New club at Bromfield to help Darfur

Harvard — The Darfur Sister School Club will soon be starting up at the Bromfield School.

At the Feb. 8 meeting, Lily Ritter and Ann Chacko, juniors at Bromfield, requested that the School Committee officially sanction the club.

Lily said they wish to connect with a sister school in a refugee camp in southern Chad.

“We want to raise funds for schools so they can buy more school supplies for the students there … hire more teachers and construct a school there.”

Lily said that video blogging is a way the club can establish pen pals with the sister school students.

Ann offered some ideas for fundraising such as dances, bake sales, a talent show, a walk around the track in Harvard, and bringing speakers into the community to talk about Darfur. Read more >>>>>>>>>>>>>>
