Next Page, a non profit organized by a group of Wellesley High school students who aim to raise money for Yemeni and Tanzanian refugees in camps such as Al Kharaz, want your cans and bottles.
Their Can and Bottle Drive --on September 12th from 11-2-- will help the non-profit with their website, pay for flooding equipment in Yemen, and vocational training for refugees in Tanzania. There are many other ways to support this organization so please follow them @OfficialNextPage.
How did this come about? The founder, Ela Eryilmaz, felt the need to take action after seeing refugees’ struggles first hand. She has since become part of a program connecting teens from the US and from the Middle East and North Africa countries to talk about global issues. It was in this program that she met Mohammed who shared his story of how he fled from Somalia to Yemen. She also spoke with refugees from Tanzania in an effort to understand their needs.
