BuildOn is a nonprofit organization determined to fight the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through education and service. Throughout the year we fundraise over 30,000 to fund a primary school in one of the seven countries BuildOn is partnered with: Malawi, Senegal, Nicaragua, Haiti, Nepal, Mali, and Burkina Faso. Some fundraising activities we do include: bake sales, raffles and grant writing. In addition to the school costs which include skilled laborers and materials, we also individually raise funds to send our own members to these various countries to stay with host families, engage in cultural sessions, and work on the worksite. In the past few years we have sent over 30 members on trek to Haiti, Nicaragua, Senegal, and Malawi. This year we are sending 27 dedicated members, the largest trek group in Lowell BuildOn history, to Haiti to fund an entire primary school! Join us to be apart of the BuildOn family in room 255 on Tuesdays at 3:45.
