$7. That’s all it costs to buy a duck.
This is your day to make someone in Congo a lucky duck! Help us drum up support! See Afro contemporary dancer Lucky’s amazing leaps at the concert!
All you have to do is buy a concert ticket or make a tax deductible donation that can change the life of a Pygmy orphan in a remote village in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
There are 106 orphans in Lotumbe Village who have asked for our help to buy some ducks and fruit trees. Selling duck eggs and fruit as part of their innovative social enterprise will help these kids get to school – FINALLY! The kids are aged 6-18, and most have never gone to school – EVER. They just need a little bit of help from their friends, like:
· $ 3.50 for tuition (per year)
· $ 13.11 for school uniform
· $ 3.50 for teacher’s stipend (per year)
· $ 7 for one duck
· $ 1.50 for one fruit tree
· $ 27 for shared garden tools
Proceeds from the concert will go towards helping these kids meet their school attendance goal.
Concert for Congo ticket bookings can be made on www.trybooking.com/MQXI or ring Robyn on 0403 761 341.
Can’t come along to the concert? No worries! Online donations can be made to www.rawcs.org.au, Project 20 2013-14. Cheques may be made out to RAWCS Project 20 2013-14, and posted to RAWCS, PO Box 3168, Parramatta NSW 2124 (be sure to designate “Project 20 2013-14”).
