Today's meeting was held at the Comfort Inn, Bayers Lake. Our Club inducted one new member, and our special guest spoke about a truly inspirational children's education project in Kiritu, Kenya.

Our special guest for today was Dr Jamie Metsala, professor at mt St Vincent University here in Halifax. Her presentation was about the Muungano - Partners for Education in Africa project. Located in Kiritu, Kenya, the Muungano School for Children with Special Needs provides life saving support to children in the form of nutrition, medical care, education and TLC. Muungano, translated from Swahili, means "union" or "alliance" or, We Are All Together. 

This facility, started and supported by students of the Jeanne Sauvé Public School in London, Ontario, and one of their teachers, gives much needed support to children with physical, intellectual and emotional challenges. Read More...
