(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Qatar Foundation's Academic Bridge Programme (ABP) has raised QR56,000 for Qatar Charity (QC).



The money will go towards building an elementary school in Somalia. This is the second time ABP raised funds for a school. In 2011, it raised QR30,000 for Reach Out To Asia to rebuild a school in Pakistan.



Fund-raising started at the beginning of the 2013-2014 this academic year when Moza Al Boainain, Assistant Director for Students Services, ABP, sought the help of her popular 'Social Services and Volunteering' club to raise funds to build a school in Somalia.



The school was identified by her and by QC as a viable charity project.



With the help of the club and the Student Services Department activities were launched to raise awareness among ABP students and faculty about the needs of others and to encourage people to donate to the cause. A bake sale and ABP Charity Carnival were held on March 30 at Las building in Education City



Several students, faculty members and staff and their families attended, along with some P alumni




ABP also welcomed BeIn Sport Broadcaster and Ambassador of QC and Audi, Mohammed Saadon Al Kuwari.



He gave a short motivational speech about his experience with charity work and the importance of giving back to the community



Among those who donated to the 'Build a school in Somalia' were Mamig Lebanese and Armenian Restaurant at Katara and Red Velvet Cupcakery, also at Katara, which donated prizes, and Qatar Star Catering, which donated lunch boxes



The carnival was packed with games and activities, such as face-painting, a mega slide, food and gifts, flowers and hand crafted boxes and cards made by ABP students. The collaborative effort not only achieved its goal of raising a significant amount of money but also provided everyone with a day of fun, games, good food, and enjoyment.



The fundraiser was a learning curve for ABP students. By getting them involved in a charity fundraising campaign, it is hoped that this experience will be the first of many in giving others the gift of bringing education to those less fortunate
