EVENT DATE: Oct 15, 2013
You are a 16 year old girl, and you have to use the bathroom. Except, it isn't just down the hall. Your bathroom is on the outskirts of a dark refugee camp, where the threat of rape and sexual assault are ever present. I want to bring cheap, solar-powered lights to the Zaatari Refugee Camp and place them strategically around wash areas.
The UN and JRC have also stated that the lack of school supplies for local schools is at crisis level. As I travel through Jordan (on my way to the refugee camp), I want to bring notebooks and pencils to a few schools surrounding the camps.
Please help me afford more lights and school supplies, so that I can make my project a reality.
