In 2011, American Advisors Group became inspired by an organization in Uganda dedicated to rescuing, restoring, and empowering women who have been victimized by trafficking, violence, and poverty. This organization is called the Kwagala Project. Since then, American Advisors Group has made the Kwagala Project the anchor program for our AAGives Back campaign. Every month, American Advisors Group raises money through different fundraisers to help support the house in Gulu where the girls live and to give the girls an opportunity to invest in their future. In addition, American Advisors Group works closely with the Second Harvest Food Bank collecting goods for Food Drives.
This month in charity, American Advisors Group congratulates one of our Kwagala girls Sharon, who has passed the government-mandated exam that advances her past elementary school to the secondary level. The 16-year old is excited about physics and chemistry as she considers a potential future in the sciences. American Advisors Group also welcomes our newest girl Nancy to the Total Impact House. We cannot wait to see her benefit from the new support she’ll be receiving.
AAGives Back also presented the 3rd Annual Food Drive in collaboration with Second Harvest Food bank. For a whole month, American Advisors Group employees brought in canned and plastic-packaged foods to fill barrels and bins located on every floor of the office.
For extra motivation, for every 5 items employees brought in, they received a raffle ticket for a drawing of an iPad Mini. After a month of collecting donations, AAGives back is proud to count a total donation of 6 full barrels of canned and boxed foods to send to Second Harvest Food Bank. Congratulations as well to Tania R. for winning the raffle for the iPad Mini.
