Defiance AAUW hears about SWAP program in Appalachia


At a recent meeting this year, 2013, of the Defiance Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW), the featured speakers were Arnita Yoder and Suzanne Bauman. The women talked about their experience of participating in SWAP (Sharing with Appalachian People). SWAP is a program sponsored by the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). The MCC realized there was a great need in Harlan County, Ky., for support and development services, primarily, because the area has been hit by an economic crisis.
