In December 2017, 11 Girls sponsored by Hope completed their Education.
These included 2 girls from Bangladesh, 7 girls from PNG who were finally able to complete their last year of secondary School (all over 22 years of age), and two girls from Belize.
This brings the total number of girls who have completed their secondary education with the sponsorship of the Hope Project to 131 girls.
Going forward in 2018 we will continue to sponsor 23 girls, who for the most part are supported by individual Club members and by Friends of Hope. These girls include 4 from Guyana, 10 from India, 1 from Sierra Leone, 3 from Malawi, 3 from Jamaica, and 2 from Rwanda.
The Hope Project team exceeded their goal of raising enough to continue funding another year of education for these girls. with the loyalty and generous donations of CFUW Hope supporters.
The donations continue to come in through 2018 and there will be a Hope meeting later in the year to discuss the possible selection of some new girls with the funds in excess of the ongoing commitment for our 23 girls.
With world events continuing to reflect a great need to help educate young women in every country, the Hope project continues to make a contribution through the help of supporters who can and do make a difference.
We held our annual Christmas Luncheon at Meaden Hall on Saturday, Dec. 9th. It was a fundraiser for our Hope Project and for the Scholarship Fund.
Many people helped with the arrangements, baking, donations for silent auction and miscellaneous items for sale, the set-up and clean-up, ticket sales and in many other ways. It was enjoyed by all.
Another successful fundraiser sponsored by Fraser’s Thimble Farm! Over 90 hanging baskets were sold to raise general funds to support CFUW Salt Spring activities.

We will be holding our first meeting of the season Saturday, September 24, 2016 at 11:00 AM at the Sailing Club. It is a potluck luncheon and an opportunity to sign up for interest groups.
Again, our Christmas fundraiser luncheon was an enjoyable and successful event.
We are delighted that almost $13,000 was raised this year.
This is the most colourful fundraiser for CFUW SSI. This past May, Frasers Thimble Farm once again provided hanging baskets at a discounted price for our fund raiser. These baskets were just as gorgeous as last year! Over 95 baskets were sold to our members this year.
