few months in Venezuela, I plan to return to Asia to work for my baby, my charity foundation is not able to provide anything else but food and accommodation. I'm doing all I can for him and as a single mother it's hard most of the times. We will be sent back to Venezuela on 15th May. We seek your compassion and generosity to help me get through this rough patch of life.  Any amount will be useful, No amount will be too small.We hope to receive help from those lovely hearts out there If you want to know more don't hesitate in contacting me by: Whatsapp: +85251662517Facebook: www.facebook.com/andre8kWechat ID: andresynth

Make a contribution to bring creativity, innovation, and culture to Southeast Asia's children! The ASEAN Puppet Exchange project (APEX) was launched in 2014 to promote peace and harmony in the region, at the same time address the needs of children, youth and the vulnerable. It does so by uniting puppeteers from all 10 countries of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), encouraging them to learn and teach the arts and crafts to each other and the communities of Southeast Asia. Through this process, the participants enhance their understanding, appreciation and respect for each other and the collective ASEAN identity.However, this program is not cheap to sustain as it requires covering the flights, logistics and accommodation for the participants who already struggle to make ends meet in their own countries. As the previous funding ended in 2016, it is now critical for us to raise funds from other sources, so that we can continue the program this year - 2017.For this year's gathering in Hanoi, October 2017, APEX aims to raise least $5,000 by September. Artists from all ASEAN states will visit a school for disabled children to teach about speaking up for one's self. They will also continue their dialogue of 2016, to make plans for 2018's outreach programmes in their own countries. Even if you are personally not able to contribute, we would greatly appreciate if you could share this appeal page or be a fundraiser with your friends, family or anyone else you think may be interested to support. THANK YOU SO MUCH!Managing the funds of the ASEAN's puppet exchange artists is Artsolute, from Singapore, a non-profit organisation established to find solutions for community through art. More on Artsolute may be found on www.artsolute.asia, while the official page for APEX is www.aseanpuppetexchange.org.‘The opportunity to share with other theater and puppetry artists is such a desperately needed experience in order to keep these artistic forms happening in exciting ways. Preserving tradition is really important but if tradition has nothing to do with contemporary culture, it becomes meaningless. This is a way for tradition to become meaningful for the people involved in keeping the puppetry arts alive (particularly the younger generations.) I don’t think that the same kind of artistic practice can happen if the spaces weren’t created for this to happen’- Jennifer Goodlander, Director of Southeast Asian and ASEAN Studies, Indiana University

Backyard Tour is a social enterprise that aims to empower rural communities in Sarawak; Kuching for now, through sustainable tourism. We see that there are lots of tourism potential in the villages around Kuching that are hidden from travel maps and the people there are living on the brink of poverty with issues such as youth unemployment, idleness, alcoholism, increased rural to urban migration. Thus, we want to combine the act of solving these social problems as well as bringing more hidden beauties around Sarawak to the public eye through the tours conducted. The tours will include short excursions, overnight stays, education camps. leadership camps, various events that will enable travelers to learn about the native culture, building structure, biodiversity and unique skills from the community members. We hope to be able to bring a wave of change in the tourism industry that focuses too much on corporate profit and bring more equity to the local communities through our unique business model that gives ownership to the community members, such as having local guides and logistics provided by the locals. Also we want to add value to the travelers' stay here in Kuching.

BEAT’ABOX GROUP is a social enterprise, founded, initiated and powered by young people, using music as a vehicle to bring positive solutions to societal needs, to heighten joyful vibrancy of life in Singapore, and to develop leadership and entrepreneurial ability, and active citizenry, especially among young people.   BEAT’ABOX GROUP activities are divisible into these main arenas: Education, Arts and Community.   EDUCATION: Our vision is for every household, corporate entity and educational institution in Singapore to own a cajon, and to be equipped with proper foundational skills in playing a cajon. With this head-start in Singapore, we aim to become a world-leader in cajon training. We are, at the moment, the only organization in this part of the world that offers a structured programme for learning to master the cajon, a world percussive instrument originating from Peru, dating back to the 17th century.   Through our education arm, we do not aim to just create music appreciation or mastery of the cajon, but we see this simple populist instrument as a means to achieve positive individual and organizational goals, such as self-confidence, team-building and volunteerism.ARTS: BEAT’ABOX brings a vibrant and creative approach towards the enjoyment and sharing of music in the local arts performance scene through our unique skills in the cajon. We also promote young and upcoming local artistes through collaboration in events, and provide them a platform for greater visibility.   BEAT’ABOX also aims to influence the performance scene in Singapore by injecting made-in-Singapore world-class BEAT’ABOX cajons into the local arts performance scene.   COMMUNITY: BEAT’ABOX GROUP formed The Cajon Society, our community outreach arm, with a mission to unite citizens of all ages, from various walks of life, through the uplifting skill of music-making and creative drumming on the cajon.

