Highlights from our April 27th event in Montreal

Over 100 guests attended our Earth Day themed luncheon at the Beaconsfield Golf Club. The event enabled us to share how education is empowering girls to face the disastrous impacts of extreme weather events in their communities and how their education will help worldwide in the fight against climate change.

Thank you to all the attendees and a very special thank you to 60 million girls’ talented photographer, Josiane Farand of L’Art de Capter, who captured the smiling faces of our guests.

It was wonderful to see everyone in person once again!
