AWOGA NY/NJ was the first alumni association of the AWMS to be formed outside of Sierra Leone. Established in New Jersey in 1985, the first Thanksgiving Service was held at Grace Lutheran Church in Teaneck, NJ, in January 1986. In later years it was moved to March of each year to coincide with the timing of the AWMS Annual Thanksgiving Celebrations in Freetown. Services currently alternate annually between New York and New Jersey.
We need not ask ourselves "If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me? but rather "If I do not help this man, what will happen to him" (Martin Luther King, Jr.)
Through the years, AWOGA NY/NJ has never strayed from its purpose to engage alumnae and others who believe in the importance of providing a sound education for the academic success of our young girls. Working wth the school and principals and together with other AWOGA chapters, we have been able to identify those areas of need where we can make a difference.
Priorities for 2018 include:
