INTERNATIONAL AWARENESS AND INVOLVEMENT:

As a part of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated’s Five-Point Programmatic Thrust, the International Awareness and Involvement Committee remains committed to addressing contemporary challenges and the needs of vulnerable communities globally.  Through the lens of the seven nationally approved Sustainability Plans, Nassau Alumnae Chapter increases awareness by highlighting communal strengths, addresses needs, and encourages engagement in international initiatives through the following goals for the 2021-2022 chapter year:

  • Increase knowledge of the seven sustainability plans identified by Grand Chapter.

  • To generally gain more awareness of the experiences faced by our communities worldwide

  • To motivate us to actively participate in global initiatives

These goals will be accomplished by two main programs:

  • Adopt-a-Sustainability Program: Each year, the committee will identify one of the seven sustainability plans as our main area of focus. Though educational activities, fundraisers, and collaborative service events we will become more actively engaged with the plan’s efforts. The identified plan for 2021-2022 is I Can Fly International located in Machakos, Kenya.

  • Beyond Sustainability: Through a series of forums, Our Beyond Sustainability programs will address current events, challenges, and social action efforts around the globe.
