On July 4th Boise Sunrise Rotary in partnership with the Nampa Rotary Club and the non-profit Because International delivered 294 pairs of "The Shoe That Grows" to a Girls' Education Club outside of Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique.  Each Club seeks to keep girls in school to complete a primary level education and provides the opportunity for a select few to obtain a secondary education, an all too rare occurrence in much of Mozambique.  Gorongosa National Park supports approximately 35 Girls' Clubs with a goal of expanding to 50 clubs by the end of the year.  For several of the girls, this is the first pair of shoes they have owned.  For the rest of the club these expandable shoes replace poorly made 'flip flops', providing not only a shoe that provides better protection but one which will last for up to five years as the owner’s foot continues to grow.  This successful event is another example of a lengthy list of Idaho-Gorongosa cooperative efforts … the Girls’ Education Program is managed by Larissa Sousa (red coat), big sister of Boise State sophomore Michel Sousa.
The board and staff of Project AMIGO wish to extend their appreciation for all of the support they received during their fundraiser held at Yanke Motor Museum. This support allows them to continue the great work they are doing to ensure that children in Mexico receive an education. To date, they have had 62 young adults graduate from the University in Colima; and have 50 scheduled to enroll in the 2018 Fall semester.
 
Through the generosity of those in attendance, $75,000 dollars was raised: all of which will go to scholarships for children. To learn more, visit the Project AMIGO web-page: www.projectamigo.org, or you can contact Gary Multanen at 208-921-4725.
Boise Sunrise is providing to dictionaries to 3rd graders at six local elementary schools.  If you would like to help with the distribution later this fall, please contact Michael Faison.  The mission of the Dictionary Project is to assist all students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary. The dictionaries are a gift to each student to use at school and at home for years to come. Educators see third grade as the dividing line between learning to read and reading to learn, so we encourage our sponsors to give dictionaries each year to children in the third grade.
