International Day of Peace At Codwell

The Port City ITS facet has an ongoing relationship with Codwell Elementary. Our programming involves activities that enlighten and enrich approximately 150 students children throughout the school year.  The second graders at Codwell Elementary participated in celebration of the International Day of Peace with story telling by the International Trends and Services Facet and a peace dove art project by the Arts Facet.  Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on September 21st.  The United Nations General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.  This year's theme is The Right to Peace - The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Canaan Orphanage (Montrious, Haiti)

This year’s proceeds from the Cupcakes and Champagne fundraiser provided educational support to the Canaan Orphanage Christian School in Montrious, Haiti.  The students need to be proficient in the formal French language, which is a requirement to attend the local universities or nursing schools and for obtaining government jobs.  ITS offered its support in helping the students by purchasing an online French Tutorial Program specifically developed for the Canaan Christian School by Rosetta Stone which will have sustainable impact.
