Join us at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver's Pacific Ballroom for an evening hosted by Princess Salimah Aga Khan, International Ambassador for the Children, honouring SOS Caregivers. Funds raised go towards the education and professionalization of SOS Caregivers
Last night Noorbanu had the joy of meeting Her Highness, Princess Salimah, Aga Khan and gifting her a few A Spicy Touch cookbooks .
Princess Salimah was in Calgary in her role as the SOS Children's Villages Global Ambassador for Children. And together with Special Representatives of SOS Children’s Villages, she hosted an evening of learning, fundraising and community building for Ugandan girls.
For more than 20 years, Princess Salimah, Aga Khan has been a passionate champion for the work of SOS Children's Villages and has witnessed first-hand SOS’ efforts to protect and care for orphaned, abandoned and neglected children.
There is much work to do in the way of investing in Ugandan girls.
Due to the educational gender gap, girls in Uganda are at a greater risk of suffering from poverty due to intermittent schooling, or absenteeism. Through SOS Children's Villages " Ugandan Girls Project" robust interventions have been developed to break barriers that prohibit girls from completing their education.
The funds raised through this event, will support SOS Children's Villages increase access, attendance, retention and education completion among 2000 girls living in the most marganilized communities in Uganda.
Noorbanu was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya in East Africa and was happy to attend and support this cause.
Thx to Noorbanu’s granddaughter Soraya Mohamed for the great photos.