The land where the project is taking place belongs to one of the local families, and they have agreed to open the space for the use of the community. One of the two houses will be used by the family and the second house is planned to be used for home stays.Project Current StatusThe main structures of the building have been completed using more than 800 tyres, thousands of bottles, cans, recycled banners, cardboard, recycled timber, and other discarded materials. The solar panels are installed and working. The rainwater harvesting system is fully operational and the tanks are full of water. The sewage treatment system has been completed.The food production and water recycling system is fully installed and ready to be used.Currently the project has come to a hold due to lack of financial resources.

About CaptionCube For schools, training providers and agencies with public education videos, CaptionCube is the only provider that specialises in captioning of lecture/seminar/online videos to increase communication accessibility and support an inclusive learning environment. Unlike traditional captioning providers, CaptionCube is a social enterprise that leverages on technology and crowd-sourced transcription process to provide quality, timely captions at low prices.  How We Got Started CaptionCube was founded in response to a lack of effective and affordable modes of communication for deaf and hard-of-hearing community in a lecture/seminar setting. Understanding the fragmented landscape of the deaf learners in Singapore, we focused on building a universal solution that: will not only benefit deaf learners but also hearing students supports progression of education institutes in building a more engaging and inclusive environmentCaptionCube is registered as a private limited company as we believe that in order to build a sustainable source of communication support to students with special needs, the service provider needs to be backed by a profitable business model that is able to quickly attract and groom manpower, and provide adequate rewards for them to contribute their service and uphold quality standards. Due to the small market size of persons with special needs, the company also needs to be able to derive income from a wider market and provide other related services in the area of speech/text data and conversion. For the focus on our social mission, CaptionCube is also recognised as a social enterprise by raiSE Singapore. Social MissionCaptionCube aims to increase the public's awareness of the different needs in society, encourage the co-building of an inclusive society and highlight the importance and benefits of captions in providing communication accessibility. Through captions, we facilitate transmission of education and enhance the learning experience of special needs students (particularly deaf/hard of hearing students) in schools as well as adult learners with hearing loss in their lifelong learning journey. This leads to increased advancement rates of special needs students to attain higher education, increased retention rates and performance level of these students in schools, and better job opportunities and enhanced employability for persons with special needs as well as the mature population. Our web-based crowd-sourced transcription platform aims to provide meaningful, freelance transcribing job opportunities for persons who require flexible working hours due to family or health conditions e.g. physical disabilities.

Born out of a concern for the damage we’ve done to our one and only Earth, Cleanbodia was started as a way to bring eco-friendly ideas and solutions to Cambodia. We realize the amazing potential that Cambodians have to be a force of change for the environment not only in Southeast Asia but across the globe. We aim to help foster that change in a creative, dynamic, and sustainable way.Our bags are made with cassava, a root vegetable grown throughout Southeast Asia. The cassava reduces plastic usage and allows our bags to biodegrade in under five years, whether it is in water, soil, or even buried in garbage. But just because they biodegrade doesn't mean they are weaker. Filled with hot soup or produce from the market, our biodegradable bags are as strong as traditional plastic bags.

