Don’t Miss: African Community Education Program Fundraising Dinner

Thursday, October 24, 2013

 

The African Community Education program's annual fundraising dinner will be a night of food, dance, and unforgettable stories.

The African Community Education program (ACE), a nonprofit serving over 100 African refugee and immigrant students within the Worcester Public School system, will hold its annual fundraising dinner on October 24th from 6pm to 8pm at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Lazzare Research Building.

Students served by ACE come from war-torn countries in Africa such as Liberia, Somalia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and as a result, lacked a proper education prior to coming to the United States. Many students are English language learners and have missed years of schooling, putting them years behind their peers academically. These challenges, in addition to the culture shock they face, make school very difficult once here in the US. ACE's mission is to ease this transition and help these students catch up academically, graduate high school, and attend college. During the Fall Fundraiser, students have an opportunity to share their stories, talents and cultures with members of the Worcester community.

In addition to hearing the kids' inpirational stories, at the fundraiser you can look forward to a fun evening of African food, dancing, dumming, and a great auction. All members of the Worcester community are invited to join ACE co-founders Kaska Yawo and Olga Valdman, Worcester Mayor Petty, candidates for local and state office, and the ACE students for this special night.

The ACE Annual Fundraising Dinner will take place at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, 55 Lake Ave North, Worcester MA Lazzarre Research Building, Blais Pavilion, First Floor.
