Event description

Description

Join us for a day of culture, connection, and community engagement! ANIDA Day is a fundraising celebration that raises awareness about ANIDA’s international and Canadian programming.

This year, we have decided to focus ANIDA Day on our programming in Jamaica, a place where local communities in St. Elizabeth, Westmoreland, and Manchester are keen to partner with us in order to grow our programming.

ANIDA Day is a fundraising celebration—but it’s also a day where visitors are exposed to ideas and stories. How are strong communities abroad linked to strong communities at home? What are the root causes of inequality and what kinds of social services are most effective at reducing poverty? What does social and economic justice look like?

ANIDA Day is an inclusive event open to all community members who have an interest in reducing child poverty and promoting social and economic justice for communities both in Canada and abroad. All proceeds support ANIDA’s programming in Jamaica.

Registration for this event is free, but we encourage those interested to RSVP since seating is limited.

If you would like to support ANIDA but cannot join us on May 27, please consider donating through our Canada Helps page. (A charity tax receipt is provided.) You can find our page here: https://bit.ly/2Kcn4rR
