Sunday School Fundraising
This year our Sunday School children are continuing to collect returnable, recyclable containers. They wish to help send three of our youth to Canada Youth 2018, July 2-7 in St. Catherine’s, Ontario. CY2018 is a national Presbyterian gathering for over 400 youth, young adults and youth ministry leaders and will be held at Brock University. (Registration is $565 each, which covers food, lodging and programme expenses, but not travel.)
Sunday School Challenge: Digging Wells
For 2017 our Sunday School children collected returnable bottles and pop cans to raise money towards providing wells for clean water in Malawi.
Sunday School Challenge: Healthy Babies, Happy Moms
In previous years, our children’s support of PWS&D’s Sunday School Challenge: “Healthy Babies, Happy Moms” helped make lasting improvements to the health of women and children by contributing to improved access to health care, training birth attendants and teaching women how to better care for themselves and their children.
Sunday School Challenge: the Power of 50,000
Between 2011 and 2017, PWS&D’s Building Sustainable Livelihoods program* has been helping 50,000 Malawians learn the valuable life skills to break cycles of poverty.
In a desire to help, last year the children of our Sunday School undertook support of this program. Our contributions helped make a difference.
- Children will have the opportunity to go to school
- Young people will train for in-demand jobs
- Farmers will receive seeds to grow more food
- Women will join savings groups, receive small loans and start their own businesses
Together, the Power of 50,000 provides for their families and improves the lives of everyone around them.
