The outpouring of generosity has been greatly appreciated from our organizers here in Canada and in Assam.
Peggy Carswell our lead volunteer for Fertile Ground has arrived in Assam, India and has started working with groups to distribute and use the donated cameras. Peggy says "In one town there is a group of kids that range in age from 5 to 15, are studying at English medium schools, and would LOVE to take part in our kids to kids program! The eldest - a 15 year old girl - has the support of her father and grandfather to learn how to use one of the cameras that has been brought with us so that she can collect images of life in that town- the market, schools, parks, families, etc."
This is great news as some of the youth from the Comox Valley do the same activity on this side of collecting images of their lives and home town. This images will be to send to these and other youth in our Assam, Kids to Kids, partners.
Kids to Kids mandate is to support and connect the younger generations around the planet to work for global sustainability and your generosity is helping to achieve that goal.
