Help the people of Czech #LocateHamza at Masaryk University in Brno

A short summary of MY project

I am raising £1,500 to go to Czech Republic for a 3 week Summer School to further my knowledge in International Relations & Threats to Global Security.

about me

My name is Hamza Kazmi and I am a 4th Year Modern History & International Relations student at the University of Essex. I studied abroad in Canada last year on an exchange program which changed my perspective and has made me eager in developing an international career.


This trip to Czech Republic is a unique opportunity for me to increase my knowledge and further my research in the issues I have studied during my degree. Masaryk University in Brno is a leading institution in this field especially due to the geo-politics of Czech Republic and its role post-WWII.

This project will help prepare me for postgraduate study which would allow me to specialise in security studies and gain insight into working in security policy and protecting the UK against a variety of threats such as international terrorism, espionage, cyber attacks etc.

I have been interested in politics and international relations since I was 14 and this will give me an opportunity to build my network and sharing all the knowledge I will gain with more people who may not go to this summer school. The impact you will have by donating to this project will be increasing the awareness of the threats we face today and help people be politically aware of what is happening across our planet and what we can do to make a difference.


100% of the contributions for this project will be used on the trip to Czech Republic

  • £1,200 approx (1,400 EUR) will be spent on the Tuition Fees for the summer school
  • £60-130 will be used for Return flights to Czech Republic
  • £200 approx will be used for living costs during the summer school


There are some fantastic rewards which you would be able to gain by donating to my project. You can check these out on the right hand side :)

Help me succeed!

You don't need to give money to help me succeed as sharing this page would also be awesome to encourage other people to support and donate!

Every Penny counts so even if its as small as £1, it would make a huge difference and I would really appreciate and value your assistance!
