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.
Thanks so much for welcoming me to Santa Domingo and your project connections. I am really glad I went. 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 thats 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 there.
….again you amaze me that you are not only looking out for the children but also caring for animals with all that you have on your plate. There is no question that you should be in humanitarian work because you are so committed to helping others and making a difference in the world. Bravo.
“I am so proud of you that you’re doing all of this for those sweet, deprived kids! Every little amount of love and affection will touch them forever. I bet their smiles are priceless! they’ll never forget you.” Jen Jaxson “Its such an awsome site to visit once in awhile! The stories are wonderful, I hope you keep on doing what your good at and helping other people and countries that are in need”
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.
If there is anything I can do, please let me know!” .”
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.!”
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.
I feel nothing but good about the work Sunyata and her friends are doing, and I think it’s about the most worthwhile thing I ever heard of. Brilliant work — I’m proud to be helping with it.
I really appreciate your help thank you so much. I promise I will never let you down I am a hard worker and I have a positive attitude I believe I can change the world too. you are an inspiration to me and I believe to many people too. Lot of love.
You’re our voice, we can’t get the attention of people in North America the way that you can. You can tell the stories for us.
You taught me to get off my butt and stop talking about doing stuff,,,but start doing anything to try and make a difference in my own way.
