When Mark and Darlene Zschech first started their NGO it was called Hope:Rwanda. But let’s face it – there have been more wars, genocides, and other unimaginable atrocities that have affected this world in the last 30-40 years or so than those that happened in Rwanda in 1994. And so what began as Hope:Rwanda transitioned to Hope:Global. And a mere 7-weeks ago, my wife and I had the opportunity to head to Rwanda with the Hope team: Marie in the capacity of an early childhood educator who was helping to train Rwandan nationals. And me in the capacity of the team’s media guy.
And it is because of this that I felt the need to write something of a back-story to this week’s video link. It’s exciting for me, as some of my footage from this recent trip made the final cut in this Village of Hope promo video that is hitting the globe at the moment! And – even if they hadn’t – I was privileged and blessed to have been a part of the process anyway! The even more exciting news for me though, is that it doesn’t stop there: you can also find out more about Hope through this week’s partnership with a fantastic for-profit company called Sevenly (every week they support a cause, and donate $7 from every product sold that week to their promoted cause… this week, Sevenly is promoting Hope:Global!).
God has got something big happening here. And I get to sit in one of the box seats as he does! But I digress: that’s enough about me. Check out the video already would ya! 🙂
