INSPIRE!africa is providing an opportunity for Canadians to make a profound difference in the lives of others in Rwanda by giving some of what we have, whether it is our time, money or skills.
Our focus is on supporting community-based initiatives in areas where help is most needed and where it will make the most difference in moving communities out of poverty and into self-sufficiency.
Education is an underlying theme as education is a powerful tool for creating a world where anything is possible.
It is that time of year again and we are very excited. Planning is underway for the annual INSPIRE!africa fundraiser in support of Rwanda's genocide survivors.
This year's event is a family friendly Pub Night.

Time: 7:00 pm and final silent auction items close at 9:30 pm
