Description

Do you want to help change the world?

Hear from special guests and UWA students making a difference on an international scale at Globetrotters & Changemakers, a panel event hosted by the McCusker Centre for Citizenship Student Advisory Committee.

Meet the panel: Three-time Paralympic gold medallist and current world record holder for blind marathon runners Henry Wanyoike and fellow Kenyan Francis Kamau will join Pollinate Energy Student Fellowship Program participants Meisha Bull and Natalie Fretton, who recently returned from their global internship in India.

Champion athlete Wanyoike, who lost 95% of his eyesight after suffering a stroke at age 21, established The Henry Wanyoike Foundation that promotes disability rights in Kenya through donations, scholarships and advocacy. This marks the first time he has visited Australia since winning his first gold medal at the Sydney Paralympic Games in 2000.

Globetrotters & Changemakers will be held on August 20 at Hemsley Learning Suite, Reid Library at The University of Western Australia from 1-2pm.
