Introducing the newest members of the Malaria Team! Malaria Boot Camp IV came to a close today after ten rigorous days filled with insightful presentations, field visits, group discussions, and hands-on activities. Boot camp graduates are packing up to return to their respective posts. Upon arrival, each Malaria Team Member will disseminate his or her knowledge to fellow volunteers and implement a concrete actions plan in order to contribute to the reduction of malaria in the targeted countries.
The last day began with a session on grant writing and reviewing led by Stomp Program Manager Matt McLaughlin. Participants learned how to properly turn their action plans into grant applications. The next session of the day explored the wide source of online resources and how to use them effectively. Finally, each participant shared his or her country action plan and strategies for getting started. Bon voyage Malaria Team! STOMP!
