We are delighted to share a blog written by Gianna Cigala, a student at Hua Hin International 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.
So far we have been done a cupcake bake sale at school where we raised money for the local community in Pala – U which is the charity we are working with currently. We also visited the village and decided on what to do as our next step what is our solution.
We have seen what’s needed to be done and we talked to the local community and come up with an agreement. We have to visit them again just to see where we are at and what’s needed to be done.
We are thinking of possibly do another money raising events because the cupcake was very successful and on valentine’s day we had a non school uniform day and students had to pay 50 baht and we raised 10,000 baht all together with the cupcakes now our next step for us is to see what needs to be done.
I think we have developed a lot of various skills . I’ve learned that making a difference makes you feel better because your helping the world not just the community even if its something small it’s something to be proud of and to really think about in depth think about what impact does it have on our world their community our local area our country just everything really.
You change the world Step by step and it’s a huge benefit and as a 15 year old student I am proud of myself and others who made a huge impact or our world. One person one individual can still make a huge difference even if its small that something I’ve learned and something i will always remember and think about.
The Next Chapter
I would recommend this to their students that may do similar activities as me because i think this makes a different and the other students should be given the same opportunity as us. I think the more that do this it can change the world massively because you don’t get this opportunity everyday we are fortunate to be given this opportunity because we can use this for our future it would look good on our jobs and this is something we should be proud of it.
We can tell other individuals how to make a difference in the world based on this project but also we can use this experience in our everyday life.
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.
