Our trip is June 17-28.  We're excited to be bringing new textbooks to children who have never held their own book in the classroom. We're blessed to have donors that have been able to make this happen.  We'll be bring sustainable feminine hygiene kits for girls to stay in school.  Did you know that teen girls miss school for 5-6 days per month when they have their period?  These kits are washable and help keep them in school for 2-3 years. 

We're working their gardens, the classrooms with the children, teaching sewing projects that will turn into micro-enterprises, working on the clean water systems and so much more!!

And the women we've been helping develop their own projects with chickens and farming...well, we'll get to meet them and work alongside.  AND so much more...
