AAG CEO, Reza Jahangiri, had the chance to visit the Kwagala Project’s Total Impact House while traveling in Africa with Kevin Chern, a partner at Total Attorneys. Chern and Total Attorneys had already been supporting the campaign.
Jahangiri was immediately struck by the experiences of the those affected by Kwagala’s campaign. The girls Kwagala is helping are victims of the sex trade and have lived through horrifying experiences many of us cannot imagine.
Kwagala not only provides food, shelter, and love but also provides the girls with skills that are preparing them to be able to support themselves in the long run.
Upon Jahangiri’s arrival home, he decided to take action and made the Kwagala Project AAGives Back’s anchor charity. The company provides a monthly monetary commitment and has developed a micro-lending fund for the girls. AAG employees have also acted by creating company fundraisers and selling the handmade Kwagala jewelry.
Jahangiri has fostered a community of giving at American Advisors Group and has impacted those with the Kwagala Project, which has impacted all of us here at AAG.
