AAASA (Asian American Alliance with San Antonio board),a not for profit organization, which was created in 2014, has been relentlessly working towards uniting and promoting the Asian American Community in San Antonio and focusing on issues that effect the Asian community and the city as a whole.
It has been an honor and a privilege for us at SAINA , to collaborate with AAASA, and be a part of their, growing 17 member organization. The board of SAINA was invited to one of the flagship events conducted on the 19th of June, chaired by "Erik Walsh" the "City Manager". (SAINA was one of the proud sponsors for the event).
The event gave SIANA a platform to talk about our Visions and Goals, thus garnering the support of the various organizations present. AAASA has been very appreciative of our mission and has assured of their help to not only publicize our cause, but also as a larger ASIAN organization to help collaborate and communicate with various Asian communities.
SAINA - the 17th chapter of NAINA, since its inception (a little over 100 days now), has had the privilege to be a part of various forums and events across Texas, like the representation at Philippine Nurses Association of San Antonio (PNASA) ( 18th May), Silver Jubilee celebration of NAINA (25th May), IASA consular camp (8th June), and a few more to name.
Over the course of these past few months, SAINA has been able to grow visibly from the initial 30 nurses, to 100 + as on date. This in turn has driven a greater zeal and enthusiasm within the team to achieve and accomplish our Mission and play an integral role in helping our nursing families and also in the upliftment of our community. The Indian Nursing community over the years has emerged and made a foothold in the Healthcare profession . Nursing education has evolved over the years, with nurses widening their scope of work not only in care, but also research, and, contribution towards strengthening systems ,to work efficiently in Interdisciplinary teams.
Our Indian nursing community of SAN Antonio (an amalgamation of varied cultures), has also been growing steadily and continuously with immense cooperation, mutual respect, hard work, dedication and support. We at SAINA are persistently working to reach out to the larger community and making our selves a stronger visible family.
Together, with our associations, and continued involvement in helping our community , we are confident in building a family of strong , caring and trusted professionals, thus, empowering the fraternity who positively impact the lives of many.
