Chris Hadfield spreads hope to Kenyan communities
Students from Chris Hadfield Public School raised over $5900 in support of developing Kenyan communities. The funds were raised through bi-weekly popcorn days with all proceeds going towards Creation of Hope, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting impoverished communities abroad.
The proceeds will help support a community located in Kikima, Kenya. Livestock such as goats and chickens will be bought for students and their families to provide them with food and an income source. The school also raised enough funds to keep the local orphanage and school in operation, support a clean water well project and cover over a month worth of food distribution to the community.
