Serving In The Providence, RI Community: Recap Of Our Service Day At Higher Ground International

June 25th, 2021

Did you know that right around the corner from the Bottaro Law firm is a unique non-profit organization called Higher Ground International?

With the world getting back to normal, we were able to resume our care ministry days of service recently here at Bottaro Law.

HGI works to improve the lives of people living in rural villages of West Africa, while providing meaningful opportunities for workplace and community development to the West African community living in Providence, RI.

At the Rukiya Center, volunteers serve hundreds in the surrounding Providence community.

I enjoyed speaking with Shemika and her team as they educated us about the economic and educational services they provide.  I especially liked the emphasis on empowering women, youth, and young adults as agents of change and self-determination.

Higher Ground International does a great job of taking in and distributing food.

Recently, my team and I were blessed with the opportunity to work alongside members of the High Ground International staff and local community members to pack and prepare food bags.
