Dear members and friends,
As we head into the holiday season I want to wish you all much happiness, family gatherings at last and the hope for a more normal 2022.
While this year took a toll on many through the stress and isolation of the ongoing pandemic PACE Canada has much to be thankful for, and all thanks to you, our patrons, members, family, friends and supporters.
We are truly excited to provide 1000 OneTab devices to our sponsored schools in Jamaica. The first Caribbean island to provide these devices with built in math, reading and writing educational applications developed by www.onebillion.org in the UK. Some students are already using these devices to catch up on their education missed as most schools are still closed for over a year now. See photos and information about the handover ceremony to in Jamaica.
Thank you to all our members and supporters who participated in our virtual events providing some lively entertainment while keeping you up to date on PACE Canada activities.
Over 300 of our PACE Canada “adopted” schools benefitted from your ongoing donations which helped to provide pandemic retrofits to the schools and delivery of learning materials to students by paper, online and other means required. They are truly appreciative of your continued support.
We hope that you stay healthy and hearty as we await the new year and the challenges ahead. PACE Canada again thanks you for all you have contributed during these difficult times and want you to know that you are Helping Young Children Succeed.