World Vision Malaysia

On 1 May 2015, a group of us embarked on The Road Less Traveled. As World Vision Staff, we led a group of child sponsors to Mongolia. One of the districts we visited was Baganuur, a very new Area Development Programme funded by World Vision Malaysia. As this is only the first year of implementation, the needs are great. We were brought to a ger kindergarten and the principal we interviewed told us that it is her wish for the children to have access to proper toilet and sanitation facilities. At present, children have to walk out of the ger to use the pit latrine (basically this is just a hole in the ground). There have been cases of children falling into the pit. During winter, when temperature can drop to -40°C, it is just extremely cold for the children to go out and ease themselves. This is reflective of the general situation amongst the kindergartens and schools in Baganuur. As a team, we are committing to raise RM150,000 that will provide clean water, proper sanitation and promote good hygiene practices. The funds will directly benefit more than 2,600 children and families in 5 kindergartens and 4 secondary schools through the following initiatives:- Installation of at least 3 water storage tanksConstruction of 16 bio toilet units (with bio decomposers) and 1 public bath house / toiletDistribution of handouts on hygiene and sanitation practicesBuilding 16 washing facilitiesSanitation and hygiene campaign training sessions On behalf of the children of Baganuur, I thank you for your generous support.

We at the Jane Goodall Institute (HK) would like to invite YOU to support our Chimp Guardian Program. You have the opportunity to become an official Chimp Guardian at our sanctuary in Tchimpounga. With your contribution, the chimpanzees will be provided the necessary care and rehabilitation in our sanctuaries. As one for our Chimp Guardians ($500HKD/Month) you will receive:A Chimp Guardian CertificateRegular updates from Tchimpounga on your chosen chimpanzeeA 1-year JGI membership which includes invitations to all our exclusive activities and eventsYour donation every month goes towards the upkeep and care of the chimpanzee you are the guardian of. Please select the number of months your would like to support your chimpanzee.Below you will find a short description on each member of our Chimp Guardian Program. You can find an photograph of each chimpanzee in our gallery.AmazonAmazon loves to peer into the pockets of our caretaker's pants and shirts and clean their clothes of any small leaves or dirt smudges. Amazon does not like to see dirty clothes! It is evident that she feels more at ease with her human caregivers, and while this may seem endearing, this is not normal or healthy behaviour and caregivers must try to correct it.AnzacAnzac is very independent and likes to explore alone, although she is always more comfortable when caretakers and the other chimpanzees are nearby. Another chimpanzee, Alex, is one of Anzac’s best friends. They are almost inseparable and spend almost all of their time together.FaleroWhile Falero should be integrated into a group of chimpanzees his own age, there are few near him in age in the sanctuary, and around the time of his arrival, Lounama, a chimpanzee who had been transferred to the new island sanctuary sites, suddenly had to be transferred back to the main sanctuary. Lounama has a heart condition that must be monitored more closely than possible on the islands. JeJeJeje is a very charismatic chimpanzee and has many friends in his group. He always wants to play and have fun with them. Jeje is one of the most beloved chimpanzees at Tchimpounga.KaukaKauka has problems integrating with other chimpanzees, He continually fails to be accepted by other individuals. There is something in the personality of Kauka that prevents him from adapting to social life with his new groupmates. KefanKefan is one of the most charismatic chimpanzees living at Tchimpounga. He is a strong male with a dominant personality, but in spite of his great strength, Kefan has demonstrated a great respect for the JGI caretakers who work with him and his group. Caregiver Willy in particular is a great friend of Kefan’s. Their friendship began many years ago, when Kefan was still an infant.KudiaKudia spends most of her time bonding with Hope, Wounda’s son. Kudia is one of the most playful chimpanzees on Tchibebe Island, she is considered the leader of her group. LembaLemba likes to climb to the highest platform in her enclosure and watch as their food is made each day. When it’s ready she can call out, alerting all of the other chimpanzees who can hear her in enclosures nearby that their food is on the way. LousingoLousingo had been the victim of poachers who killed his mother and then sold him as a pet to a person who dressed him like a human baby. Fortunately, Lousingo has recovered from the trauma of his early life and is enjoying life on the island of Tchibebé, along with other chimpanzees with similar pasts.LucLuc is a true explorer. He manages to convince his group every morning to take a long walk on the forest throughout the island. Now that the facilities are more complete, the caregivers rarely have physical contact with the chimpanzees unless there is a situation that requires it such as veterinary care or feeding. For this reason, Luc’s group hikes through the forest are a mystery to the staff.MambouAfter the last several chimpanzees have been transferred to Ngombe and Tchibebe Islands, Mambou has become the largest chimpanzee in his group. It’s increbile to think that tiny Mambou, who arrived at Tchimpounga almost dead just a few years ago, now is a strong and energetic chimp.MbeboMany species of animals are made up of individuals who each have their own special abilities. This is certainly true of chimpanzees, where, among a group, one can see many chimpanzees with different personalities and specific skills. This is the case with Mbebo, who stands out among his group for his ability to understand and use tools. It’s very common to see him using stones to open the hard shell of palm nuts.MoboulouMoboulou is the self-appointed caretaker of the group, he is one of the first to notice the presence of wild chimpanzees close to the enclosure. Whenever the screams of the wild chimpanzees echo through the enclosure, Moboulou will scan the horizon and patrol the enclosure's fence to look out for any curious wild chimpanzees.Petit PrincePetit Prince spends his time eating and resting. The caregivers at Tchimpounga pay great attention to the diet of the chimpanzees. After ensuring he has enough fruit to fill his belly, Petit Prince begins to devour leaves quickly. It seems that he likes these; that they are a delicacy for him. When the other chimpanzees have finished with their other food, problems begin. Petit Prince still has many green leaves and his companions wander around trying to take some. Petit Prince is attentive and prevents them from taking any of his stash, except perhaps for those to whom he may owe a favor, but no more. TimiTimi enjoys his quiet life with his group at the Tchimpounga sanctuary. Lately he is less active and spends a lot of time in the shadow of the platforms in their enclosure to escape the heat. During the last few weeks it has been very hot in the Republic of Congo. Timi prefers to walk around and be more active at dusk when the temperature is more pleasant.WoundaWounda is the most famous chimpanzee of the Tchimpounga sanctuary. The video of her embrace of the Dr. Jane Goodall when she was released on the Jane Goodall Institute’s new sanctuary sites on Tchindzoulou Island circled the world. Shortly after, Dr. Goodall would recognize that this was one of the most fascinating moments of her life. We all wondered why Wounda decided to give that almost magical embrace to Dr. Jane Goodall if she hardly knew her. This was an incredibly emotional experience for the entire team there.YokoYoko is a special chimpanzee who is very shy and introverted. He had to live for some time on his own because of these personality characteristics. He just couldn’t handle being with a group of other chimpanzees. He was recently moved to Tchindzoulou where he was being watched closely to see if he could handle this new situation. He settled in well, however, he is going to experience another big change as soon as the facilities on the island are complete and more and more chimpanzees are transferred there.

