Everyone at Gua Africa would like to thank the fantastic students and staff at Christ the King School, in Ontario, Canada for their fundraising efforts. In the past few months a group of Grade 7 and 8 students formed the Lenten Project and raised money for Gua Africa in many different ways, including building piggy banks which were put in every classroom throughout the school.
Some of the students were even interviewed by local media and spoke of their passion and dedication to raising both money and awareness about the issue of child soldiers and South Sudan in particular.
All together the Lenten Project students raised a whopping $1,247! This money will go directly towards Gua Africa's work to increase access to education for the people of South Sudan. We would like to thank every individual student, staff member, family member and the entire Christ the King School community who took part in any of these fundriasing efforts. We couldn't do what we do without your support.
