$1000 Scholarship to Support Women in Technology
Aprovecho is pleased to announce a $1000 scholarship to support the participation of a woman student in the 2016 Appropriate Technology Series! In a field traditionally populated by men, we wish to encourage women considering a career in technology as well as those who may be seeking the skills and understanding to apply appropriate technologies within the home or homestead. If you would like to apply or know someone who may be a good candidate for this opportunity please register HERE.
$10,000 Matching Grant Offer!
Aprovecho would like you to know about our $10,000 matching grant campaign. We have received from a generous donor the pledge to match each dollar donated in 2015 1:1 up to $10,000. That would transform our 2015 fundraising goal into $20,000! Please support by visiting our FUNDRAISING PAGE and either donating or sharing the page with your friends. MORE INFO.
