February 28th @ 6:00 pm
Friends of Winds of Change,
Join us for an update on our progress helping farmers and their families reduce poverty in rural Nicaragua. Thisevent is intended to expand awareness of the Winds of Change initiative to support fundraising and to solicit interest from those who would like to travel with us to Nicargua in 2017. We are making plans for one or more service trips this year and are keen to solict interest and feedback.
The evening will be interactive and fun. This event is generously hosted by Dan Parkinson and his colleagues from Experience Point. You may remember Dan from the 2014 Big Fish Awards story telling contest where his story called "Ping & Maria" set the stage for the launch of Winds of Change.
John Shoust and Professor Amy Bilton will have just returned from Nicaragua with the latest team of engineering students from University of Toronto. They will give us an update on how the village of Pedro Arauz has progressed since we installed the prototype windmill one year ago.
For those who may have missed our event last May, we will screen the documentary film called "The Best of What We Are". This 18 minute film was written and directed for us by Erin Paul. It features the people of Pedro Arauz and a special guest appearance by Bruce Cockburn.
Winds of Change was created as a project to bring much needed low cost, locally sourced and fabricated windmill and irrigation technologies to rural Nicaragua.
Seating is limited and registration is required.
