MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD
Welcome to the United Eritrean Association (UEA) of the Los Angeles County and Surrounding Areas website.
Ahead of us, there are multiple tasks and heavy workloads that need to be tackled. The current and future tasks compel the UEA to initiate baby-steps to fulfill our vision, mission, and objectives. For the UEA to be effective and successful, it is crucial that parents, the youth, well-wishers of the UEA, and the larger Eritrean community to get involved in the community affairs. Actionable programs, work plans, and creative concepts can only succeed with the full participation of the Eritrean community.
The UEA Board believes that there are untapped knowledge and resources in our community that are awaiting for our collective action. These vast knowledge and experiences are essential for our growth and progress, and will provide valuable contribution to the Board and to the Eritrean community. UEA members have the opportunity to advice the Board on the direction of the UEA, on setting up short- and long-term projects, career development programs for the youth, preparing students for bright future, promoting and advocating the importance of community-based activities, and other relevant activities/projects.
Just to highlight few important points:
Our mission today remains the same as that of years ago: To bring together and nurture our community for unity, for a brighter future of our children and ourselves.
Our principle remains persistent and unchanged: Our communal goals and our children are our bright future.
Together, we will create a center that provides linguistically and culturally appropriate services to the Eritrean community at large and much more.
Our community needs unselfish, hardworking, and committed individuals who can contribute their time and energy towards the community mission.
Let us together create a strong and unshakable foundation today for a bright future!
The Board pledges and affirms its dedication to serve the community.
The UEA Board would like to thank you the previous Board and UEA active members for their tenacity, steadfastness, and determination in safeguarding the UEA by investing their energy, time, and resources. Thank you The UEA Board
