What a brilliant way to celebrate our 10th annual conference! It began with a stunning and moving performance by the Kenyan Boys Choir. This was followed by our president’s address. Wanda Bedard described the Foundation’s many activities and achievements over the past nine years and this year in particular.
Then, we listened to our keynote speaker, Craig Kielburger. A passionate and motivating child rights activist, Craig traced the transformation of Free The Children over the last two decades – from its founding, when he was only 12 years old, to an organization that works today in 8 countries. He talked of the incredible impact that our partnership has had both on the children themselves and on their communities.
Following the conference, our guests were treated to dessert and coffee, during which many continued to show their support by making generous donations. They also had an opportunity to speak to some of our partners: T. Jackson Kaguri of the Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project, Zahra Mohammed of the Stephen Lewis Foundation and Lorraine Swift and Nicole Farn of Change for Children.
Our grateful thanks to our many friends and supporters who made the evening such a success!
