This year, at New York Encounter 2018, a FREE three-day public cultural festival held in New York City,
AVSI-USA highlighted the work of our partner organization Meeting Point International, which serves the HIV/AIDS affected population in Kampala, Uganda. During the eyewitness presentation Love Without Boundaries, Rose Busingye spoke about her experience at Meeting Point International. Rose brought a video to New York in which the women teach how to craft their famous beaded necklaces.
We also invited our friends to attend events like A Human Gaze, a History; and The Fundamental Economic Resource: The Human Person; and the exhibit Surprise Encounters, curated by Ezio Castelli, AVSI-USA President. At the AVSI-USA booth, we were able to raise almost $3,000 exchanging donations for crafts designed and manufactured in countries where we have projects and partners. This year, our booth featured crafts from Uganda, Ivory Coast, Kazakhstan, Mexico and Rwanda.
