Funds raised by YouMeWe NPO go to Still I Rise.

 

We purchased a camera they had on their wishlist. While they are getting more computers, we would like to spread the NIGHTZOOKEEPER Software usage there.

Still I Rise is an independent NGO that operates on the island of Samos, Greece. We run an educational program for refugee children fleeing from war and persecution.
In August 2018, we formally opened Mazì, the first youth education center for displaced refugee youth ages 12-17 years living in the Samos refugee camp. This center provides a safe place for students to learn and grow during their time on the island. Our youth center is named 'Maz’' which means 'together' in Greek. It was crafted with refugee student input, local engagement, and the hard work of many volunteers. We currently cater to 200 refugee children.
Our vision is to care for and protect children, help them realize their full potential, and offer them a fair chance in life. We see the worth of people from all countries and backgrounds and we shout the value of education for children--whether in an orphanage or a refugee camp.
We want children to survive and thrive in Europe, and Mazi strives to act as a bridge between the horrors of their past and a brighter future.
Still I Rise is committed to building an organic and supportive community for learning that will give children the necessary tools to become functional and even influential members of society. We have caring teachers and volunteers who mentor learners.
All children deserve equal chances to thrive through education.

We are in need or more PCs for Europe as the school that was set up by our colleague is in need of more laptops and desktops.

We are hoping to offer classes to the students using NightZooKeeper once we can have enough devices for all children.

The adults in the refugee camps are studying Excel, Word and Powerpoint offline. We would like to sponsor their WIFI connection.

Currently there are instructors who are volunteering and teaching PC skills which we think are important not only for the children but also for the adults who will be seeking employment once they are able to leave the island.

We have had a slow start with this program as there are so many children attending the newly set up school that we need more hardware.

Also in the neighboring Samos Volunteer Center, the adults are learning computer skills and we hope to include them as well as have their children learn language skills online.

Many of the refugees are educated and have work experiences but need new skills when they are granted asylum in order for them to find sustainable employment in their new host countries. These are skills we are hoping to help them with.

When asking a professor at Meiji Universtiy who has strong ties to Syria, what was the most effective way to help the children who have left Syria, she replied "Language".

So, we have installed laptops and the Night Zookeeper software to allow the kids to connect to the YourMeWe School from overseas.
