My Travel Story

     Hello, hello! How much do you know about the issue of Education? Education is the birthright of every child. However, over 124 million children and adolescents do not attend school. They are deprived of the opportunity to learn how to read, write, and build a stable future for themselves and the community they live in. Education is one of the most basic instruments in overcoming poverty. We should put more effort into helping those in need. It breaks my heart to think of how we are so privileged while there are children suffering. I am forever grateful for what I have been given, so I want to help those in need. 
       In my school, we are organizing a club called Tsuru, which means Crane in Japanese. The crane is a beloved creature in Japan and symbolizes peace, hope, and healing. We hope to be the cranes in many peoples' lives. We want to do this by raising awareness on the issue of education. We are also planning to go to an impoverished country and building a school for a community. I am very passionate about this topic and this trip. I really wanna help reduce the number of 124 million, but sadly, it requires a lot of money due to travel and airfare expenses. The money earned from this campaign will pay for these costs along with the money earned through fundraisers and personal expenses. Our team is putting in a lot of effort and time into making our dream a reality and hope to make lots of children smile.

The need for education is growing each day, so don't delay! :)
