Makama ’14 and Shaheen ’13 Receive Projects for Peace Grants

Mfundi Makama ’14 and Greg Shaheen ’13

Congratulations to Mfundi Makama ’14 and Greg Shaheen ’13, who each received a fantastic Davis Projects for Peace Grant. From the Wesleyan Connection:

“Two Wesleyan students have been awarded grants through the Davis Projects for Peace Program to bring their grassroots project proposals to fruition. Class of 2014′s Mfundi Makama’s $10,000 grant will support The Buddies Program, which he recently created as a way to empower young women in Swaziland through educational achievement. Greg Shaheen ’13 will use the funds to establish a community-based eco-center focused on environmental education and action for teenagers in Lebanon. The projects will take place this summer.”
