Volunteer opportunities range from providing a snack for the children during the week to helping out with the daily activities for the children. If you are able to help please sign up with your name and contact information on the bulletin board at the back of the sanctuary. For details see Nathan Cherry.
Limitless Possibilities: Fati‘s Story. Fati can’t walk, but this hasn’t stopped her from achieving a remarkable level of success in her life. Her story begins at the Garu Community based Rehabilitation Centre in Ghana, where she first learned to sew through a vocational training program supported by Presbyterian World Service & Development. She became so good that, although she was once considered an outcast in her community, she is now a sought-after seamstress and operates her own very successful business. Renowned for her talents, Fati even has six apprentices working in her store, all of whom are excited to work with and learn from someone so talented. Stories like these are made possible by the generous support of Presbyterians in Canada. Together we can build brighter futures for the most vulnerable.
