Starting October, 2016 in the northern city of Arusha, Tanzania, I will spend six months living and volunteering. I will be living and working with a non-profit organization called Vision for Youth that works to connect with teens and young adults in order to develop education programs that foster vocational and leadership skills, relationship building, and positive health practices. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to build relationships with a wide range of Tanzanian youth as well as use my interested in public health to develop health education material that is relevant to these youth.
For the final couple months, I will journey to the more rural Mugumu. Where I will work with the Mugumu Safe House and Vocational School. I am honored to join their work in the movement against female genital mutilation (FGM), by providing safe refuge, education, and vocational skills for regional girls running from the violent unnecessary act of FGM.
