Hello Friends of Project WOO!!
We would like to announce the official launch of our 2009 Fall Fundraising Campaign. Starting today, Monday August 24th, we seek to raise $10,000.00 by Friday October 23rd.
Over the course of the next two months we hope you will be inspired to help us reach our goal. Whether you are a long-time supporter or a first-time giver, we want you to know that 100 percent of your donation will be used in Nicaragua to support our two major projects:
- Small business development & support for Transportes Ola de Optimismo, S.A.
- Elementary school support with teacher training, school supplies, and infrastructure improvements
To learn more about exactly what your donation would support, please see the "Transportation and Economic Development," and the "Support for Local Education in Gigante Village" blogs dated 8/14 and 7/30, respectively.
We hope that once you know more about the truly meaningful work that is sponsored by Project WOO and carried out by our Nicaraguan staff, you will be moved to help us reach our fundraising goal and allow us to continue to inspire people in these small coastal towns to improve their lives, one day at a time. Thank you!!
The new Gigante bus is a locally owned and operated business called Transportes Ola de Optimismo, S.A. (Wave of Optimism Transportation, LLC, in English). Your donation will help make sure it gets the financial and technical support it desperately needs during the crucial start-up phase.
Nicaraguan school teachers are pictured here participating in one of the very important teacher training seminars sponsored by Project WOO in the village of Gigante. Your gift will support the continuation of these workshops, which impart interactive teaching methods and provide much needed school supplies that are used to improve education for the village's children.
