The speaker will be Dr Izzeldin Abuelaish, internationally known human rights and peace activist. He has established The Daughters for Life Foundation which provides scholarships to women students in the Middle East so they may pursue higher education and become agents of change.
His topic will be Women’s Role: From Darkness and Conflict to Light and Peace.
Tickets are $65.00 and are available through the Presidents of the six Toronto clubs. Proceeds will go to the CFUW Charitable Trust to support the National Scholarships set up to honour the memory of the fourteen women students. To date, over $27,000.00 has been raised by this event.
