When interior classroom temperatures in the rural village of Ngong, in Northern Cameroon, soar up to 120F, students are unable to attend class. Denying students the education they need to pull themselves out of poverty for a completely solvable reason is unaccebtable and I knew that someting needed to be done.
My name is Kelsey and I am the Founder of Design Cause, an organization that provides design services to communities to help them solve infrastructural needs. I started Design Cause to fufill a promise I made to the community of Ngong and hopefully many other communities in the future.
Our first project is a classroom that is specifically designed to stay cool even when outside temperatures are well above 100F. The new design took two years of research, collaboration with the students, faculty, and community, and development to put together and we are excited to be raising the funds needed to now make this classroom a reality.
For the last two and a half years this new classroom has been a major part of my life but I haven't been able to include many others in this exciting initiative. Now I am excited to welcome you and your friends to become a critical part of this exciting project that not only has the ability to impact the community of Ngong, but all of Northern Cameroon.
All donations go straight to the construction of the classroom. Be a part of something bigger and make a donation today!
