Lights for Students in Rural Africa

How many times have you turned on the light at night? Whether it's studying for a big test, or merely reading for pleasure, the chance to read whenever we want is something most of us take for granted. But for people living off the electrical grid, when the sun goes down, so does their chance to read and learn.

This Gift That Gives More funds two rechargeable lights for students in the refugee camps in Rwanda, helping improve their ability to further their education.

Buses Urgently Needed for Safety of Afghan Schoolgirls
For a girl living in Afghanistan, going to school can be dangerous. In early November 2008, two men sprayed acid into the faces of girls as they walked to school, causing serious injury. In an effort to prevent further attacks, the Safe Ride to School program was created to purchase a school bus and hire a driver. Five years later, the bus is breaking down and we need to purchase another to ensure the girls of Mirwais Mena School get to class safely.

This Gift That Gives More helps a young Afghan girl get a safe ride to school by contributing to the purchase of a new bus.
