I am still in awe from such a beautiful Zambia fundraiser event that was thrown last Friday. It was an informative opportunity to hear from Dwankhozi Hope founders Beth and Matt MacLean and get a history of the organization and QAE's partnership with Dwankhozi. The event recruited the insightful QAE staff who went to Zambia last year and shared their experience and classroom connections with their Zambia relationship. This night has really jump-started my excitement for our late June travels and the learning potentials it will bring back to QA. Thanks to you and my past classroom families, more than enough money was raised to send me on my way! I am left touched and appreciative of your generosity and shared excitement.
It's time for me to brush up on my Nyanja so I'll say it again, zikomo, zikomo, zikomo...thank you, thank you, thank you!!
A huge zikomo to Erin K. Heidi Roth, Kristi Barnes and her in-laws Dr. and Mrs. Barnes for hosting such an event! And to the Canlis family and those whom donated eats and drinks. You really out-did yourselves!
