Day of the African Child - Education for All

June 15, 2017

The Ottawa-Gatineau Grandmothers Advocacy Network (GRAN) is hosting an advocacy event on Thursday, June 15, 2017 from 7:00-9:00 at the Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa on 30 Cleary Ave to celebrate the UN Day of the African Child. The event will be a celebration and an opportunity to communicate the critical need for our Canadian government to increase its funding to education in development. We have planned an informative and entertaining evening on education in sub-Saharan Africa told through drama, storytelling and music. Big Soul Project and the Tina Rufaro Marimba Band will be helping us celebrate.

GRAN is composed of volunteer members across Canada who have committed to and advocate for grandmothers and vulnerable children in Africa in the areas of health, education and ending violence. We look forward to seeing you there. We welcome new members and volunteers who share our passion for social justice, equality and human rights
