Please read their story told by Nathan Nerland:
In sixth grade, my friend Carson Glore and I dreamed of becoming grade school teachers just like Mr. McLean & Ms. Rott and hoped for classrooms next to each other so we could work together the rest of our lives.
Things changed that year and those dreams reshaped the future of hundreds of people’s lives for years to come. As many of you know, in 2009 I found an organization called Build Africa who’s main focus is to work with rural areas of Uganda and Kenya to combine learning and earning opportunities which offer children and their families long-term solutions to poverty.
The moment I found them, I knew this was the perfect way for me to help carry on Carson’s legacy. I continued to save, continued to dream, and on September 1, 2011, I made a commitment to Build Africa to follow through on this goal. I can’t do it without your support, so I hope throughout the following pages you become as inspired as I am to help make this goal a reality.
