Katie Baczewski (Nepal)


Katie Baczewski

Katie Baczewski (Care Women Nepal): Originally from the Seattle area, Katie earned a BA from Scripps College in Claremont, California. Prior to her fellowship she worked in the Dominican Republic and South Africa and served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Burkina Faso, where she developed a deep interest in family planning and maternal health. Katie was studying for an MA in law and development at the Fletcher School, Tufts University, when she was deployed to Nepal. After her fellowship she wrote: “.I got to be at the ministry of health, talk to the Prime Minister, speak with UNFPA, leading gynecologists, watch the surgeries take place, tour the hospital, talk to journalists in Dhankuta, attend the health camp, and speak to rural women in their home villages. This really gave me a complete picture. This fellowship (also) built on some of the skills that I had already built during Peace Corps - flexibility, adaptability, and learning how to change directions. I also gained some valuable practice writing grant proposals and developing program outlines.” kbaczewsiki@advocacynet.org
