Thurs. October 18th. - Dr. Cate Dewey "The Children of Bukati"
Educating orphans in rural Kenya through food and permaculture When Professor Dr. Cate Dewey, chair of the Population Medicine department at the Ontario Veterinary College visited Kenya a decade ago to work with small-holder pig farmers and prevent human epilepsy, she found herself unexpectedly interacting with a group of desperately poor AIDS orphans who were not attending school. Her move to initiate a school lunch program led her on a far-reaching adventure to enrich the lives of the children, and a life-changing event for herself.
