Boosting Student Morale And Making A Positive Change!

in youarehope •  11 months ago


There is something to be said about young people that already have the hunger and drive to make a positive change in the world. Some of us come to be involved with the community because of circumstance, or because it’s an ingrained part of our country’s culture, or because we have lived long enough and seen enough that we feel we need to do something more than take care of our own needs…, to at least make a little difference within our area of influence and control. Yet others, like the user @ikasumanera, show us that it only takes passion and perseverance to transform our environment. Cause when you have those two, it’s only a matter of time before other people catch on your enthusiasm and join the effort!

This is exactly what has happened in this case.


@ikasumanera, a Technology Sciences student in the Lisandro Alvarado Central University (UCLA for its name in Spanish), in Barquisimeto City-Venezuela, has seen how the student body in his university is going through hard times, where the morale and drive is winding down and making it difficult to maintain good retention and engagement levels. He has identified three areas where he feels he can make an impact to the whole student community, and have already gotten a headway in implementing these initiatives, with the help of students and teachers of his university, and the coaching of the @reveur team.

Below, some details of the areas where @ikasumanera has been concentrating his efforts, with updates on what is ongoing and where he needs our support:


Regularly provide breakfasts to the students (for many of them, the first and only meal while at university) More than 700 breakfasts have been distributed to date over the course of the past 2 weeks. Isaac has received food donations from ex-alumni, and the cafeteria personnel have donated their time to help him. A weekly amount of 15 sbd is deemed sufficient to keep this initiative going (buying in bulk would make this more cost-effective). Internal University fundraisers will continue to occur to ensure sustainability.

Phase 1:

Restore the “O2” Module - used as a student hub for meetings and organizing extra-curricular activities. Around 50 students will be able to actively use this module to plan extra-curricular activities , and these will impact all students, teachers and maintenance personnel in the Faculty (600-800 people). The module needs cleaning and a painting job. With 6 posts in Steemit and further economic support from the @reveur project, Isaac has purchased the paints required. The students have contributed with the rest of the supplies required (brushes, buckets, etc.) and will be helping Isaac with the labor. With some leftover funds they plan to take care of some water leaks in the ceiling. Ika hopes to have this job completed by end of next week.

Phase 2:

Restore and repair leaks in the “O” Module - also used as a student hub for meetings and organizing extra-curricular activities. Module 0 also needs painting and a large water leak needs to be corrected. This phase is just starting to raise funds. An estimated 50 SBD will make this possible.

@ikasumanera has bigger plans for his Faculty, and will continue to bring us updates and new phases for this project.


@youarehope will donate 50 SBD to kick-start the phase 2 of the project and counts on your support to help us achieve its total completion.
