October 2017 Give-Away Campaign
In October 2017 - the Brighter Brains Institute will launch a "Give-Away" Campaign for Kanungu Humanist Schol.
We will raise money via a GoFundMe and donate it to 4 different groups:
- Students who have demonstrated excellence in writing an essay about themselves and about humanism.
- Students who do not have money to pay for school tuition, because they are orphans, or their parents are poor.
- A poor one-parent household
- funds to expand the Kanungu Humanist School Library
This project was introduced by BBI President Karen Zelevinsky; she has had experience with this type of campaign before.
Cash transfers to the poor have been researched and found to be a very cost effective way to improve lives.
The advantage of this program versus something like GiveDirectly is that you know exactly who the money goes to: it's directed at families who are supportive of humanist values.
