About AWARE CT: AWARE (Assisting Women through Action, Resources & Education) is a grass-roots organization dedicated to promoting awareness and generating funds in order to make meaningful improvements in the lives of females in the greater New York City area and worldwide. Each year, we support one organization with three key events; a fundraiser, a hands-on volunteer event at the site, and an educational event to bring focus and understanding to the cause.
We are an all-volunteer organization run out of our living rooms with little overhead so almost all donations go directly to the cause.

About CIRI: CIRI (Connecticut Institute for Refugees & Immigrants) CIRI is a statewide non-profit agency that provides legal and social services to immigrants and refugees in Connecticut to help them become self-sufficient, integrated and contributing members of the community. CIRI and AWARE have developed a new program dedicated to young, female refugees and immigrants. The “Girls Club” is a safe space where girls ages 10-20 can come together to make much needed social connections, practice their English language skills, receive homework help and just be kids.
