This is a fundraising event in partnership with PODA (Partnerships for Opportunities Development Association) an NGO and grass roots collaboration that strives to support sustainable development in communities in Uganda. Their projects aim to empower African communities with sustainable revenue building and educational opportunities. The profits generated by this fundraiser will go to 2 of their many innovative projects:
The community beekeeping initiative- Helping buy new hives, bee suits and a smoker as well as providing village residents with apiary training. This program is both revenue generating and conservationist, as the bees keep elephants out of agricultural areas in turn protecting them from potential poaching.
Sewing project- Supplying sewing machines and materials for reusable pads, so female students have equal opportunity of education as well as repairing student uniforms.

This event will take place at Copper Owl
April 2nd 8pm until 11pm
tickets are $10
available through Kate Walter, Em Barr or Jennifer Kings
