Interested in organizations that empower change? Look no further than imagine1day, a dynamic non-profit organization of change makers supporting quality education in Ethiopia. imagine1day has a goal to provide all Ethiopians with access to quality education funded free of foreign aid by 2030. How do they plan on achieving this goal? They’ve designed an innovative fundraising movement called Creatribution (hard to say, easy to do). It encourages the global community to participate in social entrepreneurism by turning their passions and talents into a contribution. Through Creatribution, people are elevating their local communities while raising awareness and funds for education projects in Ethiopia.
Projecting Change is excited to have imagine1day as a co-promotional partner for this year’s festival. We speak with change maker Michelle Lazar to discuss more about the organization and her thoughts on social entrepreneurism and fundraising.
