The Gender and Development Committee (GAD) of Peace Corps Ecuador is a volunteer-lead organization that strives to remedy gender inequality in the country. With this mission in mind, the Gender Seminar will help Peace Corps volunteers work with their Ecuadorian counterparts to improve gender awareness. The conference provides a unique atmosphere in which volunteers and counterparts are able to have a beneficial cultural exchange regarding gender and how the roles of men and women affect community development. Volunteers and their counterparts will have the opportunity to collaborate and develop projects that are gender-sensitive.

A traditional fishing community in Senegal is seeking a Peace Corps Partnership contribution of $1,353.50 (676,750 F CFA) for building repairs to create a health hut and to purchase a horse drawn ambulance.
  
The Gender Seminar is a two-day event with dual objectives. The first day’s objective is to discuss the meaning of gender through various gender awareness activities. The second day involves planning projects with a gender-focus using various case studies and a session in how to use the Gender Analysis Matrix (GAM) as a tool to help make Peace Corps volunteer/counterpart projects more gender-sensitive. The GAM assists the volunteer and counterpart in looking specifically at gender roles within a given community and how both women and men will be affected by a proposed development project.

The community is located in the north of Senegal, seven kilometers away from the closest public health care facility. In order to reach that health care facility, community members must either walk or hire a horse drawn cart, which can be costly. Due to the obstacles of reaching a health care facility many people do not seek access to medical treatment when they are sick and the majority of women give birth in their homes. The community currently has a trained midwife and another trained health worker who will be able to work at the health hut once constructed. The health hut would provide a space for women to give birth in a sanitary environment under trained supervision and for other people to receive consultations for minor medical conditions. The purchase of a horse drawn ambulance will allow a patient to be quickly and safely evacuated to the nearest health post when the case is severe. The construction of the health hut and acquisition of the ambulance will provide not only access to, but ownership of health care within the community.

To finance this project the village is funding the cost of the labor and transportation as well as the purchase basic furnishings for the health hut at a cost of $470 (235,000 F CFA) a little of 25% of the projects cost.

A traditional fishing community in Senegal is seeking a Peace Corps Partnership contribution of $1,353.50 (676,750 F CFA) for building repairs to create a health hut and to purchase a horse drawn ambulance.

The community is located in the north of Senegal, seven kilometers away from the closest public health care facility. In order to reach that health care facility, community members must either walk or hire a horse drawn cart, which can be costly. Due to the obstacles of reaching a health care facility many people do not seek access to medical treatment when they are sick and the majority of women give birth in their homes. The community currently has a trained midwife and another trained health worker who will be able to work at the health hut once constructed. The health hut would provide a space for women to give birth in a sanitary environment under trained supervision and for other people to receive consultations for minor medical conditions. The purchase of a horse drawn ambulance will allow a patient to be quickly and safely evacuated to the nearest health post when the case is severe. The construction of the health hut and acquisition of the ambulance will provide not only access to, but ownership of health care within the community.

To finance this project the village is funding the cost of the labor and transportation as well as the purchase basic furnishings for the health hut at a cost of $470 (235,000 F CFA) a little of 25% of the projects cost.
