BENEFITING: SOUTHERN ADVENTIST UNIVERSITY
EVENT DATE: Sep 11, 2016
Chris and Edinah are both current students at Southern Adventist University (S.A.U) completing their Masters of Science in Global Community Development (GCD).
As part of their program, they are hoping to travel from their home in Kenya to Malawi in September 2016 in order to take part in the GCD program's field school. Once in Malawi, & after completing 6 weeks of intensive classes, they will spend 8 weeks out in the field working with a local NGO. Both Chris and Edinah are passionate about issues related to HIV/AIDs, child rights, education access for girls, and other current issues impacting the people of Malawi. They also plan to engage in community education on topics such as sustainable nutrition and access to services for orphaned children in order to help them realize their dreams.
The fundraising goal of $15,000 will help Chris and Edinah each cover their tuition and program related costs, as well as travel & living exspenses for their family of three during their semester-long stay in Malawi. Additionally, the excess will help fund their community projects with the local NGO.
As a couple in ministry, more than anything else, they look forward to sharing the living word of God with those they will meet while in the country and as such, they would like to express their prayful thanks to anyone who feels called to contribute that they may have the opportunity to increase their professional skills while showing Christ's love in action!
