I moved here to California from Manchester age 20, after graduating from Oxford university. My family still lives in England and they do the same as I'm doing! We are trying to build relationships in different communities build bonds between neighbors and taking children from playing on the streets and putting them in a safe environment. I bought a house here in California, my home isn't like a normal home! I don't and living rooms and bedrooms, my four bedroom home it built perfectly to be divided into different sections. I offer a study hall, for children after school to come and learn and play with me and my team! We have books of all shapes and sizes, math and English tutors on hand. We have a multipurpose room where we tend to play all of our games and teambuilding exercises. We have a room we use just for expression, children's minds all work differently so we use equipment to help express how they feel. I've been doing this for four years, after getting duel citizenship of United States of America and England I thought that I could get help from government funding but just shows the American doesn't really care about children on the streets the education well that will be citizenship of United States of America and England I thought that I could get help from government funding but just shows that America doesn't really doesn't care about children on the streets, the education they are receiving all the problems that they're having at home . We are raising the next generation , we need to put all of our time and effort into these children! Bigger facilities , more things for them to do! I live in this home by myself, but it is and will always be open to any child that needs support or guidance . I have six people that volunteer Monday through Sunday. Parents are getting involved, we do family days out, we just need more people and more space!! Please help me help the next generation , I took on a Challenge and I'm hitting a wall! I work long hours in the evening to pay my mortgage and my bills I have no more trust fund I have no more savings I really don't want to give up on these kids ! I'm 25 in October and I believe with the right amount of time/people and space I can make a difference in a child's life!! In 2009 my Business studies teacher gave me the greatest gift of life, a one way ticket to America with a work visa and a ready and waiting job " I still Bartend and serve there". He gave me £10,000 and told me to always dream big! I have for filled my dream but I'd like to continue doing so I don't want it to and I don't want to stop trying I don't want to helpintroduce! I have no idea what this is or how this works but asking around led me to this site. I'd love to be able to keep in touch with anyone who'd like to help us, show you what we can do with the right people!! I have one word I use every single day , every child could tell you in their own words what I say. BIG!!! Books Individuals Goals Lets make a better us for our future selves!!
