International Development Week

Next week is International Development Week 2019 & we are inviting you to take the time to celebrate & support the difference Canadian aid is making around the world. This year’s theme is “Together for Gender Equality.” Women are often more affected by hunger & shoulder a disproportionate responsibility for growing food for their families in many developing countries. We will be talking about this more. In the meantime here are some things you can do:

 Create & post a video on social media saying why you support & celebrate Canadian aid, or reading the postcard text, using the hashtags #IDW2019, #MoreCanada & #CanadaforHer.

 Send a note to your MP encouraging the government to increase its commitment to international assistance, so that more people can enjoy full, peaceful & productive lives.

 Visit the IDW2019 website to share your story about making a difference, get ideas for taking action, or to find events happening in your area.

Thank you from the Canadian Foodgrains Bank for joining with thousands of other Canadians and taking action this International Development Week!
