Donate to the Developing World Outreach Initiative (DWOI) and Help Make a Difference!!

The DWOI is in need of sampling equipment donations for a project in India. Specifically we are looking for 5 Hi-Flow and 5 Low-Flow sampling pumps in good working conditions plus one flow calibrator. If anyone has any to donate they should contact Karen Gunderson at [email protected].

 

Your donations and assistance allow you to do what matters and enables the activities of the Developing World Outreach Initiative (DWOI).

Do you prefer that your charitable donation goes straight to a worthy organization that needs it? With no administrative fees or overhead?

Here's your chance to donate directly to an occupational health and safety cause that matters and has made an impact. This year, DWOI volunteers have screened numerous applications from international non-governmental organizations and universities and awarded five $500 training grants and three $2,000 technical grants, but there are still additional worthy projects awaiting funding! We have exhausted all available technical grant funds contributed by National AIHA ($6,000) and training grant funds contributed by AIHA NCS member David Kahane ($2,500) along with remaining historical DWOI funds.

We are asking for donations from you,  AIHA NCS members,  to try to raise $2,000 to fund the following runner up projects:

-Two training grants ($500 each)  for safety training for farm workers in Kenya and electronic workers in Mexico.

-One technical grant ($1,000) for an assessment of DDT application practices for malaria eradication in Uganda.

If we can also raise an additional $500 to match David Kahane's generous $2,500 donation,  DWOI can do even more good work!
