Thousands will follow Elia Saikaly and the FindingLife team via social media, findinglife.ca and wigup.tv but - for the first time in FindingLife’s history – we will be taking students with us on the adventure.
In addition to Dr. Norm O'Reilly and one undergraduate student from the University of Ottawa, a PhD Student from Queen’s University, we will be taking 6 High School students, 3 English and 3 French, on the experience of a lifetime. We will also be covering the costs of the students.
These 6 Canadian students will team up with 6 Kenyan students and live an unforgettable adventure. We will climb a mountain, build a classroom, support an entire community, go on a safari and learn about a wonderful charity called the Moving Mountains Trust. April 20th to May 9th, 2011.
Students of all ages, are invited to follow along and participate in the journey by helping fundraise and support Moving Mountains. Check out what Hopewell Public School have already done. What can you do to create positive change?
