On Friday, October 2, Endeavour welcomed Frank Woitera of Uganda to our school. He spoke to the sixth, seventh, and eighth graders about the 52 Kids Foundation and his life in Uganda. He was joined by John Koerner of Shelburne and Heartworks Preschool “graduate” and now a high school senior, Camille Bartsch, who shared their experiences with the program. The organization's mission is to "Teach Ugandan children to live positively without aid." They started with children orphaned by AIDS, and have already sent many students to professional education, including nursing school and one is now attending University.
The Endeavour students recently raised $233 at a bake sale and they donated all of the proceeds to the 52 Kids Foundation! The plan is orchestrate a pen pal relationship and Skype connection with students in Uganda and at Endeavour.
