JOIN US in Building School Gardens for 1000 Youth in Burundi

“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give”

–Winston Churchill

#GivingTuesday (November 28th) is a global day of giving.

Join us to raise $2500 to support Burundi 4-H School Gardens in 2018.

Join Us if you believe every child has a right to healthy food. Since the beginning of 2017 there have been approximately 5,000,000 clinical cases of malaria registered across Burundi.  Our Burundi 4-H Sister Schools are situated in one of the hardest hit areas of the malaria epidemic.  Malaria is directly linked to food insecurity and malnutrition.  Burundi 4-H School Gardens are playing a vital role in reducing the vulnerability of children by giving students the skills and materials needed to plant, grow and harvest their own vegetables, thus, improving their overall health and resistance to deadly diseases such as malaria.  In turn these students are sharing what they learn with their families and communities, improving the health of everyone. It costs $2,500 to supply one year of gardening supplies for all four Burundi Sister Schools. Help us during the 2017 Global Giving year-end campaign, to raise $2,000 to support one year’s of Sister School gardening supplies.

Please help support the Burundi 4-H project this year during our Global Giving Campaign Tuesday, November 28th – Sunday, December 31st 2017.

A percentage of donations received on #GivingTuesday (Nov. 28th) will be matched by GlobalGiving.

Donors that set up new recurring donations from Wednesday, November 29th through December 31st will be matched at 100% of the first month’s gift.

The more you give the more our project will receive! Donate at: https://goto.gg/22344
