Join us for Local Brews + Global Views with Tiyahna Ridley-Padmore of World Vision Canada

What happens when two artists from different parts of the world meet up in rural Shinyanga region in Tanzania, and embark on a journey of learning, exploration and creation? Join us to learn more their visit to rural communities in Tanzania, and their surprise at what they found – some of the fiercest feminists they had ever met. Learn more about the 1000 Day Journey, a World Vision Canada initiative that supports the health of women and children in vulnerable communities in Kenya, Tanzania, Bangladesh and Myanmar.

Join us at Thom Bargen for a cup of locally brewed coffee and learn more about the project, and hear the story behind “Shujaa”, a massive painting being showcased in Winnipeg.

We’ll provide the snacks while Tiyahna leads this important discussion. We encourage questions and conversation as we explore how World Vision Canada is working to ensure good nutrition for women and children in vulnerable communities.
