Equip Jamaican Youth to Fight Climate Change
ACDI/VOCA Launches Fall Campaign
We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.
–Native American proverb
This year’s Friends of ACDI/VOCA fundraising campaign starts today, Giving Tuesday, to kick off the holiday season of giving. Like previous campaigns, this year’s efforts will support a project that builds upon what we do well. This year, your donation will fund a one-day Climate Camp for Jamaican youth developed by our JaREEACH II team in Jamaica.
Climate Camp will prepare 200 youth between the ages of 8 and 17 to help their communities fight the effects of climate change.
With your generous support, past Friends of ACDI/VOCA campaigns have enabled us to extend the reach of multiple projects to further improve lives and empower communities. Our 2016 campaign helped 1,350 smallholder farmers working with our PROFIT+ project in Zambia. PROFIT+ is expanding nutritious crop production through improved seeds, greenhouse construction, and volunteer technical assistance.
