Happy International Women’s Day!

8 Mar

UN Women

As part of today’s global centenary celebration, we would like to extend a word of thanks to all the women making it happen right here at Iduka. Since our inception, we have been truly blessed with many volunteer women who care deeply about education and the need to make college more affordable for our underserved students populations.

On this day, it is important to mention early women collaborators, longtime encouragers, and our founding members. Marcia Murphy-Owen, Judy Roberts, Angela Lorefice, Darlene Craddock, Diana Bushong, Dorothy Settlemire, Isabel Gantz, Maria Block-McKenzie, and Hazel Messineo provided the initial support to develop the idea and allowed us to grow. Many others not listed here have also contributed in numerous ways to this project, and we thank them all.

Finally, a very special thank you to all the women volunteers assisting us with the Iduka Africa Pilot Project, who are working daily to make it happen!

Last, but certainly not least, we thank our Board of Directors Chair, Ms. Joan Barnes for her leadership and unwavering support.

To learn more about Ms. Barnes contribution to this project, please visit UN Millennium Campaign or the Facebook album dedicated to Women Make It Happen!… and make sure you stand up to end poverty by asking our leaders to protect and revitalize higher education.
