CANRAD Project Fully Funded

The CANRAD Project which began in January 2006 was designed as an eight year project and will end in December 2013.

The project is now fully funded and we are no longer seeking donations.

We are extremely grateful to all who contributed to this project and who made education a dream come true for the CANRAD girls. The St. Mary’s Lwak Girls Trust Fund was legally established at the school this year and will provide for the sustainability of sponsorships at the school. This fund is a potential destination for any excess funds at the end of the CANRAD Project.
