(KSL News) Talk about community service in action! A group of high school students are trying to raise money to build a school in Africa.

After their school postponed the project, the teenagers formed "Teens Helping Teens 2004" to finish the project by this summer's deadline.

The teens were out on the steps of the Delta Center yesterday collecting donations. And they were joined by tribal members who traveled from Africa to help in the fundraising effort.

Amy Burton/ Teens Helping Teens 2004: "We are so lucky to have schools here. When you see the Mossai tribe and when you see the poverty there, it's out of control."

The project has been approved by the African government. The teens hope to raise $50,000 by May 1st. If you're interested, call them at 544-1561.
