Vocational Training for 5,000 Women in Pakistan

by Marshall Direct Fund
Jan 5, 2012

Update on Vocational Training in Pakistan

Thanks to your support, Marshall Direct Fund (MDF) received $18,640 in donations and an additional $9,060 from the Safer World Matching Fund Drive for a total of $27,700! The Safer World Matching Fund continues with $12,270 remaining to match 50% of donations. Your donations have brought the Vocational Training program closer than ever to achieving our goals. MDF is partnering with the Foundation for Social Change, a non-profit organization that shares the values and objectives of MDF, to implement their eLife curriculum to train other trainers and provide job and business skills for 200 women in 2012, with the intention to reach 1,000 women by 2013! MDF is committed to empowering and enabling the women who participate. To ensure that our programs are meeting the needs of the community, we recently conducted surveys to ensure the training directly relates to their specific needs.

Marshall Direct Fund would sincerely like to thank all of our donors and supporters. MDF encourages your involvement and welcomes any ideas that would enable us to 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 of us. 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 or +01 (970) 963-3150. Learn more about our activities by visiting our website at
