This event was a spectacular display of how Zambian Women host an event. Our Annual Hats and Tea Party Event serves to bring together communities that exist in the greater Seattle area, focusing on empowering women and encouraging our youth to focus on education. Our Theme this year was "Education at the Grassroot Level". AZISWA recognizes the importance of instilling the importance of education in our children and funds raised at the Hats and Tea Party went towards purchasing footwear for the Limulunga Community School in Western Province, Zambia.
Many thanks to the sponsors of this event: Fred Meyer, QFC, Costco and Tully's Coffee.
The Zambian Annual Independence Day Celebration and Fundraiser is held in October to celebrate Zambia's Independence. This event is packed with Zambian culture and tradition, food, fashion, arts, and dance. It is our much anticipated event every single year.
AZISWA members met with parishioners from St. Benedict's Church and Friends of Limulunga and gave a brief Zambian cultural exhibition.
