Overseas Education Fund

The Overseas Education Fund is 25 this year. It began after World War II when countries in Europe and Asia began to repair - sometimes re-pattern their social structure, and League was asked via our government to help set up democratically run organizations. Beginning as the Carrie Chapman Catt Memorial fund in Now York, its headquarters moved to Washington, D.C. in 1961, also changing its name. ft the bequest of foreign organizations, OEF consultants travel abroad to share League organizational techniques, and in the U.S. arrange for programs for visiting students and civic leaders interested in political processes and volunteer organizations. - Korean civic leader visiting a local League's calendar meeting thought the League was going to publish and sell calendars . She was surprised when told that the League's schedule has to be planned early because of so many local, state, and national program items to be covered within a very limited period of time and that this is the most effective way to allocate woman power. Later, she put a similar system to work in her organization in Korea.

We typically take for granted the processes we have learned belonging to League and sometimes forget to share this experience with so many of our more immediate neighbors. Congratulations to the OEF for the past visible success stories and onwards to more of the same:
