This project will empower 500 young talents from Tajikistan by bringing Mr. Benjamin Burg, Founder and President of Trips Beyond the Classroom, to Tajikistan. He'll meet young talents, engage with teachers, visit schools, and create an impactful video. Benjamin is an exceptional teacher who has been educating Tajikistani students virtually. Now, we need funds for his travel expenses to bring his inspiring message to rural Tajikistan. Your contribution will make a difference.
Access to justice and equality through quality education is among the major problems faced by rural youth in Tajikistan. The experience of our students can be greatly improved by addressing the challenges of isolation and the absence of motivational leaders and influences. When students feel isolated, they often develop a sense of helplessness, believing that no one truly cares about their development and success.
Mr Benjamin's personal visit to rural areas of Tajikistan and his meetings with students will help them discover their internal drive, passions and ignite their curiosity and identify their interests. He will expose students to diverse cultural perspectives from around the world, encourage discussions, presentations, or assignments that explore different cultures, customs, and ways of thinking. This exposure can broaden their horizons, stimulate critical thinking, and inspire creativity.
The impact on young individuals can leave an indelible mark on their lives. Mr. Burg's influence has the power to inspire children, urging them to strive diligently in their academic pursuits and fostering the belief that success is indeed attainable. Moreover, these encounters can play a pivotal role in shaping a young person's early inclinations towards democratic values and principles.
