Supporting Akilah Institute for Women has been a wonderful experience. I was introduced to this team because of my experience in events that empower women. Akilah Institute made its way to my home in NYC for their U.S. tour. I was very inspired by the story of these young Rwandan women and the work of Elizabeth Dearborn Davis. When I began participating in their NYC event, I was immediately impressed by the persistence, motivation, and organization of the Akilah team. The New York City event went great. It was inspiring meet Elizabeth Dearborn Davis and two of the Akilah Institute students, Gisele and Anita. It brought tears to the eyes to learn about Gisele and Anita's journey to becoming leaders in their community. It was a festive evening with much to celebrate and I thank Akilah Institute for being a model of empowerment for me. I love that the Akilah team has kept in touch. The newsletters on the progress of their students and highlights of the year has been an awesome reminder of things we should think of that are happening in different parts of the world, the impact of education, and the change our support can bring to the world.
