I found out about this program by General Mills and thought it was worth passing along. I'd like to encourage all of you to participate. It won't cost you anything and will help benefit Malawi families.
Maybe you knew that Malawi was among the world's least developed and most densely-populated countries...I didn't. The life expectancy in Malawi is low (44 years of age) and they have a high infant mortality rate (89 deaths per 1,000 births, the 14th highest in the world. All of this is because of the extreme poverty there.
I belong to a group called MyBlogSpark, which is how I heard about this new program that was announced today at the Clinton Global Initiative Fifth Annual Meeting. President Clinton introduced a very unique commitment between General Mills and CARE called Join My Village. This is an online community that was developed to help fight poverty in Malawi through the empowerment of women and girls.
Here's how you can get involved:
Join My Village is setting out to drive measurable and long-term positive impact with women and families in Africa by tapping into the inherent power of women to connect with, and provide strength for, other women.
