THE EASTER OUTREACH event was specifically for families in the community of Azusa with an emphasis on fun activities for the kids. Everything from face painting, to having a bounce-house, an Egg hunt, and even limbo! The kids had a blast.
In the community of Azusa there is a great deal of families, especially those being raised by single moms, who are dealing with financial challenges and are unable to spend a lot on providing an Easter celebration for their kids. So this was a really great way Azusa First Church was able to give back and make that possible for them.
Wando International’s participation at the event was to reach out to these families in need.
By having our own booth, which was decorated with beautifully handcrafted jewelry made by our Women Bead Partners in Uganda, we were able to share with people how exactly we EMPOWER people experiencing poverty around the world through programs such as Skills and Business-Development.
The major takeaway we wanted to leave people with was to inform them that our nonprofit organization is a resource for them in their local neighborhood.
Just one block up and around the corner from Azusa First Church located on Azusa Ave. and Foothill Blvd., Wando International offers FREE workshops and career advisory services to help them with their career development should they be in need of assistance.
