This proposal is to help bring to life the Semester on the Appalachain, a semester long expedition on the Appalachian Trail for a group of ten participants, in order to provide an environment that can not be replicated in a typical classroom setting. In the proposal, it will provide research on the benefits of experiential and expedition education, improvement on psychological health, and organizations that run similar programs.
For Lionel Naraidu, a retired NYPD police officer born to a poverty-stricken family, “being part of American society,” chartered the saga of his life. Naraidu, a Guyanese immigrant, who is the youngest of 15 children, was raised in blue-collar Queens Village, New York. Embracing, “the values many men and women lost their lives for, like having an education, a home, a decent job, and a good community,” ultimately nurtured his servanthood and patriotism.
A mysterious and strange malady arrives in the small American town of Abida which can be found on an island off the coast of the New England region. The island is somewhat isolated, most political matters are handled locally between it's people, this is due to the islands history. The people of Abida are the final result of successful human amalgamation between slave and owner with many of which who still holds on to their eccentric ancestral beliefs that revolve around "the old ways". This causes many to rarely visit or leave the island and as a consequence Abida is flung into a realm of enigma lying beyond the fringes of the New Englander's conscience. Without the aid of the mainland however, the disease, which is referred to locally as "scourge" takes large sections of

In their royal family, women, Nubian queens, had more than usual control of the kingdom than in other places.

At this time, Amani is safe in his home with his mother Denise Takahashi. Clearly, mother loves Amani and will care for him to the best of her ability. However, this level of care is premised on the services that Amani is currently receiving from several agencies. My major concern is mother’s ability to properly care for Amani when services are reduced or eliminated when he turns 18. Providing proper care for Amani will become increasing difficult as he matures into adulthood.
William Kamkwamba, who was born in a place where hunger and drought were some of their biggest problems, was able to overcome these struggles and create an amazing life for himself and his family. William was a very innovative, intelligent and inspirational child growing up. He never let these issues get in his way or distract him from reaching his goals. He was always interested in science and he was devastated when he had to drop-out of school because of the famine in the area where he lived. Yet, even without going to school William continued to teach himself and create new inventions that ended up changing his life for the better.

In order to build the caring and support section for Amandeep, I would recommend that he spends more time with the people that provide these supports like his mother and girlfriend. Amandeep's strength is perseverance and this was possible because of his mother, so I suggest that he spends more quality time with her. Additionally, I would suggest that he spends more time with his girlfriend as well because he said that she also provides these supports during adversities. On the resiliency quiz the section for high expectations, Amandeep scores low, I believe being around people who do have high expectation of him will increase his resiliency in this aspect. Furthermore, getting more in this area can help build his self-esteem that will allow
Idi Amin ruled Uganda from 1971 to 1979 during that time a lust for power, crippling paranoia, and constant threats to his authority turned Amin into an authoritarian leader who ultimately took the lives of over 300,000 Ugandans. Amin’s quest for power, egoism, and corruption was instrumental in Amin’s creation of the Ugandan state during his rule. Amin used common “state building” techniques such as the social identity theory (SIT) and in/out group hypothesis. Amin used his Ugandan identity and his poor upbringings to connect with the people of Uganda. Amin also vested trust in a small number of advisors that he would confide in completely, those people would become his most important allies. However, this group of advisors ranged from those who would “tell him their honest opinion” to “yes men” who would follow his every
