Transforming Education in Rural India

 

This broadcast is brought to you by Alex Pogosky ’13:

IMPACT India is a new group on campus that is collaborating with an established NGO in New Delhi to help provide education to girls of economically and socially disadvantaged backgrounds in rural India, who would not otherwise have such opportunities. Our mission is to fund a Wesleyan-sponsored school that will increase access to primary education for girls between the ages of 6 and 14. We’re also trying to create curricula targeting their personal needs. This will encourage them to become independent thinkers in an intellectually stimulating environment, which will ultimately aid in transforming these communities.

Our first meeting is on Thursday so come on by to hear what we’re hoping to do and share your own ideas! We’re open to any suggestions, and will have yummy Indian desserts!

Date: Thurs., April 19
Time: 7-8PM
Place: 41 Wyllys Room 115
Cost: Free

Clinic Escort Training Sessions

Wesleyan Clinic Escorts is a group that trains and organizes Wesleyan students to escort patients into a heavily-protested women’s clinic in Bridgeport, CT. Clinic Escorts seeks to provide a respectful and supportive space for women making reproductive health decisions. Clinic Escorting is less a political statement than a functional means of supporting a woman’s right to self-determination and autonomy.

Please come to a mandatory training if you want to participate in clinic escorts this semester! You must attend one meeting to sign up to participate whether or not you have been an escort before.

If you are unable to make one of these meetings or have questions, please e-mail Hillary at hbiggs(at)wesleyan(dot)edu, Chantal at cfergusen(at)wesleyan(dot)edu, or Emily at esteck(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Hope to see you all there!
