This fund supports the education of young women with limited economic resources who might otherwise not be able to complete their studies. This education project reaches out to eight regions in the State of Oaxaca and 68 rural indigenous communities. Since its inception in 1995 over 100 young women have benefited from the project and 23 have now finished their university programs.
IOUF is proud to participate in this educational project which has many positive benefits for both women’s education and their home communities.

Toothman, M.S., IOUF Director of Sustainability participated in a seminar on “How Greek Traditions Transformed the Waterfront” led by Archeologist, Brendan Burk of the Lighthouse Archeological Maritime Program at Flagler College.  As part of the St. Augustine Historical Research Institute, the Program presented the role of Greek immigrants with a specialty in building fishing vessels for shrimping.  At one time, St. Augustine, Florida was the shrimping capital of the world. This cultural shrimping industry has vanished and has been replaced by an over-seas commercial fishing industry that is currently overfishing and depleting the oceans and denying future generations of vital sustenance.

Prof. dr. Hakemulder with students

In whatever you do, you should be careful about the ending and the beginning. What is done well inevitably turns out well, and what starts well finishes well. If you are as careful of the end as of the beginning, then there will be no failure.
