PCC MISSION MOMENTS International Day of Prayer for Peace (September 21)
The International Day of Prayer for Peace is a time to reflect on the importance of upholding peace among people and across nations. A peaceful society is one where justice, equality and security are available to everyone. To achieve this, people everywhere need to have the opportunity for economic and social development. That is why PWS&D is working in some of the most vulnerable and marginalized countries around the world to help families overcome poverty hunger, and oppression by promoting health, education, gender equality, sanitation, protection of the environment and social justice. While peace will enable a compassionate world to take shape, a sustainable environment will also further peace.

LANGLEY SCHOOL DISTRICT FOUNDATION – Thank you so much for your donation to the Langley School District Foundation. Your generosity and support of our Food for Thought Campaign makes a huge difference in the lives of the more than three thousand kids who come to school hungry every day. Thanks to you, we now see happy, healthy children sitting among their new-found friends, secure in the knowledge that they do not have to suffer through a day of growling stomachs and lack of nutrition. It really is a sight to behold and you have helped make it happen.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS International Literacy Day
With PWS&D’s support, children living in the neighbourhood surrounding Guatemala City’s garbage dump are accessing education at the Francisco Coll School. Students who excel qualify for scholarships to further their education. Other graduates pursue vocational training in order to achieve employment, a dream otherwise unachievable. A student from Francisco Coll will be continuing her studies in business administration at university.  Her words of thanks are a testament to the importance of the project that is equipping students to pursue their dreams: “I give you thanks because with your extraordinary effort I will have a better future full of more opportunities to be able to help my family and grow professionally.”
