Event: Women Empowering the Next Generation of Women- Edmonton, AB

Last year, SOS Children’s Villages Canada had the pleasure of hosting the Beyond All SOSLimits Gala where Her Highness Princess Salimah Aga Khan, SOS Children’s Villages Global Ambassador for the children, was the guest of honour for an evening of learning, community building and fundraising in support of vulnerable girls in Uganda. This June 9th, join SOS Children’s Villages Canada and a powerful network of women for an afternoon of tea and delicious treats as we continue the work of Her Highness Princess Salimah Aga Khan, of empowering marginalized girls through education.

There is much work to do in the way of investing in Ugandan girls.

Due to the educational gender gap, girls in Uganda are at a greater risk of suffering from poverty due to intermittent schooling, or absenteeism.

Through SOS Children’s Villages Ugandan Girls Project, robust interventions have been developed to break barriers that prohibit girls from completing their education.

Join us for an afternoon of tea and treats as we continue the work of empowering marginalized girls through education.
