I am passionate about the power of literacy and education as the key to improving the lives of children in Africa!
For over 30 years, I have supported CODE (formerly the Canadian Organization for Development through Education) as a donor, as a Chair of its Board of Directors and now as a Director of the CODE Foundation. I have visited schools supported by CODE in both Tanzania and Ghana and have seen firsthand the difference that CODE’s programs make. The success of CODE’s programs is evidenced by the number of programs that have been awarded the UNESCO International Literacy Prize and the strong financial support of the Canadian Government.
I have led climbs of Mount Kilimanjaro in 2006, 2010, 2014 and, with the tremendous dedication of my fellow climbers and their supporters, we have helped secure over $2 million for children in Africa. I am climbing Kilimanjaro again this year to ensure that CODE is able to continue its important work.
Thank you for your support!
