Funding from Painted Hand CDC has led to many successes for individuals, teams, groups and projects. Here are only a few of them from the past several years.
Sarah during photoshoot in Paris, October 3, 2022
This young lady received a $500 donation from PHCDC to attend International Indigenous Fashion Week in Paris.
Sarah Keshane is a member of the Cowessess First Nation, and also has roots on the 2022 International First Nation. She is a single mom to an amazing little 4-year-old boy.
Sarah had the opportunity to be a model at the 2022 International Indigenous Fashion Week in Paris on October 1, 2022 as well as doing photo shoots on October 3, 2022 with professional photographers. Sarah worked hard to fundraise and requested donations to come up with the $3,500 that was needed, with less than a week to do it.
Sarah wanted this experience enough that she did it. She raised the required funds and off to Paris she went.
Melville Library board member Mike Fisher
A grant from the Painted Hand CDC allowed the Melville Public Library to greatly expand it's collection of Indigenous reading material.
The library purchased a wide-ranging collection of books, both non-fiction and fiction, which are available to all library patrons.
Rubber Trails Project
The outside area of the SIGN Early Learning Centre was in need of nurturing and improvement, leading to The Rubber Trails Project several years ago.
The project consists of laying a rubber bike path and sitting area, with the goal to cut down the amount of dust, better ability to organize spending time in the outdoors, and for all the children to have specific areas for toys and activities. It makes the outside area more user friendly for the children, and aesthetically pleasing, ELC Director Patricia Kennedy said.
The Rubber Trails Project took it first major step with the installation of a rubber pathway -- a bike path and sitting area. As well, sod was placed by the gazebo.
The work was made possible by a grant of $6,000 from the Painted Hand Community Development Corporation (PHCDC) which covered the cost of the rubber trail. The work was done by A1 Rubber Paving of Regina, which also provided additional work at no cost.
