This year, Devxchange, a global movement that facilitates the linking of Canadian volunteers with humanitarian initiatives around the world, celebrates 10 years of giving life to others through an awareness event in Barrie.
Devxchange links Canadian volunteers (including those from ethnic communities, recent university graduates and retirees) with indigenous organizations and their humanitarian initiatives in developing countries. They provide management and technical support to the volunteers as well as tax-deductible receipts for their donors. It’s a development exchange for change.
The evening event, “Seeds of Life”, will feature projects from more than 18 countries plus a chance to meet program leaders and support a project of your choice. Highlights will also include a cultural dance group, coffee ceremony, authentic Ethiopian cuisine and more.
Seeds of Life will be held on Nov. 11 at Emmanuel Baptist Church, 374 Salem Road, Barrie. Doors open at 6 pm with dinner to follow at 7 pm. Admission is free but you must register by Nov. 6.
