Baltimore, Maryland, Saturday, April 21st 2018

PLEASE CLICK ON THIS IMAGE TO SEE COMPLETE PROFESSIONAL PHOTO ALBUM OF THE EVENT​​

The Dinner-Concert-Gala-Fundraiser, all rolled up in one was a ROARING success with the sorority's goals not just met but surpassed and we would like to seize the opportunity to, once more, sincerely THANK all our DONORS and GUESTS for making it all happen!!!
GOD BLESS YOU, ONE & ALL!!!

​2. THE STA FALLEN SISTERS SCHOLARSHIP INITIATIVE (SFSSI)
(Unveiled in February 2018)

This project which was designed  with the purpose of assisting children for whom their deceased/fallen mother was the sole source of funding for their upkeep and education. 

Less than a month after it was unveiled in February 2018, a generous S.T.A. sponsor donated $1,000.00 towards the Project and when S.T.A held its first fundraiser, (mentioned above), more contributions were made.

S.T.A. then embarked on a rigorous identification, screening and selection  process to pick out  the first beneficiary of the worthy initiative and it is pleased to announce that Ms NATALIE NJOH met the criteria and was designated as the first recipient of the S.T.A. Scholarship.

Natalie is daughter of Late Ms Clara Njoh, who  passed away prematurely on April 10th 2016 leaving behind two children, Denis and Nathalie as well as aging parents, siblings and an extended family who depended on her.

Late Clara was a single mom and worked with CDC. Her dream of furthering her education was limited by her family who needed her support. She was extremely dedicated to her family.

After obtaining what the cost of Natalie's BOOKS & TUITION will amount to directly from the school of Natalie's choice, S.T.A. has disbursed the funds necessary to take care of her Academic needs, and to that sum will be added a Stipend to help with some associated/related necessities.

(SEE EXCITING UPDATE - VIDEO & PICTURES, FURTHER BELOW!!)

S.T.A would like to once more thank EVERYONE who contributed towards this initiative, while calling for more donations so that the initiative can continue, to the benefit of other dependent children of single mothers who pass on leaving them destitute.

On Wednesday, January 9 2019, two STA Representatives formally handed over the Scholarship Funds for Miss Nathalie Njoh - the First Ever Recipient of the STA FALLEN SISTERS INITIATIVE, to the Principal of the school of her choice, thereby guaranteeing the pursuit of her education which had come to an unfortunate halt, for financial reasons. 
Nathalie herself and her grandmother were present and witnessed the handing over of the money to the principal.

​​The STA Fallen Sister Scholarship Initiative (SFSSI) seeks to offer educational opportunities to children of fallen mothers. This initiative recognizes the role of a mother in nurturing and educating her children and the challenges the kids face when their mothers die prematurely. 

Understanding the fundamental role of education in upward mobility, and a pathway to opportunities, it is hoped that our fallen sisters dream for the children they leave behind are realized through this initiative. Inaugural Recipient of the FSSI - Nathalie, is 14 years of age.

If you would like to DONATE towards this initiative or any other one of STA's Projects, PLEASE CLICK on the "ADD TO CART" button below. 
THANK YOU!

​5B. WORLD AIDS DAY 
​(SENSITIZATION & BOOK CLUB)

STA President, Ms Roseline Ngaaje, (right), in discussion with Ms Pamela Pujo (left), President of N. Dallas Chapter of DELTA SIGMA THETA SORORITY

When WORLD AIDS DAY (December 1st) came along this year (2018), Ms Pamela Pujo, President of the North Dallas Suburban Alumnae Chapter, and who, it should be recalled, presided over the PINING CEREMONY of the  induction of S.T.A.'s Founding Members back in 2017, reached out (along with other Delta Sigma Theta Sorors), to S.T.A. President, Mrs. Roseline Ngaaje with details on the INFORMATIVE and SENSITIZATION Campaign they had planned via SOCIAL MEDIA.

S.T.A. therefore supported their laudable efforts by helping SPREAD THE WORD, specifically about:
- THE NEED TO BE TESTED and KNOW ONE'S STATUS, and,
- THE IMPACT AIDS IS HAVING ON BLACK WOMEN IN PARTICULAR, and THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE. (See some of the flyers shared above and to the left.)
It was an honor for S.T.A. to have played a tiny role in their much-needed and appreciated efforts to stem the spread of AIDS.

As for S.T.A. itself, it pursued and reinforced its AID AWARENESS CAMPAIGN that it had already launched back in March of this year, (see details further below on this page), forming a BOOK CLUB to help boost Author Dr. SOLOMON AGBOR's efforts to combat the AIDS epidemic.

