Immigrant and Refugee Resource Village of Albuquerque and its flagship program New Mexico Womens' Global Pathways asks all who interface with resettled families from AFRICA to ensure that they tell family members to look for 2020 CENSUS MAIL and not to throw away the census mail, but to call any of the community leaders who reach out to them to notify them of the mail.

From March to July, the federal government will count everyone that lives in the US (2020 Census). You can answer online, phone or paper form

Those leaders can then notify my husband or I. Please note there are organizations doing Census outreach to non African resettled families.

To those able to read and write please complete your census applications and mail right away. Those preferring to complete census online please do so.

I encourage those children who are able to read to explain to their parents who not able to read.

May You stay safe and well during this very difficult time. Please inbox @Nkazi Sinandile or @Irrva Lungile for CENSUS RELATED QUESTIONS.

There’s still time to put your faith into action in 2019! Your compassionate generosity helps children and adults of all ages in my native home rural township of Butterworth overcome the effects of weather, corruption, poverty, and inequality and find hope for the future.

You have helped to bring real life change to men, women, and children with urgent needs include need for clean drinking water.

Special gratitude to the 25 donors who donated ( with some donating more than once) to the clean bottled water campaigns. Thanks to those who raise awareness through sharing our links.

I am writing to ask you to make a $5.00 contribution to our campaign. We are facing our biggest challenge of providing clean ( on a continuing basis till the drought is over) purified bottled water to the most vulnerable including children, the elderly, the disabled and those who have no money to buy water to drink.

I am happy to announce that We have reached 75% of our fundraising goal and have distributed 500 (5) liter water bottles and 80 (10) liter water.bottles of purified water since mid August (man made water crisis) then from October to date (drought related crisis).

I wish You.joy, peace, protection, strength, fulfillment, answered prayers, adequate food and shelter, but more than that I wish You a great holiday season.

Here in Gcuwa.-Butterworth Msobomvu and other locations our Christmas and New Year story does not have to be like this. Something in service delivery has gone badly wrong.

This story will not go away with Christmas and New Year until our government officials take a different, very timely, equitable, seamless service delivery and ofcourse until our dam is cleaned out of silt etc.

Prayers and action needed and requested today. Thank You for continued support. May the good Lord reward You for your generosity. Learn here https://www.gofundme.com/urgent-water-relief-for-children.

What is the relationship of IRRVA and the impromptu South African job skills training project that Supporters helped me to start while visitiny an ailimg family member this year?

1.
I am the founder of New Mexico Women's Global Pathways an educational and job skills training flagship program of IRRVA https://www.gofundme.com/vukuzenzele-sewpatchandfryfund.

(Read latest update of today via this link and please support this 100% non funded by any government, foundation or other funding entities. I do not get paid.

2. NMWGP which is now merged with IRRVA was established by me alongside Asian and African women with support from New Mexico Community supporters and the South African project though I started in May independently is supported financially 90% by supporters from New Mexico Albuquerque specifically with some supporters who moved from Albuquerque to Texas.

I thank all those who had confidence that I could really start and finish the project ( three weeks before I return to Albuquerque where I will ask the board of my organization to adopt the South African project). Students will then be on their own creating and selling. I am very proud of these young ladies who took this j9b skills informal training).

I forgot something very crucial which is derailing our training. We are not able to sew because We ran out of funds to pay and supply electricity for plugging and sewing where We sew as a group at my late Mama house. Residents there who allowed to use the room are sewing students and have no money. Can You please? I can't help this time around picket money gone! We contemplate buying manual sewing machines that need no electric usage.

INVESTING IN CHILDREN/FAMILIES

Immigrant and Refugee Resource Village of Albuquerque and its educational and micro enterprise development program New Mexico Women’s Global Pathways is dedicated to serving vulnerable, yet resilient children/families who resettle in New Mexico. IRRVA is a 100% volunteer driven non profit with a 501 c (3) status. We are in collaboration with several local organizations, and are committed to empower, motivate and support locals, refugee, immigrant and asylum seekers while promoting their social, economic, and politial empowerment. Our goal is to increase families’ sense of identity, self worth, and realization of their full potential through: helping children learn the basics of reading and writing, computer science, job skills training in crafts such as needle art, sewing, weaving, leadership development, supporting and celebration of their voices, capitalizing on their strength, knowledge and skills, empowering them for leadership roles now and in the future, involving them in all aspects of decision making and promoting cultural understanding and tolerance among ethnic families.

IRRVA/NMWGP seeks to be more than just another agency. It seeks to be an oasis of positive social change and seeks to reinfore the best of human values, which are peace, respect, love and tolerance. One of IRRVA golas is to encourage families to preserve and share their tradtions and history with all whom embrace the culture, while bridging the cultural gap between people of all backgrounds.

NEWS Nelson Mandela quotes about children 12/8/2015 1 Comment The children must, at last, play in the open veld, no longer tortured by the pangs of hunger or ravaged by the disease or threatened with the scourge of ignorance, molestation and abuse, and no longer required to engage in deeds whose gravity exceeds the demands of their tender years. (10 December 1993) Few things make the life of a parent more rewarding and sweet as successful children. (3 March 1981) There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children. (8 May 1995) Our children are the rock on which our future will be built, our greatest asset as a nation.They will be the leaders of our country, the creators of our national wealth who care for and protect our people. (3 June 1995) The children who sleep in the streets, reduced to begging to make a living, are a testimony to an unfinished job. The families who live in shacks with no running water, sanitation and electricity are a reminder that the past continues to haunt the present. (28 July 1996) Africa is renowned for its beauty, its natural heritage and prolific resources – but equally, the image of its suffering children haunts the conscience of our Continent and the world. (2 August 1996) Let us reach out to the children. Let us do whatever we can to support their fight to rise above their pain and suffering. It always gives me great pleasure to be surrounded by the beautiful children of our land. Whenever I am with energetic young people such as yourselves I feel like a recharged battery, confident that our country can look forward to great things. You are the future of this country – you are the people who will lead us into the next century. (23 April 1997) The true character of society is revealed in how it treats its children. (27 September 1997) Each of us as citizens, has a role to play in creating a better world for our children. (9 May 2002) Our children are our future and one of the basic responsibilities is to care doe them in the best and most compassionate manner possible. (7 November 2003) One of the way we can build a better future for our children is by empowering them through allowing them to speak up for themselves. Of course, we as adults have to guide them and to take the ultimate responsibility but that is something quite different from patronising them. The rights of children must, importantly, include the right to be themselves and to talk for themselves. (November 2003) ​ Our children are our greatest treasure. They are our future. Those who abuse them tear at the fabric of our society and weaken our nation. (22 November 1997)
