Learn the Cumbia and Salsa while listening to the beat of Colombian drums and claves to get your rhythm going! An evening of excitement while raising funds for Adopt A Future to prevent a generation of children from losing an education.
More than 65 million people have fled their homes and risked their lives in search of refuge, most of them children. The United Nations Association in conjunction with the UNHCR, an arm of the UN, has launched a campaign for the next two years called Adopt a Future Campaign. This campaign focuses on raising funds for schools in refugee camps overseas. UNA-OC launched our campaign last October, 2016 at our UN Day Celebration Banquet. For the next two years, our goal is to raise $30,000 which will be used to build a new classroom in the Friends Primary School in Dadaab, Kenya. The school consists of 802 girls, and 957 boys. Come spend the evening with us, and help us give the education these children need to create a better future.
