Baiwalla Fundraising Fair at Hennepin Avenue UMC

Hennepin Avenue UMC Outreach Group "Project Baiwalla" is returning this July to offer Hennepin members an opportunity to renew their financial commitment to sponsor children in Baiwalla, Sierra Leone. Last year, we were so touched by Hennepin's extravagant generosity, sponsoring the education of 120 children. Visit Hennepin Sundays 7/21-8/4 to sign up for child sponsorship.

2020 Baiwalla Student Sponsorship Fundraiser

THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS!

We are grateful for another year of partnership with Hennepin Avenue UMC! Hennepin's outreach team, known as"Project Baiwalla," held a fundraising event for our students in Baiwalla, Sierra Leone.

A HEARTFELT THANK YOU to all the continuing and new child sponsor donors for the Baiwalla elementary and secondary children. Without your support, many of the children would not be able to attend school–you sponsored 177 students! Hennepin Avenue UMC Youth raised over $2000 for school books, and Anoka UMC contributed $1600 to support the school lunch program.  Visit the News article for full details.

For questions about this project and partnership, contact Ann Carlson at 763-464-6850 or carlsonaj99@gmail.com.
