From March 25 – April 26, 2010, TYO is competing to earn a spot on the GlobalGiving website, and earn up to US $6,000 from Global Giving by being one of the top fundraisers in the ‘Global Open’ Challenge. The organization with the greatest number of individual donations will win $3,000, and a separate $3,000 prize will go to the project, which raises the most money. The second and third place runners up for both achievements will get $2,000 and $1,000 respectively. In order to keep our project on GlobalGiving longer term, and use their website for ongoing fundraising, we need to raise a minimum of US $4,000 from at least 50 unique donors during the Challenge.
Please visit our project page and keep an eye on the leaderboard to see how we are stacking up!
This spring our GlobalGiving project supports our International Internship Program! International Community Development Interns lead enriching programs for children, youth and adults from refugee camps and other marginalized areas of Nablus. Each intern develops and implement their own creative, 3-month program, acts as important role model for over 1,000 community members, documents participants’ learning and development, and takes part in valuable intercultural cooperation. In October 2009, after two successful summer internship programs, TYO added fall and spring internship opportunities to its program. The International Internship Program is an essential part of TYO’s work. International interns make it possible for us to double the amount of classes we can offer the community of Nablus. Additionally, interns gain powerful and invaluable insights into the worlds of teaching, education and Nablus. We help us to continue this important program by supporting our project on Global Giving now.
You can help us raise money, earn a spot for our projects on GlobalGiving longer term and earn GlobalGiving prize money by spreading the word!
