SUCCESS!!! Success is the word that best describes this latest trip to Zambia. When I left the U.S. on June 4th I had a list of 4 things I hoped to accomplish on this trip. When I returned on June 20th I had crossed all 4 off the list!
POSSIBILITIES PRESCHOOL - One objective was to check in with the Bill Dever Possibilities Preschool and the 60 children who attend. They are doing great! Their English has improved and they are learning their ABC's, shapes, numbers, and more. The feeding program has improved their cognitive ability and they are eager and ready to learn.
Because of your generosity, we were able to purchase sweaters (it's winter now) for all the children as well as crayons, coloring books and posters for the classrooms. Playground equipment will be coming soon!
STUDENT SPONSORSHIP - Another objective was to talk with some of the Sponsored Students and get to know them a little better. They are wonderful young people with big dreams and the determination to take advantage of the "gift of sponsorship" to succeed. More information can be found here
KAMITONU VILLAGE - This village holds the site for Preschool #2! It was so exciting to see where the next preschool will be built! With your support, we are hoping to get started on this school within the next few months!
MEDICAL MISSION - Last but not least, an inventory of medical supplies was taken and the beginning stages of planning a medical mission for 2019 has begun. More information to follow soon.