Provide Safe and Decent Homes for the Elderly Habitat for Humanity Hong Kong helps address substandard living conditions in the community.   Issue After 23-year of serving the community and providing shelter for the elderly, the elderly home is seeking help for our urgent repair and renovation.      About SAGE Madam Ho Sin Hang Home for the Elderly The elderly home was started as a care-and-attention home in April 1987, supported by the S.H. Ho Foundation Limited. The Social Welfare Department (SWD) approved a Lotteries Fund to top up the capital cost in May 1991 and renamed it as SAGE Madam Ho Sin Hang Home for the Elderly. The construction work of the elderly home was completed in May 1994 and commenced admission of residents in October 1994. Due to the old age and lack of maintenance, the plaster on the roof is falling apart and the wall paint is wearing away. The worsening condition poses potential risk to the elderly's health, especially the respiratory system.  How does the project address the issue? Project Home Works provides basic home repairs and renovation for the needy in society to obtain a safe and decent home. The project aims to: -         Improve the living conditions of the elderly home and create a safe and decent living environment. -         Create a sense of dignity in the lives of elderly during their later stages of life -         Build an inclusive society among the elderly, volunteers and donors -         Raise awareness of the public regarding the issue of substandard living conditions   How can you support this project?LIKE: Access Habitat for Humanity Hong Kong's Facebook Page.

