This year was full of making differences and bringing more to our community, all with the help of 365.
Three Sisters provided tutoring and held a kids summer camp for those who have never had an art class before! 365 sponsored the meals during the camp so that everyone could enjoy a protein-rich meal during their five days of the camp.
We also took them to the artwork exhibition, which was full of artwork based on Benin’s folktales. For some kids, this was their first time going to a museum. Some of the art was created by kids in the program during the summer camp.
We held our annual holiday party, which was a blast! It’s the one time a year most of these families get together to celebrate the accomplishments of their children who have gone to school.
This year’s proud accomplishment was the 365 sponsored well, built by hand by Ali Albaka and his team of artisans. Their community of over 300 people had to move due to an outbreak of COVID near where they lived. The nearest water point was a two-mile walk in their new location, which you can imagine was hard on them. With the help of 365, they now have water close by, and they can spend their time working on artisan goods (adults) and going to school (kids).
