December 4th, 2016  -  Sombrilla Annual Chocolatada 
We have been fortunate over the years to have the opportunity to be connected with a rural Andean community in Peru.   Our involvement with the community has enriched our lives in many ways, and one of the fun celebrations we have taken away from there is the Chocolatada.  This Peruvian holiday tradition sees people gather, drink hot chocolate and celebrate.  We hope you will join us for an afternoon of hot chocolate and friendship.  Come for 15 minutes or several hours! Sombrilla crafts will be on display, we’ll have fair trade chocolate for sale, and donations to Sombrilla projects will be gratefully accepted!

When: Sunday, December 4th  -  1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Where:  11424-77 avenue, Edmonton, Alberta



Our mandate is to walk in solidarity with our partners in the global south towards effective social change for all of society.
