Alongside Partners in the Horn of Africa, we held our first gala fundraiser on November 30, 2015 at the Ukranian Cultural Centre in Vancouver. The evening program included a reception, Ethiopian buffet dinner, speed painting, and silent auction, alongside updates on the work and impact of the Columbia Institute and Partners in the Horn of Africa. Ken Georgettti, President Emeritus of the Canadian Labour Congress will emcee the event. Proceeds raised at event to support sustainable community development, education, and leadership building projects in Canada and Ethiopia. View photos here.
