How Fundraising Works

buildOn gives you a life-changing opportunity to fundraise and travel to build a school in the developing world.

  • “Despite the fact that our [Nepalese] community had never met us, they welcomed us in, no questions asked. Now not only did we share a passion for building the school, we also shared meals, dances, conversations (some translated, some practically mimed) and love.”
