GirlKIND + The Mosaic Institute

GirlKIND is very grateful to be a part of The Mosaic Institute's "Next Generation: Global Citizenship Project." A project that is partnered with the Vancouver School Board to involve and engage Vancouver high school students to help promote peace and active global citizenship as well as develop youth leadership & encourage civic participation. This is an amazing opportunity to actively see youth be a part of social change, we look forward to seeing the outcomes of this initiative.


IWD & 1 Billon Rising | Abbotsford

Many of us gathered together to mark International Women's Day and One Billion Rising at Civic Plaza in Abbotsford on March 8, 2014 as a part of a worldwide movement to end violence against women and girls. It was a collective effort by all our respective partners to make this day possible which included: The Reach Gallery Museum, GirlKIND Foundation, Centre for Indo-Canadian Studies at the University of the Fraser Valley, Abbotsford Community Services, Women's Resource Society of the Fraser Valley, Unifor local 114, International Centre for Criminal Law Reform & Criminal Justice Policy & the Abbotsford Police Dept.

During our outdoor part we danced in the rain, drummed, listened to each others stories and gained strength in one another. For our indoor part we watched a short documentary on how women in Afghanistan are making a difference in their communities to better advocate for women's rights through film, art & music. Thereafter we listened to the compelling story of our keynote speaker Rumana Monzur whose very journey left many of us inspired and grateful for all that we have. It was an incredible day with some incredible women.
