Recent Programs


The renowned Alan Shawn Feinstein Community Service Center at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, invited NAEIF President Ted Wills to help them design a weekly enrichment course to prepare students for a service project to Mexico in February 2005. To help inspire the participants, NAEIF sponsored a visit by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student activist Sindhura Citenini, founder of Nourish International, in December 2004;

In April 2004, the foundation sent the recently graduated Mexican student leader Dr. Georgina Pérez-Liz to be the keynote speaker at the first national student conference of GlobeMed. Her speech was considered the highlight of that meeting. NAEIF also sent two student leaders from Nourish International at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to the conference;  

NAEIF provided promotional assistance to GlobeMed student leaders at Northwestern University to support its awareness and fundraising activities on campus on behalf of indigenous communities in Mexico in 2003 and 2004;  

During the summers of 2001 through 2003, NAEIF’s president led Northwestern University students studying at the Universidad Panamericana on a weekend service trip to remote indigenous communities. Year after year the students reported in their final evaluations that this was the best part of their entire visit. As a consequence, the two universities have incorporated these trips to the countryside into their annual program;

  NAEIF consulted with Medicina y Asistencia Social, a Mexican foundation that serves indigenous communities, in the development of its web site, among other projects; and  

NAEIF helped the medical school of the Universidad Panamericana to develop its "tele-medicine" capability as they attend to remote indigenous communities.
