Please join us in this exciting new campaign to send soccer balls to schools in Kenya as part of our group travelling to Kenya on January 22, 2016.
Soccer Balls for Kenya 2016!
In January, a group of nursing students from UPEI will be visiting Kenya as part of the 2016 volunteers with Farmers Helping Farmers. As part of their work, they will be talking about malaria prevention and handing out 2,000 mosquito nets at schools twinned through FHF with schools in Canada.
But what will be even more exciting for the school children in Kenya – the UPEI nursing students are bringing along some soccer balls to hand out at each of the eleven twinned schools!
Soccer Stop in Charlottetown is providing soccer balls to Farmers Helping Farmers at $10 each.
If you would like to sponsor one of these donations, you can drop by Soccer Stop, 411 University Ave, Charlottetown, PE C1A 4N7, Monday to Saturday, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
For each $10 donation, you can put your name on a soccer ball cutout to be displayed at the store to show your support for this wonderful project. (If you don’t want to use your name, put the name of someone you know who loves soccer –or Kenya!)
All the names will be entered in a draw for a Farmers Helping Farmers prize package.
And – best of all – you can check out the photos from Kenya of the soccer balls being handed out!
Asante – thank you – for your support!
