Walk For A Child: April 28,2019


Walk for a Child


Sierra Leone global immersion program

This year, SLFND has partnered with The Blake School to create a  Sierra Leone Global Immersion Program for Blake students. The faculty chaperones, the students, with the support of the Community Service Board and the Office of Equity and Community Engagement at Blake, and together with the Board of Directors of Sierra Leone Foundation for New Democracy are planning a week of awareness raising and fund-raising activities. The week will culminate in a walk-jog-run fundraising event on the afternoon of Sunday April 29 to which  everyone is invited. The funds are to help to cover the final costs of the construction labor and materials for Sierra Leone's first village preschool being built in the village of Mondema-in Sierra Leone. The funds will also support a nature based children's playground and two stoves for our newly built smoke free kitchen that will serve 215 children and 30 workers per day. We have set a goal of $12,000. 

Join us at Blake's Northrup Campus on April 29th  at 1 pm to learn more about Sierra Leone, Blake's Global Immersion trip, and SLFND. Then, we'll take a Walk for A Child through the neighborhood and around Lake of the Isles. We'll end the day, with good food, music and community celebration.
