12 Days of Giving 2016 Day 8: Brad Major chose Nashville International Center for Empowerment
I learned of 'NICE' when I heard the story of the Founder and President Dr. Gatluak Thach. 'Gat' as he is known by many is a former refugee himself from Sudan in what was known as the Lost Boys.
From their humble beginnings Gat and his team of paid staff and dedicated volunteers NICE offers various programs for immigrants and refugees in Middle Tennessee such as youth leadership programs and after school programs, adult education classes, citizenship support and direct relationships with schools and individuals who work with immigrants.
In this season of gratitude I am so happy to spend time with my friends and family and cannot imagine who hard it would be to be so far away from everything and everyone I know like the families NICE serves, often with little more than the clothes on their back. I encourage you to visit their website, or learn more about programs in your city reaching out to those who are new to our country.
