COVID-19 Update: Traction on Demand goes to Africa in support of One Girl Can
Earlier this year, a group of 10 Traction on Demand colleagues partnered up with One Girl Can, an incredible organization that builds schools, gives scholarships, and provides mentorship for girls living in extreme poverty in Africa. Our group committed to a mission of raising $65,000 to sponsor 10 girls' university educations. We also planned to travel to Kenya to help facilitate the One Girl Can Leadership Conference this coming September.
In light of COVID-19 and the measures the world is taking to contain the virus, we have made the tough decision to postpone our trip to Africa. We are working very closely with One Girl Can to shift our planned initiatives in Kenya to a future date. Having said that, we will continue to stay committed to the 10 girls we are sponsoring. While our trip is canceled for now, we will continue our efforts in raising funds for our sponsored girls' college education in time for the next intake.
To achieve this, we are shifting our goal to $35,000 by September
2020, with the intent of looking at our full goal at a future date
when the dust settles. We very much appreciate everyone who has
supported our cause so far. We are in the thick of evolving updates
around COVID-19, so we are holding off any physical fundraising events
at this time to help flatten the curve, but will keep this donation
Original (Pre-Covid-19) Fundraising Mission:
Traction on Demand wants to help One Girl Can further their goals to build, educate, and mentor by raising $65,000. This $65,000 fund will sponsor 10 girls' University educations and provide them each with a laptop. Further, this funding will allow 10 Traction team members to speak about Salesforce at the One Girl Can Leadership Conference in Nairobi, Kenya in September 2020. Tractionites will provide the attendees of the One Girl Can conference with an overview of the career opportunities available within the Salesforce cloud-based ecosystem as well as a demonstration on how to train themselves on the platform.
