On Wednesday February 3rd, Legendary Bingo night at Hamburger Mary's raised $1,500 to benefit The Niapele Project. It was a packed house at this fun event and good times were had by all.
Los Angeles friends and supporters of Niapele: here is your first opportunity in 2010 to come play with us!

This Thanksgiving, we at Niapele are taking a moment to be thankful for the little signs of big progress.
And thankful to YOU, our supporters, who make all achievements possible.
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.
On October 1 2009, The Niapele Project and its partner the Carolyn Miller School began serving meals to the school's students. Following months of hard work and determination on the part of the school and our staff on the ground (Megan and Henry), we're really happy to bring you this exciting news!
Currently, the program is serving 332 students, teachers and staff:
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.
