States and No Poverty No Disease No War Ambassadors
Hon. Ehsan Khandaker
Ambassador Of Bangladesh To The No Poverty No Disease No War
Ehsan Khandaker is from Bangladesh lived also in Pakistan, married to an Indian- Canadian. Ehsan also lived in the United States for over a decade. Basically, his time was almost equally divided among these three countries- giving him a good prospective about the people, culture, religions and customs.
That makes him a “Global Citizen” of Canada.
At an early stage of his life, Ehsan faced few challenges of the after effects of war, separation of countries and the constantly adjusting to the ever-changing world around him.
This is how he fell in love with “Multiculturalism”, one of the pillars of Canada.
Professionally he’s a former hotel executive, financial adviser, former executive director of “Health & Community” services and the first Board President of Catholic Family Services of Peel-Dufferin as a Muslim.
He learned volunteering from his mother who is a dedicated and committed volunteer even though she raised 10 of her own children! An amazing woman!
Let us all follow Mrs. Altadunnessa Khandaker’s examples and give back to family members, neighbours and society.
I’m delighted and honoured to contribute to No Poverty
No War initiatives.
A movement led an amazing individual Mr. Suresh Joachim, holder of numerous Guinness World Records.
He never quits! What a role model!
Please invite others to register on-line and make Suresh’s dream and dreams of billions of people to live in harmony, well fed and at peace.
God bless you, the families and citizens of the world! Let’s already start to prepare for the next event….by Suresh Joachim.

Long live Bangladesh and Long live Canada!

Hon. Miroslawa Werbowy-Onuch
Ambassador Of Ukraine To The No Poverty No Disease No War
Miroslawa Werbowy-Onuch Born in Warsaw, Poland in 1960 to Ukrainian parents Melania and Jaroslaw Werbowy, who in spite of the difficulties of living in post-war Communist Poland, did everything possible to raise me with a love for Ukrainian culture, language and literature as well as its history. Every Sunday we attended Mass at the Ukrainian Catholic Church and eagerly participated in all Ukrainian community events, concerts, and celebrations as viewers as well as performers.
University of Warsaw was my first Alma Mater where I obtained a Bachelor of Psychology and Education. I continued my education at the Ukrainian Free University in Munich, Germany and received a Masters' degree at the Faculty of Philosophy and Pedagogy.
In 1986 I moved to Toronto Canada together with my husband, Jerzy Onuch and my daughter Olha. In Canada I was able to continue working in my profession as a Ukrainian Teacher at the St Sofia Catholic School in Mississauga. I also coordinated the International Language Programme for the Dufferin Peele Separate School Board. During this time, I continued my professional development by attending courses in Primary Teacher In-service, Teacher's and Administrator's Orientation Programmes, as well as participating in Heritage Language Symposiums and educational conferences. As an Ukrainian teacher in the school system and in the Heritage Language Programme, I realised that there was a dire need for a children's Ukrainian bookstore since the reading and enjoyment of books at an early age are crucial in the development of language ability. Thus, the bookstore "Koota Ooma" was established and has offered a wide variety of children's books from the diaspora and Ukraine.
From as early as 1991, when Ukraine became an independent state, I conducted teacher training in contemporary teaching methods for primary grades. The first course in 1991 was “Teaching Language in Primary Grades”. In 1992 I become a member of the Institute for the Professional Development of Teachers, in Toronto, Ontario. Together with a group of Canadian educators I organized and conducted courses and professional exchange between educators from Canada and Ukraine. Throughout the following 25 years, I taught 27 courses in 12 different cities in Ukraine for Boards of Education, Teacher's Development Institutes and Universities.
For over a period of 20 years, I was invited to lecture at the Ukrainian Free University in Munich, Germany to teach the methodology of teaching languages during the summer courses for teachers attending from Europe, North America and later from Ukraine. I organized and coordinated Special Education Courses in cooperation with Prof. Theodore Helbrugge “Sonenshine” Stiftung for teachers from Ukraine, internships for students in different schools in Germany, as well as developing the curriculum for UFU's Pedagogical Institute. From 1998 to 2009 I was the Principal of the "Tsiopa Paliiv Ukrainian School" in Toronto and was responsible for staff recruitment, supervision and professional development. During my leisure time, I enjoy visiting galleries and going for walks with my husband Jerzy Onuch, who is an artist, art curator and former diplomat. We also enjoying spending time with our daughter, who is a professor of political science in Great Britain.
One of my life's motto is that we as teachers can change the world.
My dream is a world without poverty, disease and war.
It is with immense sadness that we helplessly watch how the invasion in Ukraine is continuing to destroy lives of millions of Ukrainians, as well as their cities and villages. I call upon all people of the world - LET’S STOP THIS WAR! Let's Stand With Ukraine!!!
