UMW Spring Mission Event

The St. Andrew’s UMW cordially invites you to our SPRING MISSION EVENT
Monday, May 20th in Wesley Hall

6:00 p.m. – Salad Supper
7:00 p.m. – Guest Speaker- Ms. Vanessa Mwangala

Ms. Mwangala is the Founder and Executive Director of Voices Awake. This program is part of Urban Promise International in Salima, Malawi. Its mission is to awaken the potential in girls by equipping them to fight against harmful traditions so that they positively transform their lives. This is being done through promoting positive values, raising awareness on abuse, educating girls and leadership development. Through this program, girls gain access to female role models, education opportunities and they are encouraged to pursue their dreams as people created for a purpose.

Voices Awake was launched in August 2018 by Urban Promise International with Ms. Mwangala, who has earned a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership, as their first female Executive Director! This event is hosted by the Elizabeth and Martha Circles and is open to the congregation. Babysitting is available with advanced notice.
