Dear Friends, We are proud to announce that JOCELYN HONG won the two round-trip tickets to South Africa. We’d like to thank all our contributors  See more

THE STORY:

Hi, I’m Mangaka Meso, an alumna of the South Africa-Washington International Program (SAWIP).

On 5 November 2016, I’ll be running the DC Half and Half Marathon to support SAWIP’s mission for  social justice, as well as economic opportunities for all South Africans.

Each year, a diverse team of talented, South African students are selected for SAWIPs 7-month leadership program. The students receive work placements in Washington, D.C., and are exposed to their profession on a global scale, as well as cultural immersion – gained by living with a host family in the USA for six weeks.  

Each student gains invaluable skills and experience which can then be applied back home – in South Africa. 

SAWIP alumni are already impacting disadvantaged communities with projects such as development workshops with high school students, legal aid services, peer education about fatal diseases such as HIV/Aids, and informing communities of their civil rights, as well as teaching them to advocate for themselves.

Several alumni occupy leading roles at law firms, financial institutions, and consulting firms within South Africa.

Do you have $2 or more to support this program? We’d love to afford more South Africans a chance to realise their potential on a global scale with SAWIP. For every $25 you donate, you will be entered into a draw to win 2 South African Airways round-trip tickets between the USA and South Africa!

Investing in this leadership development initiative, will be your investment to a better South Africa.

All SAWIP students hail from diverse backgrounds. Your financial support will, among other things, enable SAWIP to pay for student stipends, travel expenses, student meals, and costs associated with organizing opportunities for learning, networking, and sharing ideas.

Join this movement -help me help SAWIP -let’s go the extra mile together!

Note that donations can be made offline by sending a check made out to SAWIP to:
