We send all members an email newsletter about the upcoming events. You can also like us on Facebook(Click Here to Like our Page) or check the events calendar (Here).
Our regular monthly activities include:
AWA coffee mornings are held on the 1st Tuesday of every month from 10:00 – 12:00 – usually in the home of one of our members. These are advertised in our weekly e-mail which is distributed to all members, as well as on our website.
This is a great way to interact with and get to know other members in an informal setting; both members and their guests are welcome. Members are requested to bring along a plate of snacks to share or alternatively make a Ksh 300/- donation. There is a charge of Ksh 500/- for guests. All funds raised go towards our all-important food support programs.
AWA provides all the cups and hot water flasks – all the host is asked to do is to provide tea and coffee.
So come along to the next coffee morning, or better yet, offer to host one! Lesley Perry currently organises our coffee mornings, and can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org
AWA General Meetings are held at the Tribe Hotel, Village Market on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. Coffee starts at 9:30 and the speaker starts at 10:00. It lasts until 12.00. There is a fee for members of 300/- and 500/- for guests.
The General Meetings take place from September to May. We take a break in June, July and August as so many people travel at this time.
We usually also hold a book sale at the General Meetings. There is a wide selection for only 50/- a book! All proceeds go to our feeding support programs. Please donate your old novels as well.
We hope to see you at one of our meetings soon!
Out and About
The AWA Out and About is on the 4th Tuesday of every month. We organise a group outing to all kinds of places. Sometimes it is a visit to one of our Community Services projects, or a new shop in town. We will often organise a car pool and have lunch afterwards. Timings depend on the activity. Members are free and guests are 500/-, unless the activity has an entrance fee.
Watch your emails for details.
If you have any ideas of where we should go, please let us know.
We also have a number of other fundraising events throughout the year. These include our evening WING Night events, games nights, Zumba challenge, and a number of other events.
