ABCD Directors are Guest Speakers

On December 2/11 Directors Terry and Frank were invited to speak at a one day conference held in Markham, Ontario in the Council Chamber of the Markham Civic Centre. The conference was called Turn Ed Up! and was organized by an organization of secondary school students called Turn The Page. This youth organization aims to facilitate collaboration amongst secondary school students across York Region towards addressing global poverty. Using ABCD as an illustration I spoke about making a positive impact by doing something which you are passionate about. Terry spoke about how social enterprises can sustain technological solutions to enhance education. One example Terry used was the solar water bottle with battery storage prototype.

The conference was attended by 200 secondary school students and was a big success. These students have immense passion and dedication to making a difference in the world. We thank them for the opportunity to join them in their good work.
