Honor the 51 lives lost, by Empowering 51 lives in a Developing Country
Establishing micro-businesses for 51 people who lack the luck of life.Canterbury
We are going to honor the 51 lives lost in the Christchurch Mosque Shootings, by empowering 51 lives in a developing country, through establishing micro-businesses for 51 people. In 2019 according to BBC, Afghanistan was rated the most dangerous country in the world. Therefore, that is where we will begin our project. Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel approves of the project and has called it a 'living memorial' for the ones we tragically lost on March 15th.
We will set up micro-businesses for 51 people, who will be selected according to a certain criteria. We do not believe in charity, we wish to empower people who already posses capabilities, yet lack the opportunities.
Information about micro-credit and why we believe it is the key to solving poverty,
So far, our generous contributors to this venture are,
- Change for our Children
- Te Raranga
- University of Canterbury
- Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board
- North Methodist Parish
The entire journey will be Vlogged. There will be special videos created for those that empower at least 1 person. The footage will be compiled into a documentary, that will be premiered in Christchurch in March 2020.
