Science & Tech Fundraiser

WHY RAISING FUNDS FOR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY PROJECT

Science and Technology is a sub project under Educate Jarra, the project focuses on introducing ICT infrastructure in schools across Jarra region with the view of supporting students through digital learning. The project is also focusing on introducing fully equipped Science laboratory, giving students access to lab facilities to be able to conduct experiments. When the project is initiated, there wasn't any funds to drive it to its destination. This fundraising event was then initiated by Educate Jarra to help secure funds in order to start piloting the project in one of the schools by September 2017.  The fundraiser was then set to take place on July 8th, 2017. Several other avenues were also explored, e.g. consultations were initiated with Banks, NGOs etc.  After numerous consultations, Educate Jarra secured a total amount $100,000.00 donated to them by the ISDB to deliver the project. 

This was a major turning point and achievement for Educate Jarra. The project sets off on a very good mark in securing this huge donation. Looking at the other components of the Project, there is still the need to raise funds to be able to execute programs within those components, e.g. scholarship awards, provisions of learning and resources. This is why this fundraiser has become so important. We require support from you in order to run all three components in parallel to avoid any delays.
