generate part time jobs for teenagers
Teenagers are struggling a lot to make their dreams came true. Most of the time there is a conflict between children and their families to choose a path for making their dreams came true. They need money to live their life to their fullest but their parents feel burned to fulfill all what they want. In our country there is a great need to generate part time jobs for teenagers so that they can raise funds for their daily expenses and for pursuing their higher studies for completing their aim. If part time jobs are generated on large scale in our economy then teenagers may feel secure regarding their future as they will be having something in their pocket to spend in the time of crisis or whenever they want without giving pressure to their parents . I request you all to sign this petition. Thanks

Protect Indian Start Ups Against Foreign Capital Dumping
MAKE IN INDIA BY PROTECTING INDIAN START UPS.While Indian entrepreneurs work hard to start innovative companies, the lack of gut in our protectionist policies is harming them. The Govt of India, and the Courts must make it a priority to protect Indian start ups from capital dumping by foreign companies. If not, our companies will be victims of hostile take overs or bankruptcies very soon. Do we want our consumer Internet space to be largely controlled by foreign corporations? India is so busy begging for foreign investment that very few have noticed how it's demeanour is affecting local companies who are being true to the vision of Make in India. Today, it's easier for a foreign business leader to get an appointment with our policymakers than it is for local business leaders. Why? Is Indian money not as good as foreign money? Over the past few months, the valuations of Indian born companies like Ola and Snapdeal have been struck down by firms like Softbank and Morgan Stanley. Although companies like Ola and Snapdeal have attracted handsome investments from VC's, it is true that they don't stand a chance against the deep pockets of firms like Amazon, Uber, and Airbnb who will stop at nothing to conquer the Indian market. Fact: Amazon plans to "invest" $3 billion to capture India's market, where as the incumbent Indian Govt's fund for start ups is worth only $1.5 billion. These numbers tell a chilling story for those aspiring entrepreneurs who hope to leave an impression on India's consumer Internet landscape. China has Baidu (it's own Google), DiDi (it's own Uber), and Alibaba (it's own Amazon), and all of these are local homegrown businesses that today are healthy competition to foreign companies. The reason China was able to build these colossal companies is because of focused protectionist policies that put China First. Americans put America first. It's time we put India First. There is an overlooked and significant difference between Foreign Investment and Foreign Capital Dumping. Foreign Investments focus around the idea of progress and prosperity, while Foreign Capital Dumping focus on the ideas monopolization, destruction of local industries, and the conquest of budding third world markets. While it's important for India to attract Foreign Investment, our policymakers must carefully monitor the consequences to Indian businesses and make sure to differentiate Foreign Investment from Foreign Capital Dumping. Certainly there are cases where in protectionist policies can be misused and lead to a lack of innovation. However, there are a large number of truly Indian companies who are trying their very best to stay afloat in this aggressive environment of foreign capital dumping. The Govt and our Courts must protect them. The most crucial step to the organic development of a third world country is the protection of start ups and SME's. The Indian Govt, and the Courts must make it a priority to protect Indian start ups from capital dumping by foreign companies. If this foreign capital dumping continues, local Indian companies could be the victims of hostile take overs from foreign corporations, making us and our economy slaves to foreigners all over again. Join us in our call for policymakers to protect Indian businesses from foreign capital dumping. Let's put India First. #saveindianstartups
Petition to Theresa May MP
Introduce free tampons and sanitary products
