Our Girls We Sponsor Through COEEF: Celebrate Education for Women
"We will continue our journey to our destination of peace and education. No one can stop us. We will speak up for our rights and we will bring change to our voice. We believe in the power and the strength of our words.Our words can change the whole world because we are all together, united for the cause of education. And if we want to achieve our goal, then let us empower ourselves with the weapon of knowledge and let us shield ourselves with unity and togetherness."
Montessori Community School donates to six beautiful young women through the Children of Ethiopia Education Fund. In celebration of International Women's Day, March 8th, we thought we would showcase our girls. In May, MCS does an annual "Fun Run" where we raise the funds to go toward these wonderful girls. We plan on sending letters to each lovely young women. In preparation for the "Fun Run" we encourage you to talk about the program with your students in supplement to what our teachers do to prepare our students to help give and donate. Perhaps, you can make your own cards and/ or send pictures with your students which they, in turn, can drop off to the MCS Office.
This program is about giving girls the opportunity to receive an education in a country where this opportunity is slim to none. Please discuss and think about the importance, value, and effects an education can hold for these girls and their families. Click the links to see full PDF and read their letters.
