The Reading University Creating Better Futures Society is a fundraising and advocacy society in aid of the Reading based charity, Creating Better Futures. CBF support and sponsor orphans and vulnerable children in Zimbabwe to go to school. The society will involve meeting on a two-weekly basis to socialise and discuss fundrasing ideas and opportunities, with at least 1 big fundraising event each term, with all members involved in the organisation and participation of the event. If individual members want to fundraise on behalf of CBF, then the society can support them in doing so. The meetings will be relaxed and fun, with the aim of getting like-minded people together, all in aid of a great cause.
CEO and co-founder of the charity, Dorothy Dix, was born and raised in Zimbabwe and received a sponsorship to go to school. After excelling academically, she received a scholarship to come to the University of Reading, where she is now a distinguished alumni. CBF is Dorothy's way of giving back the same gift she was given as a child- the gift of education. The society can help Dorothy on her mission to get as many children in Zimbabwe as possible into education and out of the poverty trap.
