“FIRST FRUITS FESTIVAL” IN QUEEN’S PARK DEEMED A SUCCESS

The Annu Institute sees community development as a process where community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems. With this thought in mind, the Annu institute for human development is hosted two community development events over the Easter weekend in Queen’s park.

The Annu Institute invited the public to a community development forum on Easter Sunday April 5th from 5PM to 9PM at the steel shed in Queen's Park. The consultation seeks to unite community organizers who also dream of creating a better community. The Institute seeks to empower individuals and groups of people by providing them with the skills they need to effect change within their communities.
