All the Staff at Meaningful Volunteer
Every year, the Good Shepherd's Daycare in Coquitlam BC Canada puts on their annual Christmas concert.
At the concert Santa hands out Christmas gifts to the children. We can neither confirm nor deny that Meaningful Volunteer founder Malcolm Trevena was inside the Santa outfit.
Joey Albert-Pacis the director of the daycare then asked parents if they would like to donate to Meaningful Volunteer. Some very generous donations were received and these will be used to fund Christmas parties at our schools in Nepal and Uganda.
Thanks again Good Shepherd Daycare!
Seven years ago Andy Manley died tragically in a house explosion.
Andy Manley was always a great supporter of Meaningful Volunteer and all we tried to do.
The staff and students in Nepal conducted a small ceremony to remember Andy.
Thanks for everything Andy! You're amazing!
Thanks to a very generous donation from a supporter, staff and students alike got to celebrate Christmas at our school in Nepal.
Merry Christmas from Meaningful Volunteer Nepal!
Over 130 women were nominated and Megin made the finals for two categories:
- Sustainability Award
This was for all her fantastic work she does in both Uganda and Nepal
- Caregiver Award
In addition to her work at Meaningful Volunteer, Megin has also been a foster parent for 19 years. Currently she has five children in her home.
We are all so proud of you here at Meaningful Volunteer! Keep up the great work!
