Our English School
Organized by: Suha Al-Afifi
"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." I know, I know, cliché isn't it? Yet certainly true. I can ask you to donate so I can finish school, or so my mom can buy a house, or to help all of those in need here in Gaza, but I won't. Instead, I'm asking you to kindly donate so I can start an English school. This will create a place of employment, not only for me but for other English teachers as well. It will give our students a place to learn and have fun, and it will give back to the community we live in. How will it help others? You can look at this as a bit of an unconventional way to raise money for charity. Instead of giving the money directly at only one time, this place will give to those in need every month a portion of whatever profit it makes. Yes, this is a business startup, but I promise to give back every dollar donated here to charity and continue to help my community afterwards, and for as long as this school stays. I say "charity" in general because the money will go to many recipients, and probably towards a different cause each month. I know it's not much but I will keep a Facebook page of the school that will show where the donations will go to every month.
