We are delighted to share a blog written by Noura jaber Alnyadi, a student at Applied Technology High School, United Arab Emirates who is part of a team delivering a Global Goals project for the 2018-19 Global Goals Competition.
Their project is among over 620 social action projects currently running as part of the GSL movement and we are excited to be supporting them to design and lead positive social change in their community.
Our goal is to collect 1000 books from volunteers and donate it to charities and needed
Our experience was very challenging but we finally achieve our goal.
We created “one thousand book mission” project to spread knowledge and education worldwide. Education is a right for many children in the world that they can’t reach it easily due to poverty and wars that has destroyed their country and its ID. Our goal is to collect 1000 books from volunteers and donate it to charities and needed schools however, we faced many difficulties to collect the needed amount of books to accomplish our project therefore, we shared our project over social media and websites to gain some support. we also created a booth in our school to encourage students to donate books. So far We are half way through achieving our goal.
Through the process of coming up with a good project and working through it, we faced many difficulties where we felt like it would be impossible for us to overcome them on our own. All the projects we have made through our school years were not of much importance to people and the results of them werent as important as the one we are working on right now. Trying to come up with an idea that could help millions of people to achieve one of the 17 goals was a very difficult task. But we were able to decide on doing the ” 1000 book mission” to try and give all people a chance of reading at least one book. The project improved our teamwork and imagination skills, it made it possible for us to make a change.
The Next Chapter
For the future, we are thinking of improving our project by going worldwide, having free book booths and increasing the number of donated books by 1.2 % every 3 months. We are also thinking of achieving other goal from the 17 goals and would like to help young people to participate in the global goals competition to achieve any of the 17 goals, all to have a better and a more peaceful world.
The 2018-19 GSL Global Goals Competition is now open and runs until June 2019. If you belong to one of the 700+ teams of students currently delivering a social action project as part of the competition we would love to hear from you and feature your blog and project photos on our website to inspire others.
