National Women’s Hall of Fame:
New Exhibits and Oral Histories
The Hall of Fame, located in historic Seneca Falls, New York, honors women who have made contributions to our country in the fields of politics, business, arts, science, and sports.

“Hope for Kids” Program for School Children in Haiti
By providing a goat to school children and giving them the necessary training and tools to successfully raise it, World Concern helps the children earn enough income to continue their education after primary school, securing a better economic future. Hope for Kids added a new sponsorship program to provide additional funding for tuition, books, and medical care.
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your timely execution, high-quality writing skills, and organization. You demonstrated a high degree of sophistication in keeping the grant completion process moving. Your ability to synthesize and craft a variety of required elements of the application was due to your past experiences in this field. We will surely keep your name on the list of capable grant writers should we or our colleagues need that service.
