THE STORY:

LEADERSHIP EXCHANGE wrote -

Botswana has one of the lowest life expectancies and one of the highest occurences of AIDS in the world. Imagine being forced to live in conditions like this, but without the guidance of a parent or a loved one. Organizations, like Bana Ba Letsatsi, help disenfranchised children in Botswana gain the strength they need to go on. Bana Ba Letsatsi provides food, education and clothes for these children and also a reason for them to not be in the streets. By donating to this fundraiser you will be directly helping organizations, like Bana Ba Letsatsi, improve the lives of Botswana's homeless and impoverished children.

I care about this cause, because I like to think that if I were in a similar situation there would be someone there to support me, like Bana Ba Letsatsi does. I have a niece that is three years old and just the idea of her having to be homeless hurts me deeply and I would never want to see another with the same problem. It makes me have hope that there are people out there that care and WANT to help, but often times do not have the means and that is why your donation would be greatly appreciated.

Despite, the hardships that these children face they are resilient and strong and with your help they will continue to be.

To help accomplish our goals, Leadership Exchange cultivates relationships with local social service organizations through direct funding and by providing community service trips to better these organizations, help build their infrastructure, and to aid their surrounding communities. In addition, Leadership Exchange is very proud to partner with other existing nonprofit organizations that add invaluable depth to our program.


Your support:

Provides trips to students from across the country and around the world
Provides direct aid to our partner organizations, like Bana Ba Letsatsi
Helps build schools
Empowers children
Develops communities

Thank you!!!
