ACGC Top 30 Under 30
WEIF is proud to announce that two of our members, Erin Balcom and Julia Rudzitis, are honoured recipients of the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation's Top 30 Under 30 Albertans working for global change.

Our Youngest Donor
At just 8 years old, Keltie's open-heartedness and generosity make her a role model for us all. For her birthday Keltie decided to give a gift to children in our Manthan program in Bihar: with Keltie's donation WEIF was able to purchase a cow for the school, which will provide milk to children in remote, impoverished communities.
WEIF Featured in The Edmonton Journal
Heather McPherson, Executive Director for Alberta Council for Global Cooperation, wrote an op-ed in The Edmonton Journal emphasizing the importance of empowering women in the fight against social inequality and extreme poverty. WEIF was one of several organizations highlighted for their contributions to improving the education, health, and well-being of women and children in communities across the globe.
New Partnerships
WEIF has proudly joined hands with several companies and organizations in the fight against global poverty — Vibrant Village Foundation, Luke Four Foundation, Your Tea: ChariTea, Afsana Dance Group, Bridge Street United Church Foundation, Trinity Jubilee Foundation, and LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics.
