    Awards Ceremony

    15 December 2015

    Another heart-warming awards ceremony at Anawim today. It was all about highlighting the achievements of a group of women, majority of which had never had an opportunity like this before. Each woman has her own story and progressive journey that they are taking with the support of Anawim. There were tears and laughter, but moreover, there was inspiration for every person in the hall, not just for clients, but for Anawim staff, volunteers, funders and supporters.  To read more please click on the link:
