While in college, I travelled with a group of peers to Uganda. We had spent the previous 6 months raising funds to build a primary school in the village of Kiyamba outside of Kampala. It was an eye-opening, life-changing experience. My visit to Uganda spurred an interest in international development. I hope to take a similar service trip to the developing world in the future.
Currently, I am volunteering for an organization called Allowance for Good. The mission of Allowance for Good is to "educate and engage youth in philanthropy to cultivate global citizenship and improve education internationally." Allowance for Good provides an online platform for youth between the ages of 13-18 to donate to international education projects. By encouraging youth to become global citizens and philanthropists, Allowance for Good is creating a new generation of leaders and "changemakers."
