Fundraising for Children in Poverty
In Australia we often take for granted that we are given the opportunity to be educated; in fact, it's illegal not to send your child to school. All over the world, there are many countries which through over-population or because of the family's location in regard to major cities, do not have the access to provide education for children. Many children are required to earn a living at a very young age and therefore education is not deemed important.

SCOOP (Support Children Out of Poverty) is the Australia division of The SCOOP Foundation, which is an Irish-based non-profit organisation. The foundation's purpose is to raise money supporting organisations in Cambodia and India to build schools for kids living in poverty. Regular feedback from Cambodia and India ensure donors and supporters are involved in all steps of the projects through the stories of the children.
Maya from the Jeevan School in India was living in a tent at four years of age. Through fundraising support, Maya is the first of her tribe to graduate from high school and finish her first year at teacher's college.
On Saturday 1st September 2018, SCOOP is holding a Quiz Night Fundraiser to help more children like Maya. This is a quiz night with a difference as Kahoots will be used to deliver the questions. Quiz enthusiasts are asked to have their phone or tablet with data, available to participate.
General admission is $15.00 per head and group bookings of a maximum of eight people will cost $110.00. Go to TryBooking.com to book your ticket.
The Quiz Fundraiser will be held at the JCR Room at St Catherine's College, 2 Park Road, Crawley. See you there.
