YPFP DC: Happy Hour with buildOn
YPFP and the DC Chapter of buildOn (www.buildon.org) are proud to host a happy hour at Local 16 to raise funds to send six lucky high school kids to Malawi this summer to immerse themselves in the culture and build a school!
Thursday, March 7 | 6:30 - 8:30pm
1602 U Street NW
For many of us who have the means and privilege to travel we know all too well how a trip like this can impact you - change you.
For these youth this trip is a game changer.
This will be the first time they will leave the country (for some the DC metro area) and get a passport. buildOn knows that trips like this give our youth the ability to see themselves as global leaders. It removes them from the day to day cycle that drags them down and into trouble. It shows them that as US citizens they have opportunities that youth in other countries can only dream of. By having the chance to be leaders they gain the confidence to come back and break out of their cycle. Lastly, we accomplish all of this while building a school and giving the gift of knowledge to a village in Malawi.
I hope you will join us on March 7th (RSVP here) and help raise enough money for 2 out of the 6 students to go to Malawi!
You can also donate online (tax deductible!) here and help us raise enough for all 6 to go.
We hope to see many of you there!
