Dear Friends,

Thank you for your interest in and support of Zaman International! It is only with your assistance that we can continue to serve marginalized women and children in our communities with the food, clothing, shelter and medical assistance they so desperately need.

I joined the Zaman International team in October of 2011: blessed and grateful to accept a position that would afford me the opportunity to empower individuals to make a real difference in the lives of others. With an academic and professional background in social change, international conflict transformation and community engagement, I was anxious to exercise these skills in a new context and with a new community.

Since 2011, it has been my privilege to welcome thousands of volunteers and over 400 partner organizations to Zaman International. From preparing food in our Culinary Arts Kitchen, to collecting winter coats and backpacks for children, to supporting our annual fundraising events, to providing life-changing educational opportunities through our BOOST skills training program, hundreds of individuals, families and organizations have found a home and a project here at Zaman.

At Zaman, we believe, above all else, in respecting the dignity and value of every human being. This respect permeates everything we do and all of the relationships we build, whether with clients or with our volunteers. In this spirit, our team is ready to listen to your ideas, implement your suggestions and celebrate your commitment to service.

We hope you will take this opportunity to make Zaman your Charity of Choice as we work to make the world a better place for our neighbors and our global community.

Welcome to the Zaman family!

Sincerely,

Monica Boomer
Director of Community Engagement
Zaman International
