Schaeffer StudEnt Council fundraising EVENT

The week before Christmas, SAHARA partnered with the student council of Schaeffer Academy, a local classical Christian school, and organized a week-long, school-wide competition geared towards raising funds and awareness for the training of 5 Burundian eye technicians. In the competition, the entire school (K-12) was divided into 5 teams, each representing one of the 5 trainees. They competed with each other by accumulating points through donating money, creating posters, interacting with SAHARA's facebook page, and completing daily quizzes. The quizzes were based on information we posted on our blog regarding African culture, the SAHARA Project, Burundi, development economics, and the training program.
