Inaugural Alumni 👩🏻‍🎓 trip to get creative and sweaty with exciting new projects.

I’m feeling lucky 🍀 

I have been so fortunate to be invited into a trip with a small group of talented DMU alumni from all different professions to see what the potential impact of graduates can make on this well established volunteer project and for the people  in these disadvantaged but incredible communities. 

With my midwifery training and work on NICU I’m hoping I can use my knowledge and experience to advocate for the complex issues of women’s and newborn health. 

“There can be few projects making more of a difference to people’s lives than the DMU Square Mile India project.

Flood-risk homes are being rebuilt, children are getting an education that would otherwise be denied them, people are getting tests that are improving their hearing and youngsters are getting dance and drama lessons. 

The project, working alongside the local charity Manav Sadhna, has now expanded to strengthen the education programme across five community centres in the city, which provides learning support to 2,000 children.”
