This November, David Dyck and his son Andrew of Learmington will be cycling in Myanmar to raise money to support women-owned businesses and farming enterprises. They are travelling with MEDA (Mennonite Economic Development Associates), an international economic development organization whose mission is to create business solutions to poverty.
The Myanmar project endeavours to bridge the gap between poverty and opportunity by providing beneficiaries with both funding and business expertise. This five-year initiative aims to help 25,000 female entrepreneurs attain sustainable livelihoods for themselves and their families.
All donations to this project are multiplied seven times in impact with funding from Global Affairs Canada.
You can help David and Andrew achieve their fundraising goal of $20,000 by donating here.
Donations can also be sent directly to the MEDA office at 155 Frobisher Drive, Suite I-106, Waterloo, ON N2V 2E1. All monies raised will go directly to the project in Myanmar.
