Why We Need You This #GivingTuesday
We hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving! We are grateful this time of year for our donors who have helped make our efforts possible. Over the last 8 months donations have been the fuel enabling us to establish 8 vocational training programs and serve over 120 students in areas affected by conflict and war. We deeply appreciate those who have given a little or a lot to help us rebuild lives.
#GivingTuesday is just around the corner and we need your support to launch us forward into the new year. #GivingTuesday is a growing charitable movement that kicks off the holiday season and is an incredible opportunity to support a cause you care about!
Rebuild for Peace has a goal to raise $25,000 on #GivingTuesday. Funds raised will go toward starting 4 new vocational training centers, as well as other costs associated with our Vocational Education Program in Jordan. These training centers have helped numerous individuals, of different genders and economic status, and all are intended to empower students to find solutions to challenges within their own communities.
Here are some highlights of our program.
Our work was launched by a grant from the Vocational Training Corporation, a branch of the Jordanian government. However, wages for our staff, our educators, tools, and meals for students are sustained entirely by the love, appreciation, and individual contributions that you and your friends make to us and our students.
Every contribution that we receive we use to ensure that we are providing quality vocational education and entrepreneurial skills that help underserved communities feel empowered to help provide for themselves and their families.
For the duration of the 3-month program, every $50 donation provides 1 student:
Daily meals and a safe learning environment
A full course of teaching in e-marketing and a vocational trade of their choice
All the necessary tools for their trade
Pastoral care and mentorship
Financial support for their business upon graduation
At the core of our work, and our mission, we are peace-builders and admit students of any race, color, religion, and national or ethnic origin. We would continue to be honored and grateful to you if you made a contribution to us today and remember us on #GivingTuesday!
