Lilly Oyare's Visit to the U.S.

Little Rock Inclusive Early Childhood Development Centre founder Lilly Oyare will be arriving in the States on March 27th! Little Rock ECD serves the students of Kibera, one of the largest slums in Africa. You may remember that Lilly has built a beautiful new school capable of supporting triple the number of students versus the old site. The school caters to the needs of hundreds of local children with pre-school, tutoring, special education, and daycare programs. All of this, of course, requires funds for more staff, furniture, equipment, school supplies, meals, etc. Lilly will be building awareness and support for the new school, and the various Little Rock programs. She is truly a testament to how one person's passion and dedication can help change the world around them. We are so pleased and excited to have her with us!

Here is a schedule of her speaking events in New Jersey:

Friday, March 28, 2:30 pm: Millburn Middle School Library
Saturday, March 29, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm: Caldwell Synagogue
Sunday, March 30, 11:00 am: Speak at Brunch Meeting at the New York home of Dorit Rabbani
Monday, March 30, 6:00 pm: Speak at a gathering of interested parties at PhilosophyIB offices
Tuesday, March 31, 11:30 am: Speak at EuroMoney New York Office during lunchtime for invited employees.

The only event open to the general public is at Agudath Israel on Saturday, March 29th. However, if you'd like to hear her and can't make it, you can contact John and Judy, and they will see if there's a hosted event that you might be able to attend.

Lilly will also attend meetings and dinners, in addition to her speaking engagements. All in all, it promises to be a busy, but hopefully fruitful, visit for our dear friend and partner. We hope you'll help welcome her here on the blog!
