BENEFITING: RANDOM ACTS

ORGANIZER: RANDOM ACTS

EVENT DATE: Jul 01, 2016

THE STORY:

*Danke für dein Interesse an unserem Projekt! Scrolle runter für die deutsche Version*

What is special about the "Free High School of San Juan del Sur"?
It gives EVERYONE the chance for secondary education and a better life.
Young mothers, adolescents who have to work instead of going to school to support their families, people who didn't have the chance for education when they were young - this school is a place where all these people are worth the same, nobody get's excluded.

Why I want to join random acts and the project.
I love the idea that even small acts of kindness can change the world.
Not being bigheaded and thinking that one particular thing is the most important right now - they all matter. They all make differences in people's lifes.
I enjoyed a huge privilege by growing up with free education and no financial troubles. I now have the chance to use this opportunity and give something back to others.
I am saving up my entire salary for the flight (I live in Germany so that's quite a trip) and the project.
All I need from you, is a little contribution to raise my fundraising goal, so I can join the project. It doesn't matter how much you donate!
I want to use this chance which random acts is giving us and keep you updated on everything important about the project and the school.
Join my facebook event to stay updated.
If you're still reading this, thank you so much for your interest in the project!
Gentle reminder: You are wonderful!

Was macht die "Free High School of San Juan del Sur" so besonders?
Diese Schule gibt ALLEN die Chance auf eine weiterführende Bildung und ein besseres Leben.
Junge Mütter, Heranwachsende, die arbeiten müssen, um ihre Familien finanziell über Wasse zu halten, Erwachsene, denen die Chance auf Bildung in ihrer Jungend verwehrt wurde - diese Schule ist ein Ort, an dem sie alle gleich sind, keiner wird ausgeschlossen.

Warum ich random acts und das Projekt unterstützen will.
Ich liebe die Idee, dass selbst kleine Taten der Güte die Welt verändern können.
Nicht eingebildet zu sein, und die einen "guten Taten" über andere zu stellen - alle diese Taten sind wichtig. Sie alle bewirken eine Veränderung in den Leben anderer.
Meiner Meinung nach, habe ich das große Privileg, kostenlose Bildung zu genießen und nie unter finanziellen Ängsten zu leiden. Jetzt habe ich die Chance, anderen etwas davon abzugeben.
Ich spare mein gesamtes Einkommen für die Flüge und, um das Projekt selber finanziell zu unterstützen.
Alles, was ich nun von euch brauche ist ein Beitrag, so klein oder groß er auch sein mag.
Nur ihr könnt es schaffen, mir zu helfen, mein Ziel zu erreichen und das Team von Random Acts zu begleiten und aktiv zu unterstützen.
Ich möchte die Chance nutzen, die Random Acts uns gibt, und meine Unterstützer_innen über alle Entwicklungen zum Projekt auf dem Laufenden zu halten, sodass ihr seht, was euer Geld tatsächlich bewirkt.
Nehmt an meinem Facebook-Event teil, um über alles Wichtige auf dem Laufenden gehalten zu werden.
Falls du das hier immer noch liest, möchte ich dir für dein großes Interesse danken!
Eine kleine Erinnerung: Du bist großartig!

Still not enough information?
RANDOM ACTS wrote -

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 May 15th, 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.
