Moldova also happens to the be place where C.K. McClatchy High alum, Elizabeth Scheff (class of '04 and UC Santa Cruz grad), currently serves with the Peace Corps. Elizabeth contacted us recently with news of her work in the village of Chiscareni, where she teaches health classes to 1st-7th graders at the local school and presents seminars at the village medical center. She and her teaching partner are reaching out beyond Chiscareni to seek money for a project they've launched to replace the school's decrepit outdoor toilets with hygienic indoor facilities. The Peace Corps has provided a nice link and the ability to donate in any amount to this worthy project. Check it out here.
Also, any in-coming McClatchy senior interested in creating and implementing a "marketing" and fundraising effort for this as your senior project, please let Ms. Wong or me know.
