I’m doing a humanitarian project with 12 other students from my school, and we need to raise funds for it. It’s a continuation of a project already done in 2013 (the photos above are from last year’ project). I care very much about this project so I’ll explain it a little to you:
- The project: we’re leaving in August 2014 to Togo (West Africa). Our action is based on tutoring classes for children from a small village called Agou Atigbé, not far from Lomé, for three weeks in the morning. In the afternoon, we’ll do educational activities (related to sport, art, etc.). We are doing a partnership with an association from Togo, called Voluntarios. At the end of the tutoring, we’ll give the children school supplies for their next school year, and also as a gift for attending class during their holidays.
- Why do we need funds?: We’ve been thinking a lot about this project, and we first thought that we’ll bring school supplies from France (based on donation). But then, we realized that it’s a kind of neo-colonialism, and we don’t want that. So we had the idea of buying the supplies directly in Togo (to help the local businesses). That’s why we need your help, we can’t finance all of it because we already have a lot to pay (plane tickets, visa, vaccines, medicine etc.), your help would be precious.
—-> If you want to help (it can be very little), you can donate on our crowdfunding website [here]. The description of the project is in French, that’s why I explained part of it before + there’s “rewards” if you donate more than 5 euros :)
If you want more informations about the project, the association, the members of the groupe, the website all the reasons why this project exists, don’t hesitate to ask me or send me an email: email@example.com. We also have a facebook page (in French).
It would mean the world to me if you guys helped a little. I know we don’t always have money and if you can’t help me financially, can you help me to “spread” the message (reblog it), it would be very important to me :).
If you donate, you can message me, and I’ll make a special thank you post for everyone who does it.
(and please do not steal the photos, they were taken by a friend of mine who did the project last year)
