Walk for Education
Please join us for our annual Walk for Education on Saturday, November 26th in Santa Monica. This year, we are happy to announce that Coptic Orphans has joined our efforts in co-sponsoring this event. This year’s theme is community service and volunteerism. Our high school and college students are always asking us how we can support our Coptic community and especially our Coptic children. Coptic Orphans sponsors a program called Serve to Learn, where students from all over the world can go and serve in Egypt helping our children with their education. This program has become very popular among our Coptic youth here in the States and has enriched each volunteer’s life immensely. Many students have found that this experience has significantly improved their chances to get scholarships as well as admissions in universities of their choice.
Universities are looking for well-rounded students who can excel not only in the classroom but also in the community. CEF is a strong supporter of community service, not only as a means to get into a university but also as a way for young adults to learn at a very early age the value of the words “It is better to give than to receive.”
Please join us in the spirit of community service and do your part to help others help themselves in pursuit of their academic dreams.
Looking forward to seeing you there !!!
