Middlebury

A network of microphilanthropy that supports Middlebury students.

 

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.