Please donate or sponsor. We need funding for the food, medical care, and upkeep of these deserving animals.  CARA aims that these surviving dogs will have a chance to live normal lives. The cost of running the sanctuary is PhP 230,000 (4600usd) a month or 2.07M (41400usd) until December 2017. A major portion of this budget is for food. The dogs consume 3 large sacks of dog food daily. (We mix this with rice and vegetables.) We appeal to your kind heart to donate any amount (minimum 200php -type "200" in the amount field) to the cause or better if you will sponsor a dog for a month.

The 266 rescued Laguna pit bulls presented overwhelming challenges for the rescuers. Many of the animals were found in very poor health. They were cruelly chained to posts buried in filthy mud with nothing more than cut-out steel drums for shelter. They were terribly malnourished, many with wounds inflicted during dog-fighting and were suffering from exposure to the elements. Despite medical care, a lot of dogs perished or had to be put to sleep to end their sufferings, a result of the poor living conditions and lack of medical care in the hands of the syndicate. CARA Welfare Philippines (www.caraphil.org) has been taking care of the pit bulls since their rescue. With some borrowed funds and volunteers who put in a lot of hard work, CARA was able to relocate the surviving animals to a sanctuary just a few hours’ drive from Manila. Today, 92 remain and we continue to care for them daily to keep them healthy CARA also needs to nurture the sick ones back to health. After their rehabilitation, we aim to find suitable individuals or families to adopt them. So far, thirty six of the dogs have been adopted and are now living much happier lives.The Laguna pit bulls, or LPBs, need help. All the volunteers have taken time off from their regular jobs to care for the animals. The LPBs are innocent victims of human cruelty–our priority is to ensure the survival of the dogs.

I am a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) student in Quest International University Perak, Malaysia. I have faced some problems regarding my tuition and living fees, my father is a plumber who earns around RM2600++ per month and it seems to be hardly enough but i realized some realistic issues now. I will complete my course in five years for MBBS and might wait for a year for the horsemanship. My father is 54 years old now and six years later will be sixty. I am the eldest child and I can deeply feel the burdens on me. Tuition fee and basic fee for MBBS programme around RM320,000 are expensive. I am lucky to have scholarship of RM150,000 but I know the remaining value is still a burden to my family. I hope my father, as the only financial support of the family can get retirement at a suitable age and do not need to worry about the money. I hope any organization or individual can lend me the hand. Sincerity from Tiffany Ng.

Update - 4:00pm, 25 May (Thursday) Dear Friends, WE DID IT!I am so grateful for all of you who have chipped in to allow us to raise enough funds to repay the initial amount of HKD$150,000 that has been owed to the landlord. Last night, we also had a successful fundraiser at the Orange Peel where we raised a total of HKD$4,312. So grateful for all of you that have lent your support to FlowBooks. With this payment as a partial payment of the unpaid rent, the landlord is willing to consider a further repayment schedule and a new tenancy lease for FlowBooks so that we can enter our next phase - Phase Two - where we become a better and sustainable bookstore for all of you. In due time, I will be starting a new fundraising appeal for Phase Two, and provide you with details of the plan should you be keen to support me. Please continue to donate to this page, any excess funds raised here will go toward Phase Two.Thank you everyone.With much Gratitude,SurdhamUpdate - 10:27am, 23 May (Tuesday)Good news everyone! All donations from this time of 10:27am on Tuesday 23rd May onward will be matched ONE FOR ONE!  One of FlowBook's supporters has just called me to make this kind and generous gesture. He has chosen to remain anonymous but I am forever grateful. What this means is that we only need to raise about HKD$20,000 more (to fully cover credit card and SimplyGiving website fees). The rest of the matching funds will be transferred by bank transfer by the anonymous supporter. Any excess funds that are raised will be invested back into the rental and operations for FlowBooks for the immediate future.SurdhamUpdate - 7:30pm, 22 May (Monday) Dear Friends and Supporters, It has been a courageous fight to save FlowBooks, and 7 days of huge effort from everyone. I cannot express how appreciative I am of every one of you who has donated, shared and supported this cause in one way or another. It has given me incredible hope and inspiration to keep FlowBooks alive for our generation and beyond. We needed to raise a minimum of HKD$150,000 for the landlord, but are still short of HKD$35,000. However, I am hopeful that with our continued efforts, we will be able to reach the target. The landlord has very kindly extended the deadline till Midnight on Wednesday, the 24th of May.This is a very positive sign. I am very hopeful that we can reach this target and that I may continue to serve Hong Kong as a humble book keeper. I would also like to take this opportunity to share the story of an anonymous generous supporter, who learnt about my plight through Apple Daily on Friday, and appointed lawyers to handle discussions with the landlord's lawyers.Please continue to support and share this campaign for the remaining time so that we can reach our target. I am truly grateful for each and everyone of you for your support, and want to individually thank each of you in the future.Sincerely,Your bookstore keeper at FlowBooksSurdham22 May 2017*************************************************************************************************************************************************************We need your urgent help to keep FlowBooks open...FlowBooks is asking for urgent, compassionate donations to help save our 20-year old community secondhand bookstore from a forced closure next Monday!  Please note that the amount 'raised so far' that is posted on this page is the total of amount raised ONLINE as well as OFFLINE.

