26th Annual Benefit Luncheon
Tuesday, May 22, 2018
Spokane Convention Center
Dr. Tererai Trent is a symbol of hope for children around the world. Her new book, The Awakened Woman, is based on her story of perseverance. Dr. Trent grew up in a cattle-herding family in rural Zimbabwe and always dreamed of getting an education, but limited by traditional Zimbabwean culture, she was married with three children by the time she was eighteen. Undeterred by traditional roles and cultural norms, Tererai determinedly taught herself to read and write from her brother’s schoolbooks. From those humble beginnings, Tererai has become a world-renowned scholar, humanitarian, motivational speaker, educator, mentor, and inspiration, leading the global charge in the fight for quality education for all children.
