Zach's Volunteer Trip to Jordan

Organized by: Zach Cartwright

EVENT DATE Aug 16, 2015

THE STORY:

I have been chosen to serve at the Young Muslim Women’s Association (YMWA) Centre for Special Education during the 2015-2016 academic year. Another volunteer and I will be enthusiastically representing Foundation Outreach International, a non-profit Christian outreach organization, in an Arab-Muslim culture where the highest level of moral behavior is required. I will have the privilege to teach vocational skills to mentally challenged students. 

I've set up this CrowdRise account because multiple people have approached me asking how they can help, and I wanted to make it as easy as possible for them!

My main financial needs include:

  • an airplane ticket to Jordan from Texas (the charity will provide the return ticket)
  • a laptop computer
  • passport and baggage fees,
  • a Visa to stay in Jordan for the duration of the project

I will be working this summer to pay for as much of this as I can myself, but I will still need all the help I can get.

More about the Young Muslim Women's Association Centre for Special Education & Foundation Outreach International:

"The Centre for Special Education was established in 1974 with the aim of providing services for students between the ages of 3 and 18 with mild and moderate mental disabilities. This pioneer project started out in rented premises with 18 students and 3 staff members. By 1981, the International Year of the Disabled, the number had risen to 80 and the Centre moved from its small rented house to its purpose-built facilities in Bunayat, Amman. Today, it is regarded as a center of excellence, both nationally and regionally, serving over 170 students in its preschool, school and prevocational sections.

Foundation Outreach International Board members have a long history of involvement with the YMWA, dating back to the Ambassador Foundation project of the 1980s and 1990s. We participate in the school by the direct invitation of Her Royal Highness Princess Sarvath El Hassan."
