SNHU Presents: 'Self-Sustainability versus Endless Charity: Breaking the Cycle'
Promoting the health and well-being of people in Rwanda

Manchester, N.H. (Oct. 21, 2010) – Southern New Hampshire University's Christos and Mary Papoutsy Chair in Ethics and Social Responsibility will sponsor Rosalie Wyman and her lecture "Self-Sustainability versus Endless Charity: Breaking the Cycle," on Oct. 27, at 6:30 p.m. in Walker Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.

The Wyman Worldwide Health Partners was established in 2006 by Ro and Bill Wyman to promote the health and well-being of people in Rwanda. The impetus for the foundation was a result of Ro's first trip to visit endangered mountain gorillas in 1988. Early on she realized that when people are struggling just to survive, it is hard to convince them to protect their environment. The survival of Rwanda’s mountain gorilla population depends upon the health, education and economic success of the people in the communities surrounding the gorillas’ natural habitat. Ro was inspired to try to find a way to make a difference.

The Papoutsy Lecture Series in Environmental Ethics and Social Responsibility was created to fulfill a goal of the present Chair to promote an environmental ethic on SNHU's campus and across the community to help move us towards a sustainable future.  Over the next two years, the Series will host speakers whose lives and work extend the traditional boundaries of ethics by examining the role of humans in the environment with the hope of finding socially responsible ways to improve this relationship.

Please contact Prof. Michele Goldsmith at 668.2211 and for additional information.
