Service Learning Projects
Parents, schools and universities are increasingly encouraging children to volunteer, whether it's to raise funds for those in need, help people with disabilities, or plant saplings at a local park. The benefits are significant, as volunteering teaches children about compassion, empathy, tolerance and social responsibility, as well as making children much more appreciative of what they have.
Coins for Change has helped schools, scout groups, churches and universities engage the compassion and empathy of their students, empower them with social responsibility, and offer them an opportunity to positively impact the lives of poor, marginalized Maasai children in Amboseli, Kenya. These are called Service Learning Projects.
Example service learning projects:
Got Goat Club Middle School project, Feltwell, England
Perry High School DECA Club, Phoenix, Arizona
Running With The Goats, Enactus Binghamton University, New York
Bamberg Elementary School, Germany
Madison Middle School Theatre Department
AFNORTH High School, JROTC, Netherlands
Service Learning Projects enable students to organize events and raise funds that will change the lives of poor, marginalized Maasai children. Funds raised can be allocated to any of the initiatives run by Coins for Change - to purchase galla goats for families in dire need of sustainable sources of nutrition and income, to sponsor the education of children, to sustain the safe house, or to hold community workshops. Fund raisers choose where they want to allocate their donation.
