OTTAWA-The humanitarian and people’s empowerment work of SAP Pakistan and SAP Canada will be featured on Vision TV on Tuesday night at 4 PM and 10:30 PM Eastern Standard Time. Check your local television guide for your Vision TV channel.
The South Asia Partnership story is one of the first that will be told each Tuesday night on Vision TV starting October 21, 2003 and ending April 13, 2004. These stories show how ordinary Canadians gain as much as they give when they devote their lives to helping the world’s developing communities.
In the series, we meet Mohammad Tahseen, a Pakistani peace and democracy activist; Drs. Junice Melgar and Sylvia Estrada, feminist health care activists who are training women to fight for health care rights in the slum areas of the Philippines and Paul Mutangwa who returns to Rwanda in 1994 to help rebuild his country after the genocide. Haiti’s Gachette Madson, a young agronomist, mobilizes a new generation of problem-solving community leaders. We meet Martha Espinoza Osorio, a Nicaraguan woman who with a small loan starts a business and puts her four children through university. We watch Fr. Joe Maier as he battles against injustice in Bangkok’s slums, while Canadian Karen Clarke works in Northern Ghana to improve the lives of rural women and we meet Jose “Pepe” Wilfredo Sanchez Porras, who at 16 has become an advocate for Peru’s child workers.
