New York – Last night, Seeds of Africa Foundation held their annual benefit to support the foundation’s endeavors. The event, which was well attended by people from the world of philanthropy and fashion, danced the night away to music by DJ Va$htie.

Guests included Alex Soros, Richard Frerejean Taittinger, models Grace Mahari, Peter Nesi, & Claudia Mason, Factory PR’s Senior Director of Fashion Eef Vicca, and our own Editor-in-Chief, Khahlil Louisy.

Seeds of Africa is a non-profit organization, created by former Miss Ethiopia and fashion model, Atti Worku, to educate and nurture children and their families by providing quality education and community development programs. The organization moved beyond the traditional aid model by shifting from mere relief efforts, to providing students, families, and communities with the resources and skills they need to support themselves and find local solutions to fight poverty, increase civic participation, and enhance community re-investment.

Today, the organization announced it’s “I am a Seed” initiative, allowing anyone with interest to build intentional relationships with the students in the Seeds of Africa Program. For ten dollars a month, donors will help provide quality education and opportunities for the the young students.

You can learn more about the program by visiting the organization’s website at seedsofafrica.org.
