Winning a DoSomething grant enabled me to donate a larger quantity of items to the three, rural Argentine schools I adopted. In addition to the $250 I received from DoSomething, I was granted $250 by my local 4-H club, and so I had 1500 Argentine pesos to spend on needed school supplies, textbooks, and other items related to personal hygiene.
Despite the multitude of obstacles I encountered as I attempted to establish reliable contacts with whom I could collaborate to institute my project, I was able to connect with three distinct rural schools throughout Argentina and send greatly desperately needed supplies, texts, and other goods. The students and their families were impacted positively by the donations I was able to provide them because without my help, students would be forced to go without consumable textbooks, library books, basic supplies, and dental hygiene items I sent. My project impacted approximately 200 students throughout Argentina.
