Teens host AFTERNOON EVENT TO RAISE MOney & awareness for education in nicaragua
Energizing Education is an afternoon of fun consisting of games, contests, prizes, music, pizza & ice cream designed for middle school children from all local towns. This fund raising event on Friday, Feb. 24th from 3-8 pm at the Outback in New Canaan was created by 25 local teens to help send underprivileged children in Nicaragua to school. Come join the fun for the entire afternoon or any part of it.
Our goal is to raise awareness and money to send kids to school in a small town in Nicaragua. It only takes $100 to educate a child per year. This includes the cost of uniforms, shoes, books and tuition. Members of Kids Helping Kids travel to Nagarote every summer to work with these children. It is an amazing experience for the kids to see the impact of their efforts. Some children were attending school for the first time, at age 10, as a result of our donations! Education in Nicaragua is a luxury that many kids simply do not get to experience; All proceeds from this event will go to education for these children.
Tickets are $15 in advance: $20 at the door; all-inclusive. You can purchase tickets online at www.KidsHelpingKidsCT.org or call the Outback at 203-594-3074. If you are unable to attend, please consider showing your support by making a donation.
About KHK: Kids Helping Kids (KHK) is a non-profit organization developing future leaders through youth-led service programs by providing them a platform to turn their passion into action. The Kids Helping Kids program is unique because every project is inspired, designed and led by youth. In a fast paced, technological world, these young adults slow down to identify and support a cause. They gain perspective of the world they live in, and gain appreciation for their power to influence change and at the same time make a positive impact on the lives of other children. These are small steps in creating life-long leadership skills; this is how we build leaders for the future.
