Robyn’s Message to the Community-MEF Giving Projects

| Montessori Admin |

Each year we hold fundraisers, such as the Fun Run, in which our students participate, in order to earn money to go towards our Giving Projects. The funds are donated to Montessori Educational Foundation (M.E.F ), the non-profit arm of the school that currently is used exclusively for charitable purposes.

Project #1 Children Of Ethiopia Education Fund (COEEF)

For many years our school has been sponsoring young girls from Ethiopia, through the Children of Ethiopia Education Fund (COEEF), so that they are able to attend school; many girls in Ethiopia never have that opportunity.

We are currently supporting three girls:

Each year COEEF holds a Fundraiser. Last year some of our staff attended the event and loved the food and entertainment. Maya, our bookkeeper, even won a huge unicorn in the silent auction!

If you are able to attend this year’s event I know that you and your children will really enjoy the evening and perhaps you will find some wonderful items at the auctions.

Best wishes,

Robyn Eriwata-Buchanan
