The CWP estimates Americans will pass an average $56 trillion to the next generation by 2052. To create good stewards of these resources and to address root causes of poverty, we must educate the next generation about responsible giving. When AfG engages internationally, we do so with an innovative approach that empowers local stakeholders and invests in multi-sectoral education projects to reduce poverty. In return, US teens that engage with AfG become active participants in global giving.
With your support, Allowance for Good will educate 100 US teens in philanthropy and the challenges in global education through direct programming. We will then invite youth to take action by contributing $5 or $10 on weekly, monthly, or one time to global education projects to one of our global partners. These funds will directly benefit the 50 children attending in the community who need access to clean water, a better school facility, and greater educational opportunity.
The project will educate 100 youth equipping them with knowledge and skills active, lifelong catalysts in global philanthropy and international education. Their commitment to addressing the challenges in international education will help to break the cycle of poverty faced by youth in Cambodia and Guatemala. They will also have the chance to impact the lives of youth in Zambia and Nicaragua, where we will partner with organizations to address similar challenges.
