Programs Are the Heart of AKA

i Feb 9th No Comments by

Heart_FlowersFebruary is the month of LOVE.  A month in which we show our love for our spouses, partners, children, friends and sometimes, even strangers.  It’s a month where we celebrate kindness, generosity and the gift of giving because we LOVE.

As the members of Nu Iota Omega express our LOVE for one another. We also celebrate our LOVE for our International Programs–for, they are, the HEART of Alpha Kappa Alpha.  Rendering “service to all mankind” would be quite challenging if we did not have our programs to guide us in service.  As we move throughout the month of February, we must:

  • LOVE Educational Enrichment as we mentor ASCEND students, collect One Million Backpacks and ThinkHBCU.
  • LOVE Health Promotion as we focus on Alzheimer’s Disease and Caregiver Support, Stroke and Heart Disease Prevention and Mental Health and Wellness.
  • LOVE Family Strengthening as we help end Childhood Hunger, collect Seasonal Wraps and provide Financial Fitness awareness.
  • LOVE Environmental Ownership as we educate and sustain the world through AKA 1908 Playground Project and Acts of Green.
  • LOVE Global Impact as we implement Global Education and Engagement through the United Nations of the United States of America and Education and Nutrition Initiatives in Africa through Africare.

Nu Iota Omega has been challenged to implement these five programs that will impact the world.  We LOVE, SERVE and HELP people in our communities.  It’s what we do!
