The Muchik Biba School is a “Free School” because it lacks proper facilities. It only relies on open areas such as parks, sports fields and facilities, which are often occupied by others and are unsafe for children. We have a high degree of crime in the area. Faced with these difficulties and as a manner of support for the children’s safety, we have been allowed to use the Parish Hall. In return we provide maintenance and help them with expenses for basic services such as electricity and water.
Currently the project is promoted based on the works carried out in the workshops of “Marinera” and folk dancing. We hope to continue adding workshops in painting, music, drama. These are the best activities to showcase our work in the community via photographic records.
Guidelines for Setting Up The Online Wish Exchange:
a) By using this Exchange, you agree to participate at your own risk. You are responsible for all of your communications online and in person, and must do your own research and make your own choices in order to keep yourself safe.
b) Give and Receive Freely. No strings attached. All wish gifts offered and requested must be freely given without any expectations or restrictions.
c) Be honest in your communications and practice Natural Law by doing no harm. Set your intention to serve others and offer kindness as you serve.
d) Show your compassion. Remember that each person you meet is a real person with a real life, in a real place. We are all just learning, so practice patience because there may be some glitches in the process.
e) Let your compassion and good intentions flow and be prepared to receive, no matter which end of the receiving you are on.
Each School Has A Unique Email Address where you, the donor can contact them. The exchange is between the two of you. The GEAC is providing the avenue for which you can communicate, but we are not responsible for any exchanges. They are strictly between you and the recipient
Please understand that in some countries, like Africa, used goods such as clothing are not accepted because most of these items are intercepted and sold on the black market. You may also find that postage and shipping costs are quite high in some parts of the world, and that it may be more cost effective to donate money instead.
i. Include, in this order:
1. Your general geographic location (to see if postage is feasible or to arrange pick up/delivery) and to narrow down the search, such as “New York city area, USA”.
2. Name of the Post; what you are giving away or what you are looking for, as an example; “Girls, size 6 clothes” or “2021 Dell computer with internet access”
3. Give a complete description (with sizes, if appropriate), including the condition of the item
ii. You can include a photo(s)s with your posts
iii. Please participate as yourself. We don’t have the time or patience to deal with bots, spam, trolls, etc.
a) The person who posted the item will receive a personal message from the interested party. It could read something like this, “I am interested in the classroom materials you posted today. Can we discuss this at your convenience? I am located in…”
b) The two of you can then send messages back and forth until you come to an agreement on the item in the post. Keep in mind that postage/shipping costs may be prohibitive in some instances, along with extensive paper work for customs, if you send internationally.
c) Practice patience as not everyone can speak the same language. Use a language translator, if necessary and most of all, have fun!
a) If the wish gift is shipped, please notify the wish giver that you received it, immediately upon its arrival. You will need proof that you received it, so tale photos and or videos. You can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and it the files are large, you can compress them or send them through https://wetransfer.com/ .
b) If the wish gift is received in person, be gracious and thankful for the gift.
c) It is always appropriate to follow up and thank the wish gift giver, using your email exchange.
d) The GEAC would also like to send you, the donor, a thank you, so please send us information about your exchange to: email@example.com
