Harvest at VOH Chongwe: This Week at Villages of Hope

Check out what's been going on this week at Villages of Hope-Africa...

VOH Burundi Singing Club

IMG_0082VOH Burundi has started a singing club led by Francoise, a friend from the local church. Francoise is teaching the children voice training exercises as well as a lot of new songs. The children are having a great time together at this new club and we all enjoy hearing them practice!

Prayer at VOH Chongwe

IMG_0083_2Last week the children and staff at VOH Chongwe took time to pray for children in Zambia and around the World who are being abused or living in places where there is war or other difficult and challenging situations. The gathering was a time of mixed feelings for the children, feelings of both sorrow and thanksgiving. They were sorrowful to learn more about how some of their friends around the world have to live and yet thankful because they are protected, safe, and cared for at Village of Hope. We plan to make this time of pray for children around the world an annual event.

Kenya Broadcasting Corporation Visits

IMG_0086Children and staff at VOH Kenya had a great time visiting and talking with a crew from the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation and the National AIDS Control Council (NACC) of Nairobi.

The visitors came all the way to Kisumu from Nairobi to create a short TV program highlighting VOH Kenya and how we are supporting the community and working with vulnerable children giving them quality care and a hope for the future.

This is not the first time that the NACC has visited VOH Kenya and we are very happy to see the partnership between the two organizations continue to grow and strengthen.

VOH Malawi Business Projects

IMG_0087One of the ways VOH Malawi equips the next generation is by having the teens work on business projects to broaden their knowledge and skills. Recently they went out and bought seeds and fertilizer using a small business loan. They worked the ground, watered, and weeded and now are starting to see the fruits of their labor. They’ve grown beautiful cucumbers, which they will be picking shortly and selling. Seeing the success of their efforts is a huge encouragement to everyone involved!

Environment Day at VOH Mongu

IMG_0084June 7 was Environment Day at VOH Mwanza. Moms, staff, and children were all involved in one way or another – slashing grass, raking leaves, gathering trash, cutting dead trees, collecting wood, planting trees, etc.

Everyone was so happy with the results and had such a good time working together that we have decided to make this a regular routine in order to build good work ethic and keep our grounds clean and tidy!

UNICEF Donates to VOH Zimbabwe

IMG_0083Last week VOH Zimbabwe received a donation of chemicals and equipment needed for their science classes from UNICEF through the ministry of education. They were planning to try to raise $2000 for these things but were thrilled when instead this donation worth much more than that was made! Now the children can do both chemistry and physics experiments.
