Hello Friends! Thank you for making a difference in a person's life and supporting my cause to rebuild the souls of the women of Rwanda!
I would like to officially invite you to Friends for a Benefit to raise money for a non-profit organization that I will be volunteering with in Rwanda. For those of you are who are unfamiliar, the Rwandan Genocide of 1994 killed over 800,000 people and has left a population majority of orphan women who have been severely mentally and physically abused. Akilah Institute for Women was founded by an inspiring 26 year old to fill a need for affordable education of the orphan women of Rwanda. I will be going in October to Intern for 3 months and I wanted to give everyone a chance to be a part of this organization to make a difference in Rwanda to prepare a woman for the workforce and the current expanding economy.
The goal is to raise $3,000 which will provide one student the opportunity to study, live, and eat at Akilah for the 2 year duration of their diploma program in Business Entrepreneurship or Hotel Tourism Management.
Mimosas and small h´orderves
will be provided and entertainment will be provided by ______________ .
There will be a drawing for prizes. Each attendee can donate a minimum of $20 which will include one ticket for the drawing. Each additional ticket is $5. You can donate on the Akilah Institute for Women website directly at http://www.akilahinstitute.org/donate/ and print out a copy of the receipt or you can bring cash with you in a sealed envelope.
Please RSVP by April 1st.
I look forward to changing the life of one person with you!
