Sylvia, an 8th grader, has designed colorful bookmarks and postcards with Nicaraguan themes to benefit elementary school children in rural Leon, Nicaragua. Sylvia was inspired to help these children with her artwork and cultural knowledge. They are in need of books, maps, school supplies, shoes, and clothing. All proceeds from sales go to the Albert Schweitzer Institute at Quinnipiac University, Hamden, CT. Recently, Sylvia has expanded to include all children of the developing world, such as flood victims in Pakistan.


The Albert Schweitzer Institute (Quinnipiac University, 660 New Road, Hamden, CT 06518) maintains regular contact with Central America and other countries of the developing world.
