The main goal of this charitable organization is to raise enough money to build a school and provide a place for learning at an impoverished state of Gondar in Ethiopia. We believe that by providing the young generation a place for proper education, we are giving them the tools to help create a society that is better equipped to face challenges and ultimately eliminate poverty.
The only way we can better struggling societies is by providing the opportunity for an education. As education brings enlightenment, we will see communities solving their own problems, making a difference, and not depending on foreign aid. Thus, if the children in the city of Gondar are educated, they will be better informed about the causes of poor health, high infant mortality rate, obstetrical death, and famine. Being educated and aware of the problems and possible solutions is the first step to a developing community.
We would like to cordially invite you to join us in making a difference in the lives of these young, uneducated children. Together, we can end this vicious cycle of poverty. Our goal is to raise $24,000 to build a school for over 200 students. To do so we will be collecting recyclables from you and selling them to the recycle factory in exchange for money. Simply by donating your recyclables, you can make a profound impact on the lives of many children.
If you would like to become more involved in Bottles For Poverty, there are many opportunities available. We have officer positions that involve logistics, newsletter editing, and event coordination. We meet every Wednesday at 8PM in Wellman 111. Kindly send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or message us on Facebook for more meeting information.
