The activity was (please select as appropriate): a. Describe the activity As a whole class we learnt about the differences about charities and youth philanthropy initiative (YPI) we then were instructed to get into groups to raise a sum of money for a charity to present to the class referring to charities based on these headings, domestic violence, homelessness, caregivers, rehabilitation, poverty, unemployment, living with health problems, immigrant/refugee and rehabilitation.
b. Describe your role In my group of five my role was to make sure the presentations were completed, this was done by asking my assistant if she has also completed the part of the charity presentation and me completing it and checking it by reading it and putting both presentations together to make sure it makes full sense. To present to the whole class on our charity refuge, to make people feel persuaded by the language used on this domestic violence charity, to make the class feel more persuaded, want to know more about the charity and interact with us and ask questions about this charity.
Students declaration: I declare that I have produced the work involved without external assistance apart from any which is acceptable under the scheme of assessment and is recorded. Signature: Date: Teachers declaration: I declare that the students activities have been kept under regular supervision and that, to the best of my knowledge, no assistance has been given apart from any which is acceptable under the scheme of assessment and which has been identified and recorded.As a group in unisium we decided to choose the charity Refuge because after debating as a group on how domestic violence is and a member of our group sharing her friends story of how she suffered from domestic violence we then concluded that its one of the most serious cases in our society and decided its there time and season, us as a group to raise this big sum of money for them.
5 reasons why I chose my charity 1.I have a passion to see domestic violence no more so that people in our society believe the home is a happy place or sweet place but not a sad heaven. 2. People in my age suffer domestic violence more than any other age group, so I believe that if we can serve in this charity, we can relate better with victims of domestic violence in any society. 3.Domestic violence is a major cause of teenage death by suicide because victimised they have no one to turn to or talk to not even friends which leads them to the thought of terminating their lives. 4.Victims of domestic violence tends to move towards drugs and substance abuse which I dream to see come to an end in our society, because domestic violence is the root of the substance abuse/drugs which causes criminal violence in our society free from criminal violence so in order for this to happen we must deal with the root.
5.My charity is involved in solving the problem of domestic violence. What i found out about this charity Refuge is that they only deal with women and children domestic violence cases and when they suffer from home crisis, family problems or abuse they ring up this charity and explain their situation to them and the charity oraganise the charity cabs to go and pick the women or child up from what location the women or child has given them and find them and bring them to the charity and know the full story of what happened and how it started in order for the charity to know what to do next.
What i found out about the people in the organisation is that they are gifted to help children who are victims of domestic violence when a case is reported the children arrive at the charity they then speak to one of the staffs deeply about there problem in depth and then are advised that the case will be settle so no need to worry about it and then is taken to a refuge home which is the place where the women and the children stay for a while until their cases are settled with the charity.
This shows that the poeple in the organisation listen very well which creates an environment of freedom, the victims can open up very well and communicate to listening hears of the people in the organisation.The organisation is set up in a way where by they cater in for the need of victims through available facilities such as human resources and modern facilities which is used to investigate the truth about each case.When the victims arrives a member of staff takes the patient to a personal manger who you can share and communicate with more becuase what is said between both of you is kept between both of you.
