Support the Latrine Project!

Sep. 22nd 2017

Improving Hygiene and Sanitation for Girls in Cameroonian Schools

An estimated 40 percent of the population in Cameroon lives below the poverty line. Cameroonian women need reliable access to education to improve their earning potential and the quality of life.   Unfortunately, the lack of access to sanitary facilities and feminine pads have dissuaded many girls from attending school once they reach puberty. By dropping out of school so young, these girls will be subjected to the same cycle of poverty that their grandmothers currently experience.

Lets help over 1,900 young girls end this cycle by:

  • Providing hygiene education and access to safe and private lavatories
  • Constructing a VIP Toilet (private, latrine‐style lavatory) in 10 schools
  • Providing reusable sanitary pads for personal hygiene and sanitation

CDVTA Cameroon is facilitating partnerships between It’s Never 2 Late, Western Home Foundation and other supporting states and/or senior living communities in the U.S. with the villages to raise funding for this project. The funds will be dispersed through CDVTA to ensure the program’s successful completion. Please read the attached proposal for more information on the villages, costs, and nitty gritty of this project.

Women in Design has Rebranded!

Jul. 16th 2017

The Women in Design Steering Committee is excited to reveal the latest brand for our members and design community.  The committee brainstormed with our own keen-eyed experts and consulted with graphic designers to create artful, modern and meaningful visuals for communication through new colors, fonts and patterns. 

Colors will now distinguish the events hosted by our different committees.  First Tuesday Recess events are represented by green, our two large, annual Events are purple, orange is Educational, yellow is community Outreach, Networking events are cyan, and gray represents Membership.  

Each of the different square patterns represent each WID member. All the pattern elements together represent all WiD members supporting each other, working together and creating something bigger and more beautiful than their individual work.
