The Sunalta School Community Welcomes Refugees is a community group applying to sponsor a refugee family.  We will be putting together an application, raising approximately $30,000 to financially support a family, and providing settlement assistance on arrival.


We are participating in the 1000 Schools challenge - an initiative to get 1000 schools across Canada to commit to sponsoring a refugee family, much like church communities did in the 1970s and 1980s, and are doing today. If you know another school community interested in supporting a refugee family, they can find more information as well as tools and resources here


Teach a child to change the world by showing them how it’s done. Your school community has everything it takes to sponsor a refugee family – and we’ll help you along the way. Together, we’ll give a thousand families a new start in Canada.
