Classrooms Without Borders

Upcoming Events

Bringing Israeli Innovation to Africa

Monday, January 1, 2018

This season, let's come together to share our holiday light with those living in darkness.

At Classrooms Without Borders we believe every individual has what it takes to be a superhero.

You don't need brute strength, supersonic speed or any special gadgets to save lives and make the world a brighter place for all. All you need is compassion and a keen intolerance to indifference.

Therefore we have decided to bring the Pittsburgh community together to raise funds for Innovation: Africa.

You see, nearly 620 million people in Africa live without electricity. That means babies are born by the light of kerosene lamps, it means children can't study after sunset, it means there's no refrigeration for lifesaving medicines and vaccines and it means that people drink dirty water because they don't have the power they need to pump clean water up from below ground.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

Innovation: Africa brings Israeli innovation to African villages, and Classrooms Without Borders aims to raise $18,000 to help bring solar energy to a community in need. This amount will provide enough solar panels to power an entire medical center, school, or orphanage.

This season, let's come together to share our holiday light with those living in darkness. All it takes is a community of superheros.

                                     Up, up and away Pittsburgh!
