The world has evolved and times have changed; for the better as well as for the worse. A lot of tragedies are happening, poverty, famine, war, diseases, overpopulation, etc. The poorest countries are the most affected by this unfortunate situation. Clean water, or a home, (displaced by war), food, etc.
There is a growing income inequality gap between the rich and the poor. As of 2022, recent reports show that the richest 10% of the global population currently takes 52% of global income, whereas the poorest half of the population earns 8.5% of it.
In one of our recent team building sessions with our team members, we discussed how deep the problem is. Every community, every district, in every country has a gap to fill; from education, health, inclusion, safety, gender equality, etc.
We concluded that most communities are victims of a lack of access to equal opportunities across all sectors.
It's a cycle of inadequacy passed down from generation to generation, with many living in a single community their whole lives. They grow up shaped by the cultures and perspectives of their small communities, and the pattern continues.
At Lenoir Foundation, we strongly believe that through quality education and equal access to opportunities, every child can become the best version of themselves. This is why we have been and continue working with the most marginalized communities to build E-Learning Hubs and libraries, bridging the digital divide.
We are currently working with different school heads in different communities to help these children improve their education by providing them with the necessary school supplies.
In our most recent fundraiser, we were able to build our 1st library in Kyenda community that can accommodate an average classroom number. We believe one library at a time can make a whole lot of difference.
For a future ahead full of limitless possibilities for making a difference in the lives of those in need, we have several fundraisers dedicated to 3 different causes.
Our 1st fundraiser is focused on E-learning. The world has indeed evolved for the better with different inventions in technology, but there is still a large number of schools and communities that do not have the privilege to own a desktop computer, laptop, or Ipad.
So many schools today do not teach IT-related subjects because they do not have the equipment to use to be able to teach these children the knowledge required.
We are collecting computer desktops and laptops as we intend to give them out to schools that need them in providing their students with the knowledge.
Our 2nd fundraiser is focused on building our 2nd Library in Africa.
Libraries are essential in schools and communities for they provide educational and literacy programs, and public access to information.
However, there are many schools in developing countries without structures and books to allow their students to read and provide a gateway to human knowledge and understanding and access to education that enriches society and contributes to the social transformation of communities.
Our 3rd fundraiser is targeted toward our Education Assistance Plan. With thousands of school children in struggling communities who often lack or are unable to afford basic school supplies like uniforms, books, pencils, pens, or even tuition. This makes it difficult for them to attend school in their local community smoothly.
We make a groundbreaking difference when we come together for a common cause. There are different causes that one may relate with that you can be a part of this giving season within your community that would change a person’s life.
We encourage you to support different organizations in any possible way, through volunteering, donating books, clothes, or your knowledge can educate and influence people to take action.
We are inspired by the stories of those who continue to make a difference in the world. Our founder always refers to one message, “to live a life that is impactful to others; that is how you will be remembered.”
Myles Munroe also once said, “ The value of life is not in its duration but in its donation. You are not important because of how long you live, you are important because of how effectively you live.”
Our team and community are driven by these beliefs, that we all have something to give, no matter, how small., it can make a difference in another person’s life.
Join us this giving season and be a part of something bigger than yourself.
