Mama Hope has extended its Global Advocate Program application deadline to MAY 5 in order to accommodate new placement opportunities with recent partners in Kenya and Tanzania. This means there are a few more spots available for individuals with interest and experience in education, girls’ empowerment, community development, public health and women’s micro-finance. Class 13 will kick off on June 8th with a 5-day orientation in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
To get a feeling for what life is like as a Global Advocate, read Megan’s most recent – beautifully written – blog from her field placement in Kisumu, Kenya.
“My favorite spot in Kisumu is the large sprawl of land, overlooking Lake Victoria, that is the home to David Omondi’s evolving eco-farm. Right now, it is covered in rocks and weeds, but as I stand there listening to the flaps of the greenhouses smack against their metallic skeletons, I can see those rocks and weeds transform into the demonstration plots that light up David’s eyes when he talks about his dream farm. We both stare at the climbing beans that are spiraling on their own accord around vertical wooden poles and agree with child-like wonder that plants are so incredibly smart.”
Applications are due May 5, but the sooner you apply the sooner they can begin your interview process! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns about the program or application.
