At the end of the day..
It's not about what you have..
Or what you have accomplished..
It's about who you've lifted up..
And who you've made feel better..
It's about what you've given back!
Be the reason
Just over $1.00 from our Drop-In's concession goes towards our sponsored child. Youth Members exchange letters and drawings with Joshua several times a year.
Joshua lives in Northern Nicaragua. We have been sponsoring Joshua for several years now after our former Sponsor Child reached 18 and went into post-secondary training. Joshua is 10 years old and lives with his Mother and Father. He helps out at home by cleaning up his toys. Joshua is in Grade 4 and his favourite subjects are Mathematics and English. He assists with classroom duties and would like to be a police officer when he is done school.
Youth Members are encouraged to lend a helping hand to other groups and organizations.
Peace Crane Project
The Peace Crane Project invites every student on the planet to fold an origami crane, write a message of peace on its wings, then exchange it with another student somewhere in the world. The Project builds friendships, strengthens hand-eye coordination and writing skills, teaches geography, exposes students to new languages and cultures, and EMPOWERS YOUTH to make a difference in their community, country, and world.
Started in 2012, the Peace Crane Project now has over one million participants from over 154 million countries in the world.
Our Youth Members have spent many hours creating more than 50 beautiful, unique cranes to exchange with children around the world. In 2019, Group Group Youth exchanged their Peace Cranes with students from Greece.
This year (2023) we are exchanging our peace cranes with students from Blossom's Sam's Montessori Academy Oleh Delta state, Nigeria. This is very exciting and we are looking forward to receiving our Peace Cranes from across the world.
