Developing projects for implementation has been one of the easiest task undertaken as an incoming president. The enthusiasm and generosity of DKG members enables the development and execution of projects an even greater reward. The following is a brief description of the projects I feel very "passionate" about at the state, national and international levels. My hope is that each of the projects outlined below will offer a selection of opportunities for chapters to embrace and support at any level. So, find your project and get going!
Epsilon State Project: Developing state leaders is one of the REACHing goals of this biennium. Theme created, pins ordered and currently on sale with the funds supporting leadership training in Epsilon State for Bea Davis. Forms for ordering pins can be found at the Epsilon state website. This project is a success because of YOU - the members of Epsilon. Thank you!
Epsilon National Project: The Great American Bake Sale focuses on ending childhood hunger. What an excellent project for educators who see children on a daily basis who can benefit from this program. Many members can participate in bake sales at the holidays, festivals, etc. The resources supplied at http://gabs.strength.org/ will give members flyers, ideas, and vital information to host a bake sale that could make a huge difference in the life of a child. Register as a chapter or as a school. You do not have to be a baker to be a contributor. Assist by helping to organize the event, publicize and encourage members to be involved.
Epsilon International Project: "Schools for Africa" is the official project of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International. This project offers the opportunity for members to donate monies for the building and rehabilitation of schools, creating schools that offer a safe and protective environment for children, provide children with pencils and exercise books and many more opportunities for improving the quality of education for children in Africa.
