Today I would like to address girls’ education in South Asia in the post-tsunami environment. The first weeks of this new year have shown us both the destructive power of nature and the transformational power of collective human action. In a rare moment of international common cause, we have seen the very best of humanity in a global experience few of us will ever forget.
September 2003-September 2004
The Chicago chapter has 30 members. Teresa Hintzke and Ada Kolmodin ably represented Chicago at the 22nd International Conference in Singapore. Teresa spearheaded the PPSEAWA-USA Education Fund. Chicago members Rebecca Massey, Suki Ochoa, and Gloria Massey hosted a fundraiser luncheon in April which raised nearly $500 for the Education Fund.
It has been an honor and a great pleasure to serve a president of the NY Chapter for 2003-2004. We were blessed with a dedicated Board in pursuit of PPSEAWA’s goals.
At our first meeting of the year David Harnish and Maxine Barry gave a presentation called “The Charm of Bali and Its People.” The presenters have traveled many times to Bali, worked with the people there and charmed our group with stories of their experiences, complete with wonderful slides.
The San Francisco-Bay Area Chapter has set the following goals for the current year
Recently we were saddened by the news from Toledo chapter of the deaths of two wonderful members, Marjorie Wilson and Berniece Husted, who spent many years promoting the causes of PPSEAWA in their younger days and continued until the time they left us. The President of the Toledo chapter, Norma Wells, sent a check of $354, on behalf of the chapter, to PPSEAWA-USA Education/Scholarship Fund.
The “Millennium Development Goals: Civil Society Takes Action Conference” was attended by many of our members while here for our PPSEAWA-USA Annual Meeting. The discussion focused on how civil society can become more active.
Greetings! Warm wishes for a happy new year and especially a healthy 2005.
