Areas of Focus: Basic education and literacy, Community economic development
This project and Global Grant is phase 1 of a 2 phase project that will assist children in poverty between the ages of 6 and 13 years old with education and a safe place to stay as well as at risk youth between 13 and 18 years old with education, training and give them skills to be able to gain employment.
This first phase will focus on the 13 to 18 year old at risk children and will help to keep them off the streets, away from crime and drugs and provide them with training and education for gainful employment by 18 years old.
This helps the local economic development by lifting youth out of poverty as a result of their employment and adult leadership examples.
This project needs to receive some pledges to go to the next level. Please check the "Financing" tab to see the list of current pledges. Once the amount pledged is equal to the project budget, the status of the project will be automatically changed to "Fully Pledged". Click here to pledge support for this project.
DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
