Thanks to everyone who supported our Geography Cares effort on January 30 . Our chili sales raised $205.00 towards building schools in Pakistan. Donation will be made on the department’s behalf.
DIL educates and empowers underprivileged students, especially girls, by operating student-centered model schools in remote areas of Pakistan. DIL’s holistic program includes curriculum enhancement initiatives, computer labs, libraries, reading programs and extracurricular activities which enrich the students’ school experience.
A big thanks goes out to Sandy and Kevin for making BOTH a vegetarian and a meat chili for selling the chili, to Tania for lending us the stoves, to Bret and Tania for helping us set up, to Jeanne and Mimi for advertising the event. It was a great time effort by all.
