"Had there been no school meals, I would have been married by now."

(Grace, 15)

This quotation is from a school girl in Malawi. On WomenWatch I read about an interesting project from the World Food Programme. First I was confused what the WFP could have to do with empowering woman. The article on WomenWatch said, that one reason why parents send particularly their daughters to…

Faces of forced labour

The story deals about forced labour from all region and different sectors. The most affected people are womans and youths. The majority of bonded labourers are in Asia and Latin America and that's partly slavery-related practices. But it is possible to combat forced labour with punishing trafficking in persons and strengthening labour inspection.

The first female president in Afghanistan has been elected today, on the 1st of June 2020!

I picked the global giving project "Learning Centers for Rural Afghan Women in Herat".

This project enables more than 7,000 young women to participate in literacy, english and income-generating skills cla**** at the Women’s Learning Centers in Herat.

Until 2020, the regions around the women learning centers have developed very well. First of all, there have been founded a lot of start up companies since 2010. There is almost no unemployment in this region and the cities could…

Empowering Women_ACT_6

For this week mission I informed myself a lot about violence against women and children. So I decided to support an association which helps women who are not able to extricate themselves from their awkward disposition. And this association gives starting aid for a life after violence and savageness.

But for me it was important to support an association which is around me so I can be sure that my donation came in. Some days ago I phoned with my parents and I told them about my thoughts…

Empowering Women_6

Investigating about empowering women I found a lot of 'examples' around the world which affect physicality of women. For me it is really detesting and cruel to force women and unfortunately also children into sexual acts.

I am particularly saddened by the atrocities Haitian women often have to endure. After the earthquake in 2010, the situation for the inhabitants especially for women was inhumane and degrading. There was no security in the displacement camps. There was no food; there…

World water day 2020

For world water day I would set up a fun event at the beach with lots of sporty activities, but would also see if I could get a replica of the AfriDev or the PlayPump in, to show everyone what children in developing countries have to do for water. I would also set up an event for a full 24hours, instead of earth hour we could have water day. An event where participants go for one day without water.

IMAGINE6 - in 2020 the islamic states begin to secularise

I hope that one day the woman in afganistan can go to school and university like every man can do.
I hope that woman have equal rights and that they can working at the same positions like man.
But as long as the Koran is the basis for legislation, so to say that there is no secularization, women were oppressed by the men. Before the woman can get equal rights the Islam has to change basically. I hope in 2020 this will happen.

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.

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
