Courageous Women from Around the World

Barby Ulmer

11 a.m., January 20, 2019

Hear stories about the lives of incredible, courageous women from around the world, who, despite severe obstacles, found their way to Ghana for the Women’s International League for Peace & Freedom ( 103 years old) Triennial Congress in Ghana. We don’t really have a clue as to what these women face daily!

Barby Ulmer, a lifetime teacher at all levels from pre-school to university, with her late husband Vic, co-founded the now 50 years old, all volunteer non-profit Our Developing World, designed to bring realities of “developing countries” to North Americans through programs, teacher training and a lending resource library (Reality Tours), and handcraft sales to tell the stories of the artisans’lives. We believe that we’re all developing and can do better if we work together & learn from each other.
