Girls Education

The movement for girls education is growing significantly within our community, and we've got many exciting plans for the future! I'm hoping to expand into other communities in Australia and share the message of educating girls with as many people as possible. We've held screenings of the feature film Girl Rising to raise awareness and funds for the girls education movement in my community. I've also supported Offspring - a organisation building a rehabilitation shelter for female victims of human trafficking in India.

Bridges Sandwich Making 2015

We chose World Service Day for our sandwich making day date and were able to make 42 meals, including; fruit, chips/pretzels, cookies, drinks, napkins, and turkey/ham sandwiches. These lunches will be distributed to homeless people in New York City.

Wildlife conservation education and wildlife habitat creation

The project is an ongoing one over the long term, it will never be finished! so this is just an update on a few steps forward, both my own and those of several young leaders in Puerto Lopez who work with children and youth groups and with whom I occasionally meet and share ideas and coordinate events. It was early April when I sent my project hopes, right? Since then, the first step was the cleanup day April 22nd organised by Sheyla's youth group Puerto Lopez Limpio!

Our Environment: Mangrove Restoration

I am most pleased to report that the Mangrove Nebeday project was a resounding success, and the children and I were able to raise more money than projected. We had a grand celebration at the 5th Annual Robo Expo, where parents, teachers, and classrooms all enjoyed viewing the environmentally purposed robots made from recycled parts, a poetry tree, and computer animated movies of each robot.

Kendall's Birthday

All the kids had a great time, and we collected two car loads of toys and games for the children at the hospital.
