School supplies for Haiti

July 25, 2014

Getting on the plane tomorrow to bring more school supplies to students in Haiti. Last March I met the students and staff  of St Thomas d’Aquin school ( k-12)  and shared some of the school supplies stored at the  EDAAD office in Tabarre, our partner organization on the ground in Haiti. I have a chance to return to Tabarre and hopefully visit more students and offer them some  supplies they can use for  school.

Thank you for supporting our efforts in Haiti, your donations help us brighten a  little piece of their world.

Shipment to Africa

Last spring  many of you generously gave Zetwal books and education toys for our  Noah’s Ark library in Cameroon as well as clothing and toys for the children of the community.  Zetwal would like to ship these items to Africa in Aug 2014 so they can arrive in time for Christmas. What better gift then books the children will be so excited!

Please consider donating for our shipment to Africa. We estimate the cost to be $3000 USD

Cameroon sharing the joy program

July 20, 2014

SHARING THE JOY– by Lucienne
One important gift I have received through the experience I gained working with people of different race and culture is the gift of presence. There is nothing more important than being present to people. In all the years I have been involved in “SHARING THE JOY” effort, one recurrent philosophy that I learn from each experience is the importance of “PRESENCE”. To be attentive to the needs of our ZETWAL families; the material, spiritual, emotional, and psychological needs of the people I am privileged to share the joy with. I believe without this mindfulness our efforts at extending a hand of friendship may become the source of self-serving maneuvers for both Zetwal and the communities we are engaged with: an act of charity may become an act of giving. Mindful of the importance of “Presence” I do not go into any community and determine what I perceive is needed without first listening to what the communities identify as a need. The more you learn about a community, the better you will be able to share the joy.
