In February, I spent roughly two weeks traveling all over Malawi doing pre-dissertation fieldwork with the nonprofit Malawi Matters. This was a very quick trip, but essential for making sure all the parts of my project are moving forward. Read more about that trip here!
In May I found a way to engage with a project near and dear to my heart: keeping girls in school! I worked with my mom and a great group of ladies from Hopeful Lutheran Church to sew reusable feminine pads that I will be delivering to women leadership working with Malawi Matters. These pads are the literal difference between school and no school for girls across Malawi. What a difference these pads will make! Thanks ladies!
