Thursday January 16th was the Rotary Club of Eleuthera’s regular meeting at Cancer Society of Eleuthera Wellness Center in Palmetto Point. A special presentation was given by One Eleuthera Intern, Madlaina Bruderer of Switzerland and a student of the University of Zurich.
She gave a brief PowerPoint presentation about herself and her country. Madlaina then spoke a bit about what she is studying – Political Science, Cultural Anthropology and Sociology. Her thesis will be on Child Labour. She also volunteered during her two and a half week stay to help design and carry out a needs assessment for a program to empower women on the island. She traveled the entire island along with the OEF team conducting the surveys.
