“…. Should I say Sister Teresa, as COLORS has done so much in such a little bit of time. Where are you going next and please keep me informed as you are one little dynamo. The kids will miss you terribly. Please keep in touch “ Murdock and Connie

“Thank you for your inspirational presentation about the children in Africa. My granddaughter had to do a project on a caring organization the other day and she chose COLORS. May God surround you with His love and keep you safe always.” Eileen Humphrey

“Thanks so much for welcoming me to Santa Domingo and your project connections. I am really glad I went even though I only spent one day at the orphanage it was worth it. You have really motivated me to start a project even a small one for now. I would like to collect bedding and towels etc. for the Haitian Refugee camp as that’s what they need. I would also like to start a bigger project in Lascola Rada to have communal toilets put in they have a well but need the piping and work to complete this. The land is readily donated. As you know being a social activist it is impossible for me to be in such a country and not involve myself in some kind of positive intervention. Give yourself a pat on the back girl, you are doing some great work. You should be receiving DANGER PAY!!!! With all the experiences you have had their. lol …..Keep in touch and say hello to Jackie and Charlene and take good care of yourself !!! .” Sharon Ann

We have been involved in philanthropic work, serving children of South Africa for the last 20 years, for the bulk of this period we have been privileged to know and partner with Sunyata Choyce.  Sunyata has built resilience into her projects by building relationships with other actors in the field. She is a person of high personal integrity, determination and someone who can be relied on. Her commitment to the welfare and development of the children of our region is beyond doubt. We have the highest regard for her looking over the diversity of her projects, the key words that spring to mind are caring, committed, brave and determined.

“Project Colors is a wonderful initiative. Thanks so much for providing our organization with school supplies for our Swaziland partners. The pre-school teacher was delighted to receive the supplies, until our arrival she had absolutely no supplies. Through your support, the children now have materials to learn the basics before entering primary school. THANK YOU!!” Services and programs for HIV/AIDS prevention Moncton

I am so overflown with emotions now I feel like crying !!!! I really love working with those special group of boys, they made a huge difference in my life. They taught me to appreciate what I have and not to take what I have for granted.
Being part of the community outreach projects filled my heart with joy and happiness.
These projects made such an impact on my life you will have no idea.
Thank you again, Peace out

It’s a bit difficult for me to express my thoughts for the whole situation in an email but let me say/write this: what you achieved in project colors up until now is much much more than anyone achieved I know of. you build up an award-winning organization from scrap, helped so many individuals, changed lifes and put hope in many people’s hearts (not to sound cheesy) it is (or should be) an inspiration for everyone who knows ýou. especially as I told my family and friends about the time there I realized how unique project colors (and probably you as well, as project colors definitely is a part of you) is and how important it is for the people that it will continue.
Working with you in the projects was one of the best experiences in my life. 

Best wishes to you and everyone over there and take care

Wow I am very emotional at the moment and happy at the same time because I have always wish to actually know this *Anonymous* who has made my life to run smoothly without worrying or stressing about the school fees.
I thank the good LORD for bringing you in my life because I have learned a lot in a short period of time and also fell in love with volunteering.
Once again I thank you for everything especially for the opportunities, I really appreciate your concern for young stars like me who will make a difference in other people’s lives including our disadvantaged backgrounds.
Yours Faithfully.

“My name is Charlene Marcinkoski, Through a coincidental meeting of Sunyata Choyce approximately 3 years ago, we have since become great friends and excellent work companions. We have accomplished numerous projects together in the Dominican Republic and I look forward to continuing the great work that Sunyata started in the Dominican 4 years ago. Sunyata and I had the opportunity to both live in Santo Domingo at the same time last year in which many things were accomplished with the help of donors through Project Colors International” Charlene Marcinkoski

“Hope things are working out better with the doctors, dentists, directors, and missionaries-sounds kaotic, but you’re battling it well. There needs to be more sunny’s around doing this. Actually, you’re doing more than enough for one sunny!” Jennifer Jackson

“..…It sounds like an exciting venture! I watched your segment on Breakfast Television this morning and it was really well done. You did a great job! Good luck with your trip to the DR.
If there is anything I can do, please let me know!” .” Ruthann Richardson, UNICEF

“Sounds like COLORS is really making a difference to these kids – I’ can’t imagine being where you’re at right now…. I’m really proud of you! Maybe the monkey thing in Africa wasn’t meant to work out – think of how much more you’re giving to the world…can’t wait to hear the stories from you first hand and see the photos – what you’re doing is really inspiring….. I dropped off $60 from Mom, Dad, and I to your dad yesterday – I know you’ll make it make a difference….” Becky, “Rebecca Jeppesen”

“…. I think its great that there are more kids at the orphanage because in my mind, Jackie’s Home was the best, but with more kids comes many more problems as your experiencing, cutting the hair is a good idea. im sure if it gets to that point everyone will just be bald, including the dogs and that will be that. Hopefully it wont come to that though with the new lice project helping. it breaks my heart to think i cant be there to help. i miss the kids terribly. .. “ Caroline Swan (past volunteer)

“I just saw the write up in the newspaper and I wanted to write and say Congratulations on all your achievements. I always knew you’d go on to do things like this and make a difference in the world.
Last I heard of you, you were trying to go to Sri Lanka, and now I find out you’ve been to South Africa and now you’re in Dom Rep, doing what you’ve
always loved to do….pretty good for someone from Cole Harbor high..hahaa
I can’t express how happy I am for you and how amazing and awe inspiring it is to see and read about all the things you’ve accomplished. I’m totally
envious of course . I always spoke of how I’d love to travel all over the world helping underdeveloped areas or working with the UN.
Well I was so happy to have seen you in the paper to have read about you, just made me want to contact ya and say Hi.!” Adam M.

It has been my great joy to witness Ms. Choyce’s inspiring efforts through the years, first as a UN colleague and then I volunteered as a pro bono communications and strategy consultant for her aid organization. From feeding toddlers in South Africa born into the most impoverished of circumstances, to educating traumatized boys and girls orphaned by civil war in Sri Lanka, Ms. Choyce is an unusual and shining example of a woman who has refused to look the other way… With projects that span the globe, as well as right at home in Halifax with her simultaneous work with immigrant and refugee children, Ms. Choyce is operating on all cylinders.
