Interact Club makes a difference in Africa

EdPowerment sent members of Interact Club a thank you note for the $1,000 donation the group made to support the educational mission of the not-for-profit organization. The Lakes and ACHS collaborative student group raised the money during its annual Chili Cook-off. Interact Club long has supported EdPowerment in part because of its relationship with Kerri Elliot, EdPowerment director and former ACHS teacher and Interact Club sponsor. Among other services, Edpowerment offers nearly 100 adolescents, teens, and young adults courses at the Kilimahewa Educational Centre in Africa so they can qualify for a job or further schooling.

Interact Club serves the local community, too, including Open Arms Mission, and communicates its accomplishments to District and community leaders regularly. Follow Interact Club on Twitter @InteractD117.