Hello, my name is Rachel Siew Suet Li. My passion is to empower others especially those challenged individuals. My message is to help those who can’t help themselves! I would love to live in an inclusive community. I have a rare degenerative genetic condition known as MPS IVA aka Morquio Syndrome. I am 27 years old and have been living with this condition since birth. Morquio syndrome is a rare genetic disorder in which the body is unable to break down sugar chains that help build bone, cartilage, cornea, skin and connective tissue.Because of my condition, I suffer from weakening bones and fatigue. I get short of breath easily, and walking will cause discomfort to my knees and ankles. I am unable to climb stairs or pavements. My bones at my joints are protruding and sharp, and I have an enlarged stomach which affects my other organs.However, in spite of my condition, I have obtained a degree in law from the UK and am now the Community Advocate of the Make It Right Movement (http://www.makeitrightmovement.com/) , a CSR initiative company powered by Brickfields Asia College (BAC), my alma mater.In February 2016, I discovered that Enzyme Replacement Therapy (ERT) treatment through the drug Vimizim, greatly improves my quality of life. For 20 over years, I have felt my body slowly deteriorate, but with the ERT treatment, I feel my energy returning. I am less short of breath, able to climb a few steps. My joints are now coated by stronger tendon and muscles and my stomach is not as enlarged. My biggest joy is that I am able to get out of my wheelchair and walk independently without support.With ERT treatment, I am now given the gift of HOPE, I treasure every path I walk on and every step I take. ERT treatment has provided me with the needed stamina and I will continue to strengthen my muscles by staying active.Unfortunately, treatment costs a staggering RM1.6 million per year and I need to raise funds for this as my appeals to the Health Ministry for funding have been rejected. The treatment, once started, cannot be stopped as it will result in adverse effects.I sincerely hope you can help me with this treatment cost by contributing. You can learn more about me through the media articles below, or by following me on my Facebook Page here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/rstf16/about/ Thank you so much for your support and generosity! Please also help to share this page with your friends and family.

Despite coming from an impoverished background, 19 year old Sadam has overcome many challenges in his life, and is currently in his second semester at Admal Aviation College, in Sepang, with a focus on Aircraft Engineering and Avionics. Sadam tried to apply for a loan from the Skills Development Fund Corporation (PTPK) in his first semester, but unfortunately his application could not be completed because he did not have a guarantor. Rather than be discouraged, Sadam eventually succeeded in securing a guarantor, with the help of the college. While he was able to secure a student loan of RM80,000, he still needs an addition RM8,000 before December 2018 to continue being enrolled in his program. In addition, Sadam also needs Rm200 per month for rent.Despite coming from a poor background, Sadam still takes the time to give back to his local community. In collaboration with the Association of Hope and YCK, Sadam took a group of YCK kids on a trip to visit KLIA recently. YCK would like to raise RM10,400 in order to help Sadam cover his tertiary education expenses.YCK seeks to protect the rights of all at-risk children and youth, provide them with safe havens, and expose them to as many positive and holistic opportunities as possible to enable them to reach their full potential. We help the children and families we serve by raising funds through Simply Giving. 100% of your donation will go directly to the recipient.

