buildOn Student Volunteer with Students in Classroom

This issue’s charity: buildOn

Why they’re crucial: As children, most of us probably took access to the tools needed to learn to read and write for granted. However, students in poverty-stricken communities—both in the U.S. and developing countries—often don’t get the supplies and opportunities they need. For more than 20 years, the nonprofit buildOn has worked to improve education quality and access in the U.S. and abroad. buildOn works with students in urban U.S. high schools by building leadership skills through community service. In developing countries, the organization builds schools, which include programs for children and adults. Communities who benefit from buildOn schools agree to send boys and girls to attend the school in equal numbers.

What they do

• Run service learning programs in 50 high schools in urban areas in the United States

• Build schools in developing countries • Create safe environments where students can feel comfortable learning • Empower students to improve their communities, respect themselves, and gain leadership and communication skills through after-school programs and service projects

How we can help: Throughout the duration of this issue, we’re collecting donations to this important charity. To join our efforts, visit buildOn. Or mail donations directly to P.O. Box 16741, Stamford, Connecticut, 06905. Include the fundraiser name, Mother Earth Living Gives Back, on the envelope or check, if you wish. It’s our goal to collect $2,500 for buildOn.
