Volunteer Midwife in Senegal

Steph Mosscrop 

Steph Mosscrop is a student midwife in Maine. Steph is planning a volunteer trip to Senegal, West Africa. Steph tells us: "...this is a midwifery exchange program where students are taught, get to travel and is not a philanthropic trip. I am going there to learn from a group of midwives in an established clinic. While my tuition does help keep the clinic running and buy some medical supplies, it is a business model and is a source of income for the clinic. I will be paying the teaching midwives the same stipend that would be owed in any other setting..."

Staph is asking for your financial contribution. Steph will spend one month, February 15th through March 15th, volunteering at a Birth Clinic.
