Once again it’s that time of year… that’s right the 6th Annual INSPIRE!africa fundraiser to benefit the widows and orphans of the Rwandan genocide.  Mark your calendars for November 15.

This year’s event is titled “Faces of Rwanda”. The group of participants who traveled to Rwanda on this year’s volunteer trip will share their experiences about meeting the wonderful people that benefit from the many programs sponsored by INSPIRE!africa. The evening will also include a silent auction, a blind auction, and performances by Rwandanese dancers as well as hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. The evening is sure to be an inspiring night!

The event will take place at Webster’s Galleries, 812 11th Ave SW on Thursday November 15thfrom 4h30 to 7h30pm. Tickets are $45 and need to be purchased in advance. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to buy your tickets.

Attached is the poster for the fundraiser and we would appreciate your help in spreading the word and getting new friends and family to attend our “Faces of Rwanda” event.  Feel free to put it up in your office, local coffee shop or wherever you hang out.

If you can't make it but would like to help, you can send a donation to INSPIRE!africa, 2330 3rd Ave NW, Calgary, T2N 0K8.

Last year was such a great success.  With your help we raised $76,000 to support the many programs that INSPIRE!africa is involved with.  We are looking to our fantastic supporters again this year to help us continue the incredible work being done to help change the lives of Rwanda’s many widows and orphans.

We are also looking for your help in collecting silent auction items. If you have something to donate, please contact Suzanne McInnes at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
