Join us on April 20th, at 11 am for a wonderfully informative event.
Marian Jacques will present and discuss her recent experience in Tanzania. Marian spent six months working with TAFCOM, a non-governmental organization, assisting people affected by HIV and AIDS. Bags and purses made by women who work in TAFCOM’s tailoring center will also be available to purchase. Learn more and RSVP on the Facebook event page!
One of our board members, Kathy Rausch, will speak about her recent travels to Sri Lanka and one of our fun vendors, Mr. Ellie Pooh. They produce handmade paper made from – you guessed it – elephant pooh! Come hear Kathy’s experiences and join in on the discussion to find out how Mr. Ellie Pooh is helping our world.
