Sodha Travel is proud to be aligned with SAWERA, the South Asian Women's Empowerment and Resource Alliance. SAWERA provides free, confidential, and culturally sensitive services to South Asian women and children who are the victims of domestic violence. Their mission is to promote the independence and dignity of South Asian women through education, empowerment, and solidarity.
On October 9, 2010, SAWERA will be hosting their 4th Annual Fundraiser at the Benson Hotel in Portland, Oregon. This is their largest fundraising event of the year and all proceeds will go directly to servicing programs for the women and children. We invite you to attend an evening that includes dinner, auctions, and Bollywood dancing!
SAWERA joins women's groups in the United States and South Asia as catalysts for social change. Tax-deductible donations can also be made directly to their organization. For more information, check out their blog or visit facebook.com/sawerapdx. During the month of October (Domestic Violence Awareness Month), a portion of Sodha Travel's sales will be donated to SAWERA. As a community, let us come together to eliminate the stigma of domestic violence and support and empower the South Asian community. We look forward to seeing you on October 9th at the Benson!
