Streetlight Schools 5K Run for Funds
Organized by: Mohsen Malik
Help me support the expansion of a small pilot program to an expanded education laboratory.
About Streetlight Schools: Streetlight Schools is a South African non-profit kick-starting the next-generation schools’ revolution. South Africa has the worst-performing and most unequal education system of any newly industrialized country in the world. Halfway through schooling, more than half of South African learners are still not numerate or literate. The poorest communities, where we work, are affected the worst. With an innovative, cost-effective approach, Streetlight is bringing quality primary education to learners who need it the most.
Where We Are Today: We are expanding from a small pilot program to a bigger education laboratory. We are able to run our whole program for the year for only $15,000. We're trying to raise $10,000 towards this goal at this event.
Our Ask: Donate, donate, donate! We hope that each volunteer who has signed up for the run is able to personally fundraise $250.
When: The run is scheduled for Saturday, October 25h. We'll host two sessions:
10:00am or 12:00pm - please let us know which you're planning to join
Where: Prospect Park (we will run along the Park Drive runners pathway- details on where to meet to come soon)
For any questions, reach out to Mohsen on 516-263-3378 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
With your help, we can change the future for a South African child. Please join us.
