International Students in the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program at SLU have been working with their community partner - The Blessing Basket Project - in order to help end poverty in Africa and Asia. The Blessing Basket Project is a non-profit organization that currently works with 1,500 artisans from countries such as Ghana, Uganda, Madagascar, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and Bangladesh to help end poverty. Representatives from The Blessing Basket Project and International Students in the EAP program will discuss how this generation's students and those in the St. Louis community can help to end this extremely important global issue.