Dr. SOLOMON AGBOR, author of the CAPTIVATING, THOUGHT-PROVOKING, book with TOP NOTCH penmanship titled: "THE EPIDEMIC OF OUR TIME", is a SEASONED CLINICIAN who, through the Institute of Human Virology of the University of Maryland, joined AIDSRelief, a consortium of nongovernmental organizations and the academic and private sectors funded by the US government to support HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment programs in developing countries.

He learned of STA's PROJECTS, and showed up at the sorority's APRIL 21st 2018 FUNDRAISER in D.C. and made a HEFTY DONATION and then went on to graciously offer to donate 10% of the proceeds from any sales of his book done on behalf of STA back to the sorority to assist the group with its projects!!!

Needless to say, The SAKERETTES TRANSGLOBAL ALLIANCE gratefully accepted the offer and proceeded to encourage Family, Friends, Colleagues and other Well-wishers to participate in the BOOK CLUB or purchase the book, read it, get the REALITY CHECK and the INFORMATION its pages provide, and then SPREAD THE WORD, for INFORMATION/KNOWLEDGE is POWER!!!

Below are a few pictures of some BOOK CLUB MEMBERS who weren't "camera shy".

​​​5C. THE Dr. BETTY SHABAZZ DELTA ACADEMY ...
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA 

At the invitation of the CHARLOTTE ALUMNA CHAPTER OF THE DELTA SIGMATHETA SORORITY, (which has been active in the Charlotte Community since 1942), S.T.A. Rep. Mrs. Egbe Mbiwan Monjimbo gave a talk on "GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP AND THE IMPORTANCE OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE" to a group of African American Girls (ages 11 - 14) at the DELTA CENTER, on Saturday, December 15th 2018, within the framework of DELTA SIGMA THETA SORORITY Inc.'s DELTA ACADEMY National initiative.

The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy is a national initiative of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
It is named for the outstanding and accomplished widow of Malcolm X, a registered nurse who ultimately earned a doctorate degree in higher education administration and curriculum development.
Delta Academy was created out of an urgent sense that bold action is needed to address the issues confronting African American young females such as academic failure and low self-esteem.
The theme of the 2017-2018 Delta Academy is “Catching the Dreams of Tomorrow, Preparing Young Women for the 21st Century”.
This theme reflects current issues and trends of young women in middle school.  Delta Academy seeks to remedy some of the deficiencies young girls face and offer supervised and structured experiences that will help participants grow to be productive citizens with high self-esteem and an appreciation for the demand of an increasingly technological society.

They are committed to addressing the educational and social development needs of middle school aged girls. Our overarching goal is to guide girls into womanhood with educational support and professional guidance that will teach them how to create opportunities for academic success, to develop their abilities and talents, and to become change agents in the transformation of their communities.

*(Information culled from their official website)
  
  
Criteria for participating in Delta Academy

· All participants must be girls as this is a gender specific program
· Girls must be between the ages of 11 and 14
· Participation in the Delta Academy program is not a prerequisite to or an affiliation with membership into Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

Dr. SOLOMON AGBOR​​, AUTHOR OF
"​​​​THE EPIDEMIC OF OUR TIME",
PARTNERS WITH STA
​IN THE FIGHT AGAINST HIV/AIDS

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK​​

  
"One evening, several years back, as we sat on the porch playing cards, my uncle turned to her, picked up her hand in his, and looking squarely into her eyes with fatherly affection, he assured her that despite his meager salary, he was going to make sure that she attended the best schools and availed her of the best education possible.

 “I will send you to Saker Baptist College. You will make your choice of whom to get married to only after you are educated, matured and experienced enough to discern a good man from the rest.” he said to his smiling daughter.

A prestigious, Christian, all-girls secondary school, Saker Baptist College, by the standards of Cameroon is like Harvard, Yale and Oxford all rolled into one. It educates young girls on the virtues of womanhood and equips them with a strong academic foundation for further educational advancements in life, some of their graduates going on to occupy positions of leadership across the globe.”
  
REALITY CHECK!!!!!​​

The “smiling daughter” referred to in the excerpt above is "LUCY" (not her real name),
Dr. Agbor's cousin, (SISTER really), who did get enrolled in Saker Baptist College but who, having been forced to drop out of S.B.C. after just 3 years due to Financial Hardship,
slid into PROSTITUTION in neighboring GABON, contracted AIDS and died as a result. SAD, BUT NOT UNIQUE SITUATION!!!!!  
As you must know, SHE IS NOT THE ONLY SAKERETTE WHO HAS DIED FROM AIDS. 
There are others - known and unknown, just as there are SAKERETTES who are HIV POSITIVE - known and unknown!!

