Issue 08 - Call for Nominations for 2018 DAANA BoD

Call for Nomination for 2018 DAANA BoD /2017 Scholarship Program Update   

Dear Member,

Year 2017 is just about to end and DAANA BOD 2017 is trying to add finishing touches to what it had been a yet another exciting year for DAANA. DAANA is almost 9 years old now, while we all have grown old by another 9 years. There had been some interesting conversations as to how we should manage this 9 year old organization. Perhaps, we may see their fruitification in next year.

DAANA Scholarships 2017

Meanwhile, there are few jobs to be finished. We are just about to complete our DAANA scholarships campaign for 2017 and find we still have many needy kids who need sponsors. So far, we have been able to fund 47 kids this year, and we have another 13 kids who were in our priority list yet to get a sponsor.  Therefore, please spread the word around among your family and friends. Chances are that we might find someone who is in early Christmas spirits.

Please use the following link to select student/students that you would like to sponsor and you can name the scholarship.
