We have had over 100 more women participate in the vocational training program since our last update, just shy of our goal to reach 1,000 women in 2014! It is our hope and desire to reach more women in 2015 by training other trainers and utilizing mobile technology as teaching tools. Please help us ensure that Pakistan is no longer the second lowest ranked country of women in the workforce. Let us make sure that women can gain skills and contribute to family and community income to break the cycle of poverty and live more financial secure, educated, and healthy lives. Women and girls with means and education are more likely to ensure their children are educated, leading to less vulnerability and engagement in extremist activities.
We are very lucky to be among 8 other organizations with access to over $20,000 remaining in matched funds from Safer World Foundation. Help us maximize this opportunity and see your donor dollars go further. Safer World provides a 50% match for the vocational training program until the funding pool is used! Please share this opportunity with your friends and family that you think might be interested in supporting a project like this and seeing their support matched.
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.
