Message from the president What an extraordinary experience it is to serve on the Margaret McNamara Memorial Fund Board of Directors! The many women who have received grants from the Fund—205 as of 2012—are what inspires and motivates the MMMF volunteers to work so hard. Now that we can more easily stay in touch with grantees and help them network, we are further impressed by their strength in the face of adversity and leadership in improving the lives of women and children. Yet the opportunities to interact with other Board members and volunteers also motivate us. The 2011 MMMF International Crafts Fair involved eight months of organizing by the Fair Chairs, and many more volunteers to carry out its three days of sales. The equally important fundraising effort undertaken by MMMF Friends to ask our loyal donors to continue their direct financial support will be partly folded into the World Bank’s Community Connections Campaign in 2012, hopefully growing our base of donors. Two Selection Committees and their respective Panels again found excellent candidates for this year’s 19 grants. The grantees’ trajectories are detailed in this report. MMMF’s story was chronicled in 2011 both in the publication of our history book “30 Yearsof Supporting Women’s Education: the Margaret McNamara Memorial Fund,” and in our short video, both available at our website www.mmmf-grants.org. A pilot grant program for Latin America was launched. We thank not only these volunteers and donors, but also the World Bank and the World Bank Family Network for their invaluable in-kind support. We are grateful also for the Bank-Fund Staff Federal Credit Union’s generous donation and for pro-bono legal advice from WilmerHale. I express my sincere appreciation to the officers and members of the Board and advisors for assuring yet another successful year of grantmaking to support education of women from developing countries, and wish my successor, Andree Wynkoop, great success in leading this exceptional volunteer organization.

Charlotte Jones-Carroll, MMMF President 2011-2012 3

who we are The MMMF was founded in 1981 in honor of Margaret Craig McNamara’s life-long commitment to women and children and her advocacy of education. The MMMF is affiliated with the World Bank Family Network and, except for one staff member, all are volunteers. The Board of Directors makes policy and raises funds; Selection Committees process applications; and separate Selection Panels select candidates who are presented to the Board for final approval. The MMMF is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit public charity based in Washington, DC. Contributions are tax deductible in the US to the extent permitted by law under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

what we do The Margaret McNamara Memorial Fund (MMMF) provides grants to women from developing countries to help further their education and strengthen their leadership skills to improve the lives of women and children in developing countries. The MMMF considers applicants who are at least 25 years of age, demonstrate a commitment to women and children, and plan to return to their countries within about two years after completing studies financed by the grants. Since 1983, the MMMF has awarded over 200 grants, totaling over $1.6 million, to women from 61 developing countries.

14


The selection process For women studying in the US and Canada, the Selection Committee normally comprises 15 international members and carries out its work completely independently of the Board until the final stages. After a four-month period in which applications are received, the Selection Committee begins two rounds of screening, narrowing the field to a short list of candidates. These are passed to the Selection Panel, which consists of a subset of the Committee plus five new people— World Bank staff or retirees. The panel concludes which candidates to propose to the Board, which makes the final decision. For women studying at the Universities of Pretoria and Cape Town, a separate Selection Committee carries out the work, following a similar process.

fundraising The 2011-12 annual request for donations from Friends of MMMF has raised over $48,000 for MMMF programs. Generous donors to the Friends campaign have generated over $600,000 since 1993 and allowed expansion of the grant program to many more women. In addition to a donation from the Bank-Fund Staff Federal Credit Union funding an additional grantee annually, the MMMF gratefully receives contributions from World Bank staff in lieu of their retirement parties. Family members of the late Leila Zlaoui, a Bank staff member, supported by many of her friends and former colleagues, have established in 2012 a multi-year MMMF fund to enhance the grant funding available to women from North Africa and the Middle East. In October 2011, the 26th MMMF International Crafts Fair was held In the main World Bank complex. Once again, dozens of vendors offered tantalizing goods during the three-day Fair, which was supported by many volunteers. Overall, the Fair brought in over $41,000.

The Forum, knowledge exchange and networking The 19 women selected to receive MMMF grants in 2012 were invited to ceremonies in Washington, DC and South Africa. The main event is the Forum, in which each recipient shares her story and goals with MMMF supporters, Bank staff and guests. These visits also provide an opportunity for the grantees to meet MMMF Board and Selection Committee members as well as each other. Often this initiates relationships and networking among the grantees, particularly those who are pursuing similar goals. MMMF is currently also strengthening its network of earlier grantees to link those who might be in the same professional field or country. While the US/Canada grantees are in Washington, MMMF tries to take advantage of the World Bank’s deep knowledge base by identifying experts in specialized fields, such as health, education and social capital, to meet with grantees or serve as future contacts. The women also learn about the Development Gateway program, a means to access up-to-date sector development knowledge.

I want the women, the youth and the girl-child to be empowered in this area.” Patience Akih (Cameroon) “I am studying issues of vulnerability to food security because rural women and children tend to suffer more when there are livelihood shocks, such as high food prices or HIV/AIDS.” Boipelo Freude (Botswana) “ I’m pursuing a Master’s in Public Policy as it will help me hone the skills I need to get where things are happening. I hope to help in the drafting of policy and decisions and later legislation to actually empower women and children.” Makondo Kabinga (Zambia)

A recipient ‘s Story “Receiving the grant was one of the major achievements of my life, but the greater realization of the impact of the grant was made clearer when I arrived in D.C. It was for the first time in my life that I felt that my passion for educating the marginalized children who are disabled, victimized by poverty and war was finally recognized and appreciated and by others, and not just others, but women who have dedicated their lives to making a difference in the world. Thus far this road I traveled felt lonely at times; full of sleepless nights, ridicule, countless tears and hardships. There was a time when no one believed in what I wanted to do. Many times I had come very close to giving up. I had only my faith and the thoughts of the children whom I wanted to serve that kept pushing me forward.” “The one thing I will never forget about this experience is that I had the privilege of meeting a group of women [MMMF Family] who have committed their lives to helping women like me. I will never forget that within the large somewhat overwhelming buildings of the World Bank, somewhere in a small corner office are a small group of women who are building bridges of change, love, acceptance and service; a group of women who are making a difference in the world, one woman at a time.” Grace Handy, Sri Lanka, 2009 MMMF Recipient
