The Varkey Foundation

Postby germanforestgump » Mon Mar 14, 2016 7:28 pm

My Grandma, who was a teacher and school director, said to me:
"Children do not learn for their later life - they learn for to please their good teacher, whom they admire!"

To raise the often poor reputation of the teaching profession,
the indian businessman Sunny Varkey, who had build up a net of private schools in the Middle East,
founded his "Varkey GEMS Foundation":

"The Varkey Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established to improve the standards of education for underprivileged children throughout the world.
Our mission is that every child should have a good teacher.
We do this through building teacher capacity, advocacy campaigns to promote excellence in teaching practice at the highest level of policy making
and providing grants to partner organisations that offer innovative solutions in support of our mission."

The Greek Mainland Camp Report

Postby germanforestgump » Sat Apr 23, 2016 8:58 pm

How to organise refugee camps and check their quality?
For example like the "Greek Mainland Camp Report" try to give a survey on the actual refugee camps and checks some issues like:
- initial information (peoples number/capacity, sort of shelter)
- population (nationalities, number of men, women and children)
- location
- infrastructure (tents/buildings, water + food supply, cooking + washing possibilities,toilets, communication + traffic,...)
- issues
- needs (f.ex. clothing, medical aid, schooling,...)
- already in place
- some pictures: ... asic?pli=1

The Aleppo Project: Rebuilding Aleppo from scratch

Postby germanforestgump » Mon May 02, 2016 12:48 pm

This is one more proove for my theory that the best tool for the preserve and transfer of knowledge over a scratch are living human brains:

The Aleppo Project:

"The Aleppo Project is an open collaboration among syrian refugees, students, academics, policy experts and others to come up with ideas on how to rebuild urban life after conflict.
The project is based in Budapest at the "Center for Conflict, Negotiation and Recovery" at the "Central European University"s School of Public Policy.
It brings together students from various schools and departments as well as professors and others.
We are working with syrian refugees and students in Lebanon and Turkey.
The Aleppo Project will produce a variety of reports on many issues about the past, present and possible futures of the city.
We need the help of all Aleppians who can use this site.
Each person who lived in the city has their own maps of Aleppo in their heads.
Maps.(...) Now they are a tool for real people to make decisions about their lives and homes.
By taking the time to put your ideas and images on our map, you can help preserve the past of Aleppo, document its present and start thinking about the future of one of the world´s oldest continually inhabited cities.

Please let others know about this project.
So we can work together to collect as many stories as possible about Aleppo!"
