International Awareness &

The International Awareness and Involvement Committee, a Five-Point Programmatic Thrust of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., focuses on actively helping with issues relevant to international communities and families. This committee is dedicated to developing quality programs designed to provide educational awareness to international issues and disaster relief. Several of our community partnerships include the following: United Nations Association-Broward County Chapter, Broward County Health Department, Grand Bahama Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Immanuel Temple, Holy Sacrament Episcopal Church, and Broward College.

Our current and past initiatives include:

MLK Day of Service (Winner of the 2018 Southern Regional Service Award) – The disaster relief project provided recovery assistance in the form of care packages to families in the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Supplies were provided to communities that were affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.

World AIDS Day – This collaborative event focused on promoting HIV/AIDS awareness with the purpose of supporting efforts that promote reduction to exposure/infection among high risk populations. Information was disseminated with members of the community concerning Broward County’s high rates status of new and HIV/AIDS cases in the United States.

Teen Summit – The goal of the Teen Summit is to provide an educational platform for high school students, with the support of school administrators, to discuss setting personal goals. The topics encompass but are not limited to self-esteem building, developing healthy relationships, and continuing education. The program was first introduced in 2014 on the islands of Bimini and Freeport, Bahamas.

Help for Haiti – This clothing and personal items project provides donated school supplies and toiletries to local schools in Haiti. In 2018, the committee partnered with Immanuel Temple by contributing funds to help children in a sponsored orphanage.

International Bazaar – This outdoor extravaganza features international cuisine, arts and crafts, and fun for the entire family. Funds raised during the International Bazaar have helped support clean water initiatives in Africa and Haiti.

Treats for Troops – The international initiative was implemented to provide essential toiletries and supplies to troops stationed overseas. From this effort, we were also able to implement another initiative that assisted a servicewoman stationed overseas.
