Welcome to my challenge page - if you have found yourself here, I already want to thank you for your support!
As my third year participating in the Global Solidarity Challenge, I'm incredibly excited for multiple reasons. This year, we're focusing on Canadians and our individual and structural contributions to inequality - equally, we're focusing on how we can collectively push for social justice. I'm also honoured to be leading Team Power Rangers and engaging in an intense competition to be named Top Team of GSC 2017!
During my week, I am going to undertake multiple challenges. First, I commit to no lights and no frivolous energy consumption. Second, I commit to no washing machines, no dryers, and only 2 outfits for the week (solidarity with team Trend Defiers!). Third, I commit to joining the conversation on energy and resource extraction abroad with the goal of getting 10 people to send letters to the MPs - if you can't donate, this is the opportunity for you to still be engaged!
Thank you for your contributions. Having volunteered with VIDEA now for multiple years, I cannot think of an organization with more integrity. VIDEA treats the partners that they work with in east and southern Africa (focused on human rights, environment and gender) as just that - equal partners on equal footing who require long-term, stable relationships to tackle important issues and making lasting changes. Your donations help keep the fight for social justice alive.
