FGHL Blog: Megan Quinn - ETSU Students in South Africa: Uplifting vulnerable children with aid and social support
Jul 18 2011
During the last two weeks, my colleague, Twanda Wadlington and I have had the opportunity to collaborate with another local non-government organization (NGO) to implement a health promotion program during the winter school break. Legae La Bana (Home for the Children) is a local NGO focused on providing daily meals and social support to the orphaned and vulnerable (OVC) children in Munsieville. The program centered on health related issues, while incorporating team building, arts, sports, and academics. The program also assisted in identifying student leaders in the community that can assist with future Thoughtful Path projects.
