In the name of peace and shaping our futures through conversations that matter, the Peace Café is an ongoing initiative that provides an opportunity for individuals to produce community based solutions for global challenges and encourages "reconciliation and connection" through open dialogue.
Hope and Healing
Co-sponsored by the Mir Centre for Peace and Sustainable Selkirk
Let your heart swell with hope this Earth Day. Join us in welcoming local physician, Dr Shelina Musaji, who will present on an exciting and innovative project in Borneo, Indonesia. Alam Selat Lestari (ASRI) provides high-quality health care while conserving rainforest and saving orangutans by dramatically reducing illegal logging, much of which was motivated by local residents' needs for cash to pay for health services. Dr Musaji will share slides from her (pre-COVID) travels and months of volunteering at this clinic with her family. Come hear how you, too, can volunteer and be part of this good-news story.
