“We Create Change” has global impact

Students from a Washington high school created a campaign “We Create Change” to raise money to build a school in Oloirien, Kenya in partnership with the global non-profit organization Free the Children. Free the Children’s mission is to “Empower youth to remove barriers that prevent them from being active local and global citizens.” The town of Oloirien has only one school in the village that is not big enough for all the children, with only nine rudimentary classrooms for 501 children. The high school students collected change throughout the year, and put on fundraisers for this cause, reaching a final total of $10,000 that will help pay for the new school in Kenya.
