The Vicente Ferrer Foundation USA (VFF USA) is thrilled to announce the save-the date for our annual gala, “Recipe for Empowerment” as October 6th, 2017. The event brings together top Spanish, Indian and American chefs from the D.C. metro area to show the interconnectedness of the world through food and will feature Jaleo, La Boqueria, Rasika, Bombay Club, and the Kitchen a Blue Creek among others.
In our 2016 launch event, the 350 guests contributed $100,000 to directly impact 300 victims of human trafficking and domestic violence. Because of this event, they learned job skills like tailors, small batch cleaning supply manufacturing, and other high demand job areas. The women will complete the program next month and we anticipate that 90% will be able to support themselves and their families for a better future within three months.
The VFF USA "Recipe for Empowerment" annual gala helped break the cycle of abuse and foster independence for these 300 women last year. This year our goal is to raise $300,000 which will support the construction of a rainwater collection dam, drip irrigation systems for rural farmers, a community school and center, among numerous other programs throughout Andhra Pradesh India.
