As mentioned previously, the EU funding for the exchange was not approved this year. So I will be fundraising here in Ireland for the next few months to finance my work in Colombia. As part of my fundraising drive, I will be contacting trade unions and charitable/philantrophic foundations in Ireland, bag-packing in supermarkets and organising other events. However, I will rely particularly on sponsorship from individual friends and supporters through my blog.
Once you donate below (or through the ‘sponsor me’ button) the money will be deposited into a Bank of Ireland account specifically for the exchange funding. All transactions on the account will be completely transparent and verifiable by LASC staff and all donors and supporters.
“I don’t believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is so vertical. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal. It respects the other person. I have a lot to learn from other people.”
