Event Details

It is with great excitement and enthusiasm to announce that this year, we are bringing back our Fall Gala. We are celebrating Unity Bridge Initiative’s 3rdFall Gala, on Saturday, November 17th, 2018 at 6pm at The Hilton Alexandria Old Town. This signature event will include an evening of elegance, fine dining, awards, and spectacular auction items.

The theme of the Fall Gala is “Commitment in the midst of adversity.” The gala is a major fundraising opportunity for Unity Bridge Initiative, with funds raised from the event to benefit the upcoming projects of our organization, including, educational programs, building facilities, and bringing awareness to communities locally and globally. Funds raised at our gala will go towards:

  • UBI goal to reach and impact an additional 2000 children within the next 3 years both here in the United States and abroad.
  • Will help provide funding to launch our first youth center in Accra, Ghana.

Unity Bridge Initiative (UBI) is a US-based, registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. UBI’s purpose is twofold: to empower impoverished youth in Africa through education, health, and community-based initiatives; as well as engaging American youth in educational opportunities to increase their leadership and global citizenship.UBI is currently working with schools and organizations in Ghana, Liberia, and the United States.

Over the last five years, we have been able to impact over 4,500 children within Ghana, Liberia, and the United States. Our programs have been able to allow children to experience new opportunities and gain access to numerous resources. We’ve been fortunate enough to open libraries, computer labs, create summer programs, launch pen-pal programs, host local summits, and educate the community about African culture.
