Missions Monday - buildOn

It's time for Missions Monday.

Every Monday I will introduce you to some great charities that you can get involved in. When I say get involved, I mean you can donate your money, time, and/or pray for these organizations who are doing amazing things to help people.

Today I would like to introduce you to
buildOn



From the website:

buildOn’s afterschool youth service programs mobilize urban teens to lift up their communities and change the world through intensive local community service and by building schools in some of the poorest countries on the planet. We are a movement of students, educators and communities. We believe in the power of partnerships that passionately act for the common good. Through our afterschool programs, teens inspire people across neighborhoods, across cities, and across continents to reach and think beyond their realm of possibility.

buildOn’s Global School Construction Program provides rural communities in developing nations across the globe with access to education. We are breaking ground on a new school every four days with the help of our U.S. afterschool program members, donors and parents who have provided almost 1,000,000 volunteer work days to build schools for their children. Through a methodology that puts gender equality at the forefront and villagers in control, we are providing not only schools, but the knowledge and the power to change entire communities.

  1. Hi Wendy,
    Your twitter link got me here. So happy to see someone doing a "Mission Monday" kind of post. I always meant to do this and found that I never go beyond a Missions' page on my website :)
    Build On sounds like a great ministry, thanks for bringing it to my attention!
