Fight Against Poverty (Mission Possible)
When donating money towards a cause it is important to know what the money is actually going towards.
There are 8 main projects that i am fundraising for which are:
1. Supporting Orphanages:
Volunteers visit and support the orphanages and orphan projects. we'll get the opportunity to meet with orphans that is sponsored under the Worldwide Orphan Sponsorship Scheme. Mission Possible also tries to ensure that us as volunteers get to organise a fun day with the orphans, either at the orphanage or at a local attraction like a zoo.
2. Malaria Prevention
Malaria remains a big killer in the developing world. As part of Mission Possible we carry out a Malaria prevention awareness campaign which includes leaflet distribution and workshops. We also distribute mosquito nets.
3. Livelihood Projects
Income generation is a real challenge for many in the developing world. In supporting people out of poverty we provide opportunities for setting up small businesses. Us as the Mission Possible volunteers have the opportunity of assisting in this, and in identifying viable opportunities and helping to establish the actual enterprises.
4. Community Awareness Projects
There is a number of initiatives that seek to increase awareness of certain issues and to assist in tackling those issues. The Mission Possible volunteers assist in the delivery of some of the awareness seminars and programmes that is run.
5. Water Solutions
Water scarcity is a real problem and over 1 billion people still lack access to clean water and 2.5 billion people lack adequate sanitation. We build water pumps, wells and other solutions to water scarcity including rain water harvesting systems. The Mission Possible volunteers have the opportunity of being involved in these projects.
6. Environmentally Sustainable Projects
Sustainability is vital to any solutions that we provide to poverty, disadvantage and hunger. We seek to ensure that the solution we provide has long term benefits and is sustainable and eco-friendly. Volunteers are involved in the discussions on this and in the projects that is run.
7. Health Programmes
In addition to Malaria prevention initiatives we also have others initiatives that assist in the improvement of health and hygiene so as to minimise the exposure to disease. Our volunteers assist in the delivery of such programmes of awareness.
8. Supporting Schools
Volunteers provide support to schools and assist with teaching. They will also distribute equipment to the schools they work in
We can only do all this if the target of this fund raise is met. Just put yourself in the position of those in the extreme situation; we have access to clean water from a tap, they barely have access to dirty water which they have to walk long distances for!
Jazak'Allah to those that donate even the smallest amount.
