Our next gathering is open to discussion group participants & MPP members & all those who know Gillian Stewart. Gillian helped facilitate our discussion group until she started working in Western Samoa from 2016.
Gillian is the Programme Manager for Women in Business Development Incorporated (WIBDI) – Western Samoa.
WIBDI manages a Certified Organic Grower Group comprising 750 farming families who rely on agricultural production to generate income and savings on a regular basis, amongst other programmes.
Although Gillian has made huge gains for the families she works with, in terms of employment and income generation, she explains that the biggest persistent challenge remains ‘the poverty of opportunity’.
Gillian will share about her work and a thought provoking evening is guaranteed!
