One person can make a difference! Grade 8 student, Sarah Sollitt, has been making a difference at Scott Young Public School for the past two years. Already an active member in her school’s Me to We program, Sarah plans to take her passion for change one step further by traveling to Africa this summer with the Me to Me team. This volunteer trip costs $5,000, and thanks to Sarah’s family, community, and fellow students, she has fulfilled her financial goal.
In search of support, Sarah connected with community groups and schools and presented a presentation showing her contribution and commitment to the Me to We movement. Sarah was overwhelmed with the outstanding support she received from her community and especially fellow students. Woodville Public School heard of Sarah’s initiative and started a campaign to help support her commitment to Me to We, which in turn inspired students to join the Me to We program. Sarah also received help from Scott Young Public School and Lady Eaton Elementary School with spirit weeks dedicated to supporting her goal.
Sarah’s trip to Africa has become a reality thanks to the support from her family and community. One person can make a difference…and with amazing support, Sarah has the opportunity to bring change to Africa.
