    Many Ways to Give

    We believe that giving is an incredibly personal experience – and that’s why people choose to give in so many different ways. But deciding how to give can also be an overwhelming experience. We’ve compiled some of the most common ways that people choose to support refugees and the American Refugee Committee. Please use the information provided as a guide but know that at the American Refugee Committee we remain open to new and different ways of giving.

    Equipping one incredible Changemaker with the tools he needs to reach out

    Day 216

    Staying Connected

    Changemakers 365 is all about doing the doable. It’s about opening our eyes to the opportunities to make an impact in a person’s life with relatively few resources – and making change each and every day of the year.

    After two days with farmers who spend their time growing produce, today we’re with someone who is growing knowledge. His name is Prince.

    We first met Prince last year when we thanked him for his hard work educating young minds. And he’s never stopped being a force for education – but something was stopping his access to the rest of the world.

    When we sat down with Prince, he told us about an idea for change he had. A new phone. His current phone was broken – he could receive calls, but the screen was cracked, making email and texting impossible.

    Many people are interested in joining in to help out with his school, but he can’t connect with them.

    We wanted to be sure Prince had all the tools at his disposable to unleash his and other’s talent in Nakivale. So Zu and the crew headed to pick out a phone that could connect Prince to the world and improve the school!

    Prince was filled with gratitude upon receiving the phone! The smiles wouldn’t stop. “Thank you, thank you, now I can continue to reach out to my colleagues!” he said.

    There were hugs all around – and an easier way forward for Prince and his students.
