We would like to cordially invite you to attend AkiDwA’s 10th Anniversary Fundraising and Recognition Dinner on the 23rd of September 2011, to be held at the Gresham Hotel, O’Connell Street, Dublin 1. 

Akina Dada wa Africa (AkiDwA- Swahili for sisterhood), was established in August 2001 by a group of African women to address the needs of an expanding population of African and migrant women residing in Ireland. To mark our organisation’s achievements and the strength of the migrant women we have worked with over the years, and to recognise the crucial work that individuals and organisations have played in our success, we have planned a programme of activities, from the 12th of September to the 23rdSeptember 2011, across the country (full programme of activities attached). 

Our final event will be a fundraising and recognition dinner, on the 23rd of September, at which those who have supported AkiDwA’s mission of promoting equality and justice for migrant women, will be acknowledged and awarded a certificate of recognition. 

Tickets for this evening event are €70 per person and €650 per table of ten. Each ticket enters the individual into a draw with prizes including a return flight for two to Mombasa, Kenya, a two-night B&B stay for two at the Gresham Hotel in Dublin or the Gresham Metropole in Cork and free Swahili lessons for beginners at the Dublin Swahili Institute. 

Please contact our Development and Event Officer Amaka Okonkwo at amaka@akidwa.ie or at 01 834 9851 by 1st September 2011 with your interest or to book tickets, which must be purchased before or on this date.
