A final push for Peace Corps Project Donations

Hi everyone,

Only $500 to go!

I am making this blog post to notify everyone that one of our best
friends and fellow Peace Corps Volunteer, Brandon Lawson, is $500 away
from fulfilling his project to provide 1000 latrines to an
under-served area of Botswana. From Hayley's and my perspective, this
project is one of the most important and immediately impacting
projects that a Peace Corps Volunteer has undertaken to improve the
public health of a community in Botswana.

A clean place to go to the bathroom is essential to protecting
people's health, and before the project started the area has only a
couple of latrines for the entire village of hundreds of people. Thus,
most people just resorted to using the bushes. And overtime, this has
become the cause of many health issues in the area.

Partnering with the local government, residents, and this Peace Corps
grant operation through which you can make a direct donation, Brandon
has implemented a system in which the families dig their own latrine
holes to specific dimensions, and then a team of people will work with
the family to construct the latrine building structure. And that's all
it takes to completely change the health outlook for this community!

If you can spare any amount to help Brandon complete his project, this
is a great way to make a donation and have it make an immediate and
direct impact on the lives of people here!

Please share this link with anyone else that you think might be interested.

Only $500 to go!

Best Wishes,
- Michael
