The sixth grade ambassadors focused their efforts on Zimbabwe and Belize because of the direct connection that has been established between BCMS and schools in the two countries through the Global Coalition. Many of the sixth graders have already communicated with children in the two communities their donation will help through the Global Coalition.
They chose to donate the money through World's Window because it is a local non-for-profit with extensive connections in Zimbabwe and Belize that sends the money and supplies along with volunteers directly to the communities that they are assisting.
"We are very proud to work with Bethlehem Central Middle School students," said Schmehl. "We see many great leaders in this school. The children in Zimbabwe will be so very happy to see these donations and know that someone on the other side of the world cares about their education."
