Description

Start the new year off among friends: join the WAMNY community at our first happy hour of 2018 on January 25th! Come in out of the cold for games, inspirational conversations and a variety of international beers.

This month, we will be joined by WAMNY member Kerrlene Wills who will show us what it is like to be part of a savings group and trying to maintain a livelihood for your family on $2/day. Kerrlene developed Tawala - a simulation game to teach participants what it is like to be part of a rotating savings and credit association (ROSCA) - as part of her graduate program at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.

Our happy hour location this month will also have some traditional board games and 27 beers on tap. We hope to see you and your friends there!
