JWW will present the
The JWW I Witness Award recognizes those who have made vast contributions to the fight against genocide and mass atrocities. This year, JWW is proud to honor Mukesh Kapila for his years of leadership and dedication in building an international response to the genocide in Darfur, as well as his persistent advocacy for minorities at risk worldwide.
As the former United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for the Sudan, Mukesh Kapila became one of the first international officials to blow the whistle and demand action on the genocide in Darfur. A veteran of the international responses to humanitarian crisis and ethnic cleansing in Iraq, Rwanda, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Sierra Leone, Dr. Mukesh Kapila arrived in Khartoum in March 2003 having made a promise to himself that if he were ever in a position to stop the mass-killers, they would never triumph on his watch. As Jewish World Watch’s 2013 I Witness Awardee, Dr. Kapila will share his stories as a man empowered to make a stand to to confront global indifference and venality.
The Survivors’ Legacy Award honors activists whose efforts and impact honor the legacy of the Holocaust and display a deep commitment to the fight against genocide and mass atrocities.
In 2013, JWW is pleased to honor Pressman Academy Middle School, which consistently encourages its students to find creative ways to honor the legacy of the past and fight for a more peaceful future. Amongst other initiatives, Pressman Academy’s annual Jump for Darfur has raised over $30,000 in support of JWW’s on-the-ground projects, impacting and improving the lives of thousands of survivors of genocide and mass atrocities.

Pamper for a Purpose will enable everyone to enjoy a massage, hair care, manicure, other pampering services, music and art projects while benefiting the women and girls in Darfur and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
For each suggested $20.00 donation, you will have the opportunity to visit any of our wonderful participating practitioners and local businesses that have graciously donated services and auction items to help create a safe environment for these women and girls.
Onsite you will have the opportunity to hear live music, bid in a silent auction, participate in a raffle, and learn more information about Darfur and the Congo and what we all can do to help.
We’ll also have a kids area set up with balloons, face painting, art, & more!
The highlight of the day will include a demonstration of the solar cookers! Pamper for a Purpose will help purchase from the donated proceeds of this event, which will enable women in refugee camps to cook much needed meals without making dangerous treks out of the camps that may subject them to unimaginable violence.
We encourage you to stop by, pamper yourself, and take part in this movement to improve the lives of these women. Feel great while doing good.
“The pampering I do is the extreme opposite of what the people in Darfur and the Congo experience in their daily life. I can’t imagine the struggle they face. We are so lucky to be here. I had to do something.” – Denise Wetherell, Hair Stylist & Event Founder
