We are delighted to share a blog written by students Hassan Mohamed and Hussien Mohamed Aros from Victoria College Alexandria, who are part of a team delivering a Global Goals project for the 2019-20 Global Goals Competition.
Their project is among over 957 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 team chose 2 goals the first is goal number 4: Quality of education, we want to develop two points or two things one in education and the other is education related with goal number: Economic growth. First point is that we want to develop the education in our country but we asked ourselves first how to develop Education, our team spoke to our teacher and shared with her our ideas and reviewed her feedback until we all choose the idea to put a new curriculum about global goals, and teach them what global goals mean and how they can help in achieving these goals. For every stage there is a curriculum and we will put an online source or web site that will enable every one to study our curriculum in this online source. Our second point is to give the vocational education about business, industry and agriculture to be able to work after graduating, and to have the ability to do these things and be very creative and successful in work. If the student learn well about business, industry, agriculture and the Economic status of our country will grow.
The skills I have developed in my self and our team is team work and independence and to be brave to tell the people our point of view. At first I threw plastic and didn’t recycle it but now after I know it harms and kills fish i try to recycle it in every available way.
I learned about myself that i can work more under stress and with team work we can get more and better work the biggest challenge is to make people believe in us? We will make them believe in us by our actions in our project and the progress that we will achieve.
The Next Chapter
I don’t have a limit because every day there are new ideas that are brightened to us and that helps us make progress in them. If I put a limit to myself I wouldn’t think of any more ideas. I will believe only a few of my ideas. When I have no limits, i will be able to create new things. I recommend other people at my age to get involved in similar projects, talk to their teachers and join this project.
The 2019-20 GSL Global Goals Competition is now open and runs until June 2020.
