GFWC Partners With Heifer on Tanzania Milk Project
February 10, 2019
Heifer’s Tanzania School Milk Project is a special focus for GFWC’s partnership with Heifer International. With new milk-processing facilities, there’s now a source of healthy milk available to schools and children who haven’t been able to access pasteurized milk. Through the Tanzania School Milk Project, students in the southern highlands of Tanzania receive nutritious, packaged milk–empowering them to focus on learning instead of hunger. Every $2 raised by clubwomen provides a week of milk for a student in Tanzania, and just $72 provides a daily serving of milk for one student for an entire school year. Learn more

GFWC Millington Junior Women's Club
Each year April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Kathleen Sweeney, Executive Director/Forensic Interviewer of The Child Advocacy Center of Tuscola County (CACTC), spoke at GFWC Millington Junior Women's Club (Michigan) monthly meeting and told members that 10% of the 235 reported cases of child abuse in 2017 in Tuscola County were from Millington Township, including Millington. It inspired them to take action with the "Color Me Blue" Project.
