After visiting the Mainsprings campus in Kitongo, the Bronxville Mainsprings Ambassadors decided that we want to help the girls in any way we can.
For over a decade, Mainsprings has provided refuge and a quality education for hundreds of girls. Mainsprings recently opened up their second campus in the village of Kahunda and is already providing a safe and loving home for 16 young girls.
We are now raising money for their Early Childhood Center at Kahunda so that these new girls can benefit from a great education as well. Since we cannot buy bricks and ship them to Tanzania, we are selling virtual bricks to help raise funds. By purchasing a brick, you are not only changing the lives of girls stuck in the cycle of poverty, but you are changing the world for more generations to come!
Our goal is to raise $80,000! A full brick is $200, however, any donation is valuable to the construction of the new school.
Penny by penny and brick by brick, we can all make a difference.
"Mainsprings offers hope to girls who might otherwise have nothing. This hope showed me how invaluable Mainsprings is in the lives of its girls, and how unforgettable it is now in mine."
-Tim Atkeson, sophmore at Bronxville
"I think what Mainsprings is doing is so special because it really is changing these girls lives. It's obvious from the moment you step on campus and see the girls' smiles that they are happy; they have a home, a family, and a future."
-Sasha Paradise, junior at Bronxville
