Help me rebuild my home
Type: Help a person
What we'll do
A tree fell and crushed my house. I would like to repair my house if I can find some help. That would be a dream come true. I don't see how I can do it with my poor salary, which I am not receiving since the virus arrived.
 
 
Details
I work at a school, cleaning before the children come and after class.I built a house on this land and have lived in it for two years. I rent the land. In five or six years I will be allowed to buy it. It was comfortable before a piece of wood fell and crushed a part of it. Life was already hard before the pandemic.

I am a young man. I can work to respond to my needs and my family's needs, but there's no job in my country at this time. I don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but I am a responsible person and I want a better life for me and my family.

I was born on December 3, 1985. I am thirty-five years old. I am married. My wife"s name is Marie Zita Derosiers. We have one child who is twelve months, and my wife is six months pregnant.

Support socially responsible investing for the Alaska Permanent Dividend
Type: Request to a business or organization
What we'll do
Goals of this Proposal:
1. Put together a report on how the fund is used.
2. Create an online petition to gather popular support for the ethical use of the funds.
3. Take additional steps to publicize this issue, such as asking for an appearance on local media (radio stations, etc.) and writing an article for Anchorage Visionary News.
 
 
Details
All Alaskans benefit from the Alaska Permanent Dividend, receiving on average more than $1,000 per person. The fund currently has about $67 billion in assets, much of this invested in the stock market and real estate holdings around the world. Because we benefit from it we are also responsible for how it is used. We should not allow investments in areas with harmful social effects, such as alcohol, tobacco, fast food, gambling, pornography, weapons, contraception and abortion, fossil fuel production or the military.

Support Humane Prisons Everywhere in Anchorage
Type: Jails And Prisons in _
What we'll do
Since this edition of Visionary News is focusing on conflict it would be a good idea to look at local prisons. Crime in Alaska is among the highest in the nation.



I'd like to suggest that you begin very simply by going to http://visionarysociety.org/type/prison/salem, selecting one local prison, and adding yourself as a 'stakeholder.'

There will be a number...
 
 
Details
What is "Humane Prisons Everywhere"?
Prisoners should be treated respectfully at all times. Guards should treat prisoners with personal interest and concern. Prison cells and common areas should be decent places to live. There should be opportunities for learning, art, music and spirituality. Prisons need to be guaranteed safety while there serve their sentences.

Literacy and learning in a Haitian slum
Type: Learn or Teach
What we'll do
Education in Haiti is highly valued, and yet the literacy rate in Haiti is only 60%. Many adults would love to have the opportunity for learning, both the basics and learning about society and life.
We will begin with basic literacy, offered to small groups of adult women with little or no reading ability. We will continue with lessons on Haitian history, basic health care precautions, and resources for further learning and vocational training.
 
 
Details
Our goal is not to form a school, but to create an atmosphere of love around learning. All those who have something to teach, and all those who have a little extra in the way of supplies, can contribute what they wish.
This project will be coordinated by Myriam Dejean and Jean Marcel, both long-time Visionary Society associates.
 
TRAINING
One hour sessions in English or useful skills such as preventative health care, to be offered by video conferencing.
DIRECT SERVICES
Anyone with paper and pencil, notebooks, reading materials, art supplies, etc., can contribute.
FUNDS NEEDED
Amount to raise: 1000

Be my friend in Cite Soleil!
Type: Help a child slave
What we'll do
I’ve had a hard life here in the slum of Cite Soleil, but for the most part I can take care of myself. What I want is a friend — someone who cares about my real situation and wants to learn and exchange letters and videos! I could also use some help in some other areas – Look at the other Invitations on my profile page for that.
 
 
Details
“I see the other kids are going to school, but me I do not go. I never have time to play. I am always busy and tired. I am sleeping under a bed on a carpet. I am so kind, honest. I would like a friend in the whole world to know I am a restavek who would like to go school one day.” Midielande Baltazar

Help create the Folker Park Reflexology Path at Folker Park
Type: Create something new
What we'll do
The walking path will have strategically placed stones designed to stimulate reflexes that correspond to various body systems. The Anchorage Reflexology Path was envisioned by members of the Alaska Reflexology Association (AKRA) as a community space where people can learn about and experience reflexology in a relaxing and healing environment. Folker Park is an intergenerational health and healing park.
 
