Building a Brighter Neinas

 
Help us transform the lives of children in Detroit!
 

the project

The transformation of three abandoned lots into a safe place where children and their families can play, grow, and dream!

The friends of Neinas are changing lives by changing those abandoned lots into a soccer field, a place for students to display art, and a place where the community can come together!

The students, with the help of their teachers, have begun dreaming about all that those lots could be!

the steps

Step 1. Acquistion of Land

Step 2. Grade the Land

Step 3. Build soccer field, recycling bins/trash cans

Step 4. Add student Art Exhibits, picnic tables, rain water barrels

Step 5.  Plant butterfly garden, little library

why we’re doing it

In the past eight years, the community around Neinas, the school, and parents have worked really hard to get three blighted buildings down that were not only an eye-sore to the neighborhood but a danger to the children.

In 2015, a collaboration of people came together, and started planning all that those lots could be. The students started dreaming! The students took surveys, compiled that data, built models of their dreams, and presented to Universities and other donors. While all that happened, the Friends of Neinas, worked on being able to acquire land, put together budgets, and cut through red tape.

The planning is complete and now we are ready to move forward with those plans!

In order to make these dreams a reality for this community, we need $20,000!
