Global Community Volunteers Taking Flight Silent Auction
Global Community Volunteers is in the process of becoming a non-profit volunteer organization to help international communities in need. On April 28th, we are holding an event at the Himalayan Chutney Restaurant in Poulsbo, which will include a silent auction to help raise funds to provide the necessary materials for our programs.
After spending a month volunteering in Bir, Himachal Pradesh, India this last year, we discovered what little curricula the children in the area have. There are no visual aids, no basic classroom necessities, no libraries, etc. Our experience in Bir brought home to us the need for such basic materials so that young people in under-privileged communities will have more than just hope on which to build the educational experience they so desperately desire and need.
GCV's programs will start in Bir. We will be visiting this Tibetan refugee community this summer with our first group of volunteers! GCV will purchase and provide extensive curricula in English, Math, Science, Art and World History/Social Studies for the local students. We also want to provide our teaching volunteers with all the tools they will need to make their volunteer efforts there a success.
The April 28th event will be the launching point for GCV. In turn, once GCV is up and running, all profits will be donated back into the communities that we serve.
Building partnerships within local communities in Asia, Eastern Europe, South America and Africa, GCV will not only be developing educational programs but will also provide services in health, animal welfare, recycling, environmental, agricultural and small-scale construction to these communities.