Click for more
 
Details
What is a Reflexology Path?
A reflexology path is a therapeutic sensory experience. AKRA is planning a fun and relaxing way for the public to learn about and experience a health therapy in a healing environment.

What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is practiced throughout the world as a safe, drug-free, complementary practice within the holistic health field. It is a protocol of manual techniques applied to specific reflex areas primarily on the feet, hands, and ears. The non-invasive techniques are meant to stimulate the neural pathways linking body systems, supporting the body’s efforts to function optimally.

The location at Folker Park was chosen because it is within walking distance of Horizon House, Providence Medical Center, the University of Alaska, and many local businesses and neighborhoods, which will bring diverse populations together to experience and enjoy the path.

AKRA is a member of the national organization Reflexology Association of America(RAA), and this year will host the International Council of Reflexologists conference in Anchorage.

How You Can Help
Help raise $21,000 in cash, donating your time, or provide needed materials.

Volunteer work and donations to the project will unlock matching funds from the Anchorage Park Foundation to complete the project. Supporters are also raising funds for the project. Every dollar contributed will be matched dollar for dollar by the Anchorage Park Foundation through the support of the Rasmuson Foundation!

Experience life in a homeless camp for one or two hours
Type: Learn or Teach
What we'll do
We'll visit the homeless camp downtown near the riverfront. Several long time residents there have agreed to share their experiences there and show us what life is really like for them. Reading about the issue or passing it on the street is one thing. Hearing it directly from the source is something else.

We’ll discuss what happens when police conduct their routine sweep or purges. Shopping carts, sleeping bags and tents are lost, and they are back to square one. And we’ll have time anything else residents would like to say or you would like to know.

The average person doesn’t understand what it is really like to live in a homeless camp. See the reality of it!

Support an orphanage in Port-au-Prince Haiti
Type: Support a business or organization
What we'll do
The Tysea Orphanage in Port-au-Prince, Haiti is a small house with 34 children. Because of the virus and the overall situation in Haiti we are not able to feed them or provide basic necessities. The children are very poor. They eat little. We cannot let these children go back on the street.
 
 
Details
The orphanage has 34 children. 18 of them stay permanently and the others come to eat and then return to their relatives, because there isn't enough space to lodge them. We have a nurse, a psychologist, someone to cook, someone to wash. There are 8 people working as volunteers. None of them receives a salary. There are 3 people who are working full-time, and for them we are sometimes able to provide meals. In Haiti there is misery, poverty. When they get food they eat. They receive a minimal amount in donations.
 
TRAINING
Teach English for one hour. One-on-one video conversation with a child in the orphanage. Marcel will facilitate this.

Does someone have basic knowledge of health for children? We’d love to offer a couple of simple, interactive Zoom or Skype lessons. We’ll provide the translator!
DIRECT SERVICES
Share stories about how a grassroots orphanage can work. We will provide short video clips about the orphanage and the children’s lives regularly.
We are also looking for small gifts for the children. Once in a while, especially on their birthdays, it would be great to give them something simple!
CONTACT ORGANIZATIONS
Contact non-profit organizations in Port-au-Prince, Haiti to see if they can provide additional help with food and medical care. Simply organizing a few people to write letters to them could be a big help!

Visionary learning center and community hub
Type: Create something new
What we'll do
Let’s create a new kind of learning center that is open to everyone. The conventional style of education is narrow and shallow, based on passing down knowledge of authority figures. It is learning for information, for distraction, or to earn money or get a job.
 
 
Details
Undertake your education as a monastic vow to grasp your higher nature and a path towareds achieving it. Learning pathway is what we used to call education. In this age of specialization education for wholeness or rounded personality development is of ever greater importance.
Visionary learning is a dynamic, responsive community in which the people undertake the tasks that matter. We need the mental fortitude to approach any question, explore it, plumb its depths and find a resolution. We need to find out what is good about ourselves and begin to envision a more visionary community. If nothing else, these forums could begin to heal our own psychological damage.

What does an ‘educated’ person need to know?
→ The perennial questions, about appearance, desire, loss, envy…
→ Become dissatisfied with what you are, not what you have.
→ Ascertain the real movement of the spirit within you. Become sensitive to the reality and will other people.
→ Learn to deal with passion, envy, greed, narcissism. Know how to respond to ignorance and evil. Appreciate silence and solitude. Learn how to remember, and how to listen. Learn to negotiate between matter and spirit, between necessity and freedom.

