Global Team for Local Initiatives & Lori Pappas

Come join Lori Pappas, founder of BI-based Global Team for Local Initiatives (GTLI) on Friday, December 10th, from 5 – 6:30PM at The Bainbridge Commons on Bainbridge Island.  As founder of the non-profit, Lori spends over six months in Africa working with the Hamar Tribe of southwest Ethiopia and has returned to WA to share her stories of building a school to educate the Hamar women, as well as the trials of teaching the people basic hygiene and sanitation as preventative illness practices.  Earlier this year, Lily Brewis and I spent 10 days with Lori and the Hamar, documenting GTLI’s work with pictures and film.  I’m pleased to announce the debuting of the first short film I’ve helped put together about their work among the Hamar.  There will also be a slideshow, drinks and snacks to consume, as well as authentic Hamar jewelry and two fine art prints by Cameron Karsten Photography (matted and framed) depicting the Hamar people available for purchase.  Proceeds will go towards Global Team for Local Initiatives.  I hope to see you there!
