Impact Through Speaking Engagements

Impact Through Speaking Engagements

ImpactAVillage offers speaking engagements at schools, corporations, clubs, and places of worship. Our inspirational speaker Deng Jongkuch shares his harrowing story of survival as one of the Lost Boys of Sudan and his experience as a refugee in the U.S. His story offers hope, creates awareness about different cultures, and inspires activism, volunteerism and giving back to those in need. Additionally, Eda Zavala – an anthropologist, activist and healer from the Peruvian Amazon is also available for speaking engagements upon request.

Please consult Lisa Wade, President of ImpactAVillage at Lisafwade@gmail.com or 916-214-0579 if you would like more information.

November, 2018: ImpactAVillage continues to support our local “village” of Northern California devastated by fires with our recent donation to the North Valley Community Foundation for relief of victims and workers of the Camp Fire. This is the way to impact a village!

October, 2017: The board members of ImpactAVillage voted to help our local “village” of Northern California devastated by the fires. We donated relief funds to the Redwood Empire Food Bank who is providing critical food to shelters for our neighbors displaced by fires. This is the way to impact a village!
