IAG Screening at Templeton High School

We had the opportunity to visit with some Vancouver High School students at Templeton Secondary to talk about the issue of gendercide & gender discrimination. We showed the film "It's A Girl," followed by a lengthy discussion on the issue. The students were saddened to learn about the different stories brought up in the film.

It sounded all very unreal to them. I thank teacher Ms. Murphy for the invitation to bring this to her students as she too was moved and compelled to do something after she first watched the film at our Vancouver screening. So very grateful for teachers such as her, who want her students to reach out to different worlds, to react and see that one person can make a difference. The discussion lasted awhile, a student pointed out the discrimination her mother faced after giving birth to 3 daughters and the impact it had on her. I hope these students will take the lead and will want to create change however they can. A pleasure meeting them all.

Notes of Hope 2013

On March 8th GirlKIND and Abbotsford Community Services partnered with Dave Kandal Elementary students to take part in our 2nd Annual Notes of Hope. These notes are well wishes, notes of empowerment that will be given to girls that live in orphanges where they either have been abandoned by their parents or rescued from being trafficked.

These notes along with personal care supplies will be sent to a home in India & Cambodia. It is a small gesture of kindness to let them know there is a whole other world thinking of them.  It is also a valuable lesson to the kids creating them as they get creative and constructive they learn about a whole other world and what it means to reach out to someone as well as value what they have. I had fun watching the kids get creative & colourful. Thanks to Anoop, Ty, Balraj and Dave Kandal Elementary.
