Dallas Youth Team Engages Boys in Women Leadership & Economic Empowerment February 1st at Microfinance Festival at the Addison Conference Center
Dallas, TX, January 15, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Under the guidance of Dr. Dilshad Dayani, founder of World Women Global Council (WWGC), the Dallas Youth Initiative for Women Leadership (YIWL) group will be holding a “Youth Empowerment Impact Festival for Micro-Finance” beginning at 7:00 pm on February 1, 2014, at the Addison Conference Centre in Addison, Texas. The group’s focus for this event is on the economic initiative necessary to change the lives of disadvantaged women.
Addison Mayor, Todd Meier, will be making a brief speech about the organization. The Youth festival will featuring amazing art for sale and will be presenting a music variety show comprised of over 30 local Dallas high school performers joining together in anticipation of raising more than $5000 to further the empowerment of young girls in the Dallas area (contributing to the Irma Rangel Academy and its leadership for girls) and disadvantaged women in South Asia.
The YIWL group consists of high school students (girls and boys) from Dallas area private and public schools. Dr. Dayani says, “The YIWL members are committed to changing history, while enlisting supporters who want to make an impact, and believe that anyone can make a difference from a valued homemaker to a White House staff member.”
YIWL’s goal is to operate as a unique model to foster future leaders by engaging community service and purpose-driven projects locally and internationally that allow youth to learn team building and leadership skills, specifically teaching the participating boys the importance of respect and equality for men and women alike. Its fundraising work is an example of applying these concepts through simple advocacy and to realize the positive influence of change through their efforts in an affected community. The global focus of micro-finance to small businesses and humanitarian endeavors is particularly helpful in southern Asia, as the funds stretch farther than in Western countries.
The Dallas YIWL has a history of success, as recently as April 2013, when they co-organized a teen concert that raised $5000 to help build a children’s foster home in Dallas, TX.
Dr. Dayani, WWGC and YIWL cordially invite supporters to attend the festival and contribute ideas and feedback relating to the organization’s efforts and success to date, or in their words, “Together, we are the power of change.”
