In the Toledo District of Belize, children yearn for an education.
They will do anything to learn — from waking up at 5:00 a.m. to take a bus to high school, to studying late into the night.
But financial hardship prevents children from learning — they don’t have the money to buy their books, uniforms, and shoes to attend high school. And they need more classrooms.
That’s why we are fighting for them — we are the people who will help them get an education to change their lives forever.
From 8:00 - 10:00 p.m. at the Voodoo Lounge, Downtown Des Moines, teams from the Drake Law School will gather to celebrate the fundraising efforts of the Law School teams in raising money for the Belize Dance Marathon. Each team is encouraged to raise at least $100. Register your team page by clicking on this calendar event.
