SMILE!

The Setting: Mosaic Centre  (Ft. Rd), a support hub and gathering place for people in that part of the city who have been marginalized by poverty.  It is Dec 8.

The Participants:  Marvel College hairdressing students, Edmonton Christian High School photography students and Mosaic Centre community members.

The Story:  Together they tell a story that is simple enough and beautiful enough to be told with pictures.

Real work, meeting a real need for real people.  It was authentic learning done with real human connections.  Blessings for all!
