Grab a glass of wine or your dinner, and join us as we watch the grantee videos together online.  Learn about the two projects that Dining For Women is funding in July 2020. TTN member Elaine Sorensen will lead our discussion after we watch the engaging videos provided by Dining For Women about these projects.
In Liberia, a debilitating mental health crisis persists in a context of extreme poverty. Fourteen years of brutal civil war, the largest Ebola epidemic in human history, and pervasive gender-based violence have resulted in widespread trauma, especially in women and girls. Dining for Women will finance the training of local mental health facilitators in order to integrate Interpersonal Group Therapy, an evidence-based approach, into existing women’s economic and social empowerment initiatives
With a grant from Dining for Women in 2015, in Amman, Jordan CRP successfully worked with Iraqi refugees to establish a women’s leadership and wellness program. The impact of the nutrition and wellness workshops rippled through the community as beneficiaries shared the knowledge and skills with their families and friends. With this sustaining grant, CRP is expanding its holistic support model to refugees from Iraq, Syria, Sudan, and Yemen.
