Keeping alumni engaged
Medha reports that 5,000 young people were helped in 2018--60% of them women between the ages of 17 and 22--by Medha's alumni services and activism. Medha's alumni team and community, which has grown by over 100% in 2018, contributed significantly to this effort. The alumni team is a full-fledged department now with five full-time staff members and 12 volunteer Alumni Champions. Much of the IDS funding was spent on personnel costs.
