Niwot Elementary hosts Mwebaza Foundation Book and Art Sale
March 4, 2020
Stop by Niwot Elementary School on March 4 and shop the 12th annual Children's Book and Art Sale. Each year, the elementary school hosts various fundraisers to benefit partner schools of local non-profit, The Mwebaza Foundation.
Over a decade ago, Niwot Elementary partnered with Mwebaza Infant Primary School, in Kyengera, Uganda to participate in a cultural exchange. Since then, the foundation has added six additional partner schools in Uganda and Colorado, respectively. Students are given the chance to think up, organize, and execute fundraisers in which proceeds go directly to improve conditions at the partner schools.
Executive Director at The Mwebaza Foundation, Devaki Douillard, explained what she loves about this annual event, "My favorite part of the Children's Book and Art Sale is that it promotes reading and provides an opportunity for children, school wide, to participate in supporting their partner school by using their creativity to make art pieces!"
Once again, Niwot Elementary students are hosting a book and art sale, in which the students created and donated their artwork. They've also gathered hundreds of gently-used children's books and plan to sell these as well. The sale takes place on March 4, from 3:30 - 5:30 pm.
