Enjoy a casual outdoor evening with great food, African drumming, silent auction, shopping, and interactive learning stations about our organization and our mission. You will have the opportunity to bid on amazing items including a week-long stay at a Caribbean Treehouse resort, original artwork, gourmet private dinners, beach house stays, and much more!
We have a BIG goal of $75,000, and with your participation, we will surely reach it!
Funds raised during this event will support our goal to purchase several acres of land in a village outside the capital of Burundi, Bujumbura. This land will eventually become the home of a permanent facility for the sewing group, Amahoro, a garden to feed the artisans, a community center and a fully functional medical clinic, sponsored by CURA for the World.*
The Empower for Hope mission is to combat poverty by empowering and providing vulnerable women with opportunities to improve their economic and educational future by giving them the tools to become financially self-sufficient.
To further advance this mission, we have partnered with CURA for the World to strengthen the foundation for the communities we serve. Founder, Dr. Jawad Trad has pledged $15,000 to build and support the medical clinic in Burundi.
CURA for the World was founded on a vision to heal and nourish the neglected, to break the chains of the illiterate, to reach the unreachable and to have limitless love in a world where love is often forgotten.
