Build a School, Build a Future in Cima!
LKNB is teaming up with Sonje Ayiti to build a new school in Cima, Haiti, a rural community near Cap Haitien.
In Cima, they desperately need improved sanitation, clean water, electricity, nutritious food, and, for many children, the chance to go to school for the first time. Many people displaced by the earthquake of 2010 have found a new home there, increasing the need for these basic life necessities and services.
The new Cima school will address all of those needs, and we are asking for your support to get it built.
The land for the school has already been purchased and the well is being dug. There are 5 classrooms, plus a cafeteria, kitchen, and 10 modern bathrooms planned for the school. Each classroom will cost $25,000 (U.S.) to build. The amount needed to complete the school is $163,000 (U.S.). The more we can raise through the Holiday Challenge, the closer we can get to making the school a reality!
The children are counting on us!
Please take a moment to view the photos and video at left to see some of the many children and teachers whose lives will be forever changed by being able to attend the new Cima school.
Can you strengthen their future with a gift today?
Please give as generously as you can. All gifts are tax-deductible.
Will you please also help spread the word?
Getting the word out raises awareness about this awesome project and increases the impact our fund raising for the school can have. It's crucial to the success of this project!
One easy, quick way you can help spread the word:
You could invite 10, 20, or more of your friends to learn about this project by sharing this link in an e-mail, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or wherever you can. They'll probably be glad to hear about something POSITIVE happening in the world!
Thank you so much for your time, generosity, and consideration.
For a thriving future in Cima,
The LKNB leadership team (Jamila, Mike, Scott, Erik, Darius, Ray, and Gerry)
