-Yuwa Holiday Event 2011

Thank-you for all who attended this year's Yuwa holiday event on December 22nd. The event was a success, as we saw record attendance and had over 30 businesses involved in supporting the cause through the event! It was a great night of casino gaming, silent auction bidding and conversation among attendees.

-Professional Women Soccer Players Visit Yuwa Villages

Joanna Lohman and Lianne Sanderson from Joli Academy traveled to Jharkhand to visit Yuwa in month of January. Lohman and Sanderson founded the JoLi Academy, a for-profit business that has a philanthropic bent. They are interested in spreading their talents and learning from Yuwa's success.
