Beautiful Balance Inspirations

Goal: $3,000.00

Specific Need

The fundraising for the remaining 2020 year will focus on sponsoring a youth writing contest for the Meadville area including all 5th-12th grade students who reside in Crawford Central school district, PENNcrest school district and Conneaut school district. The students may be from the public schools, private schools, cyberschools or homeschool opportunities as well, as long as their residence is in our target area three school districts. We have the potential to see 3,000 or more students participate. Two age groups of middle school and high school and first through third places will give us 24 winners. The final prize along with each catagory of prizes will be to have all the winner's entries and honorable mention entries copywrited and published. This project would like to be sustainable each year with only non-published students being allowed to enter.

Mission

Beautiful Balance Inspirations exists to offer education, healthcare and microfinance opportunities here in the USA and at our world centers in Africa, India and Romania.

Profile

     Beautiful Balance Inspirations was founded after taking a return trip back to India with our adopted daughter. Our family enjoyed the heritage event but felt compelled after returning home to the USA to partner in a more significant manner to raise up education, healthcare and microfinance opportunites both here and at partnering centers around the world. Each partner center is a registered non government organization (NGO) in their home nations. They are run by national/native individuals in their respective countries. This allows any funds raised by Beauitul Balance Inspirations to go far in each center we support since we have no large oversight of language barriers, special insurances etc., that would be needed if non-native individuals were there doing the work. We are supporting the hopes and dreams of local native founders who have a deep love and burden for their own people to educate them, offer them healthcare opportunities and find ways to increase their financial stability.

     In 2019 we opened one new center in India and had one vision clinic and increased the tutoring of students from 45 to 70. Africa center saw the support of two children from the bush be able to do school for the year. Romania center had special events for their day center school for the poor and did some repairs on their exisiting center.

     Our work in the USA supported educational materials for Common Grounds youth center/coffee house in Saegertown, PA. We also supported the Martin Luther King/21st Century School at Meadville Middle school by volunteering our time and talent to the tutoring and leadership development of the students and student mentors.

     Our local goals for fall 2020 will be to sponsor a local youth writing contest. We plan on hosting youth writing classes at Meadville Public library focusing on the different genres from the contest.

     The world center goals will be to sponsor three students for a full school year in Liberia, Africa. The India center in Delhi, India, has big dreams to open three more tutoring and tailoring centers that will focus on the education, healthcare and microfinance opportunities for very poor women and children. Romania center has dreams to finish all the government required repairs to their buildings and continue strong with service the very poor families in their community.
