Our fearless leader, Wanda Bedard, and 3 other members of the 60 million girls team (Wanda’s daughters Liah and Vida Fereydoonzad, and our graphic artist, Negin Atashband) are Sierra Leone-bound. They’re headed to the Koinadugu region, where 60 million girls is supporting a 2-year project with CAUSE Canada.
Wanda, Liah, Vida and Negin will visit some of the schools that are part of the program, join in on some of the after-school Peer Literacy groups, visit the school gardens and meet some of the students, teachers and girls who receive bursaries. Wanda will also be speaking at the Teachers’ Conference Opening Ceremony.
Stay tuned – we’ll be posting stories and photos from the trip when they return. In the meantime, you can click here to learn more about this project!
