Event Name: ME to WE CA - India 2017
I’m a high school student who wants to help make the world a better place! I’m fundraising to go on a volunteer trip to India this summer.
For as long as I can remember, I have been passionate about social justice, art, politics, and being kind to the people and animals around me. I've always loved having deep conversations about life and the world.
At middle school, I had the opportunity to dive into world issues and to express my love for social justice and art when I played Martin Luther King Jr. in a production about heroes and heroines. I couldn’t stop thinking about how everybody should have the opportunity to reach for the stars and make their dreams into realities.
On my trip, I will volunteer with like-minded youth in the province of Rajasthan. Together with the local community, we will work on a sustainable development project to remove some of the barriers to education.
The WE movement is driven by over one million passionate youth helping each other and the world to be the best we can be.
WE works in partnership with communities around the world to break the cycle of poverty through the five pillars of the WE Villages program: education, water, health, food and opportunity. Thanks to this initiative, about 650 schools and school rooms have been built and more than 55,000 children attend these schools every day.
I’m so excited to be a part of such an amazing movement and I need your help! I have raised $1000 so far but I still have a long way to go to reach my goal of $3,000. Please consider donating by clicking the “Donate Now” button bellow. All support will go directly to the cost of my trip!