This is a story of my little warrior Carl Adrian. He is 4 years old and his been fighting his battle since birth called as Congenital Heart Disease. As we all know there are a lot of different classifications of heart diseases. My sons condition is known as Tetralogyof Fallot with Pulmonary Valve Atresia. Tetralogy of Fallot is is a rare condition caused by a combination of four heart defects that are present at birth. As per Mayo's clinic definition "These defects, which affect the structure of the heart, cause oxygen-poor blood to flow out of the heart and to the rest of the body. Infants and children with tetralogy of Fallot usually have blue-tinged skin because their blood doesn't carry enough oxygen."Over the years he has been having tet spells.

I am making this personal campaign to ask for support in helping my 3 children to be together in one place.I am currently in the middle of my marriage annulment with my ex whom I have been separated with for 7 years. For those who doesn't know what annulment is, it is invalidation, voiding and nullifying someone's marriage with certain backgrounds such as psychological incapacity, lack of parental consent, documents falsification, and others that is under our Philippine Family Code.I have been struggling to pay my annulment case and school fees, rental and feeding my youngest. My fiance is currently helping me with some of our expenses specially with our baby's, but my annulment case is what's making our financial status worse.He is now in Romania with her daughter (also no mother), still in search of full time employment after his previous work ended in 2015, and I am in Laos where I work and acting as a mother and a father to my 2 children.My marriage annulment costs 4,500USD and I am now in debt for paying its installment. I am personally asking for everyone's kind support to raise 5,000USD to help me with my legal fees and so to also start processing our necessary immigration papers.We are planning to get married after the annulment of my first marriage and all of us to go to Romania so that the 3 children will be together, as they haven't met their oldest sister yet and be one family in one place.

Hello my dear donors,I have a lovely friend of mine, whose name I would like to keep annonymous. She is just 16 years old but suffering from depression, social anxiety and isolation in school.The situation is quite severe as it started a long time ago. Since primary school, she was constantly bullied, being called skinny, weird and ugly. No doubt she is a little peculiar, as in her viewpoints and personal style, but she is indeed very good and special. She owns a variety of talents, which I think many people are jealous of, and she is extremely positive. No matter how bad a situation is, she always looks at the bright side and finds solutions to solve it.She is very intelligent! She isn't a mugger, nor a memoriser, but she somehow has the wisdom and ability to do everthing quite perfectly! Be it arts, music, academics, speech, anything you can think of!Damn, but there're always people around who keep putting or letting her down, telling her how impossible everything is. Personally, I feel that they're either just stubborn or trying to make her give up. Before she can even elaborate or explain, they cut her off! Then, they start calling her a cry baby or a virus and other sorts of awful names. I know she always tries to hold in her tears, but some words can be sharper than swords, even if she dosen't cries on the spot, she holds in until before bedtime. As she floats into dreamland, tears start to roll down her cheeks onto her pillow. Those times when she has nightmares, she never awakes, for when she wakes up, another horrible dream awaits.This lead her into insomnia. She soon became a nightowl, working, eating and studying at wrong hours. Her parents tried to help, sadly, they ran out of solutions. The teachers, year heads and principals tried to meet her up with counsellors, psychologists, and even psychiatrists. However, these cause her a huge load of embarrasement and humiliation. Whenever her schoolmates ask her what's wrong, she just can't bring herself to answer them.It also resulted in social isolation, anxiety and depression. She became unusually quiet, not longer bubbly and chatty, she even stopped laughing at my lame jokes, haha. Now, laugh! Just kidding. She spends less time outdoors, or even out of her room. She became frail and fell sick easily. Her medical bills skyrocketed.While most people her age go out, visit malls and museums, ride roller coasters, find boyfriends, etc. She spends most of her time locking herself up in her own room. She rarely gets any invitation out for movies or karaoke, not even after the termly exam periods. I know, deep inside she is sad about that, afterall, they're her classmates whom she meets nearly everyday. Occasionally, she tries to organise her own outings, but those outings either "kena rejected" or they "go fly her kite".As her best friend, I am genuinely worried for her. Her major exams are around the corner, and it determines her tertiary education and possibly her job! Her parents have spent a lot of $$$ on medical, and a lot of their time being chased by teachers. This events are very stressful, no wonder their hair is turning white at an even faster rate, haha! Okay, all jokes aside, this is a serious matter. Instead of investing their time, efforts and money on her talents, they have wasted them on all these social pressures.Please, help my friend, and her parents, lighten their financial burden, and perhaps use a little to help her out with her new hobby. Although she no longer has the guts to perform on stage and rake in the trophies like she used to, thankfully, she has found a new hobby. Her recent hobby is collecting K-pop girl group merchandise like cards and albums. If you can, help her with this too!Thanks so much for patiently reading this post. I do hope that you can sincerely help my friend, as of now financially first, please bring back the smile in my friend and her family. Thank you once again!

