Mission EDU Senegal Open House on April 17, 2015

March 30th, 2015 by unaseattle

We are very excited to announce that Mission EDU Senegal is gearing up for its Open House. It will be on April 17, 2015 from 6 pm to 8 pm at the Eritrean Community Center in the Rainier Valley.

Come join us on this lovely Spring evening to learn about what Mission EDU Senegal has accomplished in the past years and what its plans are for the future. Specifically, we are happy to announce three new initiatives: Connections, Equal Chances and Focus2020. Come meet the Connection program’s Youth Ambassadors, who are already at work on a fundraising event.

Peinda plans to cook Yassa Poulet, a traditional chicken dish from Senegal. Octavia is prepared to make a big pot of chicken adobo, the ultimate comfort food from the Philippines. Sides are rice and couscous.

To help us kickstart this new phase, we are asking for a $20 donation from everyone at the door. Octavia will also have a limited number of handmade soaps for sale, the proceeds of which will all go to Mission EDU. $50 will buy a backpack and school supplies for one girl for a year, giving her an Equal Chance in the future. $20 provides 4 hours of Math and Science tutoring to girls in the Focus2020 program. So please open your hearts and wallets!
