Fundraiser for CARE Canada

Jane Coop Benefit Concert

CARE Canada and the members of I Am Powerful Vancouver have joined forces to offer an exclusive performance by world renowned pianist, Jane Coop, on November 19th, 2013, in support of a women's and girl's empowerment project in Bolivia.

Throughout Latin America, 12.6 per cent of the population lives in extreme poverty. In Bolivia, that number more than doubles with almost 33 per cent of Bolivians living in extreme hardship.

CARE’s Tukuy Yanapana ("we all collaborate") project in Bolivia aims to improve the profitability and competitiveness of family farms and small enterprises increasing incomes for women, men and youth.

Our goal on this evening is to raise a minimum of $25,000 which will empower women and girls to lift themselves and their families out of poverty by:

• educating women and men about gender roles in labour
• raising the visibility of unpaid work performed by women
• providing access to professional information and training, supplies and equipment
• working with municipal governments to develop policies and regulations that support small farmers and 

Our event on November 19th will be a meaningful evening of music and mingling in support of this project.  Each guest will have the opportunity to  give a gift towards CARE Canada’s work in Bolivia.  While gift amounts will vary, a minimum of $250 will be recommended.  

Thank you for visiting our giving page to consider making a tax-deductable contribution to our efforts, today!

CARE Canada thanks Jane who, when approached to do this benefit said, “ I did not have to think twice because the cause is tremendous.” 

CARE is extraordinarily grateful to  Jane and to  the members of I Am Powerful Vancouver for organizing this special event, in support of CARE’s poverty fighting work.
