Schools for Schools: School building & Fundraising Dinner

In the Developed World we often treat education as a chore rather than a privilege, and forget the benefits and empowerment it provides us. With more than 120 million children around the world denied basic education, perhaps it is time we share this gift with those in need.

On Thursday, March 19th, 2015 from 6:00pm – 9:30pm in the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute’s “Tercentenary Hall” and “Knowledge Exchange” rooms, there will be a Charity Fundraising Dinner and Auction to help build an elementary school for disadvantaged children living in Ecuador. Over 300,000 children are working as child laborers in Ecuador, 28.6% of the population live below the poverty line, 25.8% suffers from chronic malnutrition, and 55% of Ecuador’s indigenous population lives in poverty.

Please support this charity initiative by attending the event or making an online donation. Everything counts so whatever you donate will go a long way to helping a child in need.
