Welcome to my fundraising page. I have been selected as a Cuso International volunteer.
Cuso International is a development organization that works to reduce poverty and inequality through the efforts of highly skilled volunteers, collaborative partnerships and compassionate donors.
I have volunteered with Cuso International before as a teacher trainer in Rwanda so I know, first hand, what a difference skilled volunteers can make in helping others improve their lives.This time I will be working with a local partner, AGAPE, in Shinyanga, Tanzania. Agape has opened a school which gives young girls a second chance at an education. These young people have been rescued from a child marriage or became pregnant while still in school. They are no longer allowed to attended regular secondary school. I will be teaching English and working with the teachers to help them improve their teaching skills, as well as developing a new practical teacher training curriculum for the school.
As part of my journey with Cuso International, I am fundraising $2000 to help sustain their vital work and enable them to mobilize volunteers, like myself. I hope you will consider making a gift today in support of my campaign. Together we can give hope and change lives!
Right now, for every $1 you donate the Canadian Government will provide $9. That means a $25 contribution becomes $250 and a $100 gift becomes $1000!
Thank you to all of you who have so generously donated to my fundraising campaign. Thanks to all the Islanders who bought raffle tickets from Marian, Trent Debbie, Paul, Sue, volunteers from the Colonel Gray Key Club and myself. Together we raised $675.00! Thanks to the Charlottetown Royalty Rotary Club and the Kiwanis Club of Charlottetown for their financial support. Thanks to my daughter, Suzanne, and her fellow teachers at Colonel Gray High School. I am glad you enjoyed the chili and biscuits. I certainly appreciated your support.To all my friends and family who contributed or helped me in any way to raise this money, I say Thank you.
Since 1961, Cuso International has been working to reduce poverty and inequality through the efforts of volunteers, partners, and donors. Each year Cuso International mobilizes hundreds of professionals who volunteer side-by-side with local partners to create positive and lasting change.
