  1. 1. The 20/20 Sisters of Vision Durham, North Carolina
  2. 2. Our History• Joanne Jennings and Denise Rowson would regularly raise money to help someone in need by asking individuals for contributions of $20. Their desire to be more systematic in giving and be able to help more people inspired them to invite a group of friends to talk about giving. In 2008, the group of women met at noon to share a meal and their individual philosophies about giving. They agreed to form a giving circle; believing that by pooling their financial resources, they could make a difference in the world. That was the beginnings of the 20/20 Sisters of Vision Giving Circle.

In 2010, a team of 12 women went to Addis Abba, Ethiopia on a fact finding mission to support commercial sex workers through the African AIDS International Initiative. The goal was to raise $25,000 to support their work to combat the spread of AIDS and HIV and support the lives of these women through the support of this initiative through the The Lott Carey Mission .• 20/20 Sisters of Vision contributed $1500 to this foreign program in the support of African AIDS International Initiative and the commercial sex workers in South Africa and Ethiopia.
