Dear volunteers and supporters,
This year, Margaret McNamara Education Grants (MMEG) awarded 7 grants in the US-Canada program, 14 grants in the South Africa program,13 grants in the Latin America program, and 2 grants to Trinity Washington University! This is the full list of the grantees for FY 15-16.
During the last two years, we have made significant efforts to increase both the number and the amount of the grants. We are very proud of the impact that our grantees are having in the developing world. That is why today we want to honor the work of all volunteers, those who dedicate themselves in taking action, raising funds, and donating to our cause.
The story of a volunteer
During his three decades of work in the World Bank Group, some of which based in India and Hong Kong, Colin became a long-term donor to MMEG. Now retired, he is able to volunteer more time to the organization. For the last three years he has served as a Board member and, more recently, as Treasurer. I asked him to share with us why he supports MMEG:
Donate now to sustain our aspiration to continue to grow and give more scholarships.
Thank you very much for your support,
Monica Vidili, MMEG President
