Photos and Story of 2017 Funds Raised!

Posted on October 31, 2017 · Posted in Uncategorized
This week our team returned from a trip to Kenya. They were able to spend time with the local education committee that SOHI helped form, as well as the elementary school which we supported through Spokenya 2017. Here is an update directly from the team who traveled to Kenya.
 
“We started out visiting the education committee. We got to hear about their main concerns, problems that need to be fixed (short and long term), and their goals to make it happen. We had the chance to watch David gift them some financial assistance from SOHI (Spring of Hope). It was such a blessing to see the community leaders come together desiring to empower their own community in education. Wow! 
 
We then got to go see it in action at a local elementary school! One of our team members got to do the ribbon cutting of brand new classrooms that SOHI had built for that school. The students sang to us, danced with us and took tons of photos with us!”
