Womansong’s New Start Program and AB Tech College Advancement

 
I would like to share some amazing information with each of you that you may not be aware of – unless you are a member of Womansong of Asheville!   Amazingly, though not surprisingly, the women who sing with Womansong have raised over $150,000 for their New Start Program over the last ten years.  By focusing on their goal of supporting women enrolling in our regional community colleges, such as A-B Tech, the New Start Program has made grants and scholarship awards totaling an amazing $100,000! 
 
As we move into the season of giving, reflect on the power of collective efforts.  We often say, “No donation is too small.”  That’s because, when combined with other gifts, the impact of your gift can be quite powerful.  The Foundation, like Womansong!, is a resource for many.  Scholarships change lives and create strong communities! 

 

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
