CSTD into Africa

Inspired by Stephen Lewis, the United Nations envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa and last year’s recipient of the Canadian Society for Training and Development (CSTD) president’s award for outstanding lifetime achievement in the field of learning, CSTD intends to send a team of trainers to Africa to help rebuild the human infrastructure which has been ravaged by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Lewis challenged CSTD to do something about the plight of those in Africa suffering in the wake of the pandemic. To send a team of trainers to Africa, the CSTD needs to raise $40,000.
