National Projects

 
 
 
Operation Big Book Bag
This is one of the international sorority's most popular project which was set up in conjunction with the Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, Incorporated. Grand Basileus Dr. LaRona J. Morris developed this program in 1996. It is a program to get supplies to needy school children. The program has already begun with each region participating at their Regional Conference in 1997. Locally, the Lambda Rho chapter collected over $2000 in school supplies for children in their area. The chapter was also featured in the Gainesville Sun and on TV20 for there work with the Porter's Community Center.
 

Project Reassurance

The care and protection of children is, first and foremost, a family concern. But when teenagers have babies, the consequences are throughout society. Children born to teenage parents are more likely to be of low birth weight and to suffer from inadequate health care, more likely to leave High School without graduating and more likely to be poor, thus perpetuating a cycle of unrealized potential. Conducted in partnership with the March of Dimes, chapters sponsor Workshops and other activities that assist pregnant teens and educate teen mothers about the importance of pre-natal and post-natal care, and to better understand infant care and child development.


Mwanamugimu Project

The Mwanamugimu Project is an essay contest. Its primary goal is to provide an opportunity for students to increase their knowledge of the historical and contemporary development of Africa. Its objectives are to provide the target population with opportunities that (1) allow structured ways to learn about Africa; (2) heighten awareness of African cultural heritage; and (3) improve writing and research skills.


Project Afri-Care

A program to provide African women -who produce more than 75% of the food grown on the continent- with grain grinders. Providing thousands of dollars to buy grain grinders for African women to alleviate their backbreaking work, this program is in conjunction with Africare.


Project Wee Savers

This project is designed to develop an awareness of various banking facilities and their available services. The goal of Wee Savers is to allow participants to become knowledgeable of the real life skills of saving and buying stocks and bonds, ranging from ages 6 to 18 years. Participants experience the real life skills of basic investing, setting specific goals attainable through monitoring and mentoring of money and activities.


Youth Symposium

Sponsored in conjunction with and in commemoration of Sigma Week, the Sigma Youth Symposium focuses on some of the prevalent concerns that negatively impact our youth: drugs, teen violence, abuse, low self-esteem, suicide, teen pregnancy, etc. Sigma Youth Symposiums address issues that affect teens today.
