Mizzou students aim to change lives
Three Mizzou students are on a mission to create educational opportunities for children abroad.
Bree Dunn, Kyle Kilroy and Libby Wolfe have founded Mizzou for Malawi, part of the Change A Life Foundation fund-raising program affiliated with the orphan-advocacy Christian organization C3 Missions International. The students’ goal is to raise $25,000 to build a school near Salima, Malawi, in southeastern Africa. The school would operate as part of a larger C3-planned village containing medical facilities, economic-development resources and housing for more than 600 orphaned children.
By the end of November, Mizzou for Malawi had raised more than $12,000 by holding fund-raising parties, collecting change and selling T-shirts.
