Help us raise 50k to build a Sustainable Practices Education Centre for our children at Rainbow Ridge – Communities Assist!

Our vision for our first SPEC is to offer affordable vocational education and training in permaculture, mechanics, computer skills, sewing, music and even yoga to the Kili Kids and the local community, to empower them so they can ultimately become self sustainable!

Funds raised from this Crowd Funding Campaign will go directly to the construction of the Eco Vocational Education & Training Center including ~ Earth works necessary for levelling and footings including hiring of necessary equipment and man power; ~ Materials for concreting, insulation, doors, windows, roofing, solar panels and flooring; ~ Local labour for reusing 4 onsite shipping containers as classrooms; You can see our draft plans for the Eco Vocational Education & Training Centre here.

Estimated to cost $50,000 AUD and… our target is to raise this $50,000 AUD by 31st January 2017!
