For my project, my group is working to raise money to provide laptops for the school Doctor Pedro Joaquin Chamorro, located in Rivas, Nicaragua. The laptops are delivered in boxes of five, with each box costing $1250. This has been done in coordination with the non-profit organization One Laptop Per Child. In order to raise money, we have been reaching out to multiple educational organizations throughout the United States who are willing to make donations. I am very pleased with the progress my group has made, consisting of students from my school and from Norway! I will be leaving to meet with the Norwegian students in Norway on March 30. Through projects like this, we are working to make Global Goal #4: Quality Education a reality!
We will shape our garden into a place where birds and bees feel welcome and find a safe haven. With the intention to recreate a natural habitat, enriched with plants, flowers and waterfall,... that benefite their health and natural way of being. While enjoying the realization of this project as well as seeing the wildlife flourish, we also would like to give an example to inspire others to create their own B-Garden.
We are going to put on a fundraiser to raise money to help us get supplies to clean up the desert and plant new growth behind our school. We will need shovels to dig, soil, gloves, seeds and plants, and trash bags.
We will be raising money by hosting a board game night at our school. We want to raise money to purchase a rain barrel to collect water for our school to use on the plants because we live in the desert.
We will be building four bird houses for our school campus!
We will be putting on a food, clothes, and water drive at our school. We will also be putting together a bake sale in order to make a monetary donation to the Salvation Army.
The first part of the part has been sent to be peer reviewed by Metropolitan Community College Horticulture and University of Nebraska at Kearney Biology Department to see our rough draft using concrete to create an evaluated pond in the area. Once approved working with St Rosa to find live food fish in the area to stock the pond. We will then work on breed techniques we use in our state lab to breed tilapia to teach students at this college how we created this food network.
