Thanks to the graciousness of donors on Facebook, we've been able to raise $995 in addition to the funds raised on this GoFundMe page!
Trees or bushes.
Or an actual locker room with toilets.
The Banda Bola Sports Foundation operates in northern Malawi, Africa — one of the poorest regions in the world. The Foundation’s school-based soccer programs motivate girls and boys to attend school, and foster gender equality.
A real soccer field is currently being built, but the next priority is a legit locker room with toilets, so the girls will have privacy.
This is where the trees and bushes come in, because that’s where the girls hide now to change. Or, they choose to play in a dress…or not at all.
We need 15,000 bricks. Will you please contribute what you can to this "Buck for a Brick" campaign, so they can ditch the bushes? We all know how playing a team sport taught us more than how to kick a ball or throw a perfect pass, but for the kids in the Banda Bola Sports programs, being able to play means far, far more.
Thank you for your support.
