THANKS! from the School of St Judes

St Judes logoWe were thrilled to receive this message following a recent donation to St Judes. Gemma has made a short video for us which explains how our donation is being used, so please take a  look to see how June’s legacy is making a difference in Tanzania.

 

Dear Anne and All at The June Canavan Foundation,

Asante Sana! (Thank you very much) for your generous $ 100,000 donation towards Community Service, in June this year.

We have put together a short video to update you on the progress of our Community Service interns; you can watch it by clicking this link.

We sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the impact your contribution is making, both in the lives of our inaugural graduates/ interns and in their local government schools.

We also launched our new website – please let us know if you have any feedback about the site.
