According to Unicef, there are an estimated 58 million primary school-age children who are not currently in school. Standing behind the belief that education is a basic human right, and not a privilege, StudentUniverse has partnered with Me to We (an innovative social enterprise that provides people with better choices for a better world offering socially conscious and environmentally friendly products as well as life-changing volunteer experiences to developing communities around the world) on the Fuel Education campaign to provide education in parts of the world where it isn’t currently available. The Fuel Education campaign is more than just an opportunity to experience new places, it is about being an active participant in making the world a better place.
This could be your opportunity of a lifetime.
We’re hosting a contest to send three students on a trip to Rajasthan, India. The winners will travel to Udaipur, one of Rajasthan’s seven divisions, on a service mission to help build a school and immerse themselves in the local culture.
Udaipur is often called the “city of lakes,” but, despite the region’s vibrant culture, it’s literacy rates are 11% lower than India’s country-wide average. Even worse, there is a huge discrepancy between male and female literacy in the region; while three quarters of Udaipur’s men are literate, less than half of the region’s women can read or write. Compare this to 99% literacy among both men and women in the United States.
Now through April 8th, you can enter to win a chance to go on this once-in-a-lifetime trip. We are asking students to submit a 30-second video explaining what it would mean to them to “fuel education” in Rajasthan, India. Three lucky winners will be chosen by a panel of judges for this amazing experience.
