Partnerships and International Aid (PIA) is committed to furthering the impact of the IAA. PIA focuses on planning fun and engaging events for students in the IAA and Penn community to raise money in support of international charities and to provide aid for international crises. PIA fundraisers have included events ranging from soccer tournaments to charity auctions. This year, PIA is working closely with Puentes de Esperanza, an education fund based in rural Nicaragua. Through our fundraising efforts, we hope donate to Puentes de Esperanza while also being thoroughly involved in their development and growth. PIA also seeks to further the influence of the IAA outside of the Penn community. PIA forms partnerships between the IAA and national and local organizations to create mutual benefits for students and organizations that would like more influence from a collegiate audience.
