This past year IAWA had the opportunity to partner with some amazing organizations! During the month of July IAWA Ambassadors met with Global Kids youth from Washington, DC at Constitution Hill in South Africa. Our Ambassadors learned about the history of Apartheid and the lasting effects South Africans are still fighting to end. They also had a chance to interact with American youth, gaining a new perspective of the global community.
The Victoria House Foundation (VHF) kindly donated 5 tablets to our Ambassadors. Their donation has helped to expand the perspectives of our Ambassadors by allowing them to partake in virtual mentoring sessions. IAWA looks forward to working with VHF again in the future as we work to procure computers for our Ambassadors. IAWA thanked VHF and celebrated their contributions at their annual Connect to Empower Gala on September 12th in Annapolis, Maryland.
The Ascendance Fashion Show on September 15th in New York, New York was a beautiful mix of fashion, culture, and advocacy. The fashion show was used as a platform to help drive awareness for IAWA. The designers that hosted The Ascendance Fashion Show are committed to helping IAWA raise $5,000 by the end of October.
We would like to take this time to thank our travel partners and we look forward to continuing the work we have started with them. If you would like to partner with IAWA or know of someone who would please contact us.
