Update

Hello Donors and Friends,

 On behalf of Darfur Women Network (DWN), I would like to thank you for your support and your generous donation. I also want to update you about our Nutrition & Fitness Program as I promised you.

 We are excited to announce Darfur Women Network has partnered with the Center for Interfaith Cooperation (CIC) to launch the Fitness & Nutrition Program now available as of September 28, 2015.  

 DWN, CIC, Immigrant Welcome Center and Purdue Extension are working collectively to secure more resources and extend the Fitness & Nutrition program with the goal of reaching our diverse community here in Indianapolis.

 The CIC is providing the program access to their gym and fitness equipment including exercise machines, a room for yoga and walking track as well as program-related resources and connections. Our current fitness segment to the Fitness & Nutrition Program is available 2 to 3 times a week.

 Beginning October 2015, we launched the nutrition segment of the Fitness & Nutrition Program in coordination with nutrition classes directed by volunteer fitness trainers and nutritionists to benefit immigrant mothers. The nutritionist, Mary Ann, started her nutrition session with teaching immigrants how to read the nutrition facts on the food’s label. This raises awareness and knowledge about the nutritious ingredients that should be in healthy meals and it helps with shopping strategy.

 Purdue Extension's staff is providing access to nutrition education materials, a kitchen and nutritionist for the immigrant women to learn how to prepare healthy meals for their families and encourage healthy lifestyle options.

 

In addition to the above mentioned amenities, other various resources are now available including community gardening and leadership training, cultural bridge-building, disaster preparation and a youth program.

 For more information about volunteering or participation for the Fitness & Nutrition Program, please contact us online at https://goto.gg/16829.
