A network of microphilanthropy that supports Middlebury students.

UPDATE: Thank you all so much for your donations. We really appreciate the support for our trip and look forward to sharing our trip experiences with you. We still have another $1,500 to fundraise to make our trip possible so please continue to donate via this page.

Appalachian communities are affected by high rates of poverty and often feel unheard. Students will work with the Appalachian South Folklife Center in West Virginia to support low-income families by helping them make their homes more efficient and livable through home repair and maintenance work. We hope this will serve as an opportunity to learn more about the challenges that residents in rural communities face – communities that may be both different and similar to our own. Engaging with the community and better understanding rural poverty will be key themes of this experience.
