Once again, our group is participating in this year's Students Rebuild project, which this is "Student Uplift Challenge - Hands". (http://studentsrebuild.org/youthuplift). By being part of this project we hope to expand our understanding of the effects of extreme poverty has on young people lives around the world. We also hope to raise money through our efforts to agencies that support young people living in extreme poverty. We started work on this project in October by learning about how extreme poverty affects the lives of young people growing up throughout the world. We then started into taking action by making paper hands with message of support and uplift. For every hand we create and decorate with positive messages, the Bezos Family Foundation will donate $1.90—up to $500,000—to Save the Children’s programs empowering youth in Nicaragua and Indonesia to rise into a life they dream for themselves. The actual making of the hands is really quite easy and fun to do. We hope to share the project with other classrooms and at a community event in January.
