CDF Canada Recognized with Service Award
We’re excited to announce that on October 27, CDF Canada was presented with an Honorary Distinguished Service Award by our partner, the African Confederation of Cooperative Savings and Credit Associations (ACCOSCA)!
The award recognizes our 70-year history of helping communities around the world forge their own pathways to sustainable livelihoods through co-operative development, and in particular our dedication to mentoring women.
Chair Michele Aasgard traveled to Lilongwe, Malawi to accept the award from ACCOSCA Chairperson Josephine Nabuyungo. “Our engagement with ACCOSCA reflects CDF Canada’s philosophy of successful partnerships based on a shared vision, respectfully frank communications, mutual learning and being responsive to local needs,” Ms. Aasgard said in her acceptance speech. “We are humbled to accept this recognition.”
Our partnership with ACCOSCA began in 1985. We look forward to many more years of breaking new ground together!
