As you may or may not know, the cost of travel to the various countries to deliver our workshops is the largest cost of each program (accounting for more than 50% of the total cost). Our volunteers are responsible for their own travel costs. To help alleviate some or most of their cost, EBB is part of the Aeroplan pooling program. Using the link below, you, people you know, your students and so on, can solicit donations of Aeroplan miles to be donated to the EBB account. To put things in perspective, if 10 people donated 10,000 Aeroplan miles each, that would be enough for one teacher to travel to one of our programs in East Africa!
Also, your DONATED MILES make it possible to bring African experts and education advocates to the world stage to give voice to their critical role in closing the global education divide.
Remember this is Aeroplan miles and not Air Miles. Spread the word to all your friends too!
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Please note that there are no tax receipts issued for donated Aeroplan Miles.
