When doing this project, we will raise awareness about the declining honey bee population at our school and in our community. We will write our state and national legislators and representative, educate our peers, host documentary screenings, create educational materials, and host fundraisers to buy pollinator plants for our school gardens. We will also visit local organizations that are dedicated to helping the honey bee and homeless people with pets. This will be the first Roots and Shoots program at our school, and we are excited to be planting the Root and Shoots seed!

We sell bracelets made by indigenous tribes in Paraguay, Brazil, and Ecuador. By doing this we are directly funding education in Paraguay; implanting students to have a desire for higher education, and we are providing resources to the Toba tribe in Paraguay. In Brazil we buy bracelets and directly fund a stove top project; creates stoves for poverty stricken families while reducing carbon emissions. Finally in Ecuador we work with Tuntiak Katan, an activist who is raising awareness about the environmental detrition in Ecuador along with preserving Ecuadorian culture and tradition. We want to create social change in our communities by using Social Entrepreneurship as the solution.
