A note from Raakhi
This ARCHIVE project is probably the simplest project they have ever done. Replace floors. Save lives. I'm starting this campaign because I trust in ARCHIVE's approach, I trust in ARCHIVE's financial model and I trust in ARCHIVE's project partner - ADESH. ARCHIVE is rightly targeting one of the poorest minority communities in Bangladesh and your donation will be translated directly into long-lasting improvements in the day-to-day lives of boys, girls, mothers and fathers in Savar village.
Anything you can give - from 50p to £50 will help achieve my £300 target!
Did you know that every 5 seconds, a child under the age of five dies from preventable causes? Diseases like diarrhea are common all over the world — let’s be honest, we’ve all been there. But without adequate resources, like a clean and safe home, a common case of diarrhea can be fatal.
It is a heartbreaking reality. It is an enormous barrier to poverty reduction. The U.N. Millenium Development Report recently released the news that the Goal to Reduce Childhood Mortality by 2015 is struggling to meet its target achievements.
It is time to look to new solutions — simple solutions — that can save lives. Flooring projects, such as replacing dirt with concrete can reduce childhood diarrhea and parasites by nearly 50%. Just by replacing the floor. And it only costs $500.
I know there are a lot of great charities out there. I’ve created my own fundraiser for ARCHIVE Global’s High Fives Campaign because I believe that a child’s home should support his or her growth and development, not undermine it. Preventing childhood death is as simple as replacing dirt floors with concrete floors. I hope you will join me by giving whatever amount you can. It doesn’t take much.
For every $500 raised a family in Bangladesh will receive a new concrete floor and a solid foundation for a healthy future.
Thank you for your support and for helping give our children a healthy future!
