Short Summary

Hello, my name is Mario Prada. I am the Spanish lecturer for a group of 20 students at the University of Namibia.

Together with my wife, Cristina L. Prada, the coordinator of this project, and the other Spanish lecturer in Namibia, Jesús Lasso, we are fundraising to enable our Spanish students to visit Spain and apply the language they have been learning over the past few years in a 12-day trip.

Due to the economic circumstances affecting Namibia, one of the countries with the highest economic inequalities in the world, this journey would be a dream for many. However, as the limit is only imagination, we hope to achieve it with the help of everyone.

You can visit our website: "Yo Me Voy Pa' España" to delve deeper into this project, as well as the social media platforms managed by our students:

What We Need

We will require around 1000 euros per student to cover the cost of airfare, transportation within Spain, accommodation, and meals.

To achieve this, we have been participating in markets in Windhoek for months, selling Spanish food and drinks such as empanadas, Spanish tortilla and sangría. Additionally, we have been organizing trivia nights related to Hispanic and Namibian culture, where we collect 2 euros from each participant. We are also selling raffle tickets with prizes provided by some businesses in Windhoek.

Despite all our efforts, the possibility of raising the necessary budget through these channels is slim. Therefore, we have decided to make this project known so that anyone who understands how important it can be for our Spanish students in Africa to undertake this study trip to Spain can contribute directly.

If we don't manage to raise enough money, we would use it to organize a trip of similar duration within Namibia. However, the cultural component of the native Spanish speakers would be challenging to provide in this alternative scenario.

The Impact

The importance of carrying out this project is crucial for the students involved in it. The time, energy, and effort they have dedicated must materialize in the realization of this study trip. The lives and potential of our students could positively change by being exposed to such a diverse environment at such a young age.

For the majority of our Spanish students, with an average age of 20, undertaking this journey on their own would be unattainable. Hopefully, with the contribution, empathy, and assistance of everyone, we can make this beautiful dream come true.

Risks & Challenges

The main risk would be the absence of funds. However, if the entire budget is raised within the specified timeframe, we would have the necessary time to manage the students' visas from the Embassy of Spain in Namibia and finalize the purchase of plane tickets.

Other Ways You Can Help

If you are unable to contribute financially, it would also be great support for us if you could help spread the word about this initiative among your loved ones. Perhaps they might be able to support us directly. Thank you very much!
