Build-a-School Night 2023: On the Rise

Mwebele nyo!

Building Tomorrow raised a record-breaking $342,997 at Build-a-School Night 2023: On the Rise on April 28. These funds are equivalent to helping 34,299 children learn to read, write, and do basic math through our signature literacy and numeracy program, Roots to Rise.

We are grateful to our event attendees, sponsors, table sponsors, volunteers, auction item donors, and all who contributed to an awe-inspiring night celebrating the power of community-led learning, and for building important momentum as we set out to reach at least half a million learners by the end of 2025.

Thank you so much.
