April 10, 2014 – Jeewan Chanicka – Fundraising
As an educator, Jeewan Chanicka wanted to extend the work he was doing with CMAT into the students’ learning which was happening in his classroom. The Helping Hands project was born early on in CMAT’s existence and through this, students from across the York Region District School Board (YRDSB) engaged in learning which resulted in them assisting children and families around the world. “With the growing partnership between CMAT and our schools, and through the support of our Inclusive Schools and Community Services, Helping Hands has been made a system-wide initiative across the YRDSB,” states Jeewan.
