BuildOn

Do you build on?

We are a group of students dedicated to bringing education, equality, and literacy to the world.

Every day, 22,000 children die from poverty.
If a girl completes primary school, her chances of getting HIV/AIDS falls by half.

Education is a fundamental human right. 

775 million people in the world are illiterate today. 775,000,000 people. That’s more than half the population of India. Or about two and a half times the population of the US. 

Your donation will help. Any amount, no matter how small, will go toward helping us bring education to a village in Nepal. buildOn works with the country and their department of education to prevent dependency. We provide the bricks, the spark, the community provides the passion to keep the fire alive. 

Please donate today, and help us bring opportunity, hope, and education to the world.

Lewis & Clark BuildOn is now in its third year as a college chapter. Started in 2011 by Alyssa Ransbury, we have successfully raised $60,000 and built two schools: one in Malawi and one in Haiti. The club is inhabited by people who love education and the causes that BuildOn stands for. We are not a charity, we are a movement
