SERVICE PROJECTS

Helping Honduran Women
Waterhouse Ballroom 1
 
Honduras is one of the poorest countries in the world and education is a key out of poverty. For many young women in the country school is inaccessible for hygienic reasons. They do not have the supplies necessary to allow then to attend school or work when they are menstruating.
 
Participants will produce kits containing washable feminine hygiene products for under-privileged Honduran teenagers. These kits will allow the girls to attend school and work without restriction due to a lack of menstrual supplies, and they will also be taught to produce kits themselves. All materials will be provided and there are no special skills required.
 
Maximum 50 participants
Guatemala Literacy Project
Waterhouse Ballroom 2
 
Gautemala is one of the poorest, least educated countries in the western hemisphere. Four out of five indigenous Guatemalans live in poverty and the average indigenous adult has less than a fifth grade education. One third cannot read or write, they are illiterate. When a student starts in primary school they learn to read with the Spark Reading Program. 
 
Participants will fill pencil cases with  school supplies for the Kindergarten to Grade 6 students participating in the program. As well, we will be putting together Teacher Kits with basic teaching supplies to assist the teachers. All materials will be provided and there are no special skills required.
