“Educating young children is extremely important in order to help Africa grow”, stated Adiat Disu, Founder and Producer of AFWNY.  “It is wonderful that fashion will help students have an opportunity to learn and grow in the USA and bring back their knowledge to Africa.”

 

Hope Africa Foundation will be showing support alongside sponsors at AFWNY including: Ladybrille, Bisila Wines, ICY PR, and Jamati, Trendy Africa, Munaluchi, BHF, Arik International Airlines, Revlon, Dollhouse and Skinny Water, Room Mate Hotels.
