KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
Our goal at The Sonder Project is not just to send funds. Our goal is to change lives, and consequently, change the world.
We put the stepping stones in place that will help the next generation break the cycle of extreme poverty. By giving these impoverished areas the tools that they need to create new opportunities for themselves, we hope that future generations can experience much different circumstances.
We all know that education lays the foundation for a successful future, yet there are nearly 900 million people worldwide who cannot read or write. Help us change this statistic and educate the world into a brighter future.
In 2015, The Sonder Project joined forces with buildOn to fund and build two primary schools in Burkina Faso, Africa. In 2016, we have committed to building at least three schools for those in need.
Your contributions will help provide the supplies needed from the building materials for the schools to the desks for the students. The local villagers and Sonder Project Ambassadors will work together to provide the labor and sweat equity necessary to build the schools for a better tomorrow. In the process, the sharing of knowledge, culture and experiences will be life-altering to those on both sides of the exchange.
So life-altering in fact, that after our first trek we’ve realized that we want to do more. With this in mind we hope to not only build schools in areas in need, but help set up entire Sonder Villages where children can thrive and learn. We will accomplish this by accessing the needs of a community and working to provide the resources that will help them flourish such as access to clean water, and deworming medications. Please consider donating to this cause so that together, we can build a future of opportunity for these beautiful children.
