March 2009-“Reaching Out to Africa”: Tunahaki Orphanage, Tanzania, Africa

Awarded to Rebecca E.

This grant will help to raise funds and awareness to help an orphanage in Tanzania, Africa. “Being able to truly make a difference in people’s lives excites me the most. These children don’t have adequate food, water, clothes or other basic necessities and to be able to change that is incredible! This project will help youth in America to be more active and aware and it will help the youth at the orphanage by providing them with much needed basic necessities. I hope to bring this project not only to the Skidmore College Campus but to other campuses, too. We plan to raise enough money to bring 20 orphans to America to perform acrobatics and speak about their needs in Tanzania. We will have fundraisers: jewelry sales, donation boxes, bake sales, clothing, bags and button sales as well as other fundraising activities.
