After much prayer and reflection, I recently stepped out in faith and accepted an opportunity to serve with Mennonite Central Committee (MCC)’s Serving and Learning Together (SALT) program as an early years teacher in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe beginning August 14th, 2019 until July 11th, 2020. The SALT program provides a year-long cross-cultural service experience for Christian young adults from the United States and Canada to serve around the world in the areas of peace, relief and development.

As an early years teacher with MCC’s local partner, The Sandra Jones Centre, I will get the opportunity to teach Zimbabwean school curriculum to the children living in the centre. The Sandra Jones Centre is a home for orphans and abandoned babies and children which aims to restore them to physical, emotional and spiritual well being after abuse. I get the privilege to live at the centre which will provide me the opportunity to befriend and mentor the older children/young women, while learning from the knowledgeable staff.

Funds raised: $0.00 towards the goal of $6,300.00
