Recent Grad Success Story: Carolyn Worthge

The folks in 3CE caught up with Carolyn Worthge, over winter break to hear more about her experience working with the ONE Campaign as a Faiths Act Fellow with the Tony Blair Faith Foundation. Carolyn, originally from San Mateo, California, graduated from Lewis & Clark in May 2011 with a degree in Sociology/Anthropology and a minor in Music.

3CE: Tell us a little bit about your experience as a Faiths Act Fellow with the Tony Blair Faith Foundation.

Carolyn Worthge: The Faiths Act Fellowship brings together 34 people from different faith backgrounds to work in interfaith pairs at non-profit organizations in the US, Canada, the UK, India, and Sierra Leone.  Our goal is to show that despite what the media might tell us, faith can be a force for good in the world.  There is a common call to service in each of the world’s major religions, and our goal is to bring people together across faith lines to take action on the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.  We focus primarily on global health and malaria, and create opportunities for people to take action both locally and globally by inviting people to join ONE and raise their voice to fight extreme poverty, volunteer with us through monthly interfaith service projects in DC, and donate money to save lives and fight malaria in Sierra Leone……
