The Fulbright Program: Empowering Families- The Heart of Appalachia

Aug 21, 2018


Affirming, believing, learning, and empowering families in Appalachia. In this chapter of the Heart of Appalachia, Fulbright-Amizade volunteers had an opportunity to talk to Marlene Spaulding, the executive director of ABLE Families in Mingo County, West Virginia, about her efforts to help her community through education. The Heart of Appalachia is a storytelling project initiated in 2016 through a partnership between The Fulbright Program and Amizade in which Fulbright alumni and foreign students engage in service-learning activities led by our community partners in Appalachia, while they capture unique perspectives of life in rural America.
