'Hope Performance with a Difference'
September 13th-21st 2013
2013 is a milestone year for me as my business ‘Take2 Performing Arts School & Casting Agency’ celebrates its 25th year.
I had been wondering how to mark this occasion, and when the Hope Foundation approached me as an experienced Drama teacher to take part & facilitate in their 'Performance with a Difference' project it seemed like the perfect way.
The 'Performance with a Difference' project is an unique opportunity to bring the benefits of Drama and the Performing Arts to the children in HOPE's Protection Homes.
It is also a way to raise much needed funds for HOPE which is an Irish Charity who work towards getting the children off the streets of Calcutta (now Kolkata) and providing them with a better quality of life.
Currently there are around 250,000 children living on the streets and slums in Kolkata.
These children have very little food or clean water. They beg for a living or rummage in scrap-heaps for materials to eat or sell.
At night they sleep on pavements at the side of the road with barely even a blanket for protection.
Every day they face the very real risk of being abused, trafficked or forced into prostitution.
The Hope Foundation believe it should never hurt to be a child and have worked with street children since 1999 to provide education, healthcare, protection, nutrition and above all a future to over 25,000 children in Kolkata.
Now for the part when I ask for help!To take part in this project we will need to raise €5,000 to enable myself & my daughter Shauna to participate, but we 'Hope' to beat this target!
All money raised will go to the Hope Foundation. This money could fund a school for one year with teachers, books, uniforms & meals.
I would very much appreciate your support in helping me to raise funds & I have created a fundraising page.
You can sponsor me via credit or debit card.
Rest assured that your transaction on the mycharity.ie website is very secure.
You will automatically receive an e-mail from me thanking you for your support, and acknowledging the amount of your donation. Any donation you can make, no matter how small, will be hugely appreciated!
Many thanks in advance for your support,
Pamela & Shauna
