Hello friends, family and supporters,
I need your help this summer. Some of you know that I am currently a graduate student in International Education Development at Teachers College in New York City. I just finished my first year (Woohooo) and will be spending my summer doing volunteer research in Burundi.
During my last semester I was an intern with Village Health Works (VHW), a non-profit organization, which provides quality, compassionate health care, while treating the root causes of illness through a clinic in Kigutu, Burundi. They are doing amazing work in Kigutu with their clinic, please check them out: http://www.villagehealthworks.org/
The organization is interested in extending their services to the community by providing quality education to children in the clinic's catchment area. I was asked by the Executive Director and Co-Founder to suggest education interventions that would improve learning conditions and educational outcomes. I will be spending a month and a half in Burundi collecting data, surveying teachers and interviewing VHW staff members among other things.
I have applied for funding that will cover half of my expenses, but I need help with to the other half. That's where all you beautiful people come in. A dollar, two or three is appreciated and will help this struggling grad student provide Village Health Works with much needed research before they start providing education interventions.
Thanks in advance!
