Read about Henrique Te Veiga Winkel's volunteer experience.
By organizing an event guided by our toolkit, you help urgently spread the word about microfinance so more women like this small business owner can benefit.

250 million children get no education at all, and more than a billion people live on less than $1 a day.

You can play an invaluable role by holding a "friend"raiser, an event with family and friends, to spread the word about Learning Planet. Download our toolkit on how to organize a fun event while taking action to help all children have the opportiunities we've had.

Event Ideas
Your event can be a number of variations on a private house party. Below are just a few ideas:

Movie Night - Get together with friends and view a film produced in a developing country. Afterwards, discuss Learnign Planet and how the education each of you had, has made you the people you are.

Save Your Change for a child- Host a party where you and your guests agree to save your change for a month to help build a school or sponsor  some children. With sponsorship costing just 50 pounds a year, your change can have a huge impact on someone’s life,

Fundraise for a Race - Are you participating in a 5k run or bike race? Couple your efforts with raising money for LP and awareness to benefit all those less fortunate than ourselves.

Book Club - With your friends, read Three Cups of Tea, the story of Greg Mortenson, who has now built 53 schools in the wild frontier of Northern Pakistan, helping thousands of children get a balanced education - a vital bullwark against the spread of extremist madrassas. More essential reading>
