In other to accomplish our 2020 goal of launching this foundation and our first ongoing project that was aimed at supporting education in the Balefang community, the SEF team launch a go fund me event early in the year that return a little under $1500. The Sonna Etienne family member added to the funds to execute all the various projects of 2020: Recognition Award Ceremonies, Disaster Relief Sensibilization Campaign, Creation of the Foundation with exemption status, development of its website and social presence.
Now, for the 2021 supported causes, we are anticipating a need of over $50,000 to execute on most causes outlined under our Upcoming causes section. The following fundraising initiatives are being developed and driven by the SEF team to raise required funds. Please help raise awareness through ours and your social platform:
