"My name is Logan MacGillivray and I am am 11 year old living in Bedford, Nova Scotia. In January 2008 I saw pictures of the hardships children face in Northern Provence, Sierra Leone - schools with no chairs, no desks, no recreational equipment, few books, and roofing that could not keep the rain away. I felt I should do something. With guidance from the Centre for Development and Peace Education (cdpeace) I spearheaded sending a 40 foot shipping container filled with educational, building and recreational materials to refurbish seven schools and build a community resource centre for students and teachers at the cdpeace headquarters at Mayagba, Sierra Leone."
