H3 does good deeds at home and abroad

Hands, Heart, and Hope, also known as H3, is a social justice group working towards positive local and global change.  The students involved in this group are champions of human rights, mental health education, and women’s empowerment. This year our students are involved in many local and global initiatives. The group decided last year to raise enough funds to build a well in Haiti.  The group achieved their goal!  In June 2017, H3 wrote a cheque for $5,000 to Free the Children, thereby starting the process to end the cycle of poverty! In September 2017, upon our return to school, H3 students received an amazing thank you card from Free the Children which included a picture of the well and the recipients of H3 fundraising efforts!

For the 2017-18 school year, H3 is focused on several local initiatives. H3 collected over 2,000 pounds of food for the Thompson food bank already this year!  Thank you to the community for supporting this great cause!  H3 also has remarked on a global campaign “We Are Rafikis.”  This campaign empowers women in Kenya and helps them earn money to send their children to school by selling handmade rafiki bracelets.  Each bracelet has a code to track your impact when buying the bracelet.   Thank you to the community and R.D. Parker Collegiate for making each campaign a success!
