We couldn't be more proud of or more thankful to the great students at Judge Memorial Catholic High School. They raised $4,381.01 during Catholic Schools Week to help build our next school in Sankama, Mali!
A group of students came together to learn more about student life in Mali and the need for a school in Sankama. They asked great questions and then decided to raise funds to help build the new school. They have also decided to take on this connection as an on-going project -- they are working on making menstrual kits for girls, crafting French/English language flashcards for use in the classroom, and much more.
Special thanks their teacher Ms. Poppe and volunteer (and Judge alumnus!) Katie Murphy for helping make this great work happen. We look forward to continuing this great student-to-student connection!
