Altrusa Backs Schools with Grant

Jill DeVore

  Altrusa of Columbus, OH, has given MFM a grant to help promote all students, especially girls, continuing their education.  This service organization is supporting our tutoring program where students, with emphasis on girls, get extra classes during the week. MFM has also begun a teacher training program where district officials observe and give practical solutions to common teaching problems. As a first step this year, the management committees and parent committees were trained in their roles and responsibilities. The people attending told of their learning with great enthusiasm and gratitude. They had not know what their tasks were. What  a difference this training will make.

 

Thank you, Altrusa of Columbus for helping to make this happen.

 

MFM 2011 trip was a huge success

Jill DeVore

The MFM 2011 trip  was a great trip. We got many very worthwhile projects done. the med clinic saw 2000 patients. 500 micro loans were given out, mainly to women. Installation was complete on 3 new clean water systems. Public Health projects are moving ahead with great vigor, including the first written village health records, villages using the information in the Vital Stats books to determine and find solutions to their particular health problems, and increased training for the village matrons who assist in births.

The MFM teams had many new faces this year.  The groups really worked well together from the beginning. It was soon nearly impossible to tell the new people from the more experienced MFM volunteers. This was great.
