International Women’s Day – WUSC SFU and Amnesty International – Education Themed Carnival Games

On the 10th of March 2014, a wonderful Monday, UNICEF SFU held an Education Themed Carnival in Convocation Mall, and WUSC SFU and Amnesty International were honored to be hosted. This was a commemoration of the International Women’s Day.

WUSC SFU was raising awareness about the Shine A Light campaign, and Amnesty International was promoting education through their Human Rights motto, “Education is a Human Right”.

It was a fun-filled event which included a ‘Captain Hook Bean Bag Toss’ and a ‘Spirit Liquid Pong’ an imitation of beer pong. We had some questions, regarding the importance of education, that we were asking all the participants. We were happy to hand out Camino chocolates and some candy to everyone 🙂

Ana Afanasyeva’s Blog – Volunteering in Botswana in WUSC

I keep forgetting to put up Ana’s blog. For most who don’t know, Ana is WUSC SFU’s Events Coordinator and she is currently in Botswana for the International Seminar. She is volunteering with WUSC Botswana as an International Student Manager for 12 weeks.

We all miss her here at WUSC SFU, but we are excited about the change that she is making in Botswana. Please read her blog, Diary of a Year Long Travels, which is written in away that makes you feel as though you are experiencing life with her 🙂

We are looking forward to her coming back, but for now, enjoy the Beautiful African continent 🙂

We love you and miss you Ana (Banana)

WUSC BC Regional Meeting, 15th Feb 2014 at UBC

As usual every time the local committee members meet, there is a lot of fun, we helped each other grow by learning from the successes of others. The meeting was the 2nd Annual Regional meeting, and it is a really good tradition that is going to make the West Coast members network more. The WUSC Local committees in attendance were UBC, UVic, VIU, Royal Roads Uni (They want to start a committee), UNBC, and SFU. It was a very interesting time, having Michelle Manks, who is the SRP Senior Officer -WUSC OTTAWA and Claire Doherty, our BC Regional coordinator present.

More photos are coming up soon, and more social events are too 🙂
