Friends of the Orphans Logo


After the Annual General Meeting

Last Saturday, fifty persons spent the day getting reacquainted and reliving experiences of the past winter (and fall) working on projects sponsored by FOTOCAN. A wonderful meal of Mexican food was enjoyed by all and we offered more wares from around the world for our silent auction. This is more or less our "wrap up" for the project season and we are already looking into projects for next year. It looks like we have possibilities in Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua (after a year's hiatus) and Peru. Our pilot project in South Africa last September was a success and we are hoping to offer another experience in the fall of 2020.


Our sponsorship is holding steady and we are moving toward providing electronic newsletters for our tech-savvy supporters and we are launching a coorporate sponsorship campaign soon via telephone. 


We welcomed two new board members and new volunteers in our Guelph office. The office was also given a fresh coat of paint and breightened up with a glass etching of our logo donated by Central Canadian Glass Company! 


Happy summer to all and please consider a journey for a project in the new year!
