Wow, they are an incredible organization that gets the job done...and done well! Local impact that is measured, long-lasting and sustainable. I'm grateful for all that they do and who they are as a team.
I traveled to Zambia to help train the well drillers in air rotary drilling. The people were very friendly and welcomed me with open arms. Seeds of Hope did a great job of hosting. I found that they had truly done some amazing things with very little. In the time since I have been there, the organization has continued to grow and do even more amazing things. I highly recommend anyone interested in helping to consider investing time in this organization.
