Fall Newsletter 2012

When and Where I Enter, Inc. is excited to present our first newsletter!  Please click here to read about our latest news and upcoming events. We will be sending our newsletter out periodically to let you know about upcoming events, activities of our grantee organizations and volunteer opportunities.  In this issue we have included information about two of our three grantees. The third grantee will be featured in our next issue. We are also featuring a new program called Friends of WWIE. This program was created to fund a grant for economic development and education. Lastly, you’ll find an article about our upcoming annual fundraiser Salsa Under the Stars: A Fifth Anniversary Celebration on Friday, October 19th, 2012. This will be an unforgettable evening at The Alden Hotel, a semi-outdoor oasis in the heart of downtown Houston.

WWIE was created to empower Afro-Latina women and girls to improve the quality of their lives and to become self-sufficient contributing members of the community through meaningful socio-economic participation. Over the past four years, we have had the privilege of awarding $44,000 to ten organizations in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. Our work and our grants are only made possible because of you, our supporters. We truly appreciate your support and we look forward to many more opportunities to share more about our work in the months to come.

Enjoy!

Sincerely,

Veta Byrd-Perez

Founder and Executive Director
