Your donation allows us to provide the tools for education so that our students can focus and succeed with learning. We want students to focus their attention on learning and not what they have to find to sit and write on.
2017 GOAL = $3,000
Cost of a chair = $35 CAD
Cost of a desk = $55 CAD
What is also particularly interesting about these desks and chairs is that there are manufactured by a team of disabled students called Abilities Group in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
While our intended mission is providing desks and chairs to impoverished rural schools, buying locally creates employment for the disabled students, thus creating a twofold benefit to your donation.
The Foundations Yearly Costs:
1) Cost of website - $67
2) Cost of money wire transfer to Zimbabwe - $35
3) Cost of print, paper & set up for events - $60
4) Pay pal fees - $120
Total - $282
If we reach our intended target of $3,000 the recipients receive 91% of all the donations made.
