On Friday, November 18th, the beautiful new wing of classrooms at the Academy for Peace and Justice officially opened.
APJ Country Director Bryn Mooser, the Canadian Broadcasting Company’s George Stromboulopoulos, and advisory board member Martha Rogers joined Father Rick and the St. Luc team to celebrate the opening.
The Academy for Peace and Justice now serves over 750 underprivileged students who would otherwise not be able to attend secondary school. Each student receives a full scholarship, including tuition, uniforms, nutritious meals and access to medical care. The new wing of the Academy is a milestone in our goal of providing free high-quality education to approximately 3,000 students every year.
Students and administrators filled the celebration with singing, dancing, musical performances and speeches. We are so proud of our progress, and we wanted to share more of the ceremony with you. We couldn’t have gotten this far without your support. Enjoy!
