How student groups can transform broken lives
Education transforms lives. As a student, you can help break the cycle of poverty and abuse.
Become an advocate. Engage your friends or organization. Support a child in one of Hagar’s Recovery Programmes, and change a life.
Below are some steps for setting up Hagar fundraising in your school.
Introduce Hagar to the staff
This can be done by inviting a guest speaker from Hagar, or contact us for brochures and a promotional DVD you can use.
Select a fundraising event
As a school decide what fundraising event you would like to complete. Some examples of events that could be run during a school day may include a fun carnival day, a community picnic or a fun run. After school events could include a barn dance, quiz night or talent show with funds raised going to Hagar.
Informing the school community
At the beginning of the term that you will be fundraising in, write about Hagar in the newsletter and let parents know that the school will hold a fundraising event with money raised going to Hagar. This will encourage discussion about Hagar and promote awareness of the work of Hagar.
Incoporate Hagar into school curriculum
Get teachers to plan a few age appropriate lessons during the term for their students about Cambodia.These could include the history of Cambodia, culture, food, traditions, etc. Also include the history of Hagar and what Hagar does. This keeps Cambodia fresh in their minds and gives them a good idea about what they are raising money for.
