Returned Peace Corps Volunteers - WI Give Grant for Jenin Playground!

The Returned Peace Corps Volunteers - WI raise funds each year through sales of their beautiful calendars, and then make grants to international projects sponsored by group members. RPCV-WI member Lee Row graciously sponsored PfP-Madison's request for funding for the Jenin playground. Jean-Marc and Judith went to the groups meeting last night to present the project and answer questions. The feedback was really positive, and we are pleased to report that we were given a grant of $1,200 -- 10% of our goal!

With the funds we have already raised through donations and sales of fair trade olive oil and olive oil soap, we are now at nearly $3,000 raised -- 25% of the total cost of the project!

Thanks for to RPCV-WI for their support -- we look forward to updating them on our progress!

If you have not yet donated to support the playground, you can send a check to the address to the left, or use the donate button to give through PayPal.
