BENEFITING: LA ISLA FOUNDATION INC
We're hosting welding workshops to teach young sugarcane workers the trade. Not only will this teach them a new skill, but more importantly, it will give them an alternative opportunity for employment that allows them to speak up for their community without fear of intimidation. Most sugarcane workers develop Chronic Kidney Disease, a disease which shuts down your kidneys and with the lack of appropriate healthcare means a death sentence. We don't want that to happen. Let's help these boys weld so they can be leaders in their community!
The money raised will buy all the supplies needed to start their own business. They will be learning with professional welders how to create bike taxis/pedi-taxis, doors, and many other useful products that they can both use and sell.
Want to see the full budget or have any other questions about the project? Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