​​ HEAVEN-ORDAINED & BLESSED COLLABORATION!!!

On Saturday, April 17 2018, Ms MPUMI NOBIVA - PIONEER GRADUATE OF THE OPRAH WINFREY ACADEMY FOR GIRLS in SOUTH AFRICA walked on stage to present her KEYNOTE ADDRESS at the SAKERETTES TRANSGLOBAL ALLIANCE'S LAUNCHING GALA in DALLAS TEXAS. Her Curvy, 5 foot ten-ish, Dignified, Stunningly Beautiful Frame and Stride drew THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE from the expectant audience. 
And then ... out came these words from her mouth:
"I AM NOMPUMELELO NOBIVA AND I AM AN AIDS ORPHAN. ... MY MOTHER went from being a Hairdresser to a Cashier; From a Cashier to a Security Guard; and from a Security Guard to a PROSTITUTE”!!!!

MY GOODNESS!!! The initial GASP that plain sucked all the air out of that exquisite ballroom was followed by a “you-could-hear-a-one eye broom-drop”, “did-she-just-say-what-I-think-she-said”, stunned and shocked SILENCE!

Why, that initial reaction? Simply because "NO ONE DOES THAT"! 

Well, MPUMI did not make that shocking "pronouncement" just to be "sensational"! She did so as a premise to unfolding the STOP AIDS & DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CAMPAIGN that she and Ms MONGAI FANKAM - a 14 year old, but already renowned ACTIVIST and PHILANTHROPIST who is in CAPE VERDE right now at the invitation of that nation's FIRST LADY. 
The SAKERETTES TRANSGLOBAL ALLIANCE (STA) did respond with a DONATION of 3,000.00 USD for the Campaign whose SOUTH AFRICA phase did commence a couple of months later, and whose CAMEROON phase that was planned for next month, (JULY 2018), has been deferred due to the prevailing fluid situation in the country.

ENTER Dr. SOLOMON AGBOR, a SEASONED CLINICIAN who, through the Institute of Human Virology of the University of Maryland, joined AIDSRelief, a consortium of nongovernmental organizations and the academic and private sectors funded by the US government to support HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment programs in developing countries.

He learns of STA's PROJECTS, shows up at the group's APRIL 21st 2018 FUNDRAISER in D.C. and makes a HEFTY DONATION! (See Photos Below) Needless to say, STA is ecstatic and mighty grateful!!!
It doesn't end there, though!
It turns out that he has just authored this CAPTIVATING, THOUGHT-PROVOKING, book with TOP NOTCH penmanship titled: 
"THE EPIDEMIC OF OUR TIME"
Well, same as with MPUMI's Keynote Address, this book wasn't written to just be a "salacious", sensational story, intriguing and riveting as it is. It is meant to bring awareness to and alleviate the plight of those affected by the disease and help fight it!

PLEASE CLICK ON IMAGES ABOVE TO VIEW & LISTEN TO VERY TOUCHING AND REVEALING EXCERPTS OF THE CEREMONY!
To commemorate the passing a year ago now of Mr. MAURICE DINKA who, as the article immediately preceding this one denotes, was an AVID SUPPORTER of the SAKERETTES TRANSGLOBAL ALLIANCE (STA), the SORORITY decided to not just attended the EVENT organized in his memory by his beloved wife, Mrs. DRUSILLA DINKA, but go much further and seize the opportunity to SUPPORT the couple's very noble and worthy CHARITABLE EFFORTS through WINDOWS OF HOPE AMERICA (WOHA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization they established to transform the lives of orphaned children, by helping them to reach their full potential in life. 

So it is then that 4 STA REPS - SORORS Regina Kulu-Mofa Ojongtambia, Kidi Ntuba Makia, Marie Takusi Njowo and Dolly Lyonga Lambe were delegated by the sorority to enlist THE SAKERETTES TRANSGLOBAL ALLIANCE (STA) amongst WOHA's LEGACY DONORS, by donating the sum of 1,000.00 USD, to help the NON-PROFIT pursue its mission.

The VIDEO posted above should explain to you - through the words spoken by the STA REPS and Mrs. DINKA herself, just why donating to WOHA made a lot of sense to STA!

MAY THE ALMIGHTY BLESS WOHA's EFFORTS, first, for His own glory, and also for the furtherance of LATE PATRON MAURICE DINKA's stellar legacy!
