Description

Calling All Systems Change Leaders!

The 2019 Kumvana Gala brings industry, student leaders, government and non-profits together to exchange ideas and find inspiration. Gather with over a hundred systems change leaders from diverse backgrounds in a networking setting with canapés and drinks to celebrate people striving to improve the world and eliminate poverty.

This year, EWB's Kumvana Fellow, Isaac Adogbase, will be sharing his struggle and successes in founding Bolgatanga Baskets. The company, a social enterprise, sells beautiful, handmade baskets from villages surrounding Bolgatanga in Upper East Ghana. They employ a family-based approach and aims to improve the working and living conditions of basket-weaving families in the region.

This year's gala will celebrate UN Sustainable Development Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth. Other speakers and several organizations showcasing their work in this domain will be present as well.

Our goal is to fundraise for EWB's overseas ventures, just like the Kumvana Program, that celebrates young African leaders and brings them to Canada to help them further accelerate the social changes they're driving forward.

The evening will include food, wine, a silent auction, prizes, and plenty of networking opportunities.


Stay tuned for more details! Coming soon.
