THE STORY:

MARSHALL DIRECT FUND wrote -

Navigating A More Peaceful World...
Visit, or support participants visiting Marshall Direct Fund activities in the Punjab of Pakistan and an 8 day trek in Nepal. Each participant is suggested to raise $2,500. Invest in education and women's economic empowerment for a more peaceful world! Proceeds will support 1,000 women and  girls in Kashmir, Pakistan, and Afganistan. 

Why Marshall Direct Fund? Since its inception, MDF has invested in the future of hundreds of women and youth in Pakistan. To date they have provided 157,200 nutritious lunches, 1,100 full scholarships, and 1,210 uniforms and shoes to students who would otherwise not be attending school. They do not invest in building, bricks and mortar, they invest in human capital - providing teacher training, scholarships for students. They accept donated buildings or lease them from the local population, uniforms are made by local women, and lunches provided from local vendors, contributing to the economic development of the communities in which they work. They have an innovative long term sustainable strategy where proceeds from the women participating in enterprises from the vocational training they have received, invest in the MDF primary school operations. A modern day exchange program connects students and teachers in the U.S. with students and teachers in Pakistan discussing solutions and peace between the West and Muslim world. Join us in supporting these activities, challenge yourself or support others wishing to do so!
