Here is how Volunteering got two friends to spend time together. Being in different colleges, we don’t get enough time to meet often, volunteering for opportunities by ConnectFor has made us come way closer, understand each other better, support each other even if there is a conflict of interest. It has had a huge impact on not just our friendship but in our personal lives too, we have found the much-needed potential to serve in the social sector and make a difference. We believe in working towards seeing a better tomorrow. We always loved participating in events, not any particular type, just being out there and making a difference. We both love painting and so I (Dhvani) was introduced to ConnectFor by a friend as she was an artist with ConnectFor since a while and I signed up as an assistant artist to help her out in a beautification event I told Olenka about the same and she too found it fascinating to be a part of it. That was it, both of us liked to interact with people and the vivid kind of opportunities ConnectFor offers us to be a part of. Initially, it used to be just attending beautification of schools, houses, etc. then we developed a strong liking towards the other opportunities too and our presence on most events says a lot about our experience being associated with ConnectFor. If their story inspired you, join us today and Volunteer with your friends.

And my accolades go to Paul Tabichi who have given selflessly to his rural community. More than 90% of his pupils are from poor families and almost a third are orphans or have only one parent. Drug abuse, teenage pregnancies, dropping out early from school, young marriages and suicide are common. Students have to walk 7km along roads that can become impassable in the rainy season to reach the school and the area can be affected by drought and famine. Award-winning teacher among staff needing charity to scrape by Despite only having one computer, a poor internet connection and a student-teacher ratio of 58:1, Tabichi started a “talent nurturing club” and expanded the school’s science club, helping pupils design research projects of such quality that many now qualify for national competitions.

The journey to receiving a home care package is complex and often confronting. Once an assessment has taken place and a package has been assigned, which could take up to eighteen months, there are then the complexities of choosing a home care provider. One option is to ‘self manage’ your home care package, an option that the Sydney Morning Herald says can be done with platforms such as Mable. Click the link in bio to find out how.
I have made a decision to write my thesis on Krisan Sanzule Refugee Camp. To me personally, this is a massive goal. It's not just a school project, but it also aligns with my values and current/future goals to help those living in unending exile. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The last few days have been very hard. My research questions were either too broad or narrow. Happy to say a final decision has been made today and my question has been accepted. I'm also praying for my ethics application to be approved...geez, this isn't going to be easy. 🙏⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While doing some research online today, I discovered this book and it gave me goosebumps, so I'm going to buy it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Has anyone read it? Please let me know!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #refugeeswelcome#passion#poverty#awareness#genuine#refugees#advocate#nevergiveup#humanrights#dreambig#success#photooftheday#empowerment#dogood#hardwork#unik_fleur_charity #charitywork#charity#giving#socialworker#socialchange#exile#charityevent#africa#humanity#books#hunger
Stephen Fry is a great advocate for mental health and is aware of the pain that is caused by mental illness. It’s also very painful for those who are supporting someone with a mental illness such as depression, and Stephen’s statement here is very true. There’s no band-aid, aspirin or heat/ice pack that can be used to treat depression, so non-judgemental support is the best way to help.
Hi I’m Madinah and I’m multifaceted as fuck. I got a wide range of human ass emotions and I can’t keep my cool around racists. Yesterday at the white supremacist protest I learned some things. I can’t keep my cool around those people. Every inch of me wanted to get violent. Multiple people were protecting me and calming me down. While I was confronting some of them, I was loud, cursing. They’d tone-police me and say I was inherently violent like other Muslims. I realized how life could be like for black folks. White privilege allows for you to be calm because your life isn’t in danger. But when you feel your humanity is on the line, you’re not thinking about keeping people comfortable. Your primal instincts take over. Your ancestors whisper in your ears. Every fiber of your being is telling you to fight. As I work to become a community leader, I hope I can learn to be patient. To breathe and to stare hate in the eyes without pig cops asking me to calm down 😂
• NO WORDS • Those who know me are aware that I’m rarely short of words. Today is different. Not only because I spoke so much over the last 4 days of facilitating the ‘50-hour yoga for trauma anxiety depression and body image’ training. Also because I’m flawed....by this courageous group of yoga teachers who invited me to guide them through shadowy conversations about difficult topics of privilege, body image, trauma and the role of the yoga industry in harming or healing. And flawed by how open these yoga teachers were these past 4 days. Their willingness to face the shadows together and laugh at the same time. Remarkable. I could not feel more full of connection and joy than I am today. Tired, too of course. Off to a big sleep tonight.....
