As EWB-UC ramps up its efforts to begin implementation of its second major project, the organization hopes to close the gap in its monetary needs through a truly exciting event in Bricks for Burere.
What: A fundraising event to help raise money to build the walls of the Kingigoro Primary School in Burere, Tanzania. Most students currently learn in collapsing classrooms - or must have class outside due to an already collapsed classroom.
When: September 19th - October 16th (last day of Homecoming week), the "brick wall" will begin construction at the start of October.
Where: Lobby of the Rec Center (where the old smoothie stand used to be)
How: For every donation, a brick will be given to the donator to be decorated and returned to EWB to be placed in the wall. Pricing is as follows:
One Brick, Student = $2
One Brick, Non-Student = $5
Family Brick (4 Bricks) = $20
Student Organization Brick (3x3) = $30
**Families and Organizations can purchase another row/column of bricks for $20 per added dimension.
Companies are being contacted to match on campus support.
EWB cannot not wait to demonstrate the support and encouragement found in its own university through this event.
Be on the look out for EWB's wall!
