At One Day’s Wages we love partnering with schools, classes and service clubs who want to learn more about extreme global poverty and take action. Sponsoring a One Day's Wages cause is a great way to both raise awareness about extreme poverty while also making a big impact.
Why Sponsor a One Day's Wages Cause?
Share about an issue of extreme global poverty with students, raising awareness at your school and igniting action at a young age. Choose from any of our causes and we can provide you with educational resources.
Students can volunteer through a campaign, event, or club, and use these activities as school credit OR service hours. We can provide volunteer hours log sheets and letters of recommendation.
Raise funds for an issue of extreme global poverty within your class, school and in your community. Pick from our list of causes, set a goal, create a page on our site and start sharing!
How Your School, Class or Club can Sponsor a Cause
1. In-Class Projects: break the class up into groups and have each group pick one of our causes. Then research, write a paper, create a presentation, or find another creative way to help students learn and teach their peers.
2. ODW Club: start an ODW club on campus that aims to educate and raise awareness. Register your club with your school, pick a cause, set a goal for the year, create a club page on our website and share.
3. School-Wide Event: events are great ways to bring an entire class, grade or school together with a common purpose. They provide team-building and motivate students to learn and get involved.
4. Community-Wide Event: just like school events, community events have the opportunity to bring entire neighborhoods and families together. Host a block party, partner with local businesses, or just invite the community to your school event!
5. Long-Term Campaign: if there is an issue of extreme global poverty that your school really wants to dive deeper into, then a long-term campaign is the perfect opportunity. Combine any of the above ideas and go deep!
