Annual DE Day of Service - June 13

The DE Day of Service will always be the second Wednesday of June, so this year it is June 13th.

What is it again?
Using this day (or week), is a way for DEs to transform their training and its teachings into community service to empower our members and strengthen local communities. We are asking DEs across the country (and around the globe) to embrace the DE Day of Service - and work individually or collectively to complete a project to improve the lives of others – and then tell the story. Consider service ideas that support making a difference around the Development Issues (health, housing, hunger, access to credit, savings mobilization, transportation, education, environment, appropriate technology, women in development etc).

What can you do now?

Start planning your activity if you haven’t already. Be sure to take a picture or two. Then on or shortly after June 13th, let the Foundation know what you are doing!
