¡Que interesante! We had a visitor! International sponsored student Ashley visited us from Managua, Nicaragua, all thanks to Pathway for Progress, which is dedicated to helping vulnerable children in Nicaragua access the very best in educational opportunities.
Each year, Pathway for Progress brings one of their sponsored students to Halifax to speak at their Breakfast of Hope and share how education is enriching their life. We were delighted to host Ashley for the day as she shared her life, culture, and experience with our Grade 10 girls who did the same for her. At the end of a wonderful day together Ashley parted with these words: "Thank you for opening the doors of your school to me and for opening your hearts to me as well." Thanks to Mme Riley for coordinating this partnership each year.
