École St. Matthew School has partnered with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon to sponsor a Burundian family, living in a camp. The sponsored family has relatives living in the Saskatooon area. The commitment to sponsor this family is particularly impressive given the lengthy anticipated time predicted for the sponsorship – 18 months to two years. They are developing ideas about how to build opportunities for learning through this experience, from advocacy to Skype communication given the common French language.
École St. Matthew Refugee Fund is now accepting transfer donations to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org – as well as cash and cheques made out to St. Matthew Refugee Family Fund, which can be dropped off at the school at 1508 Arlington Ave, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan S7H 2Y2
