Group seeks donations to aid refugee school
The Mid-Hudson Valley chapter of the United Nations Association of the United States is adopting the Central School in Dadaab refugee camp, Kenya, as part of the Adopt-A- Future campaign, which supports refugee education worldwide in collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
The Mid-Hudson Valley chapter has set a fundraising goal of $30,000 to help build classrooms and purchase school supplies for the Central School, which serves 2,164 students ages 6-13 who have been forced to flee their homes in the midst of conflict.
All funds raised will receive a 100 percent match from the Educate A Child Fund of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nassar of Qatar and other philanthropic partners. To help the chapter meet its goal, visit unausa.org/programs/adopt-a-future (select Mid-Hudson Valley Chapter to donate to Central School). Donations are tax-deductible.
