A Conversation of Global Change

6 Apr

There’s a new student organization at Ball State University called Building Tomorrow.

According to the World Bank, in order to accomplish the Millennium Development goal of providing Universal Primary Education for children worldwide by 2015, humanity must undertake the largest building project the world has ever seen – constructing more than 10 million new classrooms throughout 100 countries.

Building Tomorrow (BT) has joined in that task by empowering young people in the US to invest their time, talents, and resources in supporting the construction of primary-level academies throughout sub-Saharan Africa; each providing learning space for 325 children.

Joseph Kaliisa, BT’s Country Director, works directly with communities in Uganda, ensuring a cost and responsibility sharing model for the construction of each BT academy.

Through Joseph’s commitment to human rights and the rights of the children of Uganda, BT has successfully leveraged the power of community engagement: BT broke ground on its 10th academy in Uganda last summer.

The Building Tomorrow team at Ball State personally invite you to see Joseph Kalisa, Building Tomorrow Uganda Country Director, speak in Indianapolis on April 11, 2011 at 6 pm in The Anthenaeum Foundation. Following the event we will all grab a bite at Yatz! Don’t worry about travel, rides will be provided.

Email us at and let us know if we can count on seeing you at the event!

Let’s start building tomorrow together,

Kenzie, Katelin & Kelly
