The A to Z Literacy Team Has Landed in Zambia!

The A to Z Literacy Team Has Landed in Zambia!  By Betty Trummel

Hello from Lusaka, Zambia.  The moment we arrived in here, we hit the ground running and took off in several directions! We were picking up our NINE pieces of luggage, exchanging US dollars for Zambian Kwacha, activating our Zambian cell phones, airport pickup from Ben (from the Village/School of Hope), getting a few groceries, and finally (me) taking a taxi to my lodging here in Lusaka….Serenity Lodge.

Mal and Alia continued on to the Village/School of Hope in a rural area north of the city.  All of us settled into our respective “homes” for the next two weeks, and immediately got into more planning and preparations for the busy days ahead.

Any butterflies (a normal feeling) 92A3B62F-8DEB-4886-8201-D524EFB805E2.jpegI might have felt when we embarked on this journey Friday night have turned to utter excitement and I am happy to be back here with A to Z Literacy, doing what we do so well…spreading the gift of literacy around the world and using our talents as teachers to help others.

Follow our blogs…and come along on this journey with us.  Thanks to all of our loyal supporters who help with fundraising efforts throughout the year. You’re helping us to fulfill our mission and enabling us to send shipments of books, sponsor school lunches, engage in local Illinois outreach, do our work here in Zambia, and so much more.  We couldn’t do this without you!
