Where? At the end of this month I will be travelling for two and a half weeks to Uganda to work with school children (4 - 12yrs) in and around Kampala. I will be traveling with two large suitcases full of LEGO bricks graciously donated by the LEGO Foundation in hopes of introducing learning through play.
What? With the money that we raise we will be able to build a school building that will help enhance the lives of hundreds of children who deserve the right to a brighter future through education. As there is currently no school in this impoverished rural village, we will be giving a chance to many kids that have been neglected.
Why? Education is the key to poverty reduction as it increases access to economic opportunity and serves as a pathway to empowerment. Children are more likely to control their own destinies and effect change in their communities when they have access to education.
Why Donate? Many times when asked to donate you don't get to see the impact of your donation or can't trust that the money is getting to where it should. By donating to this compaign, I will personally be taking the money to the village myself and documenting the progress of the workshops and building of the school.
