A video about building a school - the communiy way

Bricks to built their new school
Bricks to built their new school

Dear friends,

Wanting to build a school for their children was the motivation for the community of Fiarenena to invite Zahana to partner with them in 2009.

The Tscherman Chef cooked something up: a video with the community effort as ingredients.

Development needs to be serious? (Although the issues sure still are.) If you spent 1 minute and 40 seconds watching our video on Youtube you can find out. The slide show about building the school is still my personal favorite page on our website. The video will also feature soon on our GlobalGiving project page “A community school for all (children) in Fiarenana”

And a reminder GlobalGiving’ Bonus Day begins at one minute after midnight EDT on on Wednesday June 13, 2012 (Eastern Daylight Time or same time zone as New York).

The formula is simple: your donations to Zahana will be matched at 50%. Last time GlobalGiving ran out of matching funds, please try early in the day if you want to supersize you donation by 50% with the click of a mouse. Details on our website.
