Arts to End Genocide held their annual fund-raising event on August 20, 2022. At this event we had a West African Dance Performance and Workshop put on by Wesley Williams and the SUAH African Dance Theater. Around 160 people attended with at least half of them children. Everyone there was engaged and truly had a lot of fun. All money raised from the fundraiser will be spent to support our programs. This will certainly help with the needs of our brothers and sisters in the Faladje IDP Camp. This event was related to a program that we will be running for the children at the camp to connect them to their cultural heritage by teaching them traditional Malian dances. The sewing skills project which was completed recently was a great success. The women produced beautiful products such as purses, bags, backpacks and wallets and tablecloths, which were sold at our event. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of merchandise will be deposited into the Women’s Cooperative’s account. ATEG is installing a facility to store the sewing machines, materials and inventory. This will also serve as a workplace and an area where the ladies that have learned their sewing skills will now be able to teach others how to sew and generate money for their families. ATEG continues to provide rice for the families we are working with and to pay for physicians and nurses at the clinic as well as help with medicines that they need. In the next few weeks ATEG will be expanding our “Sponsor an IDP Child in Mali” program and adding 9 additional children. We’d like to ask our sponsors to tell their friends about this program. Please check our website shortly to see the additional children that would love to be sponsored. Thank you.
