This is where you come in …

11 May

After going through all the necessary channels to accept tax-deductible US donations through the Peace Corps, I am humbly asking for your assistance in funding the construction of a daycare center in my village, Vikelani Abantwana Crèche. In the coming days, I will be writing more and sharing photos to inform you of what is at stake here and how you can play a role in empowering these good people in improving their community. Your help can come in many ways; not just dollars, but organizing an event or other fundraising ideas. But to start off, check out this link and share it:

For more background information on this project, see this previous post, ask me any questions that might be on your mind, and/or stay tuned for details as they unfold. Thanks!

    I am thrilled to report that all of the money for the Vikelani Abantwana Crèche construction project has been raised! I will update this website with progress on the building and the organization that will operate it in the coming weeks. For now I just want to reiterate how grateful I am for everyone who donated their money, their time and their talents to making this possible, especially friends and family in Youngstown, Ohio and Phoenix, Arizona.
