    INTRODUCTION

    No African Team has ever won the Soccer World Cup and it is not always because of lack of talent.

    With one voice Africa is saying that this year must be different. The Soccer World Cup must come to Africa and the African team that wins the World Cup for Africa will receive the totality of the money collected through the “AFRICA WINS” Crowdfunding.

    WHAT IS “AFRICA WINS” CROWDFUNDING?

    “AFRICA WINS” is a social movement to help raise 50 Million Dollars to support Africa to win the Soccer World Cup 2018. It is launched on June 13th 2018 by Mivasocial, the African Social Network in partnership with MivaFunding, the African Crowdfunding platform, African Sport celebrities and other African celebrities and businesses. It is planned to be the largest ever soccer crowdfunding for Africa.

    OBJECTIVES OF “AFRICA WINS” CROWDFUNDING

    Africa Wins aims to encourage the 5 African teams participating in the World Cup tournament to give beyond their best and also to show the players that they have an entire continent and more supporting them. We all hope that this show of unhinged support will push the players to win the World Cup for Africa.

    THE RULES OF “AFRICA WINS” CROWDFUNDING

    • All money raised will be disbursed to the winning African team and to build a soccer training center and hospital in Africa.
    • In the event that Africa still fails to win, the team that has advanced the most in the World cup competition will receive half of the money and the other half will be disbursed to an African charity or organisation chosen by that team in order to build a good Soccer school and a Hospital in Africa.
    • This is a risk free fundraiser. If the total funds raised is not greater than 1 Million U.S. Dollar, each donor will be reimbursed their donation and no money will be disbursed to the players or winning African..
    • All money must be disbursed as soon as possible at the end of the fundraiser and no later than 6 months after the Soccer World Cup 2018 has ended

    Hello, my name is Thato Mokhothu. I am a 23-year-old woman from Lesotho, and I need your help. Please help me fundraise my way to my graduate studies.

    I graduated in June 2017 with a bachelor of sciences degree in Cognitive Psychology and Neuroscience from Jacobs University Bremen in Germany. I graduated with a GPA of 1.60 out of 5.00 (where 1.00 is the best and 5.00 is the worst). In this school, I held various Teaching Assistant positions and at the same time managed to be an active member of the student body. I lead sports teams such as the Women’s Tug of War team for my residential college; I was president of the African Heritage Society in my second year and a performer in music bands for various campus events (including two graduation ceremonies). I was also selected Student of the Year 2017 in my residence for my devotion and service to student life and wellness.

    I am passionate about neuroscience and the value it can bring to the health gaps in my country. Lesotho lacks the necessary education and expertise in neuroscience and neurology diagnostics and research, yet it faces numerous challenges with conditions such as schizophrenia, epilepsy and depression which run rampant especially among children and youth countrywide. Patients are frequently referred to specialists in South Africa for these. My ambition is to help develop the mental health sector of Lesotho by establishing a neuroscience research hub in my city, Maseru as well as to use research to understand and address the mental health problems of our continent. Currently, there are no institutions offering this course in my country or even in neighbouring countries, and this lack of knowledge is proving detrimental to the treatment of people who need help in this area. My mandate will be to return home with a skill that is much needed and to propagate it through education and awareness building and to ensure that the research we undertake is informative to people at the grassroots level.

    When I graduated from Jacobs, I was already accepted into the UK’s best ranked Neuroscience Masters programs for entry in 2017. I had admissions from institutions such as Kings College London, Sussex University, Sheffield University, Newcastle University, Swansea University, University of Glasgow and the University College London. After careful thought, my top choice university became the University of Glasgow. Unfortunately, I did not receive funding from the Glasgow (Or any of the other schools that had admitted me) and was not able to enroll in the fall of 2017. I, therefore, deferred my enrollment to 2018 to enable me to have more time to apply for scholarships that would allow me to achieve my dream of pursuing a further degree. For about a month since June, this platform was dedicated to raising funds to go to University of Glasgow with a target amount of $33200, however, last week (Week of 20th July) I received an offer of admission from the Free University of Berlin for the Masters program in Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (SCAN). I got very excited by this because it offers amazing quality of education with a lesser price tag. The costs are € 310 ($361) per semester (which I can afford), but the embassy requires proof of financial means to last 1 year to the value of € 8 700 ($10 120). This fundraiser is from now on dedicated to raising living expenses for Freie Universistät Berlin as it is more affordable and has a later starting date (thus hopefully giving it a better chance of being a successful campaign).

