Role: Volunteer

As a volunteer working behind the scenes with Just One Africa performing various tasks that help keep the momentum of change in motion, it is my delight to see all the amazing changes they are able to make in the lives of SO many.

The heart behind Just One Africa and it’s founders is that change happens in everyONE’s life touched by their presence. No ONE person or ONE life is to be untouched. The process begins in Kenya and touches lives across oceans then ultimately returns back to the communities in Kenya, where it began. The beads from the bead program are handmade by the widows and young mothers in Kenya, purchased by J1A and brought here to the states where teens in the “I AM One” clubs string the beads and then teams of volunteers and others, finalize the process of turning these beads into beautiful jewelry, ornaments, bookmarks and the like. With every touch to these products, lives are being changed for the better, knowing they are making a difference for someONE.

This organization is true to who they say they are. The founders gracefully demonstrate an earthy example of what Jesus asks of us as servants and disciples. To be able to serve with an organization who positively impacts the number of lives that Just One Africa does is honestly humbling to me! The work they do is awe-inspiring and encouraging to me! Just One Africa provides hope where hope seems impossible and it is done from a true servants HEART!
