The Bishop Verot Club Project

Sophia Prendiville and Megan Piller submitting and presenting their Bishop Verot Club Project

For last year’s annual NCWA  SWFLMUN conference hosted by FGCU, our Bishop Verot club was tasked with crafting a plan to help Nigerian women held hostage by thecterrorist group Boko Haram. Bishop Verot and Nigerian terrorists might seem an odd combination, but our Model UN program has forced us students to reach far beyond the confines of our everyday lives and comfort zones. Surprisingly enough, our club took home first prize with the H.O.W. Campaign and Bows against Boko, which can both be attributed to our graduated predecessors. For the 2018 conference, Megan Piller and I worked on a follow up project that was slightly more feasible and allowed us to continue the thread of fighting human rights violations. We were introduced to Christy’s Cause through a mutual organization and immediately saw the potential the organization had to offer to our cause. Christy’s own experiences and the voices she gave to others dovetailed perfectly with the plight of the Nigerian women. She served as our guest speaker at City of Palms Model United Nations conference (Verot’s very own in house conference) and we sold pink conference T-shirts to raise money. The most exciting part of our plan has yet to come to fruition. We will be selling blue Pura Vida bracelets to continue our mission of bringing awareness to the disregard for human rights in any way possible.

Howard and Nancy Cohen, who provided the $500 first prize For the last three years, are donating an additional $600 to Bishop Verot for the start up money needed  to have the bracelets created for sale. 

Those of us involved and Model UN are so proud of these students using their initiative to make constructive contributions beyond what would personally benefit them.
