The story and the Cause:
For many years I have travelled our planet full of wanderlust .
One important thing that I have discovered along the way in my travels is that we are all connected, on some basic human level and whether we like to admit it or not we are more alike than not, we all feel sadness, fear, joy, pain and a plethora of other feelings in varying degrees. I realize that i am on this earth for a short period of time ,we are all really just passing through, i cant help but think that we have all been at some point in our lives in a postion where we needed help and had somone help us out . Keeping that in mind i have decided to use this initiative of piloting a plane around the world to try help out those children trapped in the vicious poverty cycle by raising awarness and gather donations for one of the most active charities in my home town ,Dubai Cares ( http://www.dubaicares.ae/en ). The world can be and is in many instances an unjust place, many people around the world fall victims to the vicious poverty cycle.
When I was a child I remember how reluctant I used to be to get on a plane to go on our family’s annual vacation that usually took us to two or three new countries around the globe. In my early teens I started noticing the similarities between myself and those those kids in those countries , in my mid to late teens I went of to college and discovered independent travel with friends, backpacking through some of the less developed countries of the world, in my early twenties I focused on independent adventure travel to exotic and off the beaten path destinations ,as time went by I travelled extensively for work and used those trips as a springboard to other trips into new countries and exciting adventures …The truth is that I have been hooked on the love of discovering new cultures and awe inspiring places right from the beginning ,starting with the first childhood trip that I have taken with my parents and I didn't even know it.Today not only do I look forward to getting on that plane that will take me to my next travel experience …I am actually going to fulfil a child hood dream and pilot the plane that will take me around the world to revisit old places and discover new ones. God willing i will able to combine my love for aviation and my passion for travel to raise awarnesss about the poverty cycle and muster some some support to on eof the charities on the frontline of the combat against poverty, Dubai cares.
THE UNITED NATIONS adopted the Millennium Declaration, the right to education for all was set in 2000. It states that education is the key to a just world. That By 2015 to ensure that all children complete a full course of primary schooling worldwide.One of the most important aspects to making the above mentioned declaration a success is to break out of the poverty cycle by addressing the issue of education.What many may not be aware of is that education in many underdeveloped countries is dependent to a big extent on nutrition and health care. When parents see that the only option to put food on the table is to have their children leave school to work with them or elsewhere the children are robbed not only of an education but a childhood. When children don’t have much to eat then their health is affected and going to school goes down to the bottom of the list of priorities.When children are not educated about proper nutrition and hygiene they fall sick .The end result is that education stops.
Education is the way to break the poverty cycle and the right of every child.
There are many reasons for hunger around the world, climatic conditions, corruption, war and conflict, mismanagement ,politics and economic factors.
The mssion of Dubai Cares ,one of my favourite charities with the following Focus Areas:-
"Our mission to increase children’s access to quality primary education is realised through integrated programs that eliminate the underlying obstacles that prevent children from going to school and learning. This is achieved through school feeding, deworming activities, early childhood education, curriculum development, literacy and numeracy through teacher training, school infrastructure as well as Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in schools.
Gender equality is a cross cutting theme in all Dubai Cares’ education programs with an approach that aims to secure equal access for boys and girls to safe learning environments with adequate facilities, materials and academic support from qualified teachers and engaged communities.
Central to Dubai Cares’ approach is a focus on monitoring, evaluation and learning. Through the design and support of catalytic and innovative programs, Dubai Cares seeks to test alternative models and hypothesis that can increase the impact of interventions and contribute to the global body of evidence-based best practices."
