Dear Ageners and supporters,
I would like to take this opportunity to deeply thank Dr. Shannon Risk for firstly making the presentation at Buffalo a great success in terms of quality in that the majority of Fulbrighters from the region were represented. Among other things, we had the President of the Fulbright Chapter for Western New York and Pennsylvania among the participants. We also had representatives from University of Fredonia, Niagara University, Daemen College and the University at BUffalo. Dr.Shannon also funded refreshments for all participants of the event.
Secondly, Dr. Shannon has donated $200 to AGEN. This fund will be given, as a special fund, to some women entrepreneurs. Priority will be given to women in Morogoro who had no opportunity to receive funds from the Department of the state (their network was established in 2015). Those who are going to receive the fund will write a letter to Dr. Shannon to explain how the fund has helped them to transform their lives.
The check has been sent to Divine Muragijimana in New York who will then make arrangement to transfer the fund to the women in Morogoro. Thank you very much Dr. Shannon.
Due to the outstanding response we’ve gotten to Rasel Madaha’s presentation on his work with the non-profit AGEN in Tanzania, helping rural women access micro loans for business and farming, we’ve moved the meeting space. The day and time (6/25 from 4-5 p.m.) remains the same:
St. Joseph University Parish at 3269 Main St, Buffalo, NY 14214
Please get the word out to your networks, and thanks!
