NewsACCESS Innovation

Once again, elementary school student Christian Malatesta along with parents and sister Bianca, acted on his personal desire to help children in the developing world receive an education.

Inspired by the story of ACCESS Members' experiences in the developing world, the Malatesta's took on their own initiative to raise funds for the second time. Selling baked goods within their Brampton elementary school this winter, the family raised over $300 for ACCESS projects overseas.

ACCESS recognizes the support of the family, through their passionate supporter, Christian. In 2006, the Malatesta's held a cookie bake sale for teachers, in addition to generously donated their personal gift-money, raising $400 in total.

Educate. Empower. Inspire.
