Why and How can we support the Ghana Trip?
A Difficult Reality:
Every day women across Ghana and much of Africa leave their homes as early as 3 A.M. to find water for their families often returning as late as 10 A.M. Some women carry up to 20 liters on top of their heads at a distance of 5km (3 miles). Ten liters of water weighs twenty-two pounds, a fifth of a typical woman's body weight. Many women and girls
have to miss school and forgo education because of the length of the journey.
An Upcoming Journey:
YDS Ghana Travel Seminar students will be participating in a walk/run as a fundraiser on Saturday, FEBRUARY 28, 2004. The Yale/New Haven area will constitute the 3-mile run/2-mile walk course layout. In reflecting upon the weight of water some African women burden every day, some travel seminar participants will do the run/walk wearing
book bags filled with around 22 lbs. of books.
A Source of Support:
The students participating in this walk/run appreciate any financial support that you can pledge. Any gift counts and helps our group defray costs. We also ask for your thoughts and prayers even if you are not able to assist us financially. However, if you help us defray costs, please write the check out to "TRAVEL FUND" and give it to either Yolanda Smith or Justin List. If you would like to sponsor an individual student, write that student's name in the check memo box. We hope you can come to one of our community presentations in April as we share our experiences.
If you have any questions about the Ghana Travel Seminar, please contact Dr. Yolanda Smith at Yolanda.firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions about the walk/run can be directed to individual students participants or Justin List at email@example.com.
*A recommended donation/pledge amount: $5-$10/mile…but any amount helps! Checks can be made out to "TRAVEL FUND" and given to Yolanda Smith or Justin List before March 2.

Baby Sitting Service At Yale University
In November 2002 the Women Faculty Forum submitted a proposal for the development of a Babysitting Service at Yale. The proposal called for a link between Yale student sitters and Yale parents. Since many child care programs are not open during non-traditional working hours, parents often need the services of a babysitter during those times. Providing fairly inexpensive services like this has proven to be a great faculty and staff retention tool, as well as a philosophically sound practice for organizations and the communities and families that rely on them. To that end, the WorkLife Program and the Women Faculty Forum have developed a new web-based Babysitting Service. With the joint efforts and vision of Amanda Geraghty from the WorkLife Program, and Rachel Thomas and Carla Eastis from the Women Faculty Forum, the new Babysitting Service web site is now live! We will formally announce the service in early February, but I would ask that you take a look through it and send me any feedback about the site. The service can only be used by members of the Yale community with a Net ID and the babysitters must be current Yale students. Non-Yale parents will be directed to the Yale Student Employment Office.

Summer Fellowships in the Big Apple
You are invited
to apply for a fellowship to the 21st Annual Research Colloquium. Spend the
month of July in New York working on a research or writing project of your
choice with access to libraries and research facilities at Columbia University,
Union, Auburn and Jewish Theological Seminaries. At a time when religion
appears to be at the heart of humanity's gravest conflicts, it is clear that an
increased understanding of how religion affects our lives is not an option: it
is a necessity for survival. Since 1983, we have sponsored the colloquium
because we want to have an impact not only on how religion is taught and
studied, but also on the way it influences events that touch us all. To that end we invite applications for a
fellowship that will allow you to spend a month at our expense in a
collaborative learning community, diverse in race, age, gender, religion and
intellectual discipline working on a research or writing project of your
choice. The successful applicant will have a capacity for integrating personal
faith with the life of the
mind, and will outline a project that will be of interest to those outside his or her area of academic specialization or religious tradition. For the lastest colloquium information visit:
