My bags are packed. Here’s the plan: 21 missions of love for the next 21 days. I’ll be away until the beginning of spring. I’m going to Island Lake, Manitoba, to learn, share and draw inspiration from First Nations communities.
There are five of us on the team, from EXEKO and the Club, all working hand in hand. We will cook together, eat together, play games, dance and bounce ideas off one another about how to raise the self-esteem of the young people we are going to visit. Our goal is to increase their sense of engagement and pride in their Aboriginal heritage.
Most of all, we are overjoyed at the thought of meeting all these new people. And so it begins!
