From our Board of Directors
After fourteen years of dedicated and fruitful service as the Executive Director of DFN Canada, Sherry Bailey has announced that the time has come for her to step down. The Board of Directors wishes to sincerely thank Sherry for her incredible contribution over the years.
Her passion for the women and children of India has increased the Canadian public’s awareness of the power of providing quality education to India’s marginalized children, and her strong leadership has created a stable DFN donor base. While Sherry will be passing on the baton by May 2020, she has created a talented team who will continue her work.
During Sherry’s time with DFN, 20 schools have been built; thousands of women and children empowered with education and vocational training; and Jesus’ love demonstrated to countless low-caste families.
“Sherry was indeed God’s person to help launch and build DFN in Canada. We are grateful for the great job she has done all these years. Her burden for the children and their education is evident to everyone. We pray for God’s richest blessings in the next season of her life”—Joseph D’Souza, International President, DFN.
With Sherry transitioning out of her role by May 2020, the Board has established a committee to lead the search for the next person to lead DFN Canada into this new season. As we enter this time of transition, your continued support and prayer are greatly appreciated.
Please join us in thanking Sherry for her amazing dedication and tireless work to build DFN Canada. We wish her well in her next endeavours, as she is guided by God’s love for her.
Chair, Board of Directors, Dalit Freedom Network Canada
