I just wanted to let you know that my mom loved her cane; it is beautiful â€“ and thanks for the special attention/service you gave me to make it all happen!
Happy New Year!
Dear Ashley and Canes Canada,
Thank you for your silent auction donation to People for Progress Foundation's Harambee 2015 event in support of our educational and humanitarian aid programs. We had a very successful and enjoyable event which was well received by the full house who attended.
The hiking sticks and bear bells attracted a lot of attention and the people who acquired them were very happy and impressed with them.
Our educational programs enrich the lives of so many people Ã¢€â€œthe children, their families and their communities. They empower people, helping to break the cycle of poverty and improve quality of life.
All funds raised are being used to bring hope and opportunity to children who would otherwise not have the chance to attend school a beginning through our early childhood development school and continuing their education through our primary and secondary school student sponsorship programs. Our programs in turn create jobs for our teachers and staff and bring economic benefits to the entrepreneurs and businesses in the communities.
We are embarking on a program to provide scholarships to students in Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. These scholarships will empower students in their studies by enabling them to attend schools outside the camp increasing their chances of continuing their educations at a post-secondary level.
Attached is a copy of our Fall/Winter 2015 Progress Report. Updates on our programs are posted on our Facebook page and our website which contains more detailed information on our programs. We hope to be able to continue sharing future updates and Progress Reports with you along with information on upcoming events.
Our vision is to impact the communities where our educational programs operate and to empower individuals as future leaders.
Your support and contributions to our programs is deeply appreciated. Without that support People for Progress Foundation would not be able to enrich the lives of children, families and communities.
Thank you for your contribution and support and for the joy and hope it brings to the children and their families.
People for Progress Foundation (PFPF)
