Thank You To Our Bikers!
A big thank you to everyone who rode, ran, or walked in support of CPAR in the Canada Africa Partnership Ride this weekend!

This is injera, a pancake-like bread found everywhere in Ethiopia.

These are Ethiopian Beef Tibs - their version of a stir fry!
Eaten with injera (recipe coming later today!), a delicious new way to make beef. Start discovering Ethiopian food with this dish and if you like it, you can download our cookbook for more recipes.

We hope to be able to build many more of these in the future for other primary schools in the area. If you'd like to help us reach that goal, feel free to donate!

We are pleased to introduce our new Executive Director: Kathrina Loeffler
To close out our International Women’s Week celebration, we are pleased to introduce our new Executive Director: Kathrina Loeffler. Kathrina’s interest in international development started at a young age, when she lived in Papua New Guinea and then in Lesotho. Those experiences sparked in her a passion to learn about other cultures and a drive to contribute to ending poverty.
Meet Sandra Abeje, the Senior Program Officer in our CPAR office in Ethiopia
Having worked for over five years in various positions within the Ethiopian health system, she is the perfect person to be responsible for CPAR’s projects with the Fitche hospital, including our volunteer program. “Being part of this project is such an inspiration and has a big influence on improving medical emergency services being delivered in the health facilities. I aspire to have this kind of project expanded to other parts of the country, and to other hospitals and health centers.”
