Celebrate Motherhood – Honor Our Traditions and Heritages

Sunday, March 7 from 3-5pm

EWI Office in Convergence

(1801 N. Quaker Lane, Alexandria, VA 22302)

*Remember to please RSVP by emailing

Join us for an intimate female gathering to learn about the customs, traditions, music and food that Ethiopians use to celebrate the coming of a new baby in their lives. Enjoy an authentic Ethiopian Coffee Ceremonial, selection of Ethiopian dishes and a wonderfully decadent cake.

Meet our award-winning artists and business incubator graduates, Mekbib Gebertsadik and Meseret Desta, who are expecting their first child. Learn how one Ethiopian family uses their artistic background and cultural heritage to honor the new child in their lives.

Unlike in the Ethiopian tradition, we encourage you to honor this family with a gift before the birth of their child. Please visit their baby registry at and type “Meseret” and “Desta” in the appropriate search boxes.
