ABOUT THE COMPANY – MMEG

Margaret McNamara Education Grants (MMEG) is a non-profit, public charity that has been established since 1981. MMEG supports and empowers women from developing countries by providing them with education grants, aiding them in establishing their personal future and the future of their country.

Before her death, Margaret received the highest civilian distinction in the United States, the Medal of Honour, in recognition of her important contributions.