Help us to empower women in Nepal create sustainable livelihoods through entrepreneurial endeavours.TECH Outreach Malaysia is launching Phase II of its Savings and Credit Scheme for Women Headed Households in Nepal. Following the success of our first pilot project, where we disbursed microcredit loans to 17 women and saw significant impact in their lives, we are raising RM40,000 to assist another 20 women break the poverty cycle. Please support us generously! This is a loan that will be repaid to you by March 2019.We first went into Nepal in May 2014 with the microcredit scheme. The 17 women that were selected for the loans had made tremendous progress. They repaid the loans on a weekly basis over a period of 18 months, at 0% interest. The women started small businesses involved in tailoring, food stall, tea shops, vegetable stalls, cosmetics, jewellery and handicrafts. We conducted an impact study in September 2015. The results were amazing, as the women who were once helpless and dependent on handouts, were now running their own businesses, faced with "real" business issues such as marketing, sourcing for customers, keeping their accounts and repaying their loans. Most of these women are either war widows or separated from their husbands, and have young children to support.The Story of Anu TamangWhen TECH Outreach first met her, Anu was separated from her husband for 4 years and lived with her 3 children in a rented single room in a remote monestry in Kathmandu. She was working as an ad-hoc construction worker, while her 9 year old daughter took care of the two younger siblings. She could barely make ends meet and could not afford to send her children to school nor ensured they received at least one meal a day.She received a small loan from TECH Outreach, of NPR50,000 (~MYR2,000) to set up a tea shop cum hotel. She was able to run her business while looking after her children. She worked very hard and ran the shop from 6am - 8pm. Business was good, and she was able to pay her bills, repay her loan fully and even start to save. The TECH Outreach team met Anu and her children again. Her kids looked happy and healthy. Seeing Anu's changed circumstances and demeanor was an inspiration to all in the team!Help us empower more women like Anu to build a better life for themselves and their families!

It has been said that a small gesture of kindness is capable of changing the world. In 1993, the plight of Puan Kelthom Abdullah, a single mother struggling to make ends meet in Kelantan, spurred a group of four young Malaysian students in the UK to run a donation drive to help bear the education costs of her children. This simple act of compassion was the catalyst to the Projek Kalsom as we know it today. Puan Kelthom’s name is immortalised in this humble yet meaningful movement that is now in its twenty-second year.The spark that ignited in the hearts of this initial group of students drove them to initiate a programme to help educate and motivate secondary school students in rural areas of Malaysia who were less fortunate than them.The first Projek Kalsom was held the following year in Jerantut, Pahang, and the success of the first Kalsom has ensured its continuity for two decades.The year 2011 saw Projek Kalsom being fully endorsed by the Ministry of Youth and Sports. In 2012, Projek Kalsom 18 reached another milestone as it was held in East Malaysia for the first time in its history. In 2014, once again, Projek Kalsom 21 committee held its flagship motivational camp in East Malaysia, this time in Sabah, thus successfully organising the camp in all states of Malaysia after 21 years of establishment.This year, The Kalsom Movement 22 committee has gone to great lengths to ensure that the spirit of the Kalsom founders live on through a significant upheaval of the programme, for the benefit the students as well as society at large. Each module of the programme is developed along a development curve to ensure a progressive learning experience to everyone. After each module, the participants will acquire certain skills. The module will start with a personal discovery on individual’s weaknesses and strengths and will end with confidence development.
