HELP Amani Go to Europe

 

HELLO..... I was one of 3 students at my school invited to take the European Heritage Trip which allows me to visit 7 different countries: England, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, and Switzerland. This would be an amazing journey not only because I would get to travel out of the U.S., but also because I would be experiencing culture at first hand. I would get the opportunity to talk to locals and learn many cool new things. Once I get to England, I will have the chance to talk to a member from the British Parliament and once in Germany I would be staying with an actual family who live there. I find it crazy to live in a world like ours and to be clueless of what goes on around us. This would be the opportunity of a life time. Not only would I be able to visit these wonderful places, but I would have the chance to meet new people. Also I would be able to get a chance in the real world without parents, earn how to be on my own, and become more self confident in doing things on my own.

Thank you to all of you who are contributing to help me take this opportunity and experience all the benefits it has to offer. No donation is too small! It truly means a lot, as this will be a trip of a lifetime!

About the Program:

Founded in 1956, People to People, is a program that allows students in Middle School and High School travel around the world. This organization was founded my President Dwight D. Eisenhower, along with the top 100 American leaders who joined him.

In 1956, President Eisenhower proposed a peaceful solution for a war-ravaged world. That solution? Give everyday citizens of different countries the opportunity to meet and get to know each other, and the result will be understanding, friendship, and lasting peace.
Out of this vision came the "People to People" movement and the inspiration for People to People Ambassador Programs. Starting with the first traveling delegation in the early 1960s, People to People Ambassador Programs began to break down cultural barriers by providing short-term travel opportunities with the personal, behind-the-scenes access that Eisenhower envisioned.

Today, 50 years later, Eisenhower's vision has transformed to match the needs of our modern world. With increased access to international travel and the Internet, the globe has become a much smaller place. People to People interactions are more important than ever as we learn to co-exist and thrive in a global society.

The goal is simple: Provide students the international experiences to increase their global awareness in a truly global society.
