Our Annual Holiday Party

Every year, Sakhi hosts a holiday party that brings together the women we work with and their families. This year, we had over 80 guests.

We were lucky to have special support from Avon!  A team of Avon employees brought gifts of handbags and makeup for women to try on and take home. There were also a couple of South Asian Avon representatives who helped women sign up to be trained to sell cosmetics.

Sakhi has been partnering with Avon for the past few years. They have donated to our work and helped us train and place women in jobs at Avon.

As one woman said, “This is a new world for me. I would not have been able to discover it, if I hadn’t come today.”

We also distributed many holiday gifts for the children!  Gifts were donated by NBC’s Today Show Toy Drive and Sakhi’s stellar Board of Directors.

Here are a few photos from the event.
