Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. has an extensive history of involvement in international issues. The International Awareness and Involvement Committee is charged with increasing knowledge and action on topics affecting people of color around the globe. The committee seeks to organize programs and events that will shine a light on the world’s critically important social and political matters with a specific focus on issues affecting people of African descent.
Without question, International Awareness & Involvement is poised to extend our “Uncompromising Commitment to Communities” globally. Through the seamless continuation of the sorority’s current national initiatives, “Service, Leadership and Empowerment” will be enhanced in Africa and the diaspora.
In Kenya, we have provided water tanks and wells to several schools located on hilly terrain or treeless savannas distant from water sources that vary with the rainfall. Supplies, equipment and food are in short supply at schools like “I Can Fly” founded by Cha Givens (Member of DST). Providing scholarships for capable students, especially girls, assures that early marriage, rape or genital mutilation is not their fate.
