Global Studies Student Association African Harambee Dinner

Wednesday, Feb 17th
From 6pm-9pm in the Great Hall

We will be focusing on African development and water issues which correlates with GSSA's service-learning project in Chebukwa, Kenya where we will build a clinic and rainwater catchment system with the Nafula Foundation. Harambee in Swahili means "all pull together" and that's exactly what this evening is all about.

The night will feature:
-Over 15 organizations involved with African development and water issues
-African Drum Performance from Hayor Bibimma Dance Company
-FREE African food from Kilimanjaro Cafe and Casablanca Restaurant

Three Key Note Speakers:
-Shiney Varghese- Co-Chair of the United Nations Water Commission; Senior Policy Analyst at IATP
-Professor Tade Okediji- Professor, African Studies and Applied Economics
-Sr. Rosita Aranita- Water Projects in Africa through CSJ St. Paul

Come Pledge to help Water and Development in Africa and join the fun!
