Help send Indigenous youth to UN conference

UNblast

Help send an indigenous young person this April to the 16th session of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. 

As Teanna Ducharme wrote to you in December her participation on this UN conference was “a life-changing experience, bringing me in touch with young people from across the globe and learning how much we have in common. We shared our dreams and talked about our strategies for overcoming the challenges of poverty and isolation and promoting our identity and our culture that we all face. I returned home even more proud of my heritage and more determined to make a difference.”

Thanks to the generosity of the CWY family we are half way towards meeting our $2,500 objective, which will cover the costs of sending one youth to New York. Help us reach our goal and donate .
