During the 2022-2023 service year, NJCKI raised over $7,000 for UNICEF’s Brick x Brick project which aims to build recycled schools for children in Côte d’Ivoire. Our goal for the 2023-2024 service year is to raise $8,000 for this project.
What is Brick x Brick?
The money you raise will help support UNICEF to stimulate a recycling economy in Côte d’Ivoire by and for women. The plastic waste they collect will be manufactured into bricks at a Conceptos Plasticos factory in Africa. These bricks will be used to build classrooms for some of the 1.6 million children – mostly girls – who are currently out of school. It doesn’t stop there. You will also help UNICEF train teachers, provide school supplies, and support improved hygiene and infection prevention and control. All of this will have an immediate and transformative impact on the lives of children and women in Côte d’Ivoire.
Thanks to you, children will grow up healthier and better educated. We hope your club will join in this exciting project.
