MEDA Chapter - Winnipeg
Chapter Chair: Brent Kroeker
Join us for lunch on Thursday, May 3 for an inside look at MEDA's work in Myanmar with Cavelle Dove, Country Project Manager.
Myanmar is a country in transition with a rapidly changing economy after emerging from decades of relative isolation. MEDA's project in Myanmar is aimed at increasing women’s participation in the country’s evolving economy and becoming active, respected and empowered economic actors and leaders.
Speaker: Cavelle Dove has been MEDA's Country Project Manager in Myanmar since August 2015. Cavelle has over 20 years’ experience in international and local community development. In 2012 she moved to Myanmar where she co-founded a social enterprise known as Yangonbakehouse, which focuses on developing livelihood skills for women at the bottom of the pyramid. Cavelle holds a BSW from Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and completed further graduate work at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and Asia Pacific Theological Seminary in Baguio, Philippines. She is a candidate for a Masters in Human Rights and Peace Studies at Mahidol University in Thailand.
