4th Annual Somali Diaspora Youth conference

The 4th Annual Somali Diaspora Youth conference is fast approaching. This youth conference will take place on Friday November 23rd & Saturday November 24th in Virginia.  It is full two days program that includes breakfast & lunch and a lot of discussion. Unfortunately, the funds generated from the registration fees is not enough and most student cannot pay, but they still get in free as we cannot turn any youth away. Therefore, we need your help in making this reality, and something for all of us to be proud of.

Please support the conference through inviting youth to attend and/or sponsoring a student. Donations can be written to Adar Foundation.  Adar Foundation is a 501 c (3) charitable organization. Or donate in this link

Don't forget to stop by the ILIA table while at the conference !!!

Included here are the videos from the last three conference for you to watch.
