After traveling to several different Latin American countries and studying about developing nations in school, I started to learn and see for the first time what exactly is extreme poverty. And the one thing I've learned is that education is a key to ending it-- and in these developing nations I have met some of the kids most thirsty for education yet lacking the resources to get it. I would like to collect educational tools such as books, school supplies, ect. and distribute them to these places I have seen and these kids I have met that have changed my life. I have already started collecting books, however this grant would greatly help me get my project moving.
