Circle Project’s Annual Report 2021

Through the “All That Kids Can Be” focus area, United Way Regina continues to empower Circle Project to positively impact the lives of the many Indigenous children and parents that we serve in the community. United Way Regina works hard to help us provide opportunities for children to succeed in school so that one day they will lead our community into a safe and prosperous future.

Circle Project’s Council, Staff and Families would like to thank United Way Regina for their continued support of the Circle Project, the Children’s Centre and the Infant & Toddler Centre. Through this vital partnership we are able to continue to make a positive impact on the lives of the children and parents who participate in our Cultural Connections for Kids program.

This year for National Indigenous People’s Day, Circle Project and Partners, Indigenous Christian Fellowship and REACH, held an honour walk to remember the 215 children and out of respect for Residential School Survivors. Thank you to Elder Lorna Standingready, Jeff Cappo and Lone Creek, our new friend Katrina Fowler (originally from B.C.), Manny Pratt and the flag carriers. After the Elder’s prayer, 2 minutes and 15 seconds silence was observed followed by an honour song. Then bears were placed on the steps of the Legislative Building. Thank you to ICF for hosting a barbeque following the walk.
