Hello BUIAA! We hope you are all having a great week.

Join us Wednesday at 730 pm in PHO 211

The BUIAA is proud to present the outstanding efforts of The School Fund this Wednesday for our weekly meeting. The School Fund sets up links with “students in the developing world directly with funders around the globe, thereby changing the way education development funding is both given and received.” Some of the students funded through The School Fund are from Haiti, Kenya, Malawi and Tanzania. Investing in education not only helps children get through school, but increases the productive capacity of an economy. Even more, investment in education has been tied with boosts in human health, life expectancy, economic opportunities, gender equality and more.

This is a great opportunity if you are looking to get involved with development issues on an international scale, we’ll see you there!
