Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

CAT, Craft and Teach is a community and service in our school to teach English and how to make handicrafts. They teach kids English, most of them girls, and teach woman how to make handicrafts. I contributed to this community as a helper photographer to doc**ent their community and service progress.

Pros of this action:
Woman: It actually teaches them how to create different types of handicraft not just giving them the finished handicraft for them to use. By teaching them how to make those different types of handicraft it teaches them to learn how to make it. By the time where they already know how to make they will be possible to make by themselves without being teach by the CAS members and keep creating the handicrafts. Those handicrafts in the picture is being made by recycles material such as plastic bag of water soap to create a hand bag.

Teaching girls English: The girls are learning English for free from students. They learn basic English words such as, body parts, color and supplies. They draw and learn the words.

Cons:
Woman: Only certain woman in that village are learning on how to make handicraft and the handicraft that they are creating on that picture is being made from recycled plastic. There should be enough plastic collected to make that handicraft. They also learned on how to make some sort of bracelets but thats also being made from recycle paper that were collected in our school. Thus they will need lots of recycle material to create those handicrafts

Girls: They are only learning the basic words, not structure of the sentence. Not learning from real English teacher.

Woman makes the handicraft products out of the recycle material that is being brought by our CAS members from school. So, when they know how to make that handicraft bag later they will be able to make by themselves without the CAS members help anymore. However they won't have enough recycles plastic to make the bag every time. Therefore school could collect the recycle plastic and send it to there for every 3 months for example and they can make the bag out of it and maybe sell it and earn own profit.

Teaching the girls English. They are still learning the basic words maybe later on when they are quite good at words they could learn the sentence structure so they can learn how to speak English in sentence not just the words.

The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

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
