We are pleased to share that a training center in Multan has been opened and over 500 women in 2013 trained in partnership with over five different organizations throughout Pakistan. We have several more scheduled over the next few months and will have no problem of meeting our target goal of training 1,000 women this year. Thank you to all of our supporters who have made the success of this program possible. We plan to support the female entrepreneurs beyond graduation by providing them with the market linkage and business support they need to have successful enterprises.

We have just received a renewed matching grant from Safer World Foundation that enables donors to receive a 50% match for the vocational training program until the $50,000 funding pool is used (eight other organizations are also eligible)! Please share this opportunity with your friends and family that you think might be interested in supporting a project like this and seeing their donor dollars go farther.

MDF encourages your involvement and welcomes any ideas that would help us to reach deserving young women in Pakistan and attract wider support. The project that you are supporting provides a safe place for mothers and their families to learn and develop skills that help make the world a safer and more secure place for all. Please help us generate awareness – become a fan of our Facebook page, join us on Twitter, and share with your networks. If you would like to start a MDF Allies in Action group in your community there are various one-time or re-occurring ideas and activities that we would be pleased to share. You can reach us at info@marshalldirectfund.org or +01 (970) 963-3150. Learn more about our activities by visiting our website at www.marshalldirectfund.org

Thank you on behalf of the students, entrepreneurs and MDF staff!
