Where are they now?

MACLEAN ONSEWA, SEEDS OF PROMISE

Maclean has returned to Malawi to launch a new ministry called Seeds of Promise, a program focused on sustainable agriculture and farming. Malawi is currently experiencing one of the worst food crises in its history, with millions of the population suffering due to lack of food and water. Maclean's vision to build a farm will have far-reaching effects on the communities we serve as he supplies our sites with maize and fresh produce.

GOMEZGANI CHIRWA, LONJEZO HIGH SCHOOL 

Gomezgani is working with YouthCare Ministries on the construction of their new high school! The closest school for the kids in Chitipi is miles away and the cost of tuition prohibits many from entering the classroom. The opening of Lonjezo High School at YouthCare would mean access to free education for hundreds of kids in the
 coming years! Gomez hopes to begin construction this winter with the school expected to open its doors next fall. What an exciting next step!
