THE INSIDE SCOOP: ROHINGYA CRISIS
The Inside Scoop: Rohingya Crisis will feature sundae making that incorporates advocacy about the crisis through an interactive timeline, dialogue, trivia, and educational ice cream. The purpose of this event is to spread awareness and engage students in an event that is not properly covered on by the media. We hope to stimulate dialogue about the crisis and to ensure that people are not misinformed about global events. The highlight of this event is sundae making, where attendees will be able to create their own sundae with educational ice cream at a $2 minimum donation. Proceeds will go directly to the UNICEF Rohingya Crisis Relief Fund. Donations straight to UNICEF are also gladly accepted!

The team at UNICEF SFU is thrilled to announce that after holding two remarkable sold out galas, the tradition will continue into 2019! The Beyond Equality Gala 2019 will be our third annual gala with social and educational features integrated into one classy evening while we also celebrate our 10th year anniversary as a SFU club!
Our focus this year will be on Child Equality. Child Equality encompasses many aspects of their livelihood such as: Disabilities, LGBTQ+ Identity, Culture, Immigration, and Education. We are excited to create a chance for our community to gather in support of child equality on a local and global scale. This night will feature keynote speakers who will share their expertise and knowledge on issues the youth face in poverty, government care, and foster care systems.

We're excited to be bringing you our biggest event of Fall 2018, Rebuilding Lives! This interactive Cinema Night will focus on raising awareness of the refugee crisis that is on-going.
The touching documentary ‘After Spring’ will be showcased, giving you a glimpse into the lives of two Syrian refugee families in transition and aid workers running the largest Syrian refugee camp. Roughly 34,000 people leave their homes every day in order to flee from persecution or war, leaving their home country only accounts for part of the journey - the other part comes from resettling and rebuilding lives in their new country.
This night will also feature our notable guest speaker, Mohammed Alsaleh. Mohammed is a former Syrian refugee that has used his personal story to not only raise awareness but also inspire and help others settle in their new home. As an advocate, speaker, and trainer, he has shared his story through TEDx talks as well as being recognized by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Hollywood actor and activist George Takei.
Delectable Syrian appetizers will be catered through the night by Vancouver-founded company Tayybeh, a restaurant run by newly migrated Syrian women chefs to help further connect refugees in the community through preparing culinary dishes. Tayybeh has been a sensation across local and national media through their success in catering multiple events across Metro Vancouver
