JC Dragon’s Heart Europe support for Sanjuro Martial Arts Training Systems:
The Sanjuro Martial Arts training system that JC Dragon’s Heart Europe supports in the UK is concerned with guaranteeing the survival of a very special martial arts class. It is run by Sanjuro for young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) in a deprived part of north London.
They work with children from 6 years old with no upper age limit. The people they work with include: those with Down’s syndrome, Autism, those who are hard of hearing, have visual impairments, or use wheelchairs.
Through a partnership with the local council, whereby they provide half the funding and JC Dragon’s Heart Europe funds the other half, we have ensured that the classes will take place for the full academic year September 2014 – July 2015. This guarantee of funding has allowed Sanjuro to make the class so much more than just about martial arts. Read More
Build A School Project
Jackie’s Build A School for a Dollar Project is well established in China.
We are now bringing the idea to Europe and Africa through our Dragon Kidz project. In addition, we are adding a Build A Dream aspect to the project encouraging children to make friends with other children of different cultures.
We are interested in working with schools to achieve the goal of raising enough money to build a school where under-privileged children are struggling to receive an education. We want to give children the opportunity to learn about their less fortunate peers through getting involved in their own fundraising activities and to build relationships across borders. For further information, contact your country organiser.
JC Dragon’s Heart Europe is delighted to announce our partnership with the Rwandan Orphans Project (ROP).
We feel that by lending our support, we can help to make a real difference to the prospects, and ultimately, future lives, of the children.
The Rwandan Orphans Project (ROP) – Providing basic needs and education for about 100 of Rwanda’s most vulnerable and neglected children. Sean Jones, ROP volunteer says:
‘The children that this project helps include victims of the 1994 Genocide, children who have lost one or both parents to diseases like AIDS or malaria and children who have witnessed a parent being killed from domestic violence. We find these children struggling to survive in the streets of Kigali, washing in sewers, begging on busy streets and often abusing drugs to help alleviate the pangs of hunger.’ Read More
