Welcome!
Welcome to the first issue of WEAVE News! It’s been awhile since you heard from us, but WEAVE has been very busy with some exciting and new developments: the creation of our own e-newsletter and the new design of our website. More importantly, we celebrated our 18th birthday this year and WEAVE only continues to grow our services. Even as the scale of our work expands, however, the impact of WEAVE programs remains very personal: it is the daily struggles and hard-won successes of individual women and children that fuel our determination to empower displaced individuals and communities. In WEAVE News, we will update the progress of our programs but also feature these stories of individual impact with the hope that you, too, will share our passion for creating a more just and equitable world.
In Solidarity,
WEAVE
