Through AJWS, I participated in an Alternative Spring Break in Nicaragua and a Volunteer Summer program in Ghana, and then received support to launch a women's leadership initiative in Mwange Refugee Camp, Zambia, and conduct research on refugees' access to justice in Meheba Refugee Settlement in Zambia. AJWS is an incredible organization deeply dedicated to cultivating social justice leaders. The support I received as a volunteer while in the field was outstanding, but I have been truly impressed at how hard AJWS has worked to make me feel a part of a community and to support me long after I returned from the programs. My experiences with AJWS in Ghana launched me on a professional and academic track of work related to Sub-Saharan Africa, and also strengthened my Jewish identity and commitment to Jewish pluralism.
