SFAA Project: Support for St. Teresa's Convent
Students Selected for A2S Program
St. Teresa's Convent (STC) students who will benefit from SFAA's Alumni-to-Student (A2S) Sponsorship Program have been selected and matched with their sponsors. On Saturday, November 11, 2017, SFAA published the list of students and their sponsors. Some students were selected on the basis of financial hardship, and others on academic merit.
So far, A2S sponsors have committed to assisting 49 students with tuition and supplies for the academic year September 2017 to June 2018. We are grateful to our sponsors for their kindness and generosity. But, this is just the beginning. We have more students who need our help. Our appeal is for others in Saints Friskies Nation to consider sponsoring a student at STC.
This program comes as a direct response to the urgent educational needs of the students and the operational demands of running the school. Plans on providing more assistance to STC is on-going.

SFAA and "Textbooks Africa"
During the 2012 convention, Wede Gibson (STC Class of '85),) notified Quallyna Porte, National President of SFAA, of her ongoing project that would directly benefit St. Teresa's Convent students. The project, involved collecting and shipping testbooks, library books and supplies to school children and teachers in Africa. The sponsor of this project is Textbooks Africa, a 5013c organization established by Ms. Gibson. After vetting Textbooks Africa, the Saints Friskies Alumni Association donated $3000.00 to help defray the cost of shipping the books to STC.
