LOS ANGELES, CA – December 3, 2012 – i-ACT’s volunteer Nikita Otto is leading a Little Ripples FundRazr to provide early childhood education for Darfuri refugees. The campaign, ”31 Days of Giving to Little Ripples,” encourages people to give the gift of knowledge during the forthcoming holiday season. With a goal of $5000, people can donate through December 31, 2012.
Little Ripples will provide preschool education for the 7,300 refugee children ages 3-5 years old in Darfuri refugee camps Djabal and Goz Amer. This effort will be started by building and implementing a cluster of 6 classrooms in Goz Amer, and then expand to provide preschool education for all children in both camps.
Contributions will have a variety of positive impacts on the youth of Goz Amer, including:
$7 – Clothes for School: Our refugee friends have always said that uniforms were important. It helps foster pride in education and creates equality in the classroom.
$13 – Be Prepared to Learn: Classroom tools help children gain cognitive skills, as well as learn how to share and work together. Help give the gift of building blocks, chalkboards, stuffed animals, and more!
$25 – Building a Latrine and Water Point: Promote a healthy environment by providing a share into building a latrine and clean water system in the compound.
$35 – One Month of Education: You cannot put a price on education, for it is invaluable. However, when there isn’t an opportunity, one must make one.
$48 – Classroom Leaders: Teachers foster growth, healing, and learning for every little ripple.
