LDAV making progress and in the news

Sharing accomplishments of Investee Learning Disabilities Association of Vancouver

In November, Learning Disabilities Association of Vancouver (LDAV) launched their inaugural Fall/Winter fundraising campaign.

We’re happy to report that SVP Partners contributed almost 40% of LDAV’s $50,000 campaign goal. These funds will enable LDAV to immediately increase the number of children supported and positively influence their lives (see impact report).

The BC Catholic newspaper recently published an article on the remarkable difference a successful LDAV pilot program (now expanding to reach 48 children in six Catholic elementary schools) is making in their Vancouver schools. “We have definitely noticed an increase not only in the literary skills of our students, but also in their overall confidence,” says St. Andrew’s principal Peter Veltri.

Kudos to LDAV and all the Partners involved!
