Celie Frank-Rodgers, otherwise known as Celie Anne Sunshine, is going to Nunavut and Peru with Canada World Youth…..and you can help!

I have been patiently on a waiting list to be a volunteer with Canada World Youth for the last few months and I’m in….YEAH!! …but time is quickly dwindling to raise the money needed by July 7, 2014! Many have asked to help so I have set up this website to make this easy for all you lovely and amazing supporters.

Youth Leaders in Action....

The project I have been selected for is a 5-month development project in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut and Mato, Peru with a focus on food security, hygiene and nutrition. In Peru I will be working with Peruvian partner organization, Brigada de Voluntarios Bolivarianos de Peru, helping to give workshops on food sovereignty and nutrition as well as working on the Healthy Homes Project that builds improved stoves and ecological refrigerators. Also I will be supporting young rural micro-entrepreneurs in the production of yogurt, jam, and other food products alongside a local youth cooperative. Of course I will also discover new ways of livings, new cultures, team-work, leadership, and learn to speak Spanish—and a whole lot more I cannot even anticipate.

A bit about Canada World Youth…..

Canada World Youth has been running its programs of 42 years. It is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that offers international educational programs to youth between the ages of 17 and 25. Canada World Youths mission is to increase the ability of people, and especially young people, to participate actively in the development of just harmonious and sustainable societies. You can check out their website at

A bit about Me….

As many of you know I was born in Kingsport, Nova Scotia and I have a big family. This month I’m graduating from Northeast Kings Education Centre, in Canning Nova Scotia. In the future I hope to working towards creating a self-sustainable community open for people to come and go as they please to work on their personal growth and desires in life. I’m an inspiring artist, and hope to make a difference in the world, teaching of love through art. I believe in free living and self-expression.  DANCE LOVE HAPPINESS! Just be. 

How you can help…. 

One of my commitments to Canada World Youth is to raise $3200 and through this website I am asking for financial donations toward this commitment.  Your donations support me, but they also support the communities I will travel to and the Canada World Youth program that makes possible such opportunities. Canada World Youth is a registered charity organization and can issue receipts for donations of $10 or more. If you can’t contribute financially, you can still help by spreading the word by sharing this website. You can also send me good vibes because even though I’m super excited I’m a little nervous.
