Join us for another home edition of Local Brews + Global Views with Sean Burke of the HOPE International Development Agency (HOPE)
HOPE is an organization that works to improve the supply of basic human necessities for those most in need in the Global South. Sean will share about HOPE’s project in India, providing knowledge and skills for youth – especially girls – to survive and thrive in an urban setting.
On World Children’s Day (Nov 20), we celebrate 30 years since the UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. World Children’s Day is a time to celebrate, and a time to take action for children’s rights � including the right to education and vocational infoormation.
Join us to hear more about this important project engaging low-income youth in training sessions to learn tangible skills like financial responsibility, computer skills, and entrepreneurship. Learn how urban youth are gaining the opportunity to shape a better life not only for themselves, but for their families as well.
Bring your coffee & questions and join us for another “from home” edition of Local Brews + Global Views, as Sean leads this important discussion.
