Fall Newsletter 2014



It’s hard to believe the summer is already over, and all our students are back to school for another year. This year, we have added the Lira, Uganda Education Center to our growing numbers. It is exciting to reach into new areas and give these students an opportunity to reach their potential, and hope for their future.

But we can’t do it alone! We need your help to fill up the future for our students.

Our Chapters have been busy this summer as well – getting ready for their annual events!

Okanagan Valley – Test of Humanity, Sept 21st
Calgary – Hope For Tomorrow, Nov 5th
Medicine Hat – Beyond Belief, Nov 19th


We have had some amazing volunteers travel with us to Ethiopia and Uganda this year. Our Global Youth Citizen expedition was a wonderful experience for our students in Ethiopia, and the young adults who traveled together.

Expedition volunteers can now travel to one, two or all three of the countries we work in: Ethiopia, Uganda, and Malawi. For more information, or to start an application, contact Deb.

This summer was full of activity and fun! We had young adults involved in our Global Youth Expedition, received profiles on the 50 children who are joining our program in Lira, Uganda this fall!
