Stand Alone Missions

 

Mission:   Elementary School

Year:          2017

Location:  Jaco, Costa Rica

We came across a small school of over 40 students ranging from Kindergarten to Grade 4. Our goal was simple: To promote sports for young children by providing them with their own equipment such as soccer balls, basketballs, volleyballs, pylons, rackets, etc, and also school essentials such as pens, notebooks, pencil cases, chalk, etc. Some chocolate definitely put a smile on their faces too! We received a very warm welcome when we arrived. We arranged a soccer game with the children at recess. At the end of the game, the kids all came back and tried to return the equipment to us. When we told them it belongs to them now, they lit up like a Christmas tree. It was a fantastic experience.

Mission:    Helping Sabir

Year:           2016

Location:  Karachi, Pakistan

This is Sabir Shah, he is a 37-year-old BSc Honour Graduate. He was born with a hearing disability, therefore, could not find a job despite his impressive academic resume. As the only provider of a family of 7, he decided to drive a rickshaw. In June 2016 a bomb blast in the city destroyed his rickshaw and other valuables. Fortunately, he was not near the accident at the time. Sabir's story is touching because of his perseverance and motivation of not letting his disability stop him. Mission 1 World bought him a new rickshaw so he can continue with his earnings. All the best to our friend Sabir!

Mission:     Anti-bullying

Year:           2019

Location:  Sanghar, Pakistan

Bullying has affected school systems around the world drastically. To help in nipping this cruel behaviour in the bud, Mission 1 World organized awareness programs among students through an essay writing competition at a school in the city of Sanghar. We then awarded cash prizes and certificates to the writers of the top 3 submissions. Aside from the top 3 writers, all the students felt more empowered with their newly shared knowledge of how to acknowledge and stop bullying.

Life in Kabul, Afghanistan can be very difficult, even more so as a widow who is paralyzed from the waist down with three young children. “Getting around is a nightmare!” she explained. “I had a wheelchair that I was using for the past 12 years, but that stopped working. Getting around now is very difficult.” We were able to reach out and provide Abiba with a new wheelchair. She was so overwhelmed with happiness and gratitude. The smile on her face spoke a thousand words.