Tampons and sanitary products are essentials for most people who experience menstruation every single month but we still have no other option but to pay for them, it might not seem like much but for someone who doesn't have much money or any at all - it all adds up. From a health clinic you are able to pick up contraception including condoms, FOR FREE, yet you are not able to find free sanitary products for when it is your time of the month. The main aim of this campaign is to open people's eye's and realise that tampons and sanitary products are a basic human right which everyone who has periods should be entitled to at no cost but the people who will benefit most from this campaign are the people on a low income and the homeless. As we face another £12 billion worth of austerity cuts to the poorest in society I really think this is another valid reason to push this campaign forward. As well as health clinics I also agree that tampons and sanitary towels should also be made available in food banks or any readily accessible place for people who really struggle financially. There's not a specific place where I think they have to be available as long as they are available somewhere which is easily accessible for anyone who needs them. Please share and spread the word. #TamponsShouldBeFree
Petition to PayPal, Daniel Schulman, Bank of Tanzania (BOT)
Make Tanzanians receive funds with PayPal
In 2014 I planned to visit Mikumi National Park; an absolutely beautiful wildlife conservation. To achieve that I prepared for fundraising, by offering (Swahili - English) translation services on Elance, and also selling handmade traditional ornaments on eBay. I knew that a PayPal account was necessary, good thing I already had an account which I entirely used for purchases. But it didn’t take long to realize that a Tanzanian PayPal account can only send but cannot receive money! So, I decided to contact PayPal desperately hoping to get some help, even if it meant paying extra fees, I was willing to. It has been almost 3 years ever since I started requesting but PayPal has not yet granted the solution. They won’t disclose why Tanzanian PayPal accounts won’t receive money but kept on suggesting that I should ask buyers to use alternative payment methods like money orders, checks, bank wires transfers, etc. Honestly, that's easier said than done because popular sites like eBay prefer PayPal EXCLUSIVELY and impose restrictions from using the alternative payment methods. The moment seller suggests alternative payment methods; s/he is automatically infringing site’s rules despite the fact that such a suggestion is itself a deal breaker for most buyers and employers on freelancing sites. I bet PayPal realizes that Tanzanian dwellers cannot sell any goods on popular shopping site like Amazon or eBay; thousands of unemployed graduates and experts cannot freelance on popular freelancing sites like Upwork, Elance, etc; domestic charity organizations cannot launch international campaigns to let millions of Diasporas and foreigners donate to a passionate course or aid. This is a lot of day-to-day missed opportunity that any person living in Tanzania is locked out of access. When will residents of Tanzania be allowed to earn online? It is well known that Swahili is Tanzania’s native language. The majority of Tanzanians can translate English to Swahili and the vice versa in a heartbeat. These are the people who are qualified to do online translations. Tanzania has a lot of rare precious resources (like Tanzanite) that you won’t find anywhere else in the world, and Tanzanians have traditional industries that are ready to sell to the whole world. Many entrepreneurs lack seed capital for piloting their ideas. If entrepreneurs are given a chance to earn online they will surely work, save and bootstrap their startups. Sadly we have little to no access to the above opportunities because the world’s gigantic online payment processor i.e. PayPal won’t let us get paid. If such economic barriers aren’t upheld then it must be difficult for organizations or campaigns that are trying to convince youth not to leave their countries for abroad, because nobody will want to stay in his/her country if jobs are hard to find. I believe PayPal has a role to play here by unlocking all its features hence creating job opportunities for residents of Tanzania. Tanzania has 50+ banks, 4 major mobile money services (M-Pesa included) which can act as PayPal funds withdrawal agents if Tanzanian PayPal accounts are authorized to receive money. Please support this petition to pursue PayPal to unlock its ‘receive money’ feature for Tanzanian PayPal accounts. You and I will help create 1000+ jobs locally. Thank you! Note: Please excuse my grammar, I am still learning English.

Last Bank Standing. Don't let communities lose their only Bank
Banks across the country are rapidly reducing their branch network leaving many communities without any form of banking provision. This is having a huge impact on the vulnerable and mobility impaired, the business community who need to bank their takings regularly, and visitors to the UK who need access to cash. Glastonbury is one of the major sites of pilgrimage in the UK, attracting more than 750,000 visitors a year. In April 2016 it will have no banks left at all. The town of Glastonbury requests that Somerset County Council and the Government debate the importance of towns across Britain retaining at least one Bank branch so the business, residential and visitor communities can maintain the ability to carry out essential transactions.
