AAWO was honored with the Golden Eagle Award at the Gala event concluding the 1st Diaspora Summit in Tirana, Albania, on November 20, 2016. We take pride in our board, members, volunteers and everyone who has contributed over the years to sustain our mission, to be a place for women and girls to be inspired, to overcome difficulties and achieve success. The prize was accepted on behalf of AAWO by Mark Kosmo of MASS-BESA. AAWO President, Dr. Anna Kohen, sent a video message which was played live for the audience upon receiving the award. Further more, AAWO would like to thank the community in the US who has congratulated our organization on this well deserved honor. Thank you for your messages of support and encouragement of our work. We are very excited to share this special prize with you on December 3rd Annual Holiday Event.
