Learn 7 - Dengue Fever and the importan of Ushaidi

I am afraid that my country could be a serious victim of the dengue plague, we already have more 5000 suspicious cases and 1800 confirmed for this year.

IMAGINE 6 - The future of the girl named Kunar

Today I meet Kunar, she is one of the 15 women we help learn to read in 2010. Who could ever think that the money of our lunch there my co workers and I decided to donate one day in April of 2010 could be so helpful.



After 10 years of effort Kunar is now a part of the Afghanistan Government.



When she told the story of how she was part of the program and how she learned to read thanks this program, I was in shock, I could not believe that the money we spend in my…

Learn 5 - Time Bank (Banco del Tiempo).

I think this is the best idea I ever heard, The Time Banking focus in the important of people and what they can offer to the community.



This is a little introduction to the subject:



A time-based currency is an alternative currency where the unit of exchange is the man-hour.

Some time-based currencies value everyone’s contributions equally.

One hour equals one service credit. In these systems, one person

volunteers to work for an hour for another person; thus,… Continue

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
