106.7 The Drive: A Better World Canada Marks 25 Years


A Better World Canada is celebrating 25 years this weekend in Lacombe.

Co-founder Eric Rajah says they’ve brought over four people from Kenya to take part in celebrations.

“We have with us three project managers who manage our projects in Kenya. Our key feature will be a young girl by the name of Janet who has been speaking throughout Central Alberta at schools. She fell into a fire when she was three years old and was left to die.”

Rajah says Janet has gone under the knife 14 times over the last 10 years and thanks to A Better World’s rehab team, she is now rehabilitated and can lead a more normal life.

Rajah says the theme of this weekend’s celebration is focusing on what’s right with the world because society tends to focus so much on the opposite (Listen Below).

The schedule for Saturday begins at 9 a.m. with Janet speaking about ‘Celebrating Change.’ At 11 a.m. is ‘Celebrating What’s Right With the World.’ Both of those take place at Burman University’s (formerly Canadian University College) College Heights Church. Then a luncheon at 1 p.m. is sold out but ‘Celebrating Milestones’ and a book launch will happen at 3 p.m. at the Lacombe Memorial Centre.

All the talks are free to attend. For more information, visit www.abwcanada.ca.
