The Bucket List Family is Opening a School!

Hi everyone!

We’re Garrett & Jessica also known as The Bucket List Family. In August of 2015 we sold everything to travel world together as a family.

We made a special stop in Nepal to be work with the non-profit Effect.org, and joined their expedition to fight human trafficking. We learned about the tragedies of human trafficking and worked alongside local organizations to build technology to help end it. While we were there, we learned that education is the number one way to prevent girls from being trafficked. Schools not only give young women a place of safety, but they gain the education, confidence, and skills necessary to keep them safe.

Why schools?  

Over 2 million girls have been trafficked into prostitution in India.(1) When children are out of school they are especially vulnerable to trafficking(2). Education combats trafficking, breaks the poverty cycle and opens a world of employment opportunity. (3) Children are safer in school!

Effect.org has been opening schools in India since 2010, when their founder opened their first school in Bihar, India. Ever since, its been the mission of Effect.org to bring education to as many children as possible, starting with India.

What are we doing?

This month, we’re joining the Safe in School campaign – our goal is to raise $50,000 to fund an entire school in India! If we reach our goal, we’ll provide education for hundreds and change the lives of many many children!

How can you help?
