  • Since the inception of the Flower Power Project (FlPP) in 1999 by APPA, the poor areas in Washington D.C. significantly transformed for the good. To this day, approximately three thousand high and middle school students actively participated in this project by cleaning the streets and building street gardens. 
  • Over 2,900 students have participated in the Fasting Power Project since its beginning in 2000. In this project, students fast a meal per week and instead ask their parents to donate five dollars, money that could be spent on the meals. Over a month, approximately 20-25 dollars are accumulated per student volunteer.
  • In 2003, APPA launched the Poster Power Project (PPP), a project perfect for targeting the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and spreading awareness among young adults and adults. Since its beginning, more than 2,500 students have created posters on issues such as extreme poverty, education, and so on.
