It’s past midnight so I can say that we are leaving for Zambia – again – TODAY!!! Since my journeys to Zambia started in June 2012, I have experienced and learned so much each time I have gone. It’s hard to believe that I am so fortunate to be able to go there for the 5th summer in a row! At the end of this year’s program with 10 students, the total number of students impacted by SLHS in Zambia will be 43! And several of them who came on the program as undergraduate students continue to be graduate students right here at Purdue!
Along this journey we have met so many amazing people who have helped us in so many ways, inspired us with the work they are doing, and taught us so much! We started with 5 community partner organizations and have grown to now have worked with as many as 12 different organizations. With the friendships I have made during these past five years through working with some of the same organizations each year, I feel as if I am going to my home away from home!
Excited to be there again this Sunday!!!
