Madjatom is located in an area surrounded by five smaller villages in northeastern Togo, with a population of 4000. It is the site of a weekly market which draws from over 50 kilometers outside the town. However, the nearest Health Care facility is over 5 kilometers away and is not equipped to provide care to the combined population of both villages. The absence of a clinic creates a lack of access to health care. The people in Madjatom are determined to open a local health care facility. They have been able to construct the building, purchased necessary furniture and have even collected money to purchase medicines. However, before they will be able to open the clinic, the community must purchase basic medical supplies. Partnership funding assistance has been requested to purchase beds, scales, stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, minor surgical utensils and other necessary supplies and medicines. A community based organization, COGES will be responsible for the budget, monitoring cost and utilization and will perform monthly analysis and reporting. Presence of the clinic will provide, for the first time in this community, access for children to immunizations and preventive health care. Women, approximately 100 per year, will be able to receive pre-natal services and give birth in sanitary conditions. And, the entire population will have access to health care of illness and injury, and necessary health care services.

My name is Maggie McDonald. I was part of Hungary 8 serving from 1995-1997. Ours was the last group in Hungary. The Hungary mission was designed to be shorter as we were there primarily to help them transition from a communist system. Many of the TEFL volunteers were there to fill in while local teachers went back to school to learn English themselves.
 +
My placement was in Mateszalka in North Eastern Hungary. I taught English in a vocational High School. I taught around 17 hours per week with an average class size of 35 students. Out of the 430 studenst I taught, only 20 were female.  I was paired with a Hungarian teacher who taught all the grammer and I worked on verbal skills.  
 +
For my secondary work, I and another volunteer ran a monthly children's program at a nearby Bosnian Refugee camp. We received a grant from Levi's to purchase sports equipment, art supplies and books for the school. While lonely at times, I'd count my time in the Peace Corps as one of the most rewarding periods of my life and have made lifelong friends out of my fellow volunteers.
