SLHS in Zambia 2015: it’s official!

Today we decided that we are going to Zambia again this summer! Despite fewer applicants this year due to concerns of families over the Ebola outbreaks in West Africa, and an initial scare over extremely high air fares that looked like they would increase program costs significantly, we have come through!! We have a team of students and will soon be starting preparations and classes – the third time for me doing this, and looking forward to my fourth trip to Zambia. It feels like Zambia is becoming my second home as I have so many memories and friends there now! 🙂 Here are a few…..

I’m excited to have the opportunity to go to Zambia again……

2015 begins….

We are back after the semester break and Zambia is on our minds!! Students for the program have been selected and informed and we are awaiting their acceptance! We are also working hard on the budget for the program but higher air fares have increased program costs :(. We are continuing to work with our travel agent to see what we can do to reduce the program costs…..

Also over the semester break I was able to get our beautiful chitenge fabric tailored – wait for pictures to be posted (hopefully soon!) 🙂
