I am fundraising for my Global Outreach: Lithuania project. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated!

Hey Friends!

At the end of this upcoming May, I, along with my Global Outreach team, will be traveling to Lithuania for two weeks to work with the Auksuciai Foundation in the city of Kurnesai in northeast Lithuania.

Auksuciai is a non-profit group established to help small-scale farmers become self-sufficient and competitive. They do so through providing these farmers with technological opportunities and the necessary education to help them improve their crop yield. This organization is extremely important in Lithuania, as Lithuania is one of the many countries suffering from the global recession. Inflation has increased to the double digits and the annual household income has dropped by 17% in the past two years.

Fordham’s Global Outreach is a cultural immersion and service program that promotes the following pillars: community, spirituality, simple living, and social justice. Leading up to the trip, throughout it, and after, the focus will be to gain an understanding of, and deeper appreciation for, the struggles that people face every day.

The projected cost for participating in GO! Lithuania is $1,900. The experience that I will get from this is worth so much more (cheesy, but true) and I hope that with your help I will be able to cover some of the cost. Any donation, whether it be $5 (about the cost per hour) or $500, is greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much,

Solomia Zhownirovych
