Right now, as you’re reading this, there is a crisis of epic proportions occurring all over the world. A hidden and silent crisis…in education. Hidden because a camera will never capture children going hungry for want of education, or a life devastated for want of learning; silent because education is a long-term solution that demands more attention than we are wired to give. Community members in Uganda and students involved with the Building Tomorrow chapter at Ball State have already committed themselves to alleviating this crisis. Now we are asking for your help!
In order to make these schools possible, besides our funding, communities give up 15,000 hours of labor and 3 acres of their land in order to build their schools. Our chapter hopes to raise $2,500 for the year to support their efforts and the construction of a new Building Tomorrow primary school in Uganda; one that will give 315 students a safe, local and permanent school to attend.
Every little bit counts. Even something as $1 buys bricks, $5 buys a box of nails, $10 purchases a sheet of tin for the rood, $20 gives a desk to a student, $25 is a bag of cement, $52 is the average cost to send to a student in Uganda to school for a year, and $125 gives a chalkboard to a classroom.
Donate today in order to build a better tomorrow for the children of Uganda!
