Whitney Altizer (left) and Sarah Anne Barrow were among six Mary Baldwin students and their friends who visited the offices of Women for Women International (WFWI) in Washington, D.C., over Fall Break for a day of service. Altizer, Barrow, Jasmine Greinke, and Berra Kabarungi (all members of CGIU: Changemakers for Women ), and Janvier Gakwaya, Justin Lipes, and Director of International Programs Heather Ward helped mail hundreds of letters to donors and sponsors, including correspondence from WFWI “sponsored sisters,” who wrote about who lives in their household and what kind of work they and their families do. Many also included photos of themselves farming and cooking. In addition to their volunteer work in D.C., members of CGIU: Changemakers for Women raise money to sponsor women survivors of war.
