Our FFW 23rd Birthday Celebration was BEYOND FABULOUS as we say in Liberia! Such a joy to celebrate 23 years of service to humanity all over the globe. Together we have positively impacted the lives of more than 23 million people from India, to San Diego, to Zambia and South Africa and Niger, and since 2007 we have been operating a microfinance program in Liberia. Amazing!
On April 23, 1998 our founding board members hosted our first gathering at the La Jolla Woman’s Club. We were amazed when more than 200 women showed up to learn about our new organization and our commitment to “connection and service.” And since that first program, we have gathered in community all over the globe – lots of us doing a little together vs a few doing a lot has resulted in dramatic social change for so many of our one human family.
Our celebration on April 23rd was emceed by Moses Juah, Deborah’s "son" since they first met in Liberia on Christmas Day 2006. Deborah had just landed in the country and attended a Christmas Party for children who had nothing to do that day. Moses was one of the 250 children in attendance – she and Moses have been connected ever since. "A God-thing" as Moses says. Moses was 9 years old at the time, had never been to school, was selling water in plastic bags on the street to support his illiterate family. He has just now completed his second year of college at Gannon University in Erie, PA and is a star student – one of the millions of lives that have changed due to the Foundation for Women.
The 23th Birthday Celebration was attended by so many from across the US, Canada, and Africa – truly a one global human family affair! Many of our partners in our collective impact commitment were in attendance and spoke of the impact of our work. Please click the link here to view the joy!
Our long-time friend and supporter Ann Lovell put an amazing gift on the table - $50,000 to establish an endowment to ensure the sustainability of the Foundation for Women long into the future and far beyond those of us who founded this work. Our goal is to raise at minimum $500,000. With all of us doing a little vs a few doing a lot, we are committed to reaching our goal in the next few months! We would love to have you join this effort! Deborah and Ann are happy to speak with you about several ways to contribute – a cash donation, a monthly commitment, appreciated stock assets or however else might work for you. Please call Cory at 858.483.0400 and let her know how best we can connect with you. Or you can make a donation right now.
Thank you for believing in this work, for holding hands with all of us for such a long time. Together we truly are changing the world for women and families. Together may we impact 23+ million more together in the years to come!
With much gratitude and love from Deborah and the entire Foundation for Women Family.
