“Sponsoring Idah has meant that I am beginning to help meet the need for educating young women in Zambia. I have been inspired by my daughter, Jenna Metz, a former Peace Corps volunteer as well as the book “Half the Sky” to reach out to meet this need. I will get to meet Idah and the other members of the Bakashana family when we visit in August. Idah has opened my eyes to the many obstacles to getting educated in Zambia. These include travel, family issues, inadequate light to study and some days an empty stomach. I am excited to be working with Claire to address some of these issues. I think working with individuals one on one gives you the ultimate satisfaction of helping to change a life and in doing so, her family’s life as well.”
-Cindy Valentine
