The AllPeopleBeHappy foundation has granted 8 Volunteer Service Awards this Fall. Of the 8 recipients, Martha Lee is working with Manna Project International (MPI) in Nicaragua. Martha is receiving her 2nd Volunteer Service Award from the Foundation.
Martha Lee: “I began my volunteer experience with MPI in January 2016, as a Program Director. In my seven months with Manna Project, I co-directed a creative arts class, an advanced English course, a women’s jewelry cooperative, and the Child Sponsorship and Nutrition program. I have elected to stay one more year beyond my initial contract, because I still have more to accomplish and more energy to serve the community of Villa Guadalupe with MPI. The professional and personal growth opportunities with Manna have been unmatched. I was promoted to the Senior Program Director position in August and will focus my efforts on leading the Child Sponsorship and Nutrition Program. I will be focusing my efforts on leading and organizing our Milk Day weeks, conducting a process evaluation of the program, and all other activities that keep our program running effectively.”
