What a way to celebrate 40 years of relentless work to empower the poorest of the poor in India. Angel and André Gingras were nominated Personnalités de l’année Le Droit/Radio-Canada in the category Community Engagement and Volunteering. The Ceremony was held in Gatineau, Quebec. They were chosen among several other candidates who were nominated Personnalités de la semaine throughout 2016. Other candidates were also selected in different categories for their accomplishments in areas like sports, science and technology, business, culture, education and so on.
The Board of Directors of our organizations, the employees, volunteers and the millions of people who have benefitted from Angel’s and André’s lifetime dedication, all send their love and appreciation. Your achievements make us proud and we wish you well for years to come.
