Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists? We recently started a new project: “The Camaraderie Campaign”. The goal of this project is to engage high school students in the Cincinnati area with students alike in Kakamega, Kenya. For ten dollars a month, any student can become a comrade supporting a high school student across the world. The idea behind this concept is that, “When everyone does a small part, it becomes something great.” As a monthly supporter, students receive regular updates on the student(s) they support.
Does your organization have volunteer opportunities available for students? * Yes, Grades 6 – 12
