This month's grant recipient is Sustaining Africa Projects in Uganda, Malawi, Kenya, organized by the Mooncatcher Project (www.mooncatcher.org/).
The goal, according to Together Women Rise, is to "help young girls stay in school and complete their educations by giving them the tools to manage their menstural periods with confidence and dignity."
Our event is a potluck dinner with a small educational component. Money that otherwise would be spent on going out to dinner instead is donated to the project.
IF you have questions or would like to attend, contact Rosemary Revoir.

This will be the second time around for this project. Last year's effort was well received. But a few more helping hands are needed. The flowers are donated by Trader Joe's.
