"Unified Gift” from the Triennial Meeting

ECW Triennial Meeting  July 7th: each Triennium the Episcopal Church Women give  a “Unified Gift” from the Triennial Meeting; the Diocese of WMA contributed to that gift.  In 2012 the gift will go to Episcopal Relief and Development designated for NetsforLife® . The goal is to purchase 1000 nets at $12 each, and I believe we will meet  or exceed that goal. Today Joy Shigaki, director of the NetsforLife® Inspiration Fund, came and talked to the Triennial Meeting delegates about NetsforLife®,  a ministry that started in 2006 in response to the Millennium Developments goals and to date has distributed 8.5 million nets along with on the ground training and evaluation for effectiveness.
