A Meeting with Bev Carrick, Co-Founder of CAUSE Canada

Wednesday, May 4, 2016 -

Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Bev Carrick is a world changer. After completing her nursing degree at McGill University, Bev headed, at her own cost, to Ethiopia to work as a famine relief nurse. That introduction led to an incredible career. In Central America, Bev designed and implemented maternal, newborn and child health programs, established microfinancing programs and implemented women's empowerment programs. In West Africa, Bev designed and supervised an immunization program providing public health services to hundreds of thousands of villagers, saving countless lives. In post-war Sierra Leone, Bev managed a 3 year program working with war amputees and former child soldiers in rehabilitation, vocational training and re-integration. CAUSE Canada's work in Sierra Leone over the last 10 years has concentrated on education. With financial help from outside partners such as 60 million girls Foundation, 60 primary schools have been built, hundreds of teachers trained, not to mention school supplies and education provided to many thousands of students, who otherwise would not have had access to school. Bev will talk about her extensive background in getting underserved and vulnerable children into the classroom, ensuring their access to a quality education. 60 million girls Foundation first partnered with CAUSE Canada in 2012 in Kabala district, Sierra Leone. In November 2013 we implemented a pilot project with an inexpensive mini-server called a Raspberry Pi, onto which we downloaded math and science tutorials along with an encyclopaedia. This year, again in Kabala, we are funding a peer literacy program and self-directed computer-based learning project using Rachel Pi (raspberry's new edition). We will demonstrate the tremendous potential of this device and approach. Cost: $15 (includes tea and coffee) Payment through PayPal @ 60milliongirls.org, or by cash/cheque at the door. If paying at the door please email Paula Gallagher at gallagherpaula4@gmail.com in order to reserve a seat. Join us on May 4 to meet Bev Carrick - simply an amazing woman!

RUN FOR WATER ABBOTSFORD

Sunday, May 29, 2016 -

Time: 7:30am - 12:00pm

    Run for Water Society is a non-profit organization that raises money for clean water projects in Sasiga, Ethiopia. For the 9th year, Envision Financial Run for Water is hosting a multi-distance race event, including an Ultra Marathon, half Marathon, 10k Run, and 5k Fun Run. When you register to run, you have the option of running solo, or creating a team to run together. This May, Food for the Hungry (FH) Canada and Run for Water Abbotsford are teaming up to organize the event. FH is partnered with 9 communities there, and is thrilled by Run for Water's enthusiasm to help families thrive. Money raised by donating and fundraising goes to providing clean water which means that girls no longer have to go on daily journeys in search of contaminated water. With access to safe, clean, drinking water, kids in the village can go to school, mothers can start businesses, fathers can water their crops, and children no longer die of waterborne diseases. Last year just 10% of runners raised $300,000 and we were able to bring clean water to more than 18,000 people in Yella, Ethiopia. Imagine if we ALL fundraised or donated? Think about the profound impact we can make. THIS YEAR DON’T JUST RUN, RAISE!
