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 engagedthe 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, or to sponsor the education of children, or to sustain the safe house, or to build the academy for women's and girls' rights, or to build the women's center. Fund raisers choose where they want to allocate their donation.

 

If you are interested in organizing a service project or fund raising event, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@coinsforchange.org or via our website contact form. We would love to hear from you and help!
