Thank you for helping Phi Alpha Theta raise money to support education in The Gambia through generous raffle item donations and through purchasing raffle tickets!
We are extremely happy to report that Phi Alpha Theta raised $323 this year (with generous donations by HSMC and by Regina Faden). The money will be given to Gambia Rising, an organization founded by former Peace Corps director Mike McConnel, who works with Gambians to provide scholarships to deserving students at all levels of the educational infrastructure in many communities.

I want to thank all the fine Phi Alpha Theta students who worked on keeping this tradition alive. I also want to thank all of the donors, and all the people who supported this effort by taking part in the raffle. As you know, this event is part of Professor Linda Hall’s effort to support the PEACE legacy at SMCM. Although the PEACE program was closed in 2016, the Gambian people elected a new president and deposed the dictator Yahya AJJ Jammeh. Perhaps PEACE will arise in Gambia again.”
