Paint Party at We Win Institute!

Saturday, July 20th found us painting at We Win Institute, Inc., located on 38th street and 3rd Avenue South. We Win was founded in 1995 by Titilayo Bediako in order to work towards the academic and social success of our children. Their programming emphasizes African history and culture and strives to create pride for children of African descent. Many of We Win's students are also students at Green Central School. Ms. Bediako worked with Green Central and Green Central Community Education this year on a number of issues and events and we look forward to growing our partnership even more in the coming year!

Join us at our next workshop on Thursday, July 25th, sponsored by PPNA at 35th and Chicago in front of Pillsbury House from 6:00-8:00. We will be serving pizza from Jakeeno's, pastries and bread from Turtle Bread Company and North Country Food Alliance will be distributing free produce. Also come hang out with representatives of The Carrot Initiative and CANDO and enjoy painting and kids activities. Join us!
