October 9th | Golden Harvest Fun-raiser Dinner
He's coming! You've all heard me talk endlessly about Father Charles Ogada. Well, he's coming to Toronto for two very special weeks!

Please join us as we gather to complete the cycle this harvest season by planting seeds of peace, health, and happiness around the world.

More about Father Charles.
What would you do if you suddenly became the parent of 20 children?
That is what Father Charles Ogada had to figure out when he took 20 children who were orphaned or severely abused into his care.
His story is extraordinary... starting with nothing in a remote destitute village, over the past eight years, he has helped to transform the Nigerian village of Ebe (in the Enugu district) into a flouishing "Joy Village" throught his many humanitarian projects provided free of cost to the villagers. These include: The Heart of Love Children's home for at risk children, The Liquid Love Water project (bringing water to the village for the first time), The Embodiments of Love Academy Primary and new Secondary School, The Biarienu Food Program for students and staff who are struggling with food insecurity, and the Aruike Specialty Hospital. In 2017 he was awarded a large international Rotary Club Award called "The One" to support his tireless work. Visit Joy Villages to learn more.
