International Projects

The “SCHOOL PROJECT” – Colombia:

Recommended by one of our members, this project supports two girls by the name of Maron and Sara. They are in elementary school. This school is situated in a rural area outside Medellin, Colombia. The funds donated by our club are used for the school’s food program, so Maron and Sara are able to eat breakfast and lunch every day. Any additional funds are used for their uniforms & other much-needed supplies.

Recently, on the occasion of her 50th birthday, our member requested funds in lieu of gifts from family and friends that were attending her birthday party in Bogota, Colombia. She immediately put the donated funds (some of which were from our club members in Peterborough) toward the purchase of two new computers, printers, software and peripherals for the students to use.
