Change Heroes is an amazing funding platform where anyone can fund a school house in developing countries with 33 friends. By just getting 33 friends to donate $3.33 a day for 3 months you can raise $10,000 and build a school house that educates 50 kids a year for over well over 20 years. That means you and your friends can give the gift of education to over 1000 children in a developing country!
I was so pleased to work on this project with my friends. By just giving the amount of a coffee a day we are able to build a school in Kenya. Here is a letter from Change Heroes about the community our school will be built in, along with some photos from other school house projects in Kenya.
For more information on how you and your friends can participate in the same project visit www.changeheroes.com. What an amazing experience!!

I just heard from Sarah, our contact at Free the Children (who is on the ground in Kenya), and your money has been matched to a community in need of a brand new school! Attached to this email are some photos that Sarah passed along from Kenya…I hope you enjoy them 🙂
The community is called Ngosuani and is located in the Narok South District of the Maasai Mara Region of Kenya. Ngosuani has a population of about 1,800 people, with 500 school-going children. The literacy rate in the community is 10 percent for men and 2 percent for woman. With your help and the construction of new schools these rates should begin to increase.
Funding this school is an incredible achievement and you should be incredibly proud; you’re literally changing the lives of hundreds of children. Local workers have broke ground and started the construction of your school! This is extremely exciting news and we will be sure to keep you posted on all of the progress!
