I am a member of Mom Bloggers for Social Good and Our second action campaign is launching today! This time we're raising awareness for our partner, Nyanya Project, a North Carolina non-profit organization that educates preschool children in Kibera, one of the largest slums in east Africa, and will be opening up a new preschool in the Rwandan countryside.
In order to continuing educating the youngest children, the Nyanya Project has set a goal to raise $20,000 by Mother's Day 2012. That is a mere $20 from 1000 people.
Please help spread awareness about their cause by tweeting:
Help the Nyanya Project educate preschool children in Kenya and Rwanda. Any little bit helps! http://bit.ly/xEmKk0 #socialgoodmoms
