We are 12 participants of the International Youth Initiative Program. preparing to embark on our midterm internships to South Africa, Nepal, the Philippines, and the USA. We will be engaging with well-established local organizations to study and assist with social and environmental sustainability projects such as eco-building and crafting, gang intervention, participation in government, and organic farming. We are fundraising for our internship plane tickets, food and accommodation as well as the second half of our tuition payment for YIP. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT :)
The International Youth Initiative Program is a Sweden-based social entrepreneurship program for young people to explore social and environmental alternatives for a sustainable future. The eclectic course curriculum encompasses study of social sciences, ecology, modern and ancient mystical traditions, and the arts. The progam philosophy encourages approaching platforms for social change through the development of self-knowledge.
Drawing participants from all over the world, the YIP experience rests on the foundation of participants willingly forming a loving and functional community together over the course of the year which is based on the principles of study in the curriculum design.
The internship phase of YIP is a vitally important one, wherein participants are given a wide, global arena to implement the tools honed during courses and challenge the viability of techniques for social sustainability through practice. Your support will not only help us with plane fare and other traveling expenses, but also with spreading the word that there is an optimistic network of people at work here who are devoted to shaping a socially and environmentally sustainable future. We are fundraising for our internship plane tickets, food and accommodation as well as the second half of our tuition payment for YIP. Thank you so much :)
