A week full of co-op celebrations!

It's Co-op Week! There is so much going on this week we thought we would devote Dispatch to keeping you informed about the weeks highlights;
  • Julius Turyahebwa, from the Uganda Co-operative Alliance (UCA), is on a speaking tour of Western Canada. To learn more about farmers in Uganda building
    co-operative paths out of poverty, watch the short video below "Co-operating for Change."
  • The CDF online auction is live!  Check out the amazing items up for grabs and start bidding now, click here.  
  • Where in the World is CCA?  Take a look at a snapshot of CCA's current international projects around the world and see for yourself how co-operation among
    co-operatives really works. 

Co-operating for Change
Julius Turyahebwa, is shown above in Bweyele, Uganda, talking to co-op members about conservation farming.  A farmer at heart, Julius is eager to see what the Prairies have to offer during his time in Canada and to talk about the work CCA does in Uganda.  Follow his Canadian journey on Twitter or Facebook with #FollowJulius.
To learn more about this CCA/UCA project watch this short video by CCA volunteer Jenn Smith Nelson.

 Where in the world is CCA?


Co-op Week is about celebrating how much Canadian  Co-operatives have collectively helped to build this country and

to recognize their continuing contributions at home and abroad.
