Recognizing and thanking Winnipeg Foundation

Rotary WPP is delighted to have received support in 2015 for its youth education initiative Rotary Adventures in Human Rights (RAHR) from the Winnipeg Foundation.

A new Winnipeg Endowment Fund called “Be the Change Fund” provided $3,700 towards the delivery of one full day of transformative education in a newcomer area of Winnipeg at the Immigrant and Refugee Organization of Manitoba (IRCOM). This day was the highlight of the impactuful eight day program at the CMHR, Fort Whyte Alive, Neechi Commons, Tall Grass Prairie, Assiniboine Park and the Manitoba Legislative Building.

We express our gratitude to:

  • The Winnipeg Foundation for the funding:
  • Rotary Peace Fellow Alumni Noelle de Pape and Abdi Ahmed for designing and organizing the IRCOM day; and to
  • IRCOM staff and volunteers who made this day special by making their facility and their time available to serve RAHR students.

On behalf of Rotary WPP and the first class of WPP students of RAHR we give thanks.

The 2015 Annual Report of the Winnipeg Foundation featured this Grant to Rotary WPP with prominent photos and a report of the use of this Grant. Rotary WPP is honoured and grateful for this recognition.
