As the winter season comes to an end and the flowers start to bloom, I encourage each of you to consider contributing to the important work done by AIWA – SF.  Each update from an initiative is a reminder that our work is important, impactful, and inspirational.  Every time we visit a project in Armenia and interact with those we are influencing, we are encouraged and overwhelmed with a desire to do more.
