Hello Slum Doctor Programme supporters,

I’m Jenny Gerfen, the new AmeriCorps volunteer filling the Education Coordinator position. I’m a recent graduate of Western Washington University during which time I completed an international internship working at an orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for six months. I’d always felt a calling to work in the non-profit sector, however my experience in Ethiopia touched me more than I could’ve imagined. After returning from Ethiopia, I started getting involved with Slum Doctor Programme.

As a former volunteer, I’m thrilled to be working for this wonderful organization with such a progressive and proactive stance on the fight against poverty, gender inequality and specifically HIV/AIDS. I look forward to meeting and working with you all, the most caring, generous and joyful community that is Slum Doctor Programme.
