Parenthood course organizes effort to help African women
Students in a parenthood education class at Northwest Missouri State University are organizing a community effort to help women in Africa through Project Patricia.
Project Patricia is an initiative organized to make and deliver reusable feminine products to African girls who are in need of them.
Individuals interested in assisting with the project are invited to join the parenthood students from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 10, on the third floor of the Administration Building in Room 310. Campus and community members are needed to help with sewing and by donating fabric.
Northwest’s parenthood education helps students gain an understanding of parenting strategies and develop competencies necessary for effective parenting. The course also helps students learn the role a parent plays in the development of a child through class discussions, projects and panels of parents who visit the class to share their personal experiences. Students who take the course often go on to work with children professionally.
