My goal is to raise the $10,000 needed to build a school in a developing country by the end of 2019. I believe an education is every child's right, because it is the first step to personal empowerment and change. I know personally, the more I learn and the more knowledge I have, the greater ability I have to make decisions I'm proud of, stand up for myself, and be aware of what's going on around me. Imagine trying to make choices for you and your family, or determine if something is true or not, without being able to read or write, and even if you could, to not have access to books or the internet! And imagine not having the ability to send yourself OR your child to school- it's something we take for granted in North America. This is why I've always had the dream of helping to build a school (at least 1!), and would love it if you wanted to join me in making this a reality!
