Join one of our project teams this semester…
Fight Nigerian Human Trafficking: Help Nadia educate Nigerian parents to prevent them from believing lies about jobs in Europe and selling their children to human traffickers. Nadia Woghiren, a 46-year-old Nigerian-born mother of four and an NU nursing student, needs help with an awareness campaign. She needs a team to research and reach out to local or international NGOs in Nigeria who already fight human trafficking – to help with programming and keeping her awareness team safe, and others to discover IGAs (income-generating activities) to fund her program. She has other ideas, such as a rehab facility for survivors, that also need to be thought out more. With your help, we can bring her ideas to reality!
Gleentown Education: Help Manting Hong, an NU junior, with her organization that teaches soft skills in week-long summer camps to rural Chinese students in grades 2 – 5. In four years, Gleentown has taught communication and analytical thinking skills in fun, teamwork-oriented classes to about 1,500 children. Help her improve her marketing on We Chat to get more volunteers and to figure out IGAs (income-generating activities) to bring financial stability to the program.
Additive (3D Printing): Join our team as we teach 3D printing to high schoolers! Dearborn Stem Academy is a ten minute bus ride from campus, and we’ll probably be teaching either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday from 12-1pm. The day of the week will be decided in a few weeks. If you’ve never 3D printed before, don’t worry! It’ll only take a few hours to learn the basic design software and how the printer works. If you can’t make those times but are still interested, there is a social media position available. You’ll just need to post some photos & videos the media person is taking and reach out to some NU news outlets.
