BRAMPTON, ON, May 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Kevin McKay, Director of Development
at PI Canada, announced the arrival of Hope In Action Tour speaker
David Umune, the president of Nigerian NGO, TETMI. David will be
traveling throughout Ontario and Western Canada raising awareness for
their various children at risk and improved education initiatives in
Currently, children under the age of 15 make up 45% of Nigeria's
population and due to extreme poverty almost half of those children do
not attend school. This results in child labour and early marriage for
young girls and in some cases enslavement of children. The schools
available in Eboni State have poor infrastructure. The lack of
education, medical facilities, and clean water are endemic realities.
David's team is working to change this harsh reality for more than 1,500
students attending three TETMI run private primary schools and one
secondary school. "We are passionate about delivering holistic
development and true transformation to the hardest and most
impoverished rural places in south-east Nigeria," says Umune.
We invite you to hear David's stories of transformation and to meet him
personally. Please visit www.partnersinternational.ca/hope-in-action-tour to see a complete listing of all speaking engagements.
