Join us as we talk with David Clemons, founder of Les Deux Lapins Organization; A Non-Profit Organization directly impacting the lives of students around the World!  Daid has indicated:

"When you think about it, some of your fondest memories as an adult are the experiences you feel when you travel. Our NPO takes students from around the world and provides them a scholarship to travel. My trip to South Africa in 2011 helped bring the idea to life. Two people in particular, Linky Nkuna and Belta Dombeni, at the Madlala Learning Center in South Africa, after I had met them, months later after I got home I felt the idea come to life. These two women made a huge impact that has changed me forever. Linky is a mother to a beautiful son and Belta is a student with a spirit that pulls you in the minute you make eye contact.

In the United States, Women's History Month traces its beginnings back to the first International Women's Day in 1911. In 1978, the school district of Sonoma, California, participated in Women's History Week, an event designed around the week of March 8 (International Women's Day). In 1981, responding to the growing popularity of the event, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Rep. Barbara Mikulski (D-Maryland) co-sponsored the first Joint Congressional Resolution proclaiming a "Women's History Week." The week was well received, and schools across the country began to have local celebrations.
