On March 18, 2016, PAFF Founder, Alexandra Borowczak was recognized by the Society of Foreign Consuls for her outstanding achievements and contribution to community empowerment. The event, hosted by the Consul General of the Czech Republic in New York, Hon. Martin Dvořák, was organized in celebration of International Women's Day.

The event included twelve various Consulates - ranging from Algeria to Kazakhstan to the Philippines. Each Consulate recognized the work of one significant woman leader in their community. This annual celebration honors the commitment of women throughout the many immigrant communities in New York that help give the city its vibrancy and contribute to its diversity.

It is an incredible honor for PAFF to be recognized in the company of such amazing women. We could not think of a better way to celebrate International Women's Day and Women's History Month.
