In pursuit of 30 by 30, I have learned about sustainable livelihood initiatives, which in turn is shaping my career. There are some amazing NGOs (non-governmental organization), CBOs (community based organizations), IOs (international organizations) and government agencies out there working towards poverty eradication, biodiversity conservation and other worthy causes.
Those whom I have personally worked for are:
The Montreal Diet Dispensary: Providing nutrition and other counselling to pregnant women in need.
Project Chance: Providing subsidized housing for single student mothers.
Oxfam Quebec: Implementing sustainable solutions to poverty and injustice.
Enda Maghreb: Working together for human development that is respectful to the environment.
La Cooperative Nakasha: A women’s group in Morocco creating traditional weaving for recycled materials.
People Resources and Conservation Foundation (PRCF): Promoting conservation, protection, and wise use of natural resources with sound social and economic development.
