NBC4/T44 – Black History Month Reception Honoring Local Community Heroes
Koube Ngaaje, Executive Director of DASH, was nominated and selected as an honoree of the event, receiving the “Working for the Community” Award, along with three other honorees.
Each honoree was selected for this recognition because of their professional presence and leadership in the non-profit sector; a firm commitment to advancing the African-American community and to making a difference in the lives of countless individuals and families in our region. Hosted by Leon Harris & Molette Green, NBC4 Washington, the evening of celebration and recognition took place Tuesday, Feb 25th @ 6:30 pm and included a vignette that highlights the work of each leader and their organizations.
“As an immigrant who is both African and African-American, I am truly humbled to lead an organization that primarily serves people and families of color. This honor is a powerful reminder of why DASH exists and why I wake up each day, fully committed to advancing our mission by empowering survivors, strengthening communities, bridging barriers, and creating solutions to social problems.” – Koube Ngaaje, DASH Executive Director
