Diegueño Country School Peace Run


Diegueño Country School held its third annual Peace Run Oct. 9 in celebration of International Peace Day. This annual fundraising event supports Diegueño Daughters, a school of 30 girls in the village of Mewat, India overseen by IIMPACT—a foundation developed by MIT graduates to promote education in India.

Diegueño Daughters, established through donations from the annual Diegueño Peace Run, continues to be supported by the school’s chapter of Roots and Shoots, a program founded by renowned anthropologist and humanitarian Jane Goodall to help children know they can make a difference in the world. Through their desire to promote a love for learning, the students at Diegueño are helping to create a brighter future for these deserving children who otherwise would not have had the opportunity to receive an education.
