In addition to all the work that we do abroad, Pueblo Science is excited to expand the RISE program to low-resource communities in Canada. Admittedly, numerous indigenous communities face many challenges and education is at the forefront of them. Basic science education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty and abuse for many of the youth. And basic science is best conveyed with fun and hands-on activities and enthusiastic teachers. Right now, we are in need of $5,000 to provide a week-long camp for 40 students in the Walpole Island First Nation in Ontario in May 2018. Our goal is to encourage young students to get interested in science by making it relevant to their everyday lives and respectful of their culture.

Thank you for your generosity.
