We are delighted to share a blog written by Ayomide Somorin, a student at Greensprings School 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.
Feed our nation is a non profit organization based on feeding the hungry, the rate of poverty is very high where I come from and many people die of starvation because they don’t have money to buy food and me and my team are trying to stop that, one mouth at a time.
Seeing how many people suffer from lack of food is really depressing and I am able to get food while others can even have one meal a day this really inspired me and my team to start a charity just for this cause.
We are planning donating uncooked food so it can be used for a long period of time to homeless shelters and still doing food drives to homeless shelters.
On this journey my team and I have developed team bonding, dedication for our charity, communication skills, organizational skills and discipline.
Also on this journey I have learned how much I am passionate about this cause, how much time and effort I am willing to put into this cause just to make sure no one has to suffer from hunger again.
My biggest challenge is raising the money to continue to charity and make sure it can really make a change even if it’s a small one although my team and I have been brainstorming ideas on how to raise money
The Next Chapter
I’m the future I hope my charity has really made a change in my community.
I would recommend people my age to get involved in similar projects because we are the future leaders and we do not have to wait till we are adults to make a change in our community we can start now!
I really encourage young people to get involved in similar projects not only does it help your community but it also helps yourself.
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.
