Our names are Clara Rowe and Josh Nathan, and we are honored to join the YAN team as fellows for the coming year! Beginning on September 14, we will be flying to Buea, Cameroon, and will serve as YAN's on-the-ground staff through next summer. In our time there, we hope to continue developing YAN's curriculum, expand its work to new sites, and implement an internship program for our most enthusiastic students.

During the year, we plan to blog biweekly to provide glimpses into YAN's work, and to give status updates on how we are progressing. We hope that you follow us, and we encourage you to reply with your comments, questions, and ideas. For now, we have lots of packing to do before we depart; but please be sure to check back in the coming weeks as we start to post more frequently.

Lastly, we have launched a fundraising campaign for the 2012-2013 YAN fellow travel expenses, and would appreciate any support you can provide. If you are interested in making a tax-deductible contribution to support our work, please visit our donations page here. We really appreciate your help!

Until next time,

Josh and Clara
Portland, ME (soon to be Buea, Cameroon!)
