Marquis Project Announces Global Citizenship Award Recipient & Annual Event featuring Beny Mwenda

January 30th, 2016 by admin

Good afternoon,

It is with great pleasure that I attach the following two press releases for The Marquis Project.

The first deals with our overseas partner the Tanzania Society for Agriculture Education and Extension (TSAEE) speakers tour featuring Project Officer Beny Mwenda who will engage in over 30 speaking events in Southwestern Manitoba including the keynote speaking event on February 20th at the Canadian Fair Trade network conference in Winnipeg. Beny will begin his speaking engagements at the Marquis Annual dinner on February 7th (the start of International Development Week) with a lecture on partnership projects between The Marquis Project, CARES, MCIC and TSAEE.

In addition to his presentation, Beny will also award the Marquis Project Global Citizenship award to local writer, consultant and one of the founding members of The Marquis Project David McConkey.

More details on both these announcements can be found in the attached press releases, and should you have any questions, or be interested in a follow up interview or attending the event, please feel free to contact me at any time.

Have a great day,

Naomi Leadbeater

President, The Marquis Project
