Chapter Project: Techno-Links
Each year our local NE OHIO MEDA chapter has picked a project to support. This year we have chosen the Techno-Links project with a country focus for Nicaragua, Peru and Zambia. Our goal is to raise $15,000. Each dollar given will be multiplied by 6 in matching grants by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD)!
$15,000 x 6 (matching grants) = $90,000
We invite you to donate online and designate your gift to Techno-Links.
