Ruth Hershler co-founder/Executive Director of Education Without Borders Canada, at the 2017 Toronto South African Film Festival, chatting with the Reginald Show.
Ruth and her husband Cecil prior to emigrating to Canada from South Africa in 74, worked with other Grad Students within the Townships to provide tutoring and mentorship to some of the youth, where they witnessed firsthand the hopeless overcrowding of classrooms, the impoverished living conditions, along with an extremely high school drop out rate, plus much more.
Since immigrating to Canada in 74, and throughout the years, Ruth & Cecil never forgot their time providing tutoring and mentorship in a Township in South Africa. From this, Ruth and Cecil were inspired to founded Education Without Borders Canada, which helps provide tutoring and mentorship to youth in the Townships in South Africa, along with Indigenous children and their communities in British Columbia.
-Toronto & Vancouver South African Film Festivals are charities that help solely to raise funds for Education Without Borders Canada.
-Plus, so much more.
