The Giving Back Workshop- The Pendo Project (Georgetown)

  • Generations Physiotherapy Centre 371 Mountainview Road South Georgetown, ON, L7G 5X3 Canada (map)

This workshop teaches girls that giving back feels good and does amazing things for others.

****Mothers are encouraged to join their daughters for this valuable experience, but not required**

We will be gathering to create some beautiful pieces that girls will sell to raise money for the Pendo Project initiative, headed up by local Georgetown mother Kelly Friis and her daughter Shyla.

We will be learning about African culture while we partake in this crafty afternoon. We can spark up the inner entrepreneur by selling our pieces to friends and family. All proceeds to go the Pendo Project.

Let’s teach our girls the meaning of giving and helping one another. #strengthinunity

$15 donation to cover materials.

Welcome to Pendo Project

Pendo Project was started by Tracy Pepper, a Canadian woman living in New Zealand. While climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for Ovarian Cancer Awareness, Tracy fell in love with the people and the African culture. She could not ignore the need for basic standard of life that we, who live elsewhere, take for granted.

Pendo means love in Swahili and that is, in fact, the cornerstone of the entire project.

We are a love generation. We will focus that love on supporting vulnerable women and children in East Africa.

Currently, we have initiatives in Kisoro, Uganda and in parts of Tanzania, that support education, basic healthcare and entrepreneurship.
