Three Westminster Students Receive Projects for Peace Grant


Three Westminster students-Muzubran Gebrekidan of Ethiopia, Sheila Nimoh of Ghana, and Riley Zull of St. Peters, MO---have received a $10,000 grant to renovate and expand a community center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and offer a tutoring/mentor program there to help some of the 100,000 street children that wander the city.

Made possible by the Projects for Peace program, the initiative will take the three to Ethiopia for the month of June to complete their mission with the help of a local organization that helps street children called Onesimus Children Development Association.

Their mentoring program is modeled after the successful Blue Jay Buddy program established by Westminster students in conjunction with the McIntyre Elementary School in Fulton. Since the Projects for Peace program began in 2007, Westminster students have received funding for at least one of their programs every year.