Possible features
→ City-wide learning, open to all at low or no cost.
→ ‘Celebration of the good.’ Informal readings or performances of anything that makes you think, reaches your heart, or lifts your spirit. It is an experiment in a new way to pass the time on weekend evenings.
→ Users can select any topic. The public will find those who with experience who are able to become a guide.
→ Movie theater with great movies and other features such as discussion.
→ Develop other learning forums such as public gatherings, festivals, conferences, and seminars that cultivate and celebrate our emerging wisdom.

Support Beyond Borders in ending child slavery
Type: End child slavery
What we'll do
To create the kind of social change needed to end child slavery permanently in Haiti, we’re addressing the conditions that perpetuate this system – extreme poverty and social acceptance of child slavery. Our goal is to help people to change their attitudes and beliefs about restavèk, and to take action in their communities to stop it.
 
Organization: Beyond Borders
 
Details
Child Rights Training
Each year, more than 1,000 women and men in Haiti graduate from our Child Rights Training. Using an interactive, dialogue-based curriculum developed in Haiti called Education is a Conversation (ESK), a group of 12-15 neighbors spend six-months meeting weekly to discuss topics like corporal punishment, sexual abuse, and child slavery. In this transformative exploration, participants learn about the rights of children, the dangers of sending their children away, how to raise awareness among family, friends, and neighbors, and how to create public accountability to protect and defend the rights of children. Upon completion, participants become Child Rights Activists in their neighborhoods.

Child Protection Brigades
After neighbors graduate from Child Rights Training, these new Child Rights Activists come together to create volunteer, neighborhood Child Protection Brigades that are the first-line of defence for vulnerable children in their neighborhoods.

Adult Survivor Network
We’re convening more than 500 adult survivors in peer dialogue groups, with the goal to help them overcome the stigma associated with those who’ve lived through child slavery and organize themselves to speak out against the practice. Members have launched an advocacy effort to empower fellow adult survivors to find their voice and play a leading role in ending child slavery.

Install a water purification system in Cite Soleil
Type: Build something
What we'll do
The neighborhood of Fequier in Cite Soleil has poor access to safe water. We would like to install a bio-sand filter provided by the organization Clean Water for Haiti.
 
 
Details
The 100 inhabitants of Fequier have to walk a mile to get water from a private company and then typically carries it back in containers on their heads. They must pay about 5 cents for each bucket.

Support a Pledge

Help me ask Anchorage soldiers to be more thoughtful
Type: Support a Pledge
Pledge: Fight for the good

What we'll do
I would like to talk with Alaska soldiers about becoming thoughtful about their actions, including exploring the views of the opposing side and the effects of their actions on the population.

My goal for this Proposal: Reach25% of the soldiers in local military bases, through both direct engagement and various forms of advertising. I hope that at least ten soldiers will agree to participate in the pledge. Will you help? We can do this together!
 
 
Details
Anchorage has a large military presence, with soldiers coming from all over the country. There are more than 10,000 active duty and reserve soldiers in Anchorage, at Fort Richards, an Army Base, and Elmendorf Airforce Base (at JBER, the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson).
Large-scale organized conflict depends on people doing what they are told – the whole series of choices made by politicians, military officials, and the electorate. But there is always a place for the intelligence and conflict of the individual. Everyone has a right and a responsibility to think.

Pledge elements:
→ Understand the causes of the conflict and the suffering, grievances and needs of all sides.
→ Take responsibility for your actions as a soldier
→ Accept costs to oneself. Be willing to sacrifice.
→ Be sensitive to your own humanity and the humanity of your opponents.
→ There is a standard higher than national victory

In addition to this, I’d like to be part of Profound Peace, including presenting Topics and joining public discussions on how to think about deep ways to address the conflicts we are in.

Clean back country land with help of homeless people
Type: Create something new
What we'll do
As a person who regularly uses Salem’s off-road trails, I envision a program that would rid Oregon’s sensitive back country land of garbage, while creating jobs that are filled in part by people who have been homeless.
 
 
Details
"Advent of the Wilderness Technician"
The Coordinator should contact private and government agencies to develop revenue streams that can cover the cost of operation. This includes two full-time salaried positions, and the position of the coordinator, who works with various officials to develop and implement strategies necessary to launch and maintain program. In addition, the program requires the use of a small pickup truck and trailer, and the quad vehicles which will be used in the performance of duties. The coordinator targets areas of garbage accumulation and directs crews to areas needing work.
