CARE National Conference

Hundreds of CARE supporters have come together in Washington, D.C. to take part in an inspiring three-day event to gain new perspectives on the issues facing poor women, families and communities around the world. TVE’s Kelly and Amy will be in attendance, learning new strategies for affecting change in the developing world and promoting our upcoming service trips and projects in Haiti, Kenya and Uganda!

Kelly and Amy will hear messages from former First Lady Laura Bush, Co-chair of the Gates Foundation, Melinda Gates, Dr. Rajiv Shah of USAID,¬†Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues Melanne Verveer and international journalist Judy Woodruf ¬†(they’ll also get to enjoy entertainment by India.Arie and Michael Franti, not that we’re jealous!) For the rest of the week, Kelly and Amy will be networking and finding new partners to help us develop micro-enterprise projects in Haiti, renovate our medical clinic in Kenya and sponsor community tourism in Uganda, just to name a few. This will be a great opportunity for TVE and TVC to connect with supporters of our mission of moving forward by giving back!
