Believe in Yourself & Kickstart the World
Ljubljana (Slovenia), 28. september 2006
Benka Pulko presented to the public her new international humanitarian project 'Believe in Yourself & Kickstart the World'. It's sole goal is to help educate the children of the world. She believes helping children with education is the best way to ensure this world becomes a safe home to independent adults willing to support themselves.

In the first step, Benka Pulko, the author of the idea and founder of the project, has been raising funds to cover the education of Tibetan girls in exile. The second goal will be the organization of financial help for Slovene elementary school children who fall into the lower socio-economic levels.

Believe in Yourself & Kickstart the World is a charitable project comprised of people making a difference because they can. It would like to help directly those who are in need, with no mediators, big humanitarian bodies, or multi-national organizations. Being in favor of direct, firsthand aid distribution, this project offers complete access to all information on why, how and whom it is helping. This transparency is a trademark the organization will proudly stand by.

The short-term goal is to create an opportunity for a formal education for the largest number of children possible. There shall be no room for neglect of this issue. The long-term aims are to eradicate illiteracy by increasing educational opportunities, and to ensure students receive the tools they need to become contributing members of society.

Benka chose to work with Tibetan Children’s Village (TCV) in Dharamsala, India, after she visited there as part of her world trip and became familiar with the needs of children in exile. Four decades ago TCV was just a kindergarten, initiated by His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama, and later directed by HH's sister Jetsun Pema. Today TCV is an enormous, multi-campus educational facility, sheltering and teaching over 15,000 children.

Anyone can join the campaign and we encourage you to contribute accordingly. Find more information about the project here.
