ProsperityME is excited to share with you our first fully VIRTUAL community event! The Black Community has been hit hard by COVID-19, and ProsperityME and partners have been working hard to rise to meet these new challenges.

This year's event will feature a roundtable discussion with immigrant business owners, former ProsperityME students, and community leaders as they discuss the value of ProsperityME's life-changing financial empowerment programs and the unique challenges facing immigrants through COVID-19. We'll discuss the value of community advocacy, working with community partners, and persevering through adverse circumstances to make dreams a reality.

Our Panelists: 

  • Claudette Ndayininahaze - Co-Founder of In Her Presence

  • Gael Karomba - Founder and President of Happy Haven

  • Mufalo Chitam - Executive Director of the Maine Immigrants Rights Coalition


  • Gimbala Sankare - ProsperityME Board Member and Head of Global Talent Acquisition at WEX


Entertainment will be provided by dance troupe INGANZO who will perform traditional Rwandan dances at the kick off. 

This event is FREE and will be live-streamed on our website and through Facebook!

Pre-register today through Eventbrite and you'll be entered into a drawing for one of 3 Hannaford gift cards!

What are you waiting for? It's FREE!
