> Hello, Dr. Lima.
> I hope you are having a seamless start to your semester. My name is Morgan
> Morris. I am a senior at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY and I am also an
> intern at Girls Education Collaborative (GEC).
> I would like to invite you to our annual International Day of the Girl
> Wednesday, October 14, 2020
> This year we will be hosting a virtual event that will include:
> Virtual networking with other crusaders in the fight for a gender
> equal world.
> Welcome from Anne Wadsworth, Executive Director
> A special GEC video premier
> Video messages straight from KGSS and the school’s “Pioneers”
> And much more!!!
> If you or anyone from your institution are interested in
> registering/attending, you can click this link
> <https://secure.qgiv.com/event/idg2020/register/>. Individual tickets are
> $25 and students only pay $20*.
> If you are not familiar with our organization, GEC believes that “there’s
> nothing a girl can’t do”. We provide support (financial assistance,
> partnership, and project management) to people and organizations dedicated
> to ending gender discrimination and empowering girls through education. We
> take collaboration very seriously and feel that linking arms with
> individuals who understand the needs of their communities is one of the
> best ways to create social impact. One of the organizations that we
> maintain a strong relationship with is the Immaculate Heart Sisters of
> Africa in Kitenga Village, Tanzania. We have been working in conjunction
> with them since 2012 to provide funds for The Kitenga Secondary School for
> Girls. This year, we are celebrating their first graduating class and we
> couldn’t be more excited to share this milestone with you!
> Looking forward to seeing you on October 14th!

> *If any student is having financial issues, please contact me. We know
> that this year has created varying financial stress for many individuals
> and we want to alleviate as much of that as possible. I also encourage
> students to attend with clubs or organizations to subsidize the cost.
