Sam Chandler of Rumson, New Jersey, graduated from Rumson Fair Haven High School as a member of the National Honor Society in 2016. He now attends the Blair Academy, a boarding school in Blairstown, New Jersey, where students can pursue a college preparatory education. Throughout his high school years, Sam Chandler participated in many charitable activities, including ChangeALife Uganda.
ChangeALife Uganda works to help orphaned and disadvantaged children in that country. The organization strives to improve the lives of children and their families through access to quality healthcare and education, along with programs to generate income. Their education programs are designed to increase attendance in schools by providing more well-trained teachers, safer sleeping arrangements, and free tuition for students who are in financial need.
Bucks For Beds is a program which helps children whose homes are distant from school to live in the dormitory. With their physical needs of food and shelter met in the dormitories, students are more able to focus on academics.
