Volunteering Opportunities @ MMEG

Margaret McNamara Education Grants is a volunteer-led public charity, which awards education grants to exceptional women from developing countries. We believe that supporting the education of women from around the world is a critical investment that reaps immeasurable dividends. An important way to repay the support that we have each received for our own education is to pay it forward for others!
