BI Studentaksjonen is BI students social conscience. This is the students opportunity to contribute to something greater than ourselves - the ability to give children in poorer parts of the world an education, and a brighter future.
The focus of BI Studentaksjonen is that the funds collected goes towards education. This is because we value and understand the importance of higher education for students. With a common belief that education is the key to everything, it has been natural for us to choose Save the Children as our partner. Several years in a row we have organized various fundraising campaigns to raise money for Save the Children.
During the year we try to regularly come up with creative ways to raise money. We have also carried out various activities at school - auctions where lecturers and students have been auctioned, soccer tournaments, treasure hunt, charity concerts, waffle sales and Easter egg sales. Since 2007 we have contributed to help the schooling of children in Ethiopia, Nepal, Laos, Nicaragua and Cambodia, and we plan to continue to help many more needing children in other countries. Our goal is to become a leading charity project among students, and to build a lasting knowledge foundation.
