Generations Foundation: Our precious assets

Children are our most precious assets. Little did we realize, before the days of broader knowledge, that we could mold a child’s future even in the womb.

Tragic experiences, especially for those children who are denied food, love and caring, would likely hamper their survival and success, possibly perpetuating the cycle with their offspring.

The majority of parents care about their children and there is help from friends and neighbors. Mary Maraj of our Board of Directors wears multiple hats in both her own family and in the Generations Foundation family. Now a grandmother, she is asking for your support on behalf of the Generations Foundation to help provide positive experiences and nourishment to some of our needy 8,000 schoolchildren in their formative years.

Visit generationsfoundation.com to join Mary and friends at the 2015 Scotiabank Charity Challenge 25/5K at Parc Jean Drapeau April 26. Thanks to their tenacity, Mary and friends want to top the $15,000 raised last year.

Kudos to Jaclyn, Julia, Christiane-Marie and Annabel of Trafalgar School for Girls for their dedication in winning the Youth Philanthropy Initiative top prize in raising $5,000 for Generations Foundation school food programs.
