National Child Day Luncheon - Child and Family Poverty Reduction in the Central Okanagan

Join us on Tuesday November 15th at 11:30 - 2:30 to celebrate National Child Day with a facilitated planning session with Mark Holmgren on Child and Family Poverty Reduction in the Central Okanagan.

This is a continuation of the community process on child and family poverty started last year on National Child Day 2015. At this event we will be asking for community commitment to this process and identifying next steps for our community.

Guest Speaker: Mark Holmgren "Ending Poverty in my Community"

Mark Holmgren will share his experience and perspectives about how to effectively address poverty through local leadership and collaborative actions across sectors. Learn about how other local communities have led the way and achieved significant progress to reduce poverty and how collective impact approaches to community change can make a difference in your community. Mark will also share some key trends and data around poverty and its impact.

National Child Day

November 20 is Universal Children’s Rights Day. This day is an opportunity to take stock of the state of children’s rights in various countries and become aware of the many injustices perpetrated against children worldwide.

This is an opportunity for Soleil des orphelins (SDO) to report on the morale and physical circumstances of sponsored orphans.

This is the perfect time to think about telling those around you about SDO’s sponsorship program and encourage them to support a good cause and save children in need. Share your experience.
