Shootings in Garissa, Kenya

Our dear missionary friend, Joan Ward, just forwarded details of yet another fatal attack in Garissa Town, Kenya.

Suspected to be an act of terrorism, three soldiers were shot dead by unidentified assailants, leaving the town under heavy military security.

Our hearts and prayers go out to our friends in Garissa, especially to the children we know and love so dearly.

In July, 15 were killed in raids on churches, and on November 5, a grenade attack on a Garissa church killed one police officer and left 11 injured.

First International Day of the Girl Child

Oct 11 2012 – The United Nations first International Day of the Girl Child

This day is set aside to create awareness of the abuses and stresses many young girls around the world face each day.

In particular, this year’s theme is focused on ending child marriage, and stressing education as one of the strongest strategic measures to have in place to protect girls from harmful practices.

Staying in school builds a foundation for a healthier and more equipped girl to succeed in society. Many girls in third world countries, don't get this chance.

Here at the Julia Project Foundation, 75% of the students sponsored through the Laurie St Pierre Scholarship Fund, are girls.

We salute the United Nations in this effort.

Happy Thanksgiving

We have so much to be thankful for, here, in this great nation of Canada.

Today, and tomorrow, many families will gather together to share a bounty of food, exchange warm stories as they get caught up on each others busy lives.

In the midst of all the celebrating, let's reflect on 'our kids' who, because of HIV Aids, might not have a family to share with. They might not have a bountiful meal - in fact, perhaps no meal at all, and no warm stories.

Through our connections with them, I believe we are their 'far away' family, and we remember them with thanksgiving today.

We remember our donors with thanksgiving. Every little bit that we put together, makes something bigger:

big enough to put a child in school

big enough to put a meal in their stomach

big enough to know they're not forgotten and alone

big enough to spread some thanksgiving their way

Thanks for all you do to help us/them. Together we can make a difference!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at The Julia Project Foundation!
