We are a group of seven colleagues and friends of Beyamra Ounoumdon who are determined to raise funds for the Koumra School. It’s difficult to imagine how much the students are counting on us. Their school is truly their only hope for a brighter future.
Advance is the NGO we founded to raise funds for the Koumra School. It has no full-time employees. It is run entirely by volunteers, including those who designed and developed our website. None of the funds raised are used for travel expenses to Chad.
Paypal takes a 5% cut of each financial transaction, and the Koumra School web site’s hosting costs $200 a year. All other funds raised go directly to our projects on the ground in Koumra. We pay suppliers directly.
Located in the city of Koumra, in southern Chad, the school was built for children who can’t afford the area’s schools.
Today, 10 years later, the Koumra School’s academic results are amongst the best in the country. Nonetheless, the school struggles to survive.
Facts: 1,325 Students aged 6 to 18, 36 Teachers, 4 Buildings, No Electricity, No Toilets
We just want your money and your friends’ money ☺
We have divided our goals into various projects than can be donated to. Check them out and don’t forget to raise awareness for the school by telling about it to your friends and family over the phone, camp fire, water, cooler, coffee and dinner.
Oh and of course, liking, posting, tweeting, sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google, etc etc etc will help spread the news online.