    My family does not have the means to fund my education. We have one breadwinner that is currently supporting my sister through high school on loans, and throughout the year, I have had to work to help out with other needs in the household. My undergraduate degree itself was funded through a scholarship, and without it, I would not have been able to attend tertiary school. I have made numerous scholarship applications, some were external international funding programs, and others were school-based, but I have been unfortunate in this area hence my plea to have your support this time to help me further my education through a master’s program. The only education agency in the country (National Manpower Development Secretariat) has refused to assist me on the basis that they have no relationship with the German government. I am not discouraged in my journey though, because I believe in the good of people and I am convinced that with your support, I will make my target and finally go to school this year. Please donate any amount that you can to my campaign and help me spread the word to reach more people. Every bit helps.

    At the moment, I have been able to save $ 4126 on my own and I need $6 880 more to make a total of $ 11 006 (This amount includes living expenses, flights and visas) in order to have the right amount to show to the embassy. Thank you in advance for your donations, for sharing my story with your world and taking me closer to my dreams.

    I am also open to receiving loans of any amount from individuals and companies and working out the conditions in the case where you are unable to donate.

    Please feel free to contact in case you have any questions. I am available on the following platforms:

    This is Brenda’s story as told by her. She lost her father a few years back and has 4 siblings. She is the 3rd born. Her eldest sister did not attend school and her elder brother stopped in P.7. She is very interested in studying but her sick mother does not have the means to pay her school fees. Any effort towards supporting Brenda will be much appreciated. Let’s put our hands together.

    ”I am Brenda N. Promise aged 13. I completed P.7 in 2017 at Ttula Primary school. English was my best subject. I started my education from St. Claver Primary School. In primary three I took the second position in class but when I was promoted to Primary Four, the first term seemed a little difficult for me. However, things got better when I showed more determination in second term. I later changed the school and was taken to Ttula Primary School in Primary Five. I feared there were many pupils who were bright but I was surprised when I was the best in the three subjects (English, Social Studies and Science). The teacher told me to add more effort in Maths so that I succeed in all subjects. I tried my best in second term and the teacher was very proud of me. In third term I was the 5th out of 35 pupils and was promoted to Primary 6. Primary 6 was not difficult for me and I performed very well. When I was promoted to Primary 7 I was very happy but I found Math and Science very difficult. The teacher used to tell me that ‘If you do not love the teacher you cannot pass the subject’ so when I tried to listen to what I was told, [I managed to sit for the Primary Leaving Exams].

    My mother had no money but she tried hard to pay my school fees. But now she is sick and does not have energy to work a lot. She wanted me to study and she took me to Freedom High School in this term but I have not completed it because she was sick and could not raise the money.”

    Mon rêve de voir valoriser le travail des pauvres paysans de mon pays le Togo grâce à l’installation d’une unité agro-industrielle de transformation des matières premières locales (surplus de production annuelle d’environ 70%) en boissons et aliments 100% naturels est en train de s’écrouler faute d’argent pour achever notre atelier de production!

    Celà fait presque 3 ans que je travaille pour que les milliers de tonnes des productions agricoles qui sont gaspillés (surplus de production annuelle d’environ 70%) chaque année faute de moyens de conservation aux yeux des pauvres paysans de mon pays le Togo, soient transformés en produits finis sains, pour etre revendus et consommer la population locale.

    Grace a la bonne volonté des ami-es et du financement de la Région Aquitaine, nous avons pu acquérir quelques matériels de production et un camion fourgonnette pour le transport des matières premières des champs versle lieu de production et aussi des produits finis vers les marchés.

    Ce projet permettra de limiter les pertes post récoltes, une création de valeur ajoutée pour une meilleure valorisation des efforts des agriculteurs producteurs locaux et aussi une création des emplois en bref l’amélioration du niveau de vie de la population.

    Notre projet a beaucoup avancé aujourd’hui, avec quelques matériels achetés, la construction de l’atelier de production démarrée, la réalisation des packagings sous notre propre marque ” Vitaléo Premium “. Malheureusement nous sommes confrontés au manque de fonds pour achever notre atelier de transformation et aussi les fonds de roulement nécessaires au lancement des produits sur le marché .

    C’est pourquoi nous nous tournons vers vous pour bénéficier de votre soutien pour que ce projet tant rêvé devient enfin une réalité au profit de la population.
