Learning Beyond BordersThese are just a few of the pieces from this year's Art for Awareness Auction! With the support and generosity of local artists, we are fundraising for primary schools in rural Uganda. Have a look through the auction to find some amazing art (and great Christmas gifts). By participating in the auction you will be supporting a global education initiative as well as local artists as 50% of the proceeds will go towards LBB supported schools and 50% will go to the artist. Visit our event at https://www.facebook.com/events/183480205909333/ to view dozens of more art pieces!Learning Beyond Borders added 9 new photos — in Edmonton, Alberta.09.12.2018 at 04:15 amLike

Learning Beyond BordersA big thank you to everyone that came out to our Celebrating Uganda event earlier this year! Dr. Arif was able to deliver the map to the students of Kakooga Primary School. They loved seeing the places that UofA students had moved from and were surprised that they came from all over the world. Hopefully we’ll be able to bring them something next year too!07.10.2018 at 03:13 amLike
When you're looking for a snack on the streets of Uganda, the rolex you need to try isn't one that tells time. Made as an omelette and vegetables rolled up in chapati (flatbread), the rolex is one of Uganda's favourite street foods!
Here's a photo taken by Hannah Brooks Photography of a street stall and skilled vendor ready to start cooking!

Learning Beyond BordersWhile it has been a mix of rain and sunshine here in Alberta, in Uganda, June-August is the dry season. If you're still planning a vacation, this is a great time to go trekking or go on a safari in Uganda!
The photos below were taken just as the rainy season was taking off last year. Thank you to Hannah Brooks Photography for sharing these photos! Check out more from Hannah by visiting her FB page or website: https://hannahbrooksphotography.com/03.07.2018 at 04:25 pmLike
Learning Beyond BordersThe AEGY in Kamuli, Uganda are doing incredible work. By teaching both young girls AND boys about menstruation, they are ensuring menstruation is not something to fear or be ashamed of. They are ensuring young girls have access to resources and knowledge for menstrual hygiene.
It is NOT okay for young girls to lose educational opportunities due to stigma. Thanks for your inspirational work AEGY in creating equal access to education and thank you Alberta Council for Global Cooperation for sharing.

Learning Beyond BordersThis week's spotlight is on Rediet. When we talked about cultural exchange between Uganda and Canada, one thing Rediet envisioned for students in Canada was greater community building.
Inspired by his words (below), we encourage YOU to build the courage to talk to someone who may at first seem very different from you. There may be more common ground than you realize!
