CAMFED U S A FOUNDATION via Crowdrise
February 29, 2012
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2012
On May 6, 15 Camfed cyclists will be taking part in the TD NYC Five Boro Bike Ride. Their goal - to send 15 girls in rural Africa to high school! Without help, these girls will be forced to drop out of school due to poverty. The girls supported by Camfed are selected by the local communities as being the most in need - girls like Asma, a hardworking student with a natural talent for math and sciences, who has dreamed of becoming a doctor since primary school. Camfed doesn't just provide her with books or school fees, but helps her throughout her development from her elementary school years until adulthood; allowing her to get into school, do well academically and maximize the value of her education after graduation. "Now I am able to study in peace because I have all I need from Camfed", she says.
Will you help Camfed's TD NYC Five Boro Bike Team reach its goal? It costs just $25/month to send a girl to high school for a year, changing her life.
