buildOn's goal is to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations by building schools in underdeveloped countries. It empowers people to learn and to pull themselves and their families out of poverty.
In 2010, IA buildOn funded the entire construction costs of a school in in Chaquitillo, Nicaragua. Thirteen students from IA lived with host families in the village and broke ground for the construction of this school.
In 2011, we helped fund a school in Mali. A group of three IA students traveled to Africa to begin the construction of this school.
In 2012, we travelled to Nicaragua to build a school.
This past year, in 2014 we fundraised $30,000 to build a school in Nepal. Twelve students form IA Central and West travelled to Kidi village to construct the school.
Now our goal is to build a school in Haiti in February 2015!
Help make it happen!
