Please continue to share.  If everyone does a little, no one has to do a lot.


We have been working hard to raise the funds to ensure our Global Exposure trip this year, April 17 - 27, to Brazil.

This year we were unable to get the foundation support we have relied on, therefore in spite of all of our fundraising efforts we are a little short in covering our trip to Brazil.

The Learning Tree has a "Global Exposure Program" that each year takes a group of inner city youth abroad for 10-12 days.  This program compliments a child's formal education in important and exciting ways.  the students broaden their views by being immersed in another culture, they learn tolerance, maturity, leadership and that they are an integral part of a global society.

They heighten their sense of service and community awareness.  The students return ready to make stronger educational and career choices.  This valuable experience has life-long benefits.

The planned trip to Brazil will take us to Bahia Salavador, Manaus and Rio de Janeiro.  The students will have an opportunity to visit a Quilombo (to meet with an indigenous community), The Amazon (to learn about bio-diversity).  The Iguacu Waterfall (in Argentina) and the rich art form and architecture of Rio de Janeiro.  

We still need to raise an additional $1,500.  No amount is too small to donate.

Thank you in advance,

The Learning Tree
