BENEFITING: RANDOM ACTS

EVENT DATE: Jul 01, 2016

THE STORY:

UPDATE: The deadline to qualify for a spot on the trip this year as been extended to June 5th!

In Nicaragua, being born in a rural community often precludes access to high school education and all the opportunities in life that come with it, especially for women. Many rural families practice subsistence farming and do not generate enough income to meet their basic needs even excluding education. These and other individuals such as women who are pregnant or have children, anyone over 18, and people who must work during weekdays are excluded from regular schools.

The Free High School of San Juan del Sur gives these students a chance at secondary education and a better life. In 2012, Random Acts fundraised to help them purchase a bus. Last year, we took on a much bigger dream: a Center for Human Development which will serve as a campus for the Free High School. We raised the money to complete the first building of the new campus, and in November a team of our top fundraisers took a trip to San Juan del Sur with us to meet both teachers and students and to put their own physical effort and sweat into building the campus.

This year, we are fundraising for the second building of the campus, which will house the majority of the classroom space.

Without their own campus, the Free High School students are second class citizens in the eyes of the state, their community, and even themselves. These older adolescents and adults squeeze themselves into elementary school desks and chairs every Saturday, they have very little access to a computer lab that’s far away, and they are treated as lower class students; the discountable.

It’s time to give these deserving students a beautiful campus of their own, complete with a library and a computer lab. Doing so not only gives the school a home, but also teaches the students – some for the first time in their lives – that they are equal to their peers, and valued citizens of the world.

Please join us in turning this dream into reality!

The first 25 people who raise $5,000 on this Crowdrise page between now and June 5th, along with one lucky drawing winner, will be able to join the Random Acts team on the trip of a lifetime to San Juan del Sur this July 1-8. Click the “Fundraise for this Campaign” button to get started!

For more details about the Dreams to Acts: Nicaragua project, including requirements for joining the trip, please visit our Dreams to Acts: Nicaragua website.

 

Important information regarding the funds you raise or donate: All donations raised through the Dreams to Acts: Nicaragua fundraising campaign on Crowdrise will go to Random Acts, a division of The Art Department, Inc. The primary commitment for these funds is to construct the Center for Human Development in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua and to support any other local organizations with whom we may choose to partner (this includes administrative and operational expenses associated with our D2A: Nicaragua project). Should funds from this campaign be available after our commitment is satisfied, we reserve the right to re-allocate them to past or future development projects or special initiatives.
