Help With Training As An Arts Counsellor

Dear Friends

I am appealing to your generosity, as we are trying help Michelle Rodrigues raise funds to help her with the cost of college fees for further education.

Michelle had to give up her previous employment as she suffers from a long-term health condition. She is attending a School of Art & Therapy to qualify as a Transpersonal Arts Counsellor and was prompted to start this course to retrain for work as she feels that she is well suited to gain employment as a counsellor. Personal details about Michelle are available on this video:

Unfortunately, Michelle does not qualify for any government grants and therefore, has taken the initiative to raise funds through “GoFundMe”. If you wish to make a donation, the link can be accessed at:

Alternatively, donors who are taxpayers may wish to consider channelling their donations through the charity:
Goan Welfare Society UK
HSBC Bank, Sort Code: 40-22-30 Account No. 01435981

(Reference: Michelle). Please email us for an acknowledgement

Cash or cheque donations may be handed to any Trustee of the GWS (Flavio Gracias, Paul De Mendonca, Norma Menezes-Rahim, Alfred Rebello & Rosy De Souza). You can also make donations by “PayPal” through our website:;

May I convey my sincere thanks for your support and our best wishes to all for a peaceful Christmas season but please do take care, given the rising rate of Covid-19 infections.

God bless & keep safe
