Building Botswana's mission is to partner with locals in Southern Africa to build hope for poverty-stricken communities. With respect for cultural diversity and an emphasis on education, we aim to inspire moments of optimism by empowering locals to make a difference.
This fundraiser is specifically to help build a school near the rural village of Pandamatenga for children who are currently walking over 3 miles (over 5 kms) to get to school each day. Not only is this a long way to walk, but the path is dangerous and wildlife could be lurking at any corner.
Your donation will provide support and build hope for poverty stricken communities in Botswana. Any contribution you can make is greatly appreciated. Building Botswana is a registered 501(c)3 organization. EIN: 27-5410250.
This fundraiser is not the same company as the FurtherSociety website at: http://furthersociety.com. However, we at FurtherSociety did set up this fundraiser on CrowdRise and are supporting this cause.
For every one dollar entered, you will be entered into a drawing to be my nomination (Kevin Triemstra @ FurtherSociety.com) to choose someone to receive a FREE ROUND TRIP TICKET TO BOTSWANA to help with the effort, and of course, you can nominate yourself to go. If you donate $1000, then you get 1000 chances to win. If you donate $5000, you win automatically and we will take the other funds previously raised and start a second fundraiser. A minimum of $5000 must be raised for each round trip ticket.
*Must be a US citizen and 18 or older. Flight leaves from JFK to BBK. March 15th, 2014 - March 22, 2014. No ground transportation or hotel is included. Must travel on these dates from JFK to BBK or flight is forfeited.
Perhaps you have a niece, a nephew, daughter, son, mother, father, or best friend who would like to go help the effort. Or, perhaps you would like to go yourself! YES, YOU CAN GO! It's up to you! And if you don't want to go after winning the contest, I know PLENTY of volunteers ready to go assist. Allow your dollars and a special volunteer to assist this deserving effort.
Build Botswana and give yourself a life-changing opportunity. Contruction begins in March. We'd love to have you work with us!
