The IFHE Development Fund Committee has recommended the funding of two proposals for the 2012 - 2016 grant-making cycle. Each will receive $5000.
One grant is to the Henvalvani Community Radio Station in Garhwal District, high in the Himalayas. Along with Lady Irwin College in New Delhi, staff, faculty and students will develop a health education campaign to educate women about health issues and health care access. A pre and post monitoring effort in 20 villages will help determine the reception and use of the health messages.

For IFHE Centennial Celebrations2008 the International Federation for Home Economics Development Fund, arranged the Centennial Quilt project for contributing to funds for Centennial grants. Two quilts were assembled, as 110 squares were received from all over the world. The larger quilt, 8x10 squares/feet, was displayed high on the wall in the Lucerne Convention Center where it drew much attention. A second quilt, 5x7 squares/feet, was assembled and presented to the International IFHE Office in Bonn, Germany, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of IFHE in Switzerland.
