School Nutrition Initiative - Update from the field

I've finally made it to Liberia, and visited the Carolyn A. Miller school (CAMES) in Paynesville, a suburb of Monrovia, yesterday. The school is tuition-free, and provides one of the only alternatives for vulnerable children whose families cannot afford to send them to school otherwise. CAMES offers education from kindergarten to 10th grade - some students in the higher grades are young adults who never had a chance to complete their primary education during the war.

Currently, the program is serving 332 students, teachers and staff:

Thank you Vancouver!

The "Paint for Food" event at Raw Canvas in Vancouver was a huge success! Thank you to all those who came out to support the School Nutrition Initiative - we had over 70 people in attendance, and raised about $4,000!

Funds raised will go towards providing tens of thousands of meals to the students of the Carolyn A. Miller School in Monrovia.
