Help Cara Galka Become a GHG Accounting Expert

My name is Cara Galka. I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I am an off-reserve member of the Berens River First Nation, a Saulteaux tribe. I am 39 years old, married with two  children (12 & 10). I have a diploma in Foundation Accounting Studies from the Certified General Accountants of Manitoba (now merged into the Chartered Professional Accountants of Manitoba).

I want to become a provider of GHG Accounting services to people and organizations, specifically with a specialization in First Nations and their related NGO's. 

I want to earn a Diploma in GHG Measurement, Reporting & Verification. 
Here is a link to the program:

The program is run by the GHG Management Institute.  

The Greenhouse Gas Management Institute is USA-based a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, also with a registered non-profit organization based in Italy.

The Greenhouse Gas Management Institute’s programs are globally recognized and used by the United Nations and other leading organizations to train their staff.

Tuition costs $2,950 USD. I'm unable to run the fundraiser using USD since I'm not an American citizen with an American bank account. I converted $2950 to CAD using today and the current CAD equivalent is $3948.42. I've rounded it to $3950 for the fundraiser. 


Courses are self-paced and offered online. Once tuition is paid you have access to course materials within 2-3 business days. 

I currently run my own bookkeeping business, Bluebird First Bookkeeping, and do not have the additional financial resources to fund this education.  GHG accounting would become an additional service I provide to clients. It would align with my vision to help mitigate climate change. 

I so appreciate any help I receive, and will do my best to pay it forward to others in the future.
