On January 28th I was given the amazing opportunity to be able to present a slideshow explaining The Howley Foundation to Christ The King School in Burlington, Vermont. I showed slides of Calcutta from my visit in 2010 as well as slides from my visit to Maher in Pune, India in 2012. I explained that I was working with Maher which means "Mother's House" to build two homes for orphans in Jharkhand, India.
The children were eager to ask great questions and seemed very interested.
The school spent one week fundraising for The Howley Foundation and raised over $600 which will go directly toward installing electricity at the lot where the houses will be build. As a prize for the great effort, the children were able to have a dress-down day at school on February 1.
The Howley Foundation and I are very grateful to Christ The King School and especially Jon Hughes for their efforts in organizing this event.
