"Walking in Their Shoes" Fundraising Walk
It's difficult to imagine our school days without yellow school busses and hot lunch, yet this is the daily reality of students living in Kamenica, Bosnia. Join us to "walk in their shoes" to raise funds for these students, and spread awareness of educational inequality around the world.
Emina Halilovic, Carroll University senior and Bosnian-American, Carroll University Pre-College Programs, and Pi Lamda Phi are coming together to sponsor the third annual "Walking in Their Shoes: Going the Extra Mile for Children's Education."
A 2014 trip to Bosnia prompted Emina to reflect on all of the opportunities that she has gained since moving to Waukesha from Kamenica, leaving her with a desire to find a way to give back to her home community. Now in its third year, "Walking in Their Shoes" works to create a mutually beneficial connection between Emina's two hometowns. Carroll students and Waukesha residents have the chance to learn about education inequality on a global and local scale while raising money for scholarships for students in Kamenica. Additionally, high school students participating in Project Pioneer, Carroll's Saturday pre-college enrichment program, have teamed up with Emina to sponsor the walk as a part of their Global Youth Service Day project. The high school students gained vital skills in project organization and teamwork, and have had the opportunity to connect via videochat with the scholarship recipients in Kamenica to learn about their culture.
We're excited to see you on April 22 at Carroll University's Crofts Morava Pavilion to support students in Bosnia and raise awareness about education inequality worldwide.
Registration includes a t-shirt, water bottle and a Bosnian treat.
