UGANDA - Jennifer Hoeve of Canada and Linda Nakaibale of Uganda recently spent a week in Kabale and surrounding villages. They agree that the most interesting part of the field visits was the village savings and loan association. Jennifer called it a “spectacular opportunity” to apply her university knowledge and Linda was glad to learn and apply it in her own community.
ZAMBIA - Greetings friends, In my last update “THIS is What Change Looks Like!”, I shared stories and testimony from people whose lives have been changed by our programming and activities. I discussed how we often get figures from our programming evaluations that tell us the what of change, but not the how. We can use stories to understand the data more deeply.
EAST AFRICA - We had waited in vain all week for a glimpse of Kibo, the summit of Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in all of Africa. Like the Psalmist, we were contemplating from where does our help come.
NIGERIA - Nigeria has suffered many injustices leaving many hungry, hurt, angry, and bereft of the peace that God wants for His children. Marvel with us at how God is working through World Renew, Beacon of Hope, and African Widow and Orphan Support
