Two students from our Austin Awesome Academy were recognized at our Rays of Change in Austin. They were nominated by their teachers and Awesome Academy instructors. We are so proud of their accomplishments so far and hope for many more in the future!
We are thrilled to announce that June 4th, 2017 was declared to be "Amaanah Refugee Services Day" in Houston! This would be the second year in a row that we have received this honor. This recognition would not have been possible without the Mayor of Houston and the City Council. Thank you to all our supporters in Houston who have contribute to Amaanah's success. We are proud to be part of the most diverse city in America!
This summer, Amaanah will revolutionize the way you volunteer with resettled refugees! Stay tuned. Sign up to our mailing list below. We can't wait!
The MVP of Amaanah’s Tough Mudder team yesterday was 7-year-old Musa Syed. Musa not only raised $950 for the Awesome Academy, he also ran the mini-mudder course! He’s excited to bring back his classmates for the next one. Musa, thank you for being so awesome!
OH YEA! We did it! The Amaanah Tough Mudder team crushed it once again. Thank you to everyone that contributed! Please make this the day better by helping us reach our goal of $25,000!
Two of our team members graduated from the University of Houston this weekend! The rest of the team gave them a surprise party. The food for the party was catered by one of the single mothers that were previously in the Transformed program. She now works as a chef at a restaurant and is doing very well for herself! It's amazing how it all comes together. — feeling happy.
Islamic Relief USA has been supporting Amaanah's work for many years now. This year Islamic Relief USA is launching a campaign to package food boxes and feed communities across this country. 2,500 of those boxes will be distributed to resettled refugees in Houston and Austin through Rock the Block 2017!
