How a $10 Bracelet Makes a Major Impact

100% of online donations are used for school fees and leadership training for youth in Guatemala and Zimbabwe. However, most of our funds are raised through the Yuda Bands project by selling Yuda Band bracelets for $10 to U.S. students. 75% of the money raised through Yuda Bands sales directly supports our mission while the other 25% allows us to offer free participation in the Yuda Bands project. Through the Yuda Bands project we’ve been able to sponsor thousands of years of education. Learn more about the breakdown of the $10 bracelet below:
