Today we were very excited to visit École Secondaire Notre Dame High School in Red Deer, Alberta, to present young humanitarian Claire Welikoklad with the Humanitarian Service Award Scholarship. This scholarship, presented through A Better World’s youth division Tomorrow’s EDGE, is in recognition of dedication to humanitarianism through international service. Claire recently returned from an ABW trip to Kenya and Rwanda with her dad Jason Welikoklad. We were inspired by Claire’s initiative and heart for service—it is always exciting to see young people in action.
