I just got confirmation that our summer camp project has been awarded $16,500 by the Norwegian Embassy. This was fantastic news because we were getting to the point where we were worried if we’d even have a camp or not. If we were, it was going to be a bare-bones version of the camp we’d envisioned.
More personally, I’m very relieved that we got the money to run the camp, because it makes me PC service feel much more significant. I had been worried that without the funding, my service seemed dull. Especially now that I’m looking toward my post PC life, I’m relieved to be able to say that I wrote a proposal and it was funded, than simply I tried to get some money for a project and it didn’t work. It’s a game changer.
Now the real work starts. This is going to be a great way to finish out service.
