Acsenda students supported the Rotary Club of Vancouver Yaletown’s “Bowling for Kenya” tournament on Saturday, October 29th. About 70 people came out in full Halloween costume! Team Acsenda’s “Hallowed Scholars” put on an impressive performance with some great bowling. Well done Acsenda!
The event raised about $1000 to support the Rotary Club of Yaletown’s international project to provide sustainable water systems for two community schools in rural Kenya. The purpose of this project is to provide clean drinking water and systems, improve community health and education, and enhance educational opportunities for students for two rural schools in the Suswa region of Kenya. The schools do not have a sustainable source of water to supply the schools and their communities, which in turn affects student health and retention, particularly for female students who are often the ones sent to fetch water at long distances.
