Dear UWAS members,
Thank you for placing your faith and trust in me to be your tenth President. I would like to thank you for your support in maintaining your membership with UWAS all these years. I am also appealing to you to show your support through funding as well as volunteering in our many diverse projects.
Members like yourself joined UWAS because your interests are closely aligned to UWAS's main mission to utilise the expertise of its graduate women members to improve the lives of women and girls in the region through education and training. Many of you have already reached the stage in life that Maslow referred to as self-actualisation. You desire to take part in meaningful
projects rather than social events.
As we approach UWAS' 20 anniversary, I would like to reach out to all our UWAS members to appeal for your help as volunteers in our many community programmes. Your commitment, however small or large and in whatever capacity, can help UWAS to carry out its mission of training females (and also males).
Currently UWAS is heavily involved in eight medium to long term projects ranging from courses taught at both the male and female prisons, basic IT literacy courses for seniors and housewives, as well as courses for children and teenagers. We desperately need your help and expertise in teaching, writing and assisting, to enable these courses to continue to be effective or by helping to
raise funds and sponsorship to ensure sustainability of projects.
I have provided a brief description of our projects on the next page. Please read what UWAS is working on and consider how best you can be involved - we truly need your support to continue to effectively fulfill our mission.
Please let me know should you need clarification. If you have any suggestions, comments or new ideas, please let me know. I can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to fulfill our mission.
President, UWAS 2014-2016
