Thank you for supporting CODE to empower youth through education.
I truly belive in the power of education to change lives and that is why I have been volunteering as a board director with CODE for the past 4 years. And that is why I am now joining CODE's 2018 KiliClimb and the Summit for Literacy.
Help me raise money in support to CODE and I promise to do all the work! CODE will make sure your donation makes a difference.
I am climbing because I really believe that a good education can change a child's life for the better. CODE’s amazing team, staff and volunteers alike, are working hard to deliver high quality, relevant education for children in developing countries. We promote a love of reading in kids’ through a literary award that produces and distributes young-adult fiction in Canada, Africa and the Caribbean.
The impact of education is felt throughout an entire community - when a child receives a basic education and sustainable literacy: girls marry later and have fewer children; infant mortality rates and maternal deaths decrease; rates of HIV/AIDS infection are lowered; family health improves; and the chance that the next generation will be educated increases significantly. Literate women and men are also more likely to participate in political processes and to contribute to economic and social development at local, regional, and national levels.
Thank you so much for your support!
