Happy New Year! 2020 is officially in the history books and we look to this new year for better, healthier days with an answer to the pandemic. While the good news of vaccine roll out is encouraging, 2021 will still pose challenges for all of us. But, on this day, we want to celebrate the positive moments from 2020 and the hope we have for the months ahead.
While we did not produce a paper version of our annual Calendar of HOPE, we will continue to bring you images from our projects each month on our website. The picture above captures an exciting day at Nyangombe when all the local villages turned up to cheer on the teams who played for the local championship in a hotly contested football (soccer) match. It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon with a huge crowd appreciating the efforts of the players on both sides. Such moments of sheer joy and unbridled carefree fun are few and far between in this part of the world. Nyangombe took home the win!