Petition to Michael Gove, Sadiq Khan
Say No to Toxic Cruise Port in London
Michael Gove has pledged to take action on diesel fumes on the roads. Now we believe it's time to do the same for much dirtier diesel fuel on the river as a new cruise liner port is about to be built near the O2. Just one medium sized cruise ship moored at the Greenwich site by Enderby Wharf (now called 'Maritime View'), will consume about 700 litres of diesel per hour. That's the same as having 688 heavy lorries with their engines idling - spewing out toxic fumes near homes and schools. Experts claim that pollution leads to 10,000 premature deaths in the UK every year causing all manner of problems: permanent lung damage in children issues with dementia and cognition untold suffering for people with asthma Cruise ships have a terrible record for pollution and emission control, which is why Mr Gove must introduce measures so that: the cruise ships plug into a ship to shore power supply or we abandon the port completely. Onshore power is the common sense solution. It's worked in the Port of Los Angeles where the port serves 43 miles of coastline. It could also work at Enderby Wharf which is infinitely smaller by comparison. This petition was started as a cry for help when Greenwich Council forced through planning permission for Enderby Wharf, despite vehement protestations from locals and environmental groups. The decision was challenged in the High Court, but the case was lost because there are no laws to protect people living near the river. The Mayor of London has promised to help but has discovered he has no powers over river traffic. The terminal could bring in tourist dollars, granted, but if peoples' health suffers as a direct result – which it undoubtedly will without onshore power – it defies all logic. When planning permission was sought for the development most of us were ignorant about the effects of pollution. Now we have the facts at our disposal there is NO EXCUSE. We’re not a bunch of tree hugging activists with nothing better to do. We are ordinary people concerned about the long term health of children, family and friends whose health will suffer if this goes ahead. Not just here but at ports everywhere, like Southampton, where cruise ships contribute up to 23 per cent of the city's air pollution. Enderby Wharf is up for sale. Whoever buys it needs to know that unless they install an onshore power supply, the terminal is pure poison. Yes, there will be an extra price tag attached. But compared to the human cost, and the burden it will invariably place on the NHS, it’s well worth it. Ultimately, if we can't facilitate a ship to shore power supply at Enderby, then we might as well abandon the port altogether. The EU has a directive that says that all ports must provide onshore power by 2025. If, as Mr Gove believes, we’ll be better off and greener outside the EU, now is the ideal opportunity to prove it.
Petition to Minister Eoghan Murphy, Joe MacGrath
Finish Glencree, Newport, Tipperary
https://goo.gl/maps/EKmLeLog2Aq Residents in Glencree Newport are left angry and frustrated due to unfinished Estate. Glencree housing estate was originally built in 2003 where the majority of properties were sold off-plan. Such plans portrayed an idyllic setting displaying manicured green spaces, driveways, roads and street lighting. Plans to include 18 townhouses and a state of the art crèche at the entrance to the estate have never materialised. For those residents who have purchased homes, their reality is an entirely different picture. A number of residents have young families and said that it is fast becoming a nightmare scenario. To date there has been no satisfactory action taken by Singland Homes Ltd., to finish the Glencree Estate. Residents are appealing to Eoghan Murphy, T.D. Minister for Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government to take action as the appalling, unfinished condition of the housing estate is putting lives at risk and hampering the social development of the local community. One resident described it as an absolute eyesore and is affecting normal daily living for young families. Another described the metal fencing surrounding the housing estate as unsightly and unacceptable. Residents are infuriated by the dilapidated Porto cabins, unused building materials and an out-building which remain inside the fencing. Many expressed concern that the footpath surfaces to the main Newport to Thurles road are unfinished and hazardous, forcing people off the paths onto the main road, particularly during heavy rainfall. Residents explained that traffic coming from the Thurles direction is immediately met with what now looks like a run-down estate and are outraged by the fact that their homes are becoming inequitable and say this is having a serious effect on their lives. Residents have been let-down by local T.D.s and Counsellors and feel strongly that Tipperary County Council and politicians have failed them. Residents are seeking support from local business owners and the local community as the unfinished entrance devalues the locality of Newport and not just the estate of Glencree. Residents are now appealing to Minister Eoghan Murphy, to take swift action. They are demanding that their quality of life is restored and say that this is not what they bought into and is not what they envisaged for their family lives in Glencree 14 years later. It has also come to our attention that the developer is planning on building in Limerick in the near future after leaving us in an unfinished estate!!! Please sign and share our petition and help give us a voice. This petition is run independently of Glencree Residents Association
Petition to Southfields Triangle Residents' Association
Save Sunny News from being closed
Sunny News is facing closure because new planning laws, designed to regenerate disused business premises, now allow his Landlord to change the use of the building from retail to residential. The legislation was never intended to be used in this way. Last year Wandsworth Council's planning committee unanimously opposed the Landlord's plans, as did 430 local residents. Now the Government's Planning Inspectorate has overturned that decision and granted permission. We are calling on Wandsworth Council to seek a statutory review and challenge this decision as otherwise this vibrant, vital local shop will be forced to close and our community will be changed, for the worse, forever. Please sign this petition and forward it on to your contacts so that we can help Save Sunny News.
