You are cordially invited to a screening of "A Small Act" as a fundraiser for Education Beyond Borders (EBB) at Vancouver Technical Secondary School on Thursday, January 20, 2011 .
The film that will be screened is "A Small Act," which takes place in rural Kenya. When Hilde Back sponsored a young, Kenyan student, she thought nothing of it. She certainly never expected to hear from him, but years later she does. Now a Harvard graduate and a Human Rights Lawyer for the United Nations, Chris Mburu decides to find the stranger that changed his life. Inspired by her generosity, he starts a scholarship program of his own and names it for his former benefactor.
Using a strong narrative, the film interweaves seemingly separate lives into a cohesive whole. With clarity and grace, "A Small Act", bears witness to the ripple effect a single action can create.
EBB kindly requests your presence and support in this fundraiser. Your kindness and generosity will go a long way in empowering and enhancing collaboration amongst educators near and far.
Tickets can be purchased for a nominal price of $10 per ticket from Mali Bain, Aarthi Naidu, Katharine Kan or the following 10,000 Villages locations after January 7, 2011:
929 Denman Street, Vancouver
2909 West Broadway, Vancouver
